While this scope can be used as an RDS at 1 power, I found, for myself that the dot had a bit of a "tail" however with a variety of illumination settings, I was able to "turn down" the power and the dot was fine. The diopter setting on the scope made getting the reticle sharp very easy as well. I was able to put several rds in a 1" dot at 100yrd. If the reticle was a bit "finer" it would have been even easier. Zeroing was simple I needed some adjustment on the windage, however the elevation was dead on. Once the turrets are set and "capped" you use the reticle as a BDC, very simple and, so far so good.

    On another note, a good friend managed to talk me out of getting some Butler Creek (BC) scope caps, while BC is good "bang for the buck" I'm glad he did.This is my first experience using them, and I was very impressed with the Tenebraex product. Easy to install and well made. The folks at Armament Technology (AT) were great to deal with. Patrick was awesome, and customer service along with shipping was fast. The caps were the perfect size, and fit great. Thanks troops!



    Looks good, great photography work!

    Another legit option for scope caps are Aadmount Flip ups.

    They are all I use on my NightForce NSX, NX8, and Vortex PST G2 1-6x. On my PST I only use the front cap.

    Yeah they are not for budget minded types - but for $1500+ optics, I won't cheap out with cheap caps.

    These never fall off, never flip up on their own.

    I ended up getting rid of my PST 2 because of the weight. I really liked it otherwise, but I pretty much always shoot off hand and the weight was killer.

    T2. I struggled with self diagnosed "astigmatism" with an Aimpoint PRO a while back and figured I couldn't do red dots. Starbursting, grape dot, etc. The T2 is a different animal for whatever reason and I get a nice crisp dot. Much more accurate than irons. For my use the red dot makes more sense than a LPVO and I was only using it because I thought I couldn't use a red dot. I highly suggest anyone else struggling with it to try a T2.

    Did you have the same issue with EOTechs? Aimpoint definitely cleaned up the dot between the T1 and T2 for magnification, would make sense that itd help with some eyesight issues as well.
