G5 Outdoors Optix Universal Rheostat Light Kit
No more dark pins!
This sight light is the only light that fits the G5 line of sights so I was forced to spend 30 bucks for a tiny light that shouldn't even cost 20 bucks.
Cost aside, I am glad I won't have to worry about not seeing my pins. With the seven different intensity levels, there will not be a lighting situation this light can't handle. No more hazy or dim .019 pins, just pure, bright pins that will be lit when they are supposed to be.
One more cool thing is that when I get rid of my G5 sight, (can't wait to) by using the other adapters this sight light will be great on a wide spectrum of other sights out there.
Great product, just pricey.
Hope the batteries last long.
God bless and good hunting!

A must have for some sights
I used this on my G5 optix SE which was well needed for that sight (very bad low light pin brightness) This light was simple to install and easy to use, but I found the 7 levels is way overkill. I personally couldn't see a change in most levels. I feel 3 would be more than needed. Another problem I had was in the off position I could wiggle the knob and get it to turn on without going into the actual on position. I exchanged it for another and the second did the same thing. Over all a great addition if you feel your sight isn't bright enough, but for many you'll find yourself never turning it on.

Decent Replacement Light
I knocked my old light off and bought this replacement. I wished they had directions because I didn't understand how to change the bulb and batteries from one light to another light, but eventually figured it out. I didn't see much of a difference between some of the brightness levels, but I guess the true test will be when I use it again. I liked that it was easy to turn on--my previous light turned on where it screwed in and it got lost when I inadvertently screwed it the wrong way and it dropped 20 feet down into the leaves, never to be seen again. Oh well. This works much better.

everything about this light is the best i like that you can set the brightness i use it at the highest for mid day and such and the lowest for night to reduce glare. i also like that the batteries are just watch batteries.
