    I have a Strikefire II RDS that I Have had for several years on my Colt M4, and it seems to work well and has been reliable....although it has not seen any rough treatment.

    I have considered something else. The Strikefire uses a C2 battery, and the system turns off after 8 hours. I can go from a red to a green dot, but the battery life is not near what the aimpoint is, and I would like something that uses a more common AA battery.

    I have also also kicked around the idea of a low powered scope, but donít know what route to go.

    Where I would like to go.....

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    Bad Bob I had an astigmatism for years and wear trifocals and used dot optics longer than I warn glasses . My middle lens is set for front sight distance or " computer " monitor but sights are still only OK . Red dots work great for me since '78 but have to use the long range part of my lens for a clear dot and field of view and typically turn down the dot intensity .

    If I wear my glasses the dot is clear. About 1/2 the time I don't wear my glasses because my vision is not that bad.

    When I was shooting or hunting I use to wear them even before I needed them so it never was a big deal . And your vision is not that bad !! Ha I remember when I thought that too . It don't get better that's for sure .

I've also got an astigmatism, so dots look more like a starburst or squiggly figure 8. Still "Ok" for the close stuff, but it makes precision at distance challenging.
