Unfortunately, my sample started malfunctioning after one day, and stopped working altogether in two days. There are some clear manufacturing issues going on here. After a few hundred rounds, the sight would intermittently stop working. It turned out that the intensity control switch was malfunctioning and not making good electrical contact. For a time a few jiggles would get it to work, although the settings no longer corresponded to what actually happened in the sight. Then the unit stopped working, period. Bad design, manufacturing quality control, or both.
Note: I have corresponded with one other gunner who has used and abused his Tru-Glo, and he reports excellent, trouble-free results. I am sending mine in for repair. If my problem turns out to be an anomaly and the repaired unit performs well, I will revise this review.
Too bad about the reliability issue, because this site is laden with some very nice features. First of all, it has four different reticles: a single dot, a circled single dot, an “X”, and an “X” with a dot in the center. You may select one of five intensity settings, in either green or red. All but the lowest of the intensity settings are suitable for bright daylight. You can use this sight in the desert, or in my poorly-lit indoor range.
Another nice feature of this unit was (I have to say: “was”) that the optics were pretty good. The red dot was crisp with no flare (watch for this when checking other red-dot sights) and the other reticles were similarly good.
The sight is very easy to zero in. The supplied Allen wrench adusts for elevation and windage. At the range I had mine zeroed at ten yards within about ten minutes. After that, as I said, the bullet went where the dot was pointed. Can’t beat that.
I really wanted to like this unit, but there are quality-control issues. Not recommended. RJB.
