    got one from cabelas, they are on sale and i like it. from packaging to qualityholding a zero to it seems to be what i was looking for without spending $400+ on a red dot, highly recommend it to anyone on a tight budget that needs a tactical optic

    I have one. It worked well for 6 months until I could save up for an Aimpoint.
    It works well other than the dot is larger and gets blurry at higher settings. The on button was easy to bump and I wore batteries out quickly. The Aimpoint is impossible to accidentally turn on which is ironic because the batteries last for years if I accidentally did.
    The Strikefire is down to $120 which is crazy cheap. They work very well if you keep feeding them batteries. I've never had problems with holding zero or durability with the vortex.

    Have one on my 50 Beowulf....The mount is like concrete if it holds up to this recoil...Here is my 2 cents on it

    Good red dot scope. You may want to add the flash killer. I found them on Amazon.com at a low price. Your scope is already threaded for it. It just screws in. Deer keep looking up at me in my tree stand. I finally figured it out why. They were seeing the light reflection on my scope lens.

    I got mine cheap from Cabelas and it does the job....Most retailers are selling them cheap now to make room for the Strikefire 2 which changes where the ON/OFF switch is since the original Strikefire ON/OFF is sensitive to accidental bumps turning it ON without you knowing it. Most just rotate it counter clockwise so that the switch is blocked by the upper receiver rail helping prevent accidental bumps turning it ON but then the windage and elevation adjustments become opposite.

    At $99 I ordered one to put on my Mini 14. I replaced the hand guard with an Ultimak rail so it will sit forward of the receiver.
