Pursuit X1 Red Dot Scope
I went to Bass Pro Shop and purchased the 1x40 model to put on my Marlin .22. They mounted it and bore-sighted it for me. The dots were bright outdoors and indoors. I did not notice much difference in thebrightness of the dots when adjusted. After 6 rounds I was zeroed in and had quarter size shot groups at 75 yds. All in all I think it is a good product for the price.

Less Than Stellar
Placed in an AR-15 platform, the reflective mirror inside the PURSUIT X1 Red Dot Scope came loose rendering the scope inoperable after intermittent firing of 400 rounds of .223. The scope was good prior to the reflective mirror breaking loose; after that the scope was a good paperweight.

Poor Choice - save your money
This scope is a poor choice of optics for any serious type of shooting or hunting. The 3moa dot itself is (all colors) unclear in many lighting conditions, frequently looking more like a star than a dot. The worst is in low light where it's hard to see the dot clearly through the unfocused fuzz. Think out of focus camera aimed at a street light. I could have probably lived with that since the diameter of the fuzzy section is maybe 6-8moa, but then there was the issue with sighting. At 25 yards with a fixed sight, the position of your eye left/right up/down can create up to a 6" difference between when your eye is positioned so the dot is perfectly centered in the reticle and when it's off to the right. The left, down and up positions produced only about a 1-2 inch discrepancy until the extreme position where the dot was nearing the edge of view when it got worse. To the right, the discrepancy started almost immediately as I moved my eye position to the right, such that a small shift of the dot from dead center would pull the dot off the target quickly. Given varied angles that may be needed in certain situations, I feel this issue could create a situation that leads to a poor shot or inhumane kill if used for hunting with a gun or crossbow and would recommend not to purchase/use this scope if this is important to you.

Agree with the other reviews. This is a complete waste of money. The dot is so dim you can't even see it at the range. Used brand new batteries and no improvement. You can hardly see the dot inside. If there is any glare outside you can't see it at all.
