Things I liked:

Unfortunately nothing, except perhaps the appearance.

Things I would have changed:

It would be immensely helpful if the product actually worked as advertised. It did not. Also the manual seems to be inaccurate, describing a separate on/off switch for the red dot next to the rheostat, which is not there.

What others should know:

I think I was shipped a defective, used item. The manual stated the battery would be in a plastic bag to prevent early discharge but it was installed in the scope. There was no separate on/off switch as the manual stated, but turning the rheostat to position 9 (of 12) seemed to turn off the red dot. Also the red dot was all the way over on the right side at 2 to 3:00 with no way to center it. I would not buy it again and hope I am refunded my full purchase price with no restocking fee. This should not be restocked, it should be returned by PA to the manufacturer or destroyed.

Things I liked:

It fits 5/8 OR 3/b (11mm) dovetail rails.

Things I would have changed:

- No magnification. - Red (dot) reticle only. (See below...) - Elevation & Windage KNOBS would have been nice. (What you see are just removable caps; adjustments must be made with screwdriver.) - Heavy.

What others should know:

This is my THIRD attempt to find a red dot scope for my Trevox, whose fixed sights seem worthless. This is my second BSA scope, that Pyramyd recommended when my first 11mm Red Dot would not fit the 11mm rails on my Trevox pistol, although the specs suggested they were compatible. My first BSA scope was defective. (See previous review here.) The "dot" was a huge, useless red blur. The "dot" on my second BSA scope is better...smaller...especially on the highest brightness setting. However, less eye relief seems better than more (this is NOT unlimited eye relief), so might work best on a rifle...not a pistol. It remains to be seen whether I'll return this and ask for a refund this time. If so I guess I'll just throw the Trevox in the trash? Personally, I would and cannot recommend anyone purchasing either of these from any vendor.

  • Wolverine from USA asked:

    With a set parallax at 50yrds, how would this work on a 2400KT for 20yd shooting?

    • Tyler Patner from USA answered:

      It would work just fine. There's not enough magnification for the parallax setting to be a big issue at distances other than 50 yards

  • James from USA asked:

    I just bought this and the red dot is all the way on the right at about 2-3 o'clock. Is this normal?

    • Roger from USA asked:

      Will a BSA red dot scope hold up to a RWS Diana LP8 Magnum springer pistol?

      • oats from USA answered:

        I would go with the Hawk or UTG brand in my opinion.
