Ratings & Reviews
Love the red dot sight. Feels solid, finish great. Never could justify the price of an Aimpoint, now I don't have to, and I feel like this sight is every bit as good. Primary Arms is a pleasure to deal with.
Extended battery life...........
....that is what caught my eye with this unit. Another PA Red Dot I have works great, but could not resist the extended battery life offered and have really come to enjoy the touch pads vs. rotary brightness control. My plan is leave this one on full time so dot is there if needed.The only reason for 4 Stars vs 5 is simply because the first unit I received had a windage adjust issue, BUT in true PA Customer Service fashion, a new unit was quickly shipped with a return shipping tag for the first unit. PA has become my first stop for every project. Shop and buy with confidence......now it's just a matter of time and rounds to test battery life run this unit and put it thru the paces.
Best deal out there!
by David Bechtold
Absolutely the best bang for the buck. I got this with the ADM lower 1/3rd QD mount and have a red dot that does what it should in a compact durable unit with the battery life of a unit costing 3X as much without the mount.
PA A Micro Dot
by Ozzie Gonzalez
Advanced micro dot is definitely my favorite besides Aimpoint products. The quality is there, the durability and reliability is definitely there, and the 50,000 hr of battery life.... WOW! No complaints at all! Will definitely be buying from PA again.
MD-ADS: Aimpoint Killer
by G.S. Mullins
Am running it side-by-side with an H-1, and it's just as good. For the money, a superb optic - clear glass, sharp dot, emitter is near-invisible. If it holds up in reasonable service, this is *the* RDS to buy!
Can't proclaim enough how rock solid this optic is
by Cameron Duke
Amazing red dot, impact/water resistance, best of the best battery life, smooth and easy to use, don't have to remount to change the battery out so you don't lose zero, positive button clicks for the wheel and brightness settingsIf you are going to buy the flip to side mount for the magnifier, buy the 1/3 cowitness PA mount. Learned the hard way, but PA made it all good! Best $300 investment you could make to get this setup

PA micro dot
by Karriem Washington
Best bang for the money out there!!!!!!This is my 3rd purchase from PA and i will say i am impressed again. Sight works flawlessly. Had a few friends shoot my rifle and they loved the micro dot and could not believe the price when i told em. Keep up the good works guys i WILL Always look to you guys first when purchasing any rifle sight.
Best micro red dot for the money. Period.
by D. Taylor
Best value on the market. It has been on since I got it a month ago and is still going strong. Red dot is crisp and clear, coating on front lens causes a very slight discoloration when looking through it.I will try to remember to update this in a year or so, and report back on battery life.The Tango Down I/O cover fits without modification and the buttons to adjust the brightness do not require a cut out.
Can't wait to put it to the test!
by Derek Akner
Bought this last week and was thrilled with 2/3 day shipping. The presentation of this is great, the box is very sturdy and has two sets of torx keys for mounting. Bought it with a Lower 1/3 cowitness mount which is very sturdy and easy to mount. For me, the $19 mount is just fine as I was uncomfortable shelling out a bit more for the QD mount. When I fired up the sight at my gun bench, I was disappointed that it was blurry (much like a bunch of grapes as I see that term frequently in reviews on the forums). The key to getting the dot working is to focus on your target, it sounds strange but as soon as you stop staring at the dot itself, it works perfectly. I am very excited to put this to the test!

Bought this sight for my Radical Arms Ar 15 and for the money, great product. Compares to the higher priced eotech red dots. Will definitely coming back for all my optic needs.
compact, light, inexpensive and clear

can't wait to take it to the 200yl.
Great red dot for mere mortals.
by George Sanchez
Clear glass, bright, sharp, dot. Aimpoint like battery life, great for defense, range, hunting. For 99.999% of us mere mortals that will never see combat, this MD-ADS fits the bill perfectly. As usual, great Primary Arms product at a reasonable price.
PA advanced micro dot
by CAIN LAMON
Construction seems solid, controls are secure. I really like the top push button brightness adjustments. The windage and elevation adjustment could be more crisp but I am pretty sure it will hold zero. I recommend they lose the star bolt that comes with it and send it with a torque or Allen head bolt. To sum it up I have not had the extended experience with this red dot but it is mounted on my Ultimak rail, on my AK so if will hold up to that abuse I'll buy more.
Works as advertised
by E. Clark
Controls are easy and intuitive to manipulate. I like it immensely. Mounted it as 100% co-witness. It remains at the same brightness as when you last shut it off. It is a hard choice between it and the Holosun, though.
Works as advertised
by D. L.
Daylight bright dot. Clear glass. Minimal anti-glare tint. Stated co-witness. Positive clicks on adjustment knobs. 500+ hours so far, brightness unaffected. Loved it so much I bought another one.
Bang 4 Buck
by Davis Roebuck
Definitely a good purchase I'm very pleased with the quality so far and I own several eotech and aimpoint optics. I would and will buy this again for future builds. Always thanks to PA my primary source for parts.
Delivery was fast. Product looks solid. Works well even in bright light. Nice piece!
Love It So Far
by Jeffrey Adcock
Easy to mount with the Primary Arms cowitness riser. Has held zero for the two range trips so far. Even in bright sun it was easy to see the dot. I would buy again, hopefully it will last
Next best thing, besides t-1 micro
by Robert Owen
Easy to sight in and completely simple to operate on the ak. Remembers the last setting you are on is awesome. Precise and accurate.
Best cheap RDS on the market
Everything I've come across, this can hold its own with a aimpoint micro. So if you want a decent alternative, this is the way to go.
Great Optic...well worth the money.
by Carlos O Barboza Jr
Excellent product (as expected). I ordered the MD-ADS for my AR and I will be ordering another one for my AK.
