Thinking of buying a couple to put on a 10/22 and my AR15. I figured neither one has much recall so should be fine there. Let me know what your experiences are with them please. I have a cheap Firefield red dot and it was ok until it lost zero and now I can't adjust it. I'm thinking of buying a Buriss fast fire 2 but don't want to spend the extra money if the bushnell works fine. Thanks

Its not what you asked about, but I have a Primary arms micro dot and I would definitely recommend them as a budget red dot.

I seen the vortex but didn't want to spend $400-500 on one. I figured for the price range I would go with the Leupold or trijicon.

What do you have it on and have you had any issues zeroing or holding zero? Thanks for pointing this one out I didn't know anything about it.

I'll second the primary arms. I've got a fried that has one and it works great.

Its on a .300 Blackout Ar right now. No issues so far, but less than 200 rounds thru it. I think it has the 2 MOA dot also, which is nice, a lot of the red dot sights have really huge dots. There are plenty of other reviews online, and I know 2 other guys who have one with no issues also. Texas company, supposedly real good customer service if you have any issues (I have never needed it).

the venom and viper should retail around $250 same as a FF3 where as delta points RMR and Razor are yes that $450 range

I had one that shook apart on a G35. It would probably be fine on a AR or 10/22.

Didn't see that they were coming out with two new ones. Think I'm going to try the bushnell this time and order the Vortex next time for my comp. pistol since it will have more recoil. Can't go wrong with vortexes warranty on a red dot.
