I have used it now for a while and thought why not share this information with you, maybe you have thought of buying a weapon sight then I am sure that this review will help you make up your mind.
Sightmark Ultra Shot Z-Series Reflex Sight Out of the box
When my Sightmark Ultra Shot Z-Series arrived, I could not wait to find out what the box held. After removing all the accessories I had been pleased with the results as they provided me with the reflex sight, tools to adjust the gun sight, a replacement battery, sight cover, and warranty.
I own a DPMS Recon 7.62 mounting the reflex sight was simple and a sturdy fit to the rail and found the construction of the weapon sight well constructed as they advised the firm makes them out of aluminum that is aircraft grade material.
When taking my firearm to the shooting range I was amazed that after zeroing in and started firing I hit a tattered five shot hole. I removed and reinstalled the Sightmark Ultra Shot Z-Series Reflex Sight at least four times and the unit still held zero. While shooting I could see that it held a wide field view, great to use while shooting close, and midrange targets.
The reflex sight comes with five settings to set brightness, and found the use of it in most lighting conditions without any problems from moving to dark shades to the bright sun.
