The PMRS is a compact, lightweight multi reticle sight with a 3 M.O.A. dot, crosshair, 10 M.O.A. dot crosshair and a 65 M.O.A. circle with a 3 M.O.A. dot.. It features a panoramic view. It comes with an integral weaver style mounting rail. Batteries and rubber lens cover are included.
The BSA Optics PMRS Sight is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Lower profile than BSA 30mm RD sight, four different reticules.
A little dim during very bright daylight.
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
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.
improved Red dot with huge triangle reticle insted of small dot, barrels: APEX ,JJ ceramic 16' , JT ,3000 psi nitro, Revolution X2 hopper.
Sensitive to splatter, practically 33x15, hard to see reticles in a bright day
Nicely made, nice optic, attractive disign, looks cool.
The key of this red dot that it provides multiple reticles.
Cross, crossed circle, big, small dot.
Becouse it is easier to see them then dot,
they better then dot, but none of them are great.
Unfortunatley in this one it is hard to see them, it is not bright enough.
The other reticle then dot is the way to go,
in military for combat the best is big thick ^ or big triangle.
I made triange in my Daisy Max view.
No more waisting time becouse of loosing dot.
Problem: To make compact design the big brigtness selector was placed bettween red dot LED and lense taht way so lense is used only partially,
up to 1/3 of it useless. As result it is very restrictive in vertical direction. Instead of promised lense characteristic 33x22 it is about 33x15.
Also to make it bit shorter the extra mirror covered with cap with a glass window was added to its construction like kind of periscope design.Too overcomplicated and does not improve brightness. If window is splattered sight become useless and it is possible to clean at home only. That hapened with mine in the first day.
Several artificial problems with performance were created just to make it look little better .
Check other red dots with multiple reticles, this is hardly applicable in paintball.
Look at something like BSA RMRS or ATN Ultra Sight first.
5 out of 10
