A rifle sight as one of the daily deals? Sweet. How long before we can see gun deals on Woot again?

vote-for42vote-against

Keep 'em comin' Woot! :D

Glad to see even a glimmer of a hint of something shooting-related.

I may just have to buy one of these to prove a point.

vote-for3vote-against

I have one of these on my Wii zapper, it rocks.

vote-for6vote-against

You'd probably need additional hardware (like a high-cant mount) to use this on something like an AR-15. Just FYI.

vote-for7vote-against

Based on a quick web search, this is an excellent sight at an excellent price. I always buy Woot's gun related stuff just to keep 'em comin', so I'm buyin' this too.

@trendkill7577: Yup, and unlike in a video-game they actually do something in Real Life.

vote-for4vote-against

@scottydl: The review at http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-603330.html&amp& says it was made for AR15's and it should fit anything with a Weaver rail mount.

Amazon is selling this for $329, with a few other sellers at $199. Not sure of the price discrepancy there.

Anyway, most people interested in buying this would already know, but it's not a scope. It's a sight or target acquisition aid. It makes it easier than the front/rear iron sights on a gun because you just have to point the dot inside the reticle on your target then it's centered.

This deal brought to you by the letter "R"

vote-for6vote-against

This is $100+ cheaper than pretty much everywhere else I can find.

Has anyone used this before? I'm not really familiar with 'em.. The reticles look pretty unique, and the 3-dots look like they'd work decent as pseudo mil-dots for long range.. seems like they'd work great with a magnifier.

@scottydl: If you had low-profile/railed gas block, it should clear fine. Although with a standard fixed sight, yea, probably.

I thought this was a device to help with male erectile dysfunctional

I'm so embarrassed

vote-for2vote-against

@scottydl: What makes you say that? To me it looks like it would mount just fine on an AR (with a flat top or an accessory rail) without any extra parts.

You might want a higher mount for comfort, but I don't see any problem mounting it as is.

edit: drchops' link has a picture of it mounted on a flat-top AR.

vote-for3vote-against

@drchops: Too bad you aren't in the market for one anymore. Woulda been perfect a few months back.

Range day today; it was fun.

vote-for3vote-against

@rustybender: I think what he was probably getting at, is that you'd need a cantilever mount to clear the standard front sight.
As it is, it'd be like "top 1/6th cowitness" heh

vote-for5vote-against

@rlapid2112: Yeah...now I just gotta get the damned thing zero'd.

The fun part? I don't have a lead-sled, a stand, a range, a boresighter, a spotting scope or decent targets (+ everything else) :) - my old range had most of that stuff so I never needed it heh.. I'm also lacking patience and money for ammo.

I do have some homemade sandbags and some binoculars though, so I'm close :D. That AR I built shoots AWESOME groups, they just aren't where my dot's pointing lol

vote-for5vote-against

Woot - Next we need a Hornady Lock-N-Load progressive reloading press kit for around $200! Get on that would you?

vote-for2vote-against

I have been wanting a sight for a while. Seems better than a UTG. Oh well I'm in for one.

vote-for2vote-against

@scottydl: I actually agree with your statement. Lower 1/3 co-witness for your iron/backup sights. I would think it would be hard to shoot with the optics that low. In fact, on my son's Aimpoint, I got a taller mount for the very same reason. You could use it, but your cheek-weld would make you tilt your head more to get your eye even with the scope.

Edit: @drchops said what I did, but I didn't read it. My bad.

@drchops: I have a .223 boresite if you wanna borrow.

This is way better then the normal 1000 points it cost.

Reticle sights don't kill people. People kill people.

I don't get to say this a lot but I am "in for two." I had a blast setting up this sale. If yall want more items like this its going to have to sell out. Tell your friends!

vote-for2vote-against

Haven't heard much of them, but at a good price I gave it a gamble.

vote-for3vote-against

@brutherford: I would think that anything over $99.99 on this site would have some difficulty selling out, depending on quantity available. NOt trying to be negative, just my .02 observation.

I do appreciate this deal, and I am buying one and telling a couple of friends about the deal.

I was just wondering, any chance of an eotech popping up on here. I kinda like those.

vote-for2vote-against

@drchops: I have sandbags too, the lowes playsand in bags. I would love to have a spotting scope, but everytime I go to a store to look around, I wind up looking at them but buying more ammunition.

I built a dirt mound/shooting bank behind my house so I can shoot at my home and not have to travel. It took me a while, as I didn't really want to pay for tons and tons of dirt to be delivered.

vote-for3vote-against

If I had the cash, I'd be in for 3. Pride-Fowler stuff is really nice. The Japanese glass is amazingly clear and their reticles are intuitive and very easy to use.

If you want to build a gun that you see in video games and movies, get the EOTechs and ACOGs, if you want a solid shooting, versatile multipurpose rifle, these is one of the better choices on the market.

vote-for4vote-against

This is a great deal on this particular excellent red-dot sight system. A few of the guys I work with on the Sheriff's Department have this red-dot sight on their department issued A2's and A4's. They love em. I've played with theirs and liked it a lot but I never got one... until now. I've been using a Barska and it is about to be replaced.

In for two. One work - One home. Woot! :D

vote-for2vote-against

In for one if you look at the MSRP on this bad boy it's 449.00 Don't get cheap scopes on ebay or amazon.

vote-for5vote-against

I wish I had an extra $135 laying around. What a darn good deal.

vote-for2vote-against

In for one. Not a lot of reviews out there on this one, but given that PFI's scopes seem to be universally loved by their users, it's probably a pretty reasonable bet. I need a good RDS that can act as a temporary optic on my guns until I purchase their "final" optic.

Real question in my mind is whether this keeps a zero if you change reticules... if it does, that considerably improves its value in my mind, because that's sure as hell not a feature found in cheaper RDS's.

youtube video on scope http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhKcMUmPcDg

If you have an ar with a carry handle, you may be able to mount it using this http://www.amazon.com/AR-15-Scope-Mount-Weaver-Rail/dp/B000FX305O/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1326737003&sr=8-2

worth 9 bucks to find out

vote-for2vote-against

@hellboy999: Definitely the way to go if you have a carry handle.

vote-for-8vote-against

well I have a trijicon ACOG on my colt 6940 but hey maybe I could put this on one of my mosins or ruger 10/22 lol haha.....if it aint mil spec and battle proven then im not gonna trust my life to it.

vote-for5vote-against

@brutherford: If it doesn't sell out just run it again, preferably in a couple of months when I have some spare money to trick out my rifle. :)

vote-for8vote-against

@nbirnbaum2: the only thing milspec means is over priced. i replaced my mil spec plate carrier because it shredded within two months. a forty dollar option lasted better and was more comfortable

vote-for2vote-against

Weaver ring mounts or are they Picatinny ring mounts.

vote-for5vote-against

@nbirnbaum2: There are NSNs on the PFI Radid Reticle 4-20x40 scopes, and I believe their 1-4x24.

The long range scopes see quite a bit of use with contractors, "civilian DoD employees" and Army scouts. Their long range reticle is superior to mildot. Ranging is almost automatic within 800 yards.

All PFI optics are built to milspec, but they market their stuff to shooters and not mall ninjas, so they don't feel the need to slather that label all over their product. The term milspec is over used and often times incorrectly.

The High on Fire t-shirt I have on right now surpasses military specification.

vote-for6vote-against

@nbirnbaum2: That's one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard. If you did some research on this sight then you would know it is "mil-spec" and it is already "battle proven."

vote-for3vote-against

How would this compare to my EOTech 552?

vote-for3vote-against

@face76: They are similar. The 552 uses AA batteries which is nice, but you are only limited to one reticle. The 552 is also night vision compatible if I remember correctly the Action-4 is not. But if you don't want to spend $500 on a new EoTech this is a great alternative.

vote-for2vote-against

@face76 (Disregarding cost):
PROs Rapid Reticle: It weighs a little less, may have longer battery life, lifetime warranty, & has 4 different reticles.

PROs EOTech: Shorter, superior mounting out of the box (IMO), intuitive reticle, & uses common AA batteries.

Probably more, but this is what comes to mind without bashing one product or the other.

EDIT: Yeah, what @brutherford said!

vote-for2vote-against

@rlapid2112: I've used a couple different EOTechs on the receiver and handguard, with risers and without. This isn't going to sit too much lower than an EOTech is.

Given my choice, I wouldn't use either without some sort of riser.

vote-for2vote-against

I have a couple of rifles with EoTech's mounted to them, both of them with magnifiers behind them and I don't need a riser for any of them. Just my .02 cents.

vote-for2vote-against

@matt1976: Look at the mounts; they'll need risers or a different mount ring(s). It mounts as low as the base ring that came with my Aimpoint (son's, now). My EOTech, with the stock mount, sat higher that the Aimpoint.

Edit: Look at the "In the box" picture. Those rings are low for an AR.

vote-for2vote-against

This is just a curiosity question, but given the things people have said about this here, plus certain comments on the product page, I'm wondering ... does this have some kind of parallax reduction mechanism akin, in result, to a holographic sight?

If I'm completely off-base even asking, please don't get upset. I have the misfortune of living in a state and city where any shooting-related stuff has to remain almost entirely theoretical. So, again, this is really just about my curiosity.
