Well I got it yesterday and was all excited to see it. I was following the tracking on the package and saw that it was going to arrive. I got home and there it was. First thing I noticed was this
Manufacturer on Amazon stated it was made in Japan??? So I was skeptical. Some of the reviews said you cannot see the fiber optic green dot without the battery on and they were not kidding. At first I thought it was non existent, no green dot what so ever. I put it the batteries that came with it, it actually came with two sets of watch like batteries. I put them in and there was the green dot, but it was weak and a bit blurry, could be my eyes but it was not a crisp dot like I've seen on other scopes. The lenses have a purple hue to them that seems to pick up on every reflection around making the eye piece difficult to get a clear picture through. I paid $66 for it so I guess the saying holds true "you get what you pay for"
The packaging wasn't bad
It sure does "look cool"
You can clearly see the purple tint on the lens
This is with the battery on
in direct sunlight with the battery off it is actually bright.
Now it just got to get it to the range
