Things I liked: Size
Things I would have changed: Have 1 dot, not the 4 or 5 that compose the dot .at rifle sight distance the dot is usable, at arm's length ( like on a pistol mt. ) it is not usable, the dot covers a 10" paper plate at 35yards. I had high hopes for this unit to use on my heavily modified 1322 .
What others should know: Not for arm's length sighting, like a pistol.
Things I liked: Easy to attain an on target zero with pistols. Sight picture is great. Dot adjustment is good. Works very well on a Crosman Vigilante and the Gamo P-85 Tactical. The quick release lets me easily change between guns with minimal re-zero necessary. As with all air guns and accessories, regularly checking fasteners to make sure they are secure is necessary.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
Things I liked: The sight is well made for the price . The dot intensity ( both red and green ) can be adjusted from low to high for low light and bright sun light . Adjustments for windage & elevation are precise and easy to do with the knobs . No screw drivers or coins required . My sight came with flip up lens caps even though they are not shown in the catalog photo ? I checked the model # on the box and this IS the sight I ordered . Lens caps fit well and are of good quality .
Things I would have changed: I would like to see this sight available without the quick detach lever to secure the sight to the mount base . It is very hard to zero this sight on the initial zero of the air gun . The hex set screw that locks the quick detach lever down fell out completely after 10 or 12 shots even when snugged down tightly . I was chasing shot groups all over the target . After I figured out the sight was loose I tightened the hex screw down after EACH shot and was able to zero my pistol . After getting the pistol zeroed I used lock tite BLUE to secure the sight to the mount base .
What others should know: I shoot this sight on a Browning 800 Mag. pistol in .22 cal . This pistol has DESTROYED two other red dot sights . I had a mount for a Rem. 700 center fire rifle drilled and tapped , plus two stop pins installed on this pistol . I did not have enough slots to have proper spacing to mount a red dot like the UTG 30 MM ( SCP-RD 40 RGW-A ( PY-A-651 ) sight that uses TWO Weaver type screws . If I were to use a red dot on a hard recoiling air rifle I would go with a sight that locks on the mount with two screws not a quick detach lever . Since lock tite has been used to secure the hex screw in place the pistol appears to hold zero ? Be advised the quick detach lever if released accidently will cause the sight to fall off the gun instantly . I will send another review after 250 -500 shots have been shot .

One of the listed features is "True Strength". What in Heaven's name does that mean? Is it more than marketing hype?
Will this fit a Browning 800 pistol?
Not without a dovetail to weaver adapter
Will it work on a heavy recoil , like RWS 48?
According to the description, it will work on every thing, including heavy recoiling firearms!
