Primary Arms Micro Dot With Removable Base
Tried it in my open competition gun (with sheumman ported tri-brid barrel). scope was great but it fell off after a few rounds. I guess the four tiny screws wouldn't hold that much. I would suggest that they review their design and probably come up with a bigger screws or better mounting design. over all though I like it as it is lower and very light
Haven't gotten it to the range yet, but everything on it is excellent so far. Finish is great, dot is crisp, optic is simple to use, and all gadgets and gizmos work as they should. All except for the removable base. I've been going at it in order to create a perfect co-witness with my riser for awhile now, but even after removing the four retaining screws it's as if it was JB welded or super glued on there. Absolutely will not budge. I would definitely still buy again in the future though, except this time without the "removable base".
Very nice for the price it has 11 different brightness settings and holds zero even after getting knocked around pretty good
The only thing is cheap about this red dot is the price (see my earlier review). Long story short: I didn't even have to adjust mine and at 50 yards, with no rest other than my own two elbows, I got three-shot groups that fit under a penny - all day long.
I bought this for my Wife's Ruger 10/22 carbine. She was hitting all over a target, consistantly, never mind the range. I bought this Red Dot for her for Valentines Day. I took the liberty of bore sighting it, then to the range ( 25 yd limit). I had to make a couple of adjustments, but once that was done, this rifle ran great and very, very accurate. It seems as clear and nice as the Match Dot Ultra Dot IV on my .22 target pistol, and as the Aimpoint on my AR. Really good Sight, based on one long outing with it. Thanks, Mark
Let me start by saying I love primary arms red dots. I have one on all the AR's I have. As for this new one, it's a bust, at least for me. Went to the range today to shoot a match and I found that I have to turn the setting all the way up to 11 to be able to use it when it's bright outside. I could not even see the dot on settings 6 and below. I have the older MD-O6L model, and that thing rocks. Setting 11 on the new sight is about the same brightness as setting 6 on the MD-O6L.
I have atleast 4 of these on different firearms, the ar15 with an american defense quick release absolute mount, mac11 pistol in 9mm, ruger 10/22 with a tactical soultions rail, ruger mark 3 target 5.5 pistol, and uzi carbine. I own several high end optics also, the eotech 512, xps2, aimpoint comp 3, fastfire 2, trijicon acog, vortex strike fire 1 and 2, and this sight is almost even to those. I have never had a loss of zero, its click adjustments make zero easy, and its 2moa dot allow precise accuracy, out to 200 yards for me on 10" steel. I recommended it to a friend who mounted it on a highpoint carbine. He loves it, 100 yards on 10" steel is no problem. It may not be military grade, or night vision compatible, but for personal defense or accurate target shooting it is more than capable. I plan to buy another if needed, and highly recommend.
First of all, Primary Arms has great customer service and the shipping department is the fastest in the industry. I know this to be factual having ordered from dozens of other online sources. I received my order in less than 4 days to South Florida less than a week before Christmas! The 2 MOA dot in this sight is awesome! It is far better than the 4 MOA dot that is in my Vortex Spitfire red dot. It's a clean dot with no "Comet tail" effect. Plenty of brightness even on the sunny afternoons in South Florida. This red dot is super light and very tiny but does the job as good as much larger red dots. I purchased the Radical Firearms 1/3 co-witness mount to put the scope on. It also does a great job of lining up my Diamondhead polymer back-up sights. The Radical Firearms mount is good quality as well but I'm glad I only paid $20 for it (thanks to Primary Arms offering a package deal on mounts when you buy the red dot) it's not worth the list price of $60. The bolt that holds it on your rail is threaded the entire length. Which could scratch your rail. A better mount would have a smooth bolt or even a square shaft to insure it locks tightly to your rail. It's not bad, but certainly not worth the retail price of $60. Over all I'm very pleased with this combination and would recommend it to others.
Could not get passed the glob of glue looking thing in corner which was the transmitter. It was over wheming in the view. Red dot was crisp and clear but promptly returned it. Didnt get credit for shipping either way and lost around $20. I was told that is how it is and took my lumps returning it.
These things are simply awesome. Crystal clear, reliable and hold zero. This is easy a 200.00 optics for less than 100.00 I have had mine for over a year now. It rides in my patrol car trunk and stays there 365 days a year. No matter how cold or hot when I pull it out and turn it on it comes on. More than I can say for my Eotech. I notice some reviews complain about gunk in the bottom seven o'clock position. That only shows user ignorance of not knowing how to properly use a red dot. Keep up the good work Primary Arms! I will be buying one of your 4-14 rifle scopes soon
I mounted this optic on a Midwest Industries rail hand guard on an Arsenal AK-74. There is such a massive glob of material at the bottom of the optic that the iron sights cannot be used. It obscures about 1/5 of the retical and extends from the 3 o'clock position down to the 7 o'clock position making the optic almost useless. The rail is excellent quality but the optic not so much.
My first adventure with a red dot. Easy to sight in. Only problem was a stripped screw when changing bases. I didn't think I got that carried away but whatever.
3.5* The dot seems to be pretty good for the price. The dot itself is nice and crisp, feels pretty sturdy without being to heavy. Havent been able to take it to the range yet but i suspect it will be fine. One thing that really bothers me was that the red dot arrived turned on., Im sure they do this to test to make sure it works but by leaving it on the battery was completely dead when it arrived. So i had to make an extra trip to go and buy a battery. Pretty annoying. PA - Sorry about the battery. That is a hassle and something we hate to see. We are sending a couple backup batteries in the mail
Primary arms micro dot is great for range shooting. I wouldn't trust my life with it though. Customer service is great however, after receiving the sight it was not functioning properly. Contacted primary arms and recieved a new one in two days! So customer service is great, sight is just avg. save your money and buy an eotech or aimpoint.
Haven't had a chance to really stress this piece out but easy use and very bright in all kinds of lighting environments. Well made and seems to be of good quality for the price point.
One of the threads was stripped when I got it, both factory and base screws had easy play, got 3 more screws holding though, so gotta check how it zeros
I am happy with the optic but there is no way this is .5 moa per click. I'm guessing 1 moa or more at 100 yards. I go one click and I'm 1 moa left of center, adjust and 1 moa to the right of center. I cannot get center at 100 yards.
I haven't been to the range yet, but the sight appears to be good. The red dot is sharp and clear and the design will help train me to keep both eyes open. One issue I had was mounting the rise to the sight. There were no instructions, but I finally figured it out. I didn't realize it at the time I made my order that the diameter of the tube was so small, when using my pop-up iron sights, all one can see in the MicroDot viewer is the iron sight, front and rear, so this will not work to co-immage. The microdot would be fine if one never used the back-up sights.
Emailed PA to ask what micro sight to buy And was recommend their in house brand over the Bushnell, and even over their more expensive one. Seems nicely made and co-whiteness is perfect on the HK 94 clone with a B&T low mount. Excited to try it out, seems a nice deal for the money. Crazy fast shipping! Always very pleased with PA.
Been using these for almost a year now. Definitely not a T1/T2, but for the price they're hard to beat!
I'm quickly becoming that guy. Great stuff at a low price. I show up and have all the same cool stuff as the guy who spent a fortune but I only have hundreds instead of thousands in my equipment. The red dot scope is every bit as good as the more expensive stuff at an affordable price. My buddies are jealous.
Excellent 2 moa red dot for the money. If your needs are for combat, pay the extra money for an Aimpoint. If you want a great quality substitute at a reasonable price then Primary Arms is the way to go. What sets Primary Arms apart is customer service. Anytime I have ever had an issue, it's been addressed and corrected immediately. In fact, I would say Primary Arms encourages feedback to better their products. I find it refreshing to see.
This is a major upgrade from previous generations. The glass is very clear. The dot is crisp. The brightness control dial turns easily with positive clicks at each setting. It is about the same size as the T1 Micro, although the top of the optic is a little more rounded. The rear optic housing is just a little larger than the MD-06. The emitter is low profile and does not get in the way. In my opinion, this optic is well worth the money. The pictures on the website do not do this optic justice.
Order was filled within a couple hours of ordering and received within a day and a half. Best turn-around of any other company I have ordered from. Primary Arms has now became my Primary company to order from.
This is the third PA red dot sight I've bought and they have all been superb. Nice crisp dot, easy to sight in, mounting is very secure. I've got on on each of my HK clones, and an S&W MP15-22. I only wish they had flip up covers instead of the bikini-type (but then even my Aimpoint T-1 doesn't have them)
Although I have not shot with this sight yet I am extremely pleased. It is built like a tank. It attaches to the Primary Arms sight base perfectly. The 2 MOA dot is clear and tiny! The controls are easy to use. It is nice and small. It comes with lens covers.... As long it is stays put when I fire it, I dare say that this sight is everything I need!
This is probably one of the best red dots you can buy for this little amount of money. The glass is clear, the dot is crisp and the control dial (and overall unit) has a solid feel to it. This is perfect for the hobbyist who doesn't want to spend the high price of admission for an aim point or eotech. Very happy with my purchase. Works great on my M&P 15 sport.
I was very satisfied with the performance of the PRimary Arms Micro Dot. Adjustments were consistent and I was able to get it zeroed in just as I wanted. Shipping was first rate and with their close proximity I had my package in less than two days. I plan to use them a lot more in the future.
The fit and finish on this microdot is awesome!! The dot is very crisp and clear!! Couldn't ask for a better product at this price!!!!!
Great battery life. Almost too bright on highest setting.
I bought the Primary Arms micro dot. It is bigger than the Bushnell TRS; but the recticle seems to be sharper. The PA sight seems well built and sturdy. I'd recommend it.
You can't beat this optic for the price. Period! Solid as can be, great clarity, awesome battery life, what's not to love?? Buy one!
Love this optic. Dot is really nice and crisp like mentioned in its description l. The over all feel of it does feel and look like a more expensive optic like the Aimpoint. It does have a slight blue/green tint thats a little dark in low light but you hardly notice when aiming with both eyes open. Held zero find even after 500+ rounds at the range. I purchased the primary arms lower 1/3 mount with no quick detatch and ƒÂt does the job and is very solid but I would upgrade to a quick detatch if able to. Over all a fantastic opric for the price and like stated in comments before. .the pics fo not fo it any justice
This will be my 5th PA microdot purchase. Newer generation but nothing new to report. Quality far exceeds price...rugged...good battery life. ..bright dot with minimal blurring. Mounted on an AK variant and it works great.
Love this thing, held zero well on my AR and the customer service is amazing!
Excellent red dot. Sharp dot, built well, great brightness adjustment, works awesome with my long eye relief magnifier. I shoot around 100yards and it works great. Primary arms, as always, were awesome. Best customer service in the industry.
I love this little optic. It was super easy to mount and even easier to zero in. Also sets up perfect with my 3x magnifier. All in all just a great product at a great price. I'd recommend this optic to anyone looking for a nice small optic and will be buying another for my next build.
I have yet to use this optic however from the box the construction feels solid. For basic target shooting this is perfect. I highly doubt I'll need a $700 aimpoint for target shootinf. This is a great alternative and the best part most all T1 mounts work. NOTE YOU WILL NEED A RISER.
The sight itself will go against any 3-600 dollar dot out there. Great product. The mount however, isnt going up against anything. I expoxy'ed my sight to the base to keep the two together. It holds zero and is accurate even like this.
Best of both worlds. You get a rock solid sight but don't have to break the bank. Will definitely buy another for future firearms
The primary arms micro dot is an affordable investment. When you have so many firearms, it's would be a load of cash to stick an Aimpoint T1 or H1 o them all. That's where the micro dot fills the gap, similar is function and size. It holds zero on my 7.62 AK. The primary arms micro dot I have found to be the most dependable and highest quality optic in its price range.
The quality of this red dot for the price is rediclious. Solid as a rock, clear glass, crisp dot in and out of the sunlight. Getting another one asap!!
Very happy with this scope, which is worth the price. However, I think I'm going to buy the Advanced one next, with the QD. Just can't get it out of my mind :)
A few new changes on the new version still quality gear and looks great.
This red dot is comparable to higher end products, the dot is fairly crisp, glass is clear with less tint than the old MD06.
This was an excellent addition to my Scorpion, Shipping was crazy quick!!!...
Excellent sight for someone on a budget. Will mount on Mid-West Industries AK-47 low mount hand-guard. Hope to be able to co-witness the micro-dot with the iron sights.
I have not yet used my new red-dot, so all I can say is that it appears to be well made.
Good price, excellent product...if I hade another PAP M92pv I would definitely purchase another Primary Arms Micro Dot.
Not bad for a $90 made in China red dot. Dialed it in, in five minutes. This will do until I can afford an EOTECH.
Purchased the red dot. Had some trouble with the red dot. No problem. PA sent me a new one lightning fast. There is an old saying that calm seas don't make a good Captain. Well after purchasing products from PA it is invaluable to know that if you have a problem it will be fixed. PA is a good Captain. And I have gone on to purchase a couple more of these red dots due to PA customer service and the quality of the product itself. Not to mention magnifier(s), mounts, etc. And their technical support has been super fast in helping with questions. I am now a dedicated PA customer. Outstanding job PA.
Nice sight. This was the final piece in transforming a youth model Ruger 10/22 into something I'd enjoy shooting. Wanted low mounted sight with small dot. Got it. Pretty much on target right out of the box. I'd buy it again. Can't say how it would hold up to greater recoil but there's an old .223 Rem rifle in the safe that would make a good test.
Fast shipping, great communication and customer service. The micro dot is fantastic. Can't wait to put some on my other toys
Much better glass and dot then a TRS25 also clear glass without a weird color. Not as bright as an AimPoint but it worked in very bright conditions turned up all the way. Best T1 clone under 100$ by far and uses same mounts as AimPoint!!!
Great sight !! Even though this baby didn't cost an arm and a leg, it's great !! Using it on my 22/45. I also have a green dot laser, as well as a silencer. It took 2 mins to dial in at 25 yards. 2" steel targets !! Oh yea I'm in Pa and it only took 3 days to get here !! Thumbs up for theses guys !!
This is an excellent optic, regardless of the price. I have an Aimpoint PRO and find that the glass and dot on the MD-RBGII are as clear and crisp, if not with less blue tint. The controls have a great tactile feel and the housing feels solid. Overall, I could not be more pleased and will be purchasing more PA optics! No problems so far and all indications are this is a durable and very usable package when coupled with a quality mount. If there is one piece of constructive criticism I could pass along to PA: please update the logo. You are becoming a legit name in the industry and the current logo just doesn't convey the quality and level of service that your customers have come to know. I would have rather had this optic with the cheesy font left off.
This is my 3rd red dot from PA and still don't have any regrets. This new gen is great, holds zero perfectly, fit the American Defence base perfectly, smaller emitter helps that much more. My only tiny "gripe" is that this new 2moa dot isn't as bright in the higher settings as my 2 older 3 moa ones. You can still see it well enough on a summer day, just wish it had 1 more brightness. Still love it and will buy more for sure.
THE PA Micro dot with the MD-RBGII is the perfect red dot and riser combo for the CZ scorpion Evo A3. The micro dot is reliable and incredibly intuitive to shoot. The riser lets you use the stock CZ iron sights through the hollow base. Perfect combo.
I just purchased my first red dot and it arrived very quickly as promised. I had some questions about mounting and sighting in, so called twice and was helped by knowledgeable, patient and thorough sales staff. Really appreciated doing business with you, Primary Arms will be my go to for AR supplies. Thanks!
Not much more to say, it works perfect and is well built.
When I first got it in mail, the mounting screws were in waay too solid (that's a good thing), sadly I stripped out some screws and couldn't mount it to riser. Primary arms must have 2 day shipped me a new one. I got it fast and in good condition. If you are a civilian, why do you need an aimpoint that costs half or a third of your rifle? I cant justify that. Primary arms is my first stop for optics. Keep em coming PA.
I have an older pa rds and they just keep getting better the glass is clear the dot has great brightness range and they are tough. Can't get a better rds in the price range.
I have installed this red dot on my AK 47, then on my Ar-15. With a little tweeking, the sight worked fantastic. Just might buy another soon. Thanks folks!
This was my first product from Primary Arms. First off, the shipping was fast. When I first open the box, I thought the product was just OK. Then the real test at the range. I was very impress with the quality of the Micro dot. The dot was very sharp and bright. The day was cloudy. I zero it in and shot 250 rds from my 9mm AR. The sights were dead on for all rds. Recommend the product for its price point.
Great light, third one I've bought. Super fast shipping, great packing job!
This sight is EXACTLY what I was looking for. A solid reliable red dot for recreational shooting. Priced right and shipped fast
Super fast shipping. Product was above and beyond. Price and quality #1. Will buy from again
After seeing the product in a local showroom, the price at primayarms was too good to pass up. Placed the order, got an estimate for the arrival and it was like clockwork. No delays, no excuses.... Great to deal with professionals.
This sight and the QD base is a very nice setup for a flat top AR that I like to switch between red dot and scope. Doesn't break the bank.
So far so good. Looks to have great construction. Check out the torture tests on Youtube. The only down side i can see is the lens caps are not permanently attached, but it does come with covers that will not fall off.
MOUNTED ON AR 9MM AR PISTOL ,FIRED COUPLE HUNDRED ROUNDS .SIGHT WORKS GREAT . WOULD BUY AGAIN .I ALSO OWN AIMPOINT AND 3 TRS25 ON OTHER AR RIFLES.PRIMARY ARMS GREAT COMPANY ,FAST SHIPPER.
Product is phenomenal and the price reasonable. Other than the USPS screwing up the shipping which PA has no control over everything was good. Customer service dealing with the mail situation was superior.
Love the RBG11, Great red dot. Had to return first RD because of stripped base screw. A call to Primary was answered by very helpful person and problem solved, and I received new RD. I would have lacked to had and email regarding shipping. Would buy from them again. They have Excellent products and service.
Love it. Took some time to dial it in, but it's perfect now!
Great product, light weight, clear glass, I like how the front lense is tilted to reduce glare . was able to fire 200rds, held zero, dot is very small and clear. Only wish the dial went completely around , you turn it one way to cycle through brightness and then opposite way to turn off. Not a big deal but it's different from the primary arms aa red dot
For the money, you can't beat these.
Works just right on my PS 90
Great red dot for price point...quality...style...functionality...works great on my 15-22...
this is the second time in a month that I have ordered from primary arms and I am again very pleased with there products and fast service! this red dot is very solid and has a great dot that is easy to see in any lighting situations. thanks again primary arms..
LOVE the red dot sight. It was delivered almost instantly and everything about it was exactly as advertised.
I'd been waiting for these to come back in stock. Got an email at 12:15 pm on 10-29-14 from PA stating they were back...placed my order at 1:03 pm...got my product shipped notification at 2:01 pm...delivered to my door 1,150 miles away using standard shipping at noon on 10-31-14!!! Like I said, excellent customer service. Initial impression of this micro dot: solid construction; clear glass... very little tint; small size emitter at the 4:30 position. Can't wait to get to the range for some T&E fun. Oh, this micro dot rocks atop of the bundled Bobro lower 1/3 qd mount.
so far very happy with this sight. its clear, bright, and seems very well made. No problem sighting it in. Will be ordering more of these! Shipped out fast as always.
A great optic for a double digit price, and quick shipping got it to me about a week after placing the order.
After initially messing up a part of my order I was sent a replacement without even needing to send back the other
So far this has been a great sight! This is my second one from Primary Arms. Clear view with quick target acquisition. Mounted on my AR15 with Primary Arms riser, make sure you get the riser to sight screws tight. Will appear tight but wiggle once mounted on rifle, had to remove and retighten, but be careful looks like could strip with too much force. They do supply thread lock which is good.
Ordered my scope with no problems and recieved it very quickly. Scope was as advertised and I am pleased with the quality.
This is a super clear low pro MRDS the dot is tiny and crisp. Only thing lacking is the battery life compared to the 50K advanced PA red dot version. I have both great sights.
Great product at a fair price and super fast delivery. Thank you Primary Arms.
I've had EOTechs, Aimpoints, ACOGs, SRSs, RMRs, and this is by far the best little optic as far as bang for your buck is concerned. While it doesn't have the same quality as the aforementioned brands, it more than does the job and has quickly become a mainstay on my weapons.
Used on my IO Inc AKM247 (AK47 clone). When used with the Midwest handguard, it co-witnesses the iron sights PERFECTLY! EXCELLENT value!
Great product. Great customer service. Would/Will buy again. A+
If you are like me I tend to research equipment until it's mind-numbing! I found PA by way of a forum and was impressed by the equipment, prices, reviews & customer service. I exchanged emails back & forth with Samuel about what red dot & mount would be best for me and he was right. This Red Dot is very nice, built well, has a crisp dot and simple controls. Looks and works great on my Colt M4. Shipping is lightning fast. Thumbs up PA. Edit* Just put another 100rds through my Colt M4 using this red dot. I only need a 4 setting on the indoor range and it functioned flawlessly. It is one heck of a red dot and a great bargain to boot!
Put it on my son's AR 22LR upper. Used the AR riser mount. Makes it more enjoyable for him to shoot especially with my suppressor on the muzzle. Lets him concentrate on his triiger control.
Hard to beat for the money!
great product!! already on my ar-15 and sighted in. Couldn't be happier plus it arrived in a very timely fashion. thanks bob d
I installed this on my CNC warrior m92 w/midwest industries forward rail and I was able to co witness with iron sights. I havent given it a torture test as of yet but so far 200rds down range and still holding.
Will buy more of this type product
Seems like it's made well, time will tell how it holds up.
Awesome. First opened the box at night and was worried because the dot was fuzzy, like blown out and starbursting even at setting number 3, but the next day at the range in bright daylight the dot was crisp and clear, I was very satisfied. Still seems fuzzy at night, but completely functional. Mounted on an NPAP with RS regulate AK-307 and RS microdot base, co witnesses and looks ridiculously awesome. Makes follow up shots very fast. Very light
Fast ship, good price , thank you
The scope seems built tough, compact, and seem at home on my carbine. can't wait to try it out when I go shooting. Dot is bright, and clear.
Great optic! I am using it on a Colt carbine .22LR. I am a former Navy SEAL and am used to using aimpoints and eotechs on carbines and this sight is a very suitable option for a durable well made optic that is far more affordable.
Good quality for a great price as usual.
Put this on a Mak-90 with an ultimak. Looks great, functions as advertised. Haven't been to range to see how it holds up. Biggest perk is being able to cowittness.
This is my 3rd PA micro dot optic. It performs just as great as the other 2, only with a slightly sharper 2moa dot and better battery life. I had one of these micro dots "until I got a high end sight", then got and sold the tier 1 sight while keeping my PA micros. For my use there is simply no better value, and no reason to dump 4x the cash into a non magnified optic.
This is the 2nd PA red dot I've purchased. I put one on my AK (which held a zero with NO issues at all!) and liked it so much, I bought another for my AR. For the price you really can't beat it. Bought the absolute co-witness riser and for less than $125 shipped, I have a good clear red dot that'll be more than I'll ever need at 1/4 of the cost of some of the others. Shipping was super fast - ordered on Friday afternoon and had it on my rifle on Monday evening. I'll be back for more, just need another rifle!
So far I am very happy with this red dot for the price. No complaints as of now. I bought this rds for my ar-15 but installed it first on my ruger 22/45 becuase i was curious how i would like shooting a handgun with red dot. Long story short i loved it and will probably be ordering another for the 22/45 but since this gun was bought to practice with open site i moved it over to the ar15 but have yet to get to the range to test it. I foresee no problems. I had a full size primary arms red dot before this one and was very happy.
I recently bought and mounted a sight/scope rail (UltiMAK) for my M1 Carbine (AO), then shopped for a mid-market red-dot sight. After a lot of reading reviews (of products and their vendors), watching videos, and comparing features, I settled on the PA MD-RBGii. Received it 5 days after ordering. Prepped the base & clamp screws with the provided thread locker and mounted the sight w/o any difficulty (sight approximately centered on the rail). Took the carbine to an indoor range a few days later expecting to have to spend at least an hour and a couple of boxes of ammo to zero the sight. At 50 yards, firing while hand-holding the weapon with elbows resting on the stand (no bags), 4 of the first 10 rounds were in the black, with the remainder in the white off to the left, but all dead-on in elevation. After small adjustments for windage and 20 more rounds, all rounds were within ~ 3Â centered on the X. I was very pleased.
Called customer service for info. before ordering. Representative was knowledgeable, and very helpful. Micro Dot and riser arrived quickly. Products appear to be high quality and were well packaged. I have not used the sight yet but so far I am very pleased.
Nice unit. first one had a spec on the inside of the front lense. PA rushed me a replacement. Would like to see attachment cords for the caps and enough room for flip-up caps.
I love this sight. saved me a fortune compared to h1/t1. I have 9k rounds thru my 300 blackout and its been 90 outside with 100 percent humidity and its recently been 22 outside and going from inside to freezing cold and back in house , no fogging or moisture inside and ive banged it a few times and it is still on zero. not a t1, but the best alternative I've ever tried
Well made and durable; this Red Dot has worked perfectly.
The PA Micro Dot is a surprisingly good item considering the price. I could find no reason to spend $$ more on a similar item. It works great and should provide years of reliable service.
Very happy with this purchase and the quality of the micro dot sight I ordered for the money. Will most defiantly order future products again. The shipping speed is second to none!
Took a roll of the dice and decided to try out the PA MD-RBGII Micro Dot. And rolled an 11 on the first roll!! Quite impressed with the build quality. Extremely clear and the red dot is visible on a bright sunny day at the 7 setting! And of course, PA service is excellent!!!
I bought this red dot based on reviews and Primary Arms' reputation. I haven't gone to the range with it yet but from taking it out of the box and setting it up it works great. I had almost no adjustments to zero it to my buis and the red dot is nice and sharp.
Great service and feedback. Will definitely repeat my business here.
I just got a Aimpoint H1 and the Primary Arms is very similar. Same size, mounting base, etc. Does not appear to have NVG settings, or limited settings....but then I don't have/use NVG's. Great red dot for the money!
This is my 3rd Primary red dot. Great product. Fast delivery. I also have a $600 AimPoint, and honestly I can't tell the difference other than the battery life of the AimPoint is advertised as being longer. Great product. Best service in the industry.
Works like a charm, This is my second optic purchase and I will be buying more primary arms products in the future.
I am impressed with the quality for the price. I wanted to try a micro dot on my AR 15 after trying an eotech. Nothing wrong with the eotech, just a little heavier then I wanted for my lightweight AR. A micro dot seemed like a good choice to replace it. I wanted something cheap in case I didn't like it, but of decent quality in case I did. After reading a few reviews from different sites, I picked this one and so far I am happy with my choice.
Bought this sight with a weaver tactical 1/3 co witness from Amazon. Brought it to the range and mounted it atop my first AR build. Shot around 150 rounds benched. Worked great. Brought it home and the brightness dial had stopped working, emailed PA and within the day had already gotten the return address and package number. They shipped a replacement the day they received the defective model. They shipped it Thursday and by sat morning usps had it to my door, hows that for customer service!
This red dot works great and why waste money on a more expensive one? If you look at the purpose of a red dot and you keep both eyes open why worry about clarity and other items that apply to scopes.
Dot is a little blurry and oblong but holds zero well. Over all I am happy and would buy again. Service was great as always!
Great product. It's an excellent alternative to the more expensive MD-ADS.
Scope dot is clear and crisp. Easy adjustment. Holds zero so far. Not sure if it can take the beating of an aimpoint, I try not to abuse any of my gear. But it works great. I prefer it to the TRS25 due to the very clean 2moa dot.
Your guys on the phone customer service were vary genuine and helpful. Whatever question I had they awnsered quickly and without hesitation. One of the best experiance I've had ordering product.
Excellent little piece of equipment. I've seen several videos of people torture testing these and they hold up incredibly well for a cheap (priced) red dot. I'm positive they're not as solid as an aimpoint T1 micro but they're also nowhere near $600+ either. The brightness is very adjustable for any light condition you will ever encounter.
Bought two of these for a pair of Rifles I recently got and they are great optics. Ive had one for 2 years on an AK that is rock solid also
I ordered this with the intention on using it for an AR15. I decided to go with PA 2.5X compact scope. It is not a bad product by no means. I will order one in the future but it will be the push button version.
Perfect mount for my rifle set up
I put this red dot on my 9mm pistol build. It performed as expected. As the name of the product states it is a "Micro" version and does not take up much room on the rail. I am not running a BUIS on this build, so I cannot comment on co-witness. The provided mount looks good and seems solid. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a small red dot, given the quality and that a 1/3 co-witness mount is provided this is an excellent value for those looking for a quality red dot for their setup.
I ordered the PA MD-RBGII with an absolute co-witness mount for a 10.5" AR I recently acquired. This is my first PA red dot and I must say I'm very happy with it. I wanted something small and light for this range toy and was not concerned with "foreverÂ battery life since it will remain Å“offÂ most of the time. The 2 MOA dot is clear and crisp, better than the TRS-25 (3 MOA dot) and very close to those on my Aimpoints. Mounting the unit was fast and easy and performance on the range was excellent. As with all my previous orders, PAs shipping and communication was first rate all the way.
A friend told me of your company so I thought I would give it a try. It has been a great experience and will definitely do business here again.
love these red dots. I use them on my .22 rifles, just the other day I dropped my rifle from about 3 1/2 feet right on the red dot. my first thought was huh ooh. I loaded it and shot at a target and it was right on.
I ran a Primary Arms red dot for a couple years competing in multigun matches and thought I needed to upgrade to another brand because everyone knows you can't compete with a sub $100 optic (liars!). Well I have tried 2 other high priced brands and both have been sent back! I'm sticking with Primary Arms. This dot has great daylight visibility and the mount is rock solid!
I own an Aimpoint pro but wanted a new optic for my newly built AR. This is a phenomenal optic for the price. I paired it with an American Defense quick detach mount and I'm super happy with it. Zeroed quickly after install and holds zero perfectly. If you're looking for a quality red dot without breaking the bank, this is the optic for you.
Good glass clarity as always. The dot gets incredibly fuzzy though at anything but the lowest tolerable setting. Dot all but disappears in bright sunlight unless on highest setting, and the blue tint to the glass throws off 2 eye operation. Overall I'm very happy though, especially for the price an build quality. Great weight, size/form, price point, etc. Very happy once again.
I own many AR style rifles and other rugged use gear. Red dot sights have been my main go-to when it comes to any style optic out there. I started playing with them back in the early days of woods play paintball ,and was using PAs early products then,and they went through as much simulated rough use as I could tolerate,and never failed.They have done nothing but get better as the years have passed.i own one of the top name micro dots,on a Larue quick detach mount,I also own 3 of the latest PA micro's one of them being the push button model,2 of them with the Bobro quick mounts. Non of these are on paintball guns anymore and the bug out rifle is wearing the newest button model PA dot / Bobro mounted,and if that's all I got out with ,I wouldn't even worry about it. Anyone asking my opinion or seeing my gear at the range or a shoot,would be recommended to save your bucks but don't feel short changed going with one of the Primary Arms micro red dots....
Great Product! Shipped Fast!
Crisp and clear, holds zero. Great quality product too.
I purchased this Micro Dot/ Mount set to use on my 15-22. Initial install to the mount was a breeze. The QD American Defense absolute co-witness mount needed a slight adjustment for the lockup to hold tight, but once it was adjusted it was perfect. It took a few minutes to zero at 25 yards but once it was zeroed it was spot on for the 2 bricks (1050 rounds)that were shot out of it, even after removing a couple times to shoot with the backup sights. The glass has a slight Blue\Greenish tint when looking though but its not too bad at all. I forgot about it once i got to the range and started shooting. I have absolutely no doubts that this will hold up on well on my 15-22, I am even getting another for my M&P 15. Don't hesitate on purchasing this optic. It went out of stock a few times before i finally got to order mine but PA keeps getting new inventory of these every few weeks. Great Red Dot!!!
I just received my MD-RBGII in the mail and opened it up. This is my first PA optic and I have to say I am impressed. I have two Aimpoint T-1 optics to compare it to. I am impressed with the clarity and lack of coloration on the glass. There is a very slight green coloration to the glass, but nothing to complain about. The 2 MOA dot looks true to form. Looking through the optic using my Eotech 3x magnifier it appears there is a small tail going up from the dot, looking with the naked eye it is not noticeable notice. I do have a slight astigmatism, so this may just be my issue, but I don't get the same issue with a Aimpoint T-1 and the magnifier. I am going to be using this optic on a Kel Tec PLR-16 and Saiga 12 for testing, but eventually I plan on mounting it on a AAC 300 Blackout H&R Handi Rifle long term. Judging my by initial impression I would not hesitate to order another one of these or recommend them to friends. Now I understand all the PA hype.
PROS:Dot, optics, finish and install more than merely good. Simple to zero, cowitness is a plus, view is crisp. 180 rounds first time out.No problems(used loktite as recommended). CONS: Minimal.Wish it could fit a magnifier on the TWS dogleg/C39 setup because beyond 55-60 yards precision drops a bit for my eyes. ALSO have read others saying bikini cover doesn't fit-just cut it out from about the 7 to 5 position so the caps angle/sit a little over the rail edges.ALSO the install with TWS DOG LEG on C39 required flat head screws, not the round head ones shipped with the unit.NO PROBLEM.Primary Arms was on it with one call and shipped the needed items ASAP no charge priority USPS.Continuing fine service from Primary Arms staff.
Back ordered..... already! I got mine and it is great especially for the money. Glad to see people getting on the band wagon with this excellent company, great service, great product and stand behind their product 100%. Dealing with these guy's is like the old day's when you could trust a man's word.
Great sight at a great price. As always Primary Arms was great. Very kind and polite. Even very nice and patient with tactifool who was just there to talk and not buy.
I wanted a red dot less than 3 MOA to get a little more accurate, but didn't want to pay $500. The primary arms MD-RBGll was exactly what I was looking for and it is a smaller dot than the Bushnell TR-25 at a similar price point. Primary Arms doesn't disappoint. Get one, you'll love it.
zeroed today in record time, seems like a quality piece. Small sharp dot with solid "click" to the MOA adjustment. I am glad, tho, that I ordered both the lower 1/3 and absolute co-witness riser mounts because my only "complaint" was that with the 1/3 riser, the emitter was visible while sighting down the iron sights, making for a very cluttered sight picture for my preference. Just something to be aware of. after swapping to the absolute co-witness mount, i couldn't be happier. Well worth the investment, and much more precise than the iron sights. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Love it. Great quality. Can't wait to buy a couple more.
