I picked up this CenterPoint red/green sight when I was scrambling for an optic to mount on my Sig 522 in lieu of receiving iron sights. I never ended up ordering iron sights, because this CenterPoint has done the job perfectly. In fact, I bought another one of these for my Hi-Point 995TS. Pros: The price can barely be beat for a red dot sight. This has never lost zero, even after being transported from range to range in the range bag and being banged around. In 4 months, I still haven't had to replace the batteries, even after leaving it on overnight at least once. Clarity is great for the price, I've used this sight indoors and have still been able to shoot well throughout. The mounting system is included with the sight, and easily attaches to a picattinny/weaver rail with no tools required. An extra battery and allen wrench is included in the package. Cons: While both the red dot and green dot are adjustable, the lowest adjustable setting is still quite bright. In an outdoor setting this functions well, but it slightly bright in an indoor setting. The width of the dot is around 4 MOA, and does not allow for precision shooting (for the price, this is still quite good). The shroud is quite large for the size of the sight, but eye relief is good and clarity is still good in limited light settings. The bulk of the sight does take up a large part of the field of view, so it will take getting used to; it is a step down from most holographic or high dollar red dot sights, but a step up from iron sights in general. I have used and own multiple red dot or holographic sites (Aimpoint, EOTech, Trijicon, etc...) and I had very low expectations for this particular optic. I was quite surprised by the level of quality for this relatively cheap sight. I would not recommend this for a serious shooter's AR setup, but would highly recommend this for a smaller caliber non-competition/non-precision rifle (.22 plinker) or a pistol caliber field/truck gun (9mm carbine). A+ for value, B for quality
