    I just got mine in the mail yesterday, and mounted it on my SU-16. I did not get the one with the red/green option, but only the one with the red. I am probably going to take it to the range next weekend to sight it in. My initial impressions have been positive so far. All of the reviews that I read about it when I researched which red dot to get, gave this one good reviews. That being said it is no EOTECH or Aimpoint, but for the money from what I have read it's good deal. After I take mine to the range I'll let you know what I think of it then.

    on a Rifle that doesnt kick hard it should be ok

    They told me it would hold up on a 454 casull say 60 Full power rounds and 300 45 colt rounds and 150 meduim 454 round well heres the Results

    Yes the Sope mounts were tight and are still tight Red dot still works then im gonna glue it back together and mount on 22 .

    Bushnell told me i was over my warrenty and no fixy .

    Rings were tight but as you can see where it carved into the tube when it slide though the Rings.


    Edited for Bad keyboard leaveing out the C's

    Number 6-yes, please do let me know your results with it as i dont plan to buy mine until christmas.


    TC300mag1-wow, thats stinks. I may reconsider and save up money for an ampoint or such. If not, hopefully i'll have better luck since i plan to put it on a wasr-10 and the recoil is pretty mild.

    And thanks for the replies to both of you.

    red green?

    Why do I suddenly feel the need to build a scope out of duct tape? :p

    Bushnell Trophy reddots are perfectly good, I've been using one in scout position on my Mosin Nagant M44. Not a rifle known for being gentle, for what it's worth. Still holding zero after hundreds of rounds, so I'm pleased with it- especially having paid just over $60 for it (E-bay).

    You should note that a Kobra scope would not cost significantly more than a Bushnell, and that piece of Russian-made goodness is considered quite good for the money. It would also be an appropriate match of rifle and scope, aesthetically.
