    Range report on Primary Arms Red Dot sight.

    I sighted the optic in at 20 yards at first. Then moved to 50 and finished. I had the optic closer to the rear of the gun but it was causing malfunctions because the brass would hit the optic and fail to eject so I moved it forward.

    The red dot held is zero. The dot covered the entire 3.5 inch square post it note at 50 yards so I don’t think it is a true 4 moa dot. But it still works for what I got it for. I shot a 30 round department qualification with just the red dot and then again with just the ACOG. The sight is handling the pounding recoil of the AR10 .308 recoil well so far. I will keep you updated. I liked the adjustments as they were positive clicks and sighting in was fairly easy unlike other cheap red dots.

    I picked up their M3 clone when they were running a special with the Ultimak AK rails on the cheap...

    I was very impressed with this thing right out of the box. Most of the stuff in this price range feels like cheap chinese airsoft junk, Primary Arms clones all feel and look very high quality. As you can see in this thread they just plain work. The AK and Ultimak are getting sold off, the M3 is staying:tongueout:

    I picked up a cheap $35 Airsoft sight to test and will order one of these to compare it to.

    I have the micro sight from Primary Arms also. Primary Arms red dots and scopes are the only budget sights I buy.

    I really need one of these for my .22, but I still have just a few more things for the AR that I gotta get first.

    I bought an Airsoft Aimpoint clone and claw mount from Redwolf Airsoft to put on my GSG-5. Looks good, feels good, so we'll see how well it does when I take it out shooting.

    Damn, if Ida known I would have added it to the VFG/front sight order I did a few days ago.

    So Alaskapopo and others, why go with a microdot over a larger PWA aimpoint clone?

    Don't you have a smaller field of view with the micro's?

    Mainly because the redot is a back up for me and must sit to the side. Also I prefer the smaller weight and size. I just sold my real M4 Aimpoints (both full size dots) and I place to get another T1 Aimpoint or a TR24 1-4 accupoint. Have not made up my mind yet. But if your going to get a dot sight for a serious rifle I believe the mini T1 can do anything you can expect a red dot sight to do. And its lighter and smaller. Always a good thing.

    I've got the same fakepoint on my SW AR-22, straight from the Chi-Comms on ebay. It rocks.

    I also have the Ultimak gas tube on my AK. Did you have any heat related issues with the sight??
