CHEAP ! CHEAP BATTERIES ! easy to use , except on tippman with flatline barrel you have to reverse some internal elevation adjustment components to allow a higher deflection otherwise you'll be staring at the top of the flatline barrel instead of downrange. Battery lasts a long time actually, the one that came with it died fast tho. Its fast , keep both your eyes open and dont focus on it you will see the dot floating over the barrel for VERY fast acquisition of your target (thus the 'reflex' sight name for this type of sight).
hard to clean if you get gun shot, appears to be really cheaply made but actually has taken a good drop or two here and sticking my 98/flatlne barrel thru the brush hasnt killed the sight yet either.
Yes it works for long distance shooting, for CIC (close in combat) its just too small to get used to.
takes hits ok, but can be tough to clean in the field , I carry a squirt bottle in my canteen case (sawed top off canteen so its a "hard" case now ,hinged)to clean it or my marker in the field.
Far as price goes LOL its hella cheap for a sight.I got it becuase i figured it would break after awhile and I can just get another but this one has lasted near 2 years now.
compared to my Military Comp M , reflex sight its actaully does nearly the same except my comp M has 1.5 power.
I'd recommend it if you are a sniper like myself with a tippman/flatline combo , but as far as moderate to close in matches you;ll be too busy dodging and laying down suppression to use it properly. thats when I drag out my automag or palmer.
