    Anyone have experience with the above optic? I'm wondering how the FOV is?

    I know its got a slightly narrower tube than other models, but if the target aquisition is just as fast and I can see a bit better around 300yds I'd be happy.

    I don't have that much trouble with irons at that distance, but this would replace another dot sight, so I'm wondering if the 2x magnification makes much difference?

    isnt the 2x the lens that attaches in front of the actual sight?

    Older thread but I have some experience with this one. I've been using it for several years on an inline muzzle loader and love it. Throw it up to your shoulder, keep both eyes open, acquire target, & press the trigger. I've taken several nice deer on the run out to 150 yards. I don't think you will be happy out past 200 yards though as the dot will cover up a lot of the target. I have 2 or three of them that I bought at the same time and all are on short to medium range brush guns (inline muzzle loader, win model 100 in 308 & a ruger .44 carbine). Being an aimpoint, it goes without saying that it's well worth the money.

    I had heard nothing but great things about them (like the rest of the aimpoint line). I had actually ordered one once, but then a couple days later I got a notice that the order was cancelled because it was out of stock. I ended up never going back to buy one, but I wouldn't have regretted spending the money.

    You get technology from maybe one generation back for a good price (<$400 pretty much anywhere), which still gives you a great dot size and battery life that is still measured in months, if not years (change it every 6 months and you're good to go).

    A 2MOA dot (the one I was going to get) would only cover 4" at 200 yards, so it shouldn't be too unusable. I printed a 6" 3-shot group at 100 yards with my old 18" cylinder-bore 12g using foster slugs and a red-dot.

    FOV doesn't really matter since you shoot with both eyes open!
