I've been reading mixed reviews on all of them, so I'll probably just pick one and see how it performs and if it don't hold up I'll buy something else.

When I end up happy with what I have, I'll post on it.

All true and your exactly right. Mixed reviews from "Cheap Chinese Crap" are expected.

We just have to be honest with ourselves that this stuff is basically "AirSoft" equipment and you'll be ok with it when it fails

All I can give is my personal experience with it....and I'm like you....what the hell, 20 bucks don't make or break anything

Ive got 2 right now that work great and Ive sent one back in the past....no muss no fuss. We love our Prime account

I've also noticed with Amazon reviews, many will leave a crap dishonest review on anything that is "inexpensive" so reviews are hard to go by. I've bought many inexpensive items there with bad reviews and haven't had a problem.

I think the first one I'll go with is the one Trailblazer dropped down steps and it still held zero and see what happens. I'm thinking if it will withstand the shock of that, it should hold up to 12 gauge recoil.

Reflex arrives tomorrow. Heading to the range Friday to tweak the factory irons and co-witness the reflex. After that, install flip-ups by co-witness reflex and irons by removing one at at time. In theory, it sounds good. Will it actually work?

No. Install the flip ups. Install the reflex. Sight in the irons through the reflex. Then sight in the reflex.

Factory Irons? On an AR? What does that mean? The gas block front sight, and a carry handle rear? Or some rail mounted irons, that you are just replacing?

Or are we talking about some other gun?

Regardless...do what backbencher said.

xratic!!!



Hey TroubleShooter, "REAPER" bought one of those ~$18 sights in question, it did fine on his PCC (HP 4095) and on the 22s, I have one on an AR also. But he used it on something with more "stank" (AK I think) and it did not hold up. Catastrophic failure. So I'd say "NO" on a 12g shotty. Seems like a 556 AR and PCC's are OK, and anything smaller. That is where I'd draw the line, IMO

Just got a similar one by Field Sport for $22. Was hoping to put it on my crossbow pistol, whose rear sight fell off somewhere. But alas, it wouldn't attach. Oh, well, it will get used on something I'm sure in the future!

For the price the NCStar 3/4" riser that Jayclimber referenced on page 1 is hard to beat, I have that riser on a couple different rifles and have been very pleased with them. In fact so far they have held up just as well as Wheeler, Yankee Hill and PRI risers that cost up to 4x as much.
