Excellent Reflex Sight

A great sight with superb customer service from Vortex. My pistol needed a different rail base. They knew exactly what I needed and shipped it out the same day I called. B&H's pricing was excellent too.

Love vortex!!

easy to use and install. one drawback is that the battery lid would not close once the battery was in the compartment. took a lot of pressure to get the threads to catch

Great RDS for the price and back by the best warranty in the industry. Only issue I have with it was the difficulty getting the cap on once the battery was inserted.

A great little MRDS

I just got this red dot for my Ruger 57, it works wonderfully well. The 3 MOA dot is perfect for me, I can easily aquire the dot and it shines brightly in the midday sun. The battery compartment was a little tight when I put the first battery in it, but other than that it's very convenient and easy to use.

Perfect for what I use it for.

This is a great Red Dot, and I love shooting with it. Pros: Works Easy Battery replacement Accurate Cons: Not many features bad option for concealed carry I use it for my USPSA pistol so I do not need a lot of features. If you want to CC with this you will want a pistol that you can co-witness with and change the battery an a regular basis so you do not find a time where you need it but have no dot.

question

will this mount on a ruger m77 compact 308. and will it take the 308 recoil?
Asked by: bruce r.
Not sure about a .308 but I have purchased two for handuns, a 9MM and a 40 Cal. and have not had any issues. I do have a Burris Fastfire mounted on my 556 and so far it has worked with no problems. I believe the Vortex and Burris products are very comparable.
