I have several red dot sights and sometimes they arent real clear. I wear glasses and I do better without them which seems to clear the dots. Good luck with the sight. Have a goodun!!!!

if you have astigmatism thats how dotsights appear, its normal.

you can tell if its the dot or your eyes by taking a picture through your dot sight. if the pic looks normal like a round dot and the sight while looking through it appears fuzzy or star pattern its your eyes. if both are the same its a malfunctioning sight.

The dot in my trs25 is round. Without my glasses it is fuzzy. Try turning it to a lower power level I run mine on 1 or 2 most of the time.

pretty much all cheap red dots will blur lower the power if u can and when u can should help a lil for grouping

also if u want a lil less expensive highquality red dot or any other scope try IJK optics never had a blurring problem or durability problem

droped my saiga of the back of my truck... landed right on its ijk holo sight it was comletely unharmed

remeber accuracy is usually not the guns fault but your skills

guns dont shoot well marksman shoot well
