Okay, I’ve tried very hard to like this optic, but I can’t.
Non-removable flip “down” lens covers. I absolutely hate them.
Can’t remove them or swivel them so they flip up or sideways.
Brightness settings. Supposed to have 9, doesn’t work.
The plus and minus buttons do nothing but power on/off.
Pressing + or - powers on, pressing both powers off.
It does seem to be plenty bright, so it’s still usable.
Circle dot/ Dot only. Doesn’t work. Circle dot only.
This one doesn’t bother me as I only want circle dot.
Solar and battery. Should work on either, right?
Only works on solar. And only when battery is installed.
Cover the solar strip, it dies. Remove battery, it dies.
Very small objective lens. I was hoping it was at least 22MM.
I couldn’t find the lens diameter when I bought it, my fault.
I find anything smaller than 22MM is uncomfortable.
If I place the optic farther down the rail, it helps with this.
But I can’t use the 3x with it that far away.
The HM3x is awesome and makes this set up very tolerable.
But it’s less optional now, as I’ll use the 3x most of the time.
Even when magnification isn’t desired.
I think I would have been better served with a 3x Prism scope.
Less money, less weight.
