I found a 2x - 30mm red dot scope by TruGlo. Does anyone have one or know much about this magnified red dot. Thinking about purchasing it and mounting it to a Buckmark.

I got one in July from Natchez. I put it on a 6" GP100. The 2x lens does distort a little bit and the unit is larger than it looks in the pictures. It was easy to zero and held its zero......for as long as it went. At about 400 rounds of shooting .38, I saw a vertical line through the lenses. I thought it was something on the front lens so I wiped it off. The line was still there. The dot was fine so I took the shot. Then I was able to see that the "line" was a crack in the lens that magnifys. I had a split image that looked to be different elevations through the lens.
Natchez says deal through the manufacturer, TRU GLO says deal with the retailer. I called TRU GLO and they said they would be happy to replace it and gave me an RMA number. I sent it back Priority Mail on Sept.8. I haven't heard back from them yet and was going to call this week to find out the status.
I've got an UltraDot back on the GP100 that has held up for 4 years now. I'm going to put the 2x one on a .22 carbine when I get it back.

I just got back from Sportman's Warehouse and bought this red dot scope.
