For years, TRUGLO was putting out optics of okay quality. However, this isn’t that TRUGLO. We’ve had this one about four months, and it’s proven to be rugged, tough and reliable. I’ve dropped it, knocked it about and submerged it, and it keeps going. The 2 MOA red dot is bright enough to be seen on sunny days; plus, it’s got a coaxial green laser to project the dot onto the target. We’ve used it on a .458 SOCOM AR, and the reticle stayed true.
If it was off, it didn’t accidentally turn on when fired; and when on, it didn’t flicker or turn off. It comes with an integral mount machined in with a QD lever for quick removal. The caps for battery, windage and elevation are all tethered via wire, which doesn’t bind when screwed on and off, as does rubber. Battery testing is inconclusive after only four months, but it hasn’t had to be replaced yet. With a street price around $250, it’s tough to beat.
