    Hey everyone, I have sort of a noobish question for ya'll because I know next to nothing about scopes or other optics.

    I bought this red dot sight, Leatherwood M-30 red dot and It arrived today, upon inspection, the front red lens seemed to be curved or slanted to the right side sort of like this ( \ ) if you were looking at it from the top down. The angle isnt that severe but I can't adjust the position of the line in this text box.


    Is this normal?

    Just got an email back from the company saying its normal. They explained that the diode emitting the light has was positioned on the side of the tube, and the front lens (Objective) was angled as to be lined up with it, so that it would reflect the dot back to the shooter.


    Was like 60 bucks, but got great reviews from everyone so I picked it up
