4 years
Products Used:
BSA 30mm Red Dot
Marker Setup: Tippmann X7, Rico tactical flashlight/ vertical grip, NcStar RD Sight, Laser w/ QD Mount.
Strengths: Lower profile than BSA 30mm RD sight, four different reticules.
Weaknesses: A little dim during very bright daylight.
Review: This sight is great, I've been though allot with it. It has great durability, although I haven't had a direct hit on the front of it, it seems like it could take one. I had originally purchased this for use on my real firearm (Stag AR-15) and it worked great, when I decided to upgrade, I thought I'd put it on my A5 (at the time); and wow, it was the greatest accessory I had put on it.

RETICULES: There are four available reticules.
-The first being a simple cross hair, it is a basic plus ( + )
-The second being a dot, as seen in many other sights.
-The Third being a dot with a larger circle around it (Similar to an eotech without the small lines)
-The fourth is almost exactly like an EoTech cross hair, except allot smaller. The dot in the middle is barley noticeable.

BRIGHTNESS: There are seven brightness levels. The brightness is the only downside, if you are in a large field and the sun is shining right on you, chances are, you going to have a bit of trouble finding your reticule if your marker is already brought up to aim. If your under shade, you'll see it perfectly, and in night combat, you can see it perfectly. Please note that during day combat, I usually have this setting on seven (Highest) and the reticule is usually the second, as the simple dot is difficult to sight in.

The sight I have came with an extra battery, and a small lens cover that slips on and off. It also came with a small flint free rag to polish the lens. In case anyone is wondering, the battery is called a CR2032
Conclusion: Overall I love this sight, I would prefer using this sight than the BSA 30mm RD sight any day, it's a great investment, and overall great product. Please feel free to comment and ask any questions.
