Anyone have one? Have handled one? Thoughts?

I think this is where I'm going for an optic on my SBR.

I've been looking at them myself. Nice small package, no batteries, solid construction.

An old friend of mine just bought a Tavor and said he wants to pick one up for authentic esthetics. He's going to give me the low down on it.

I was planning on getting one. I had made up my mind after looking at one and doing my research (which was hard to find) that this was the optic for me. I liked the idea of no batteries and all that. Then I read more reviews and the one and only complaint I could find that really seemed to mean anything was being in a dark area looking into a light area and the reticle was very difficult to pick up.

I've decided to go with an Aimpoint, most likely a Comp M4 when I can save up the cash to buy one. Run's on AA's continuously for like 8 years or something ridiculous like that. Plus AA's are common easy, cheap batteries to find, so although the optic is on the higher price side the features more than seem to make up for it. YMMV

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

Yeah that one complaint hasn't been enough to steer me away. I've seen pictures and vids of it, and I can still see it.

Cool... If you get one, give us a review! I still think it's a good option. I have yet to own what I would consider a military grade optic. I've had cheap red dots, but am old school and just use iron sights.

Well I ordered one so I'll definitely drop a review when I get it.

Finally received the M21 today. They sent the wrong reticle..., which is fine because I had actually changed my mind on the reticle I wanted, and was going to ask for an exchange. I guess it is serendipitous. They sent the 4.3 MOA dot..., and I like it a lot.

Unfortunately, with my work schedule, it's going to be awhile, I think, before I can get it to the range. But first impressions are positive. Very rugged, built like a tank. It's pretty large, as far as a RDS goes. I can make the dot washout, but if I focus, I can still see it. So I can see how some see this as a disadvantage, and I guess it is in the small percentage of times that it would happen..., but I plan on training to use it as a ghost ring if that happens. The advantage of no batteries or electronics to fail outweighs that minor risk of wash out, for me.
