1 x 30 True Fiber Optic Green Dot Sight Sighting System Review
I am a huge supporter of buying quality when I can afford it, especially when it comes to weapon parts and accessories. When searching for an affordable dot sighting system I came across the 1 x 30 True Fiber Optic Green Dot Sight Sighting System sold on Amazon that bears a resemblance to the optical system of ACOG.
After reading and debating with myself, I bought the sighting system for myself and this is what I found regarding the unit.
Affordable Green Dot Sight
When I received the green dot sight, I started thinking that this product is affordable and not a fake as it may have the similarities of the fiber optic layout that resembles the ACOG where design and durability is concerned. This product is still a standalone unit with its own features.
The Japanese style multi-optics manufactured system and made in China made me a bit suspicious at first, however, when I held it in my hands, I found that it is sturdy for a reasonably priced weapon sight and does not need batteries to operate the fiber optic illumination. Nevertheless, you can use back-up batteries if you do find yourself shooting at night.
When it came to sighting the 1 x 30 True Fiber Optic Green Dot it was easy and simple. With my 15-22 rifle shooting with the sighting it has kept zero fine and have shot out thousands of rounds and it is still to the point. At night, I used watch batteries that were included in the package.
In addition, during the day the green dot is visible even in bright light. The only difficulty I found with the gun sight was that once you came out of the shade it was not that easy to spot the green dot in the light.
When attached to my rifle it mounts and looks great and provides you with a good eye level during shooting.

Pros and Cons

- Built to handle recoil

After reading 1 x 30 True Fiber Optic Green Dot Sight Sighting System Review, We can say that, customers have mixed feelings regarding the product. The product has received an overall rating of 3.4 stars when it comes to style and optics. Although a few number of customers are dissatisfied with the battery compartment and life of batteries when used.
Most clients are pleased with the perfect zero optics kept after shooting 300 rounds and satisfied with the aluminum casing durability. The unit is sturdy when placed on the rail of the rifle.
Another client had the following to say regarding the sighting system, “The optic is worth the price you are paying for it. The green dot is visible in the Texas bright sun, while the back-up LED works well in low light situations. The aim is right on target and required no adjustments. The only problem is the button that activates the LED as it is soft and you can easily start it by accident.”
If you are looking to pay less for a sight than the ACOG do not expect to compare it with the weapon sight you are going to be disappointed. The 1 x 30 True Fiber Optic Green Dot Sight Sighting System is a great product for the price that you pay when it comes to visibility of optics, durability, and recoil.
