Review: First, I would like to preface this by saying that most everyone knows that markers have a finite range and that the markers also do not have the accuracy of a true fire arm. While I am sure that some markers are more accurate/consistent than others I am in no way judging this sighting device by the limitations of my marker or paint. I also find that in a lot of situations I will abandon using the scope and more or less "fire for effect". It does, however, give the marker that extra look that woodballers are into.

Key Strengths:

This baby is tough. I have taken some(I now have at least 3 direct hits to the front lens) direct hits to the front primary lens and have had no ill effects. The Scope is easy to use with brightness intensity from 0 to 11. I like the fact that you can go directly from 0 to 11. The dial is multi directional. The mounting screw are easy to use. A straight slot screw driver is all you need to tighten them down.

The price was right for this scope. I think that I paid about $30.00 for it at walmart.

Windage and elevation screws, as well as the battery compartment, are encased by metal caps and have O-rings to help keep moisture and paint out of the scope.

The 30mm rectacle is just about the perfect size. It is easy to keep both eyes open and let the red dot become part of your natural vision while firing the marker.

Key Weaknesses:

One of the only real weaknesses that I have found with this scope is that when I was adjusting the windage and elevation I had to turn the screws almost all the way out. I appeared to me that they had a small ball dent so when I turned them it make the "click, click, click" sounds. I had to turn the screws so far out that the ball dents were not hitting the "locks" that keep them from moving over time. This may have been just my scope. I have not looked at other scopes to check my theory. It kind of made me scared to adjust the scope any more than absolutely necessary. As it stands now the scope aims a little high and to the right (@50 feet it is about 6" in both directions). Other than this unique flaw I have found no other problems.... Unless you forget to turn it off ;) But that would be user error :)





Conclusion: I feel that this scope gives your marker that cool tactical look all the while giving you good form and function. It is well built and very sturdy. Other than my adjustment issues I have had no problems and it works great. I am going to give it an 8 just because of the issues that I have had...
