i bought one when i was cheapfag building my rifle. now nearly every single fucking part of the rifle has been swapped out for good stuff. so as a preamble, buy nice or buy twice, buy once cry once.

>however

it does have a 1 year battery life roughly, and regular recoil and tossing my rifle in the back of my truck hasnt fucked up the zero. the dot itself is more like a little smear than a really defined dot like on good optics. i cant attest to how it holds up with serious abuse. that being said, 99% of the shitposting posers on here who act like the happening will happen will shit on it. if youre using this for plinking and fucking around it will be fine. if you seriously think there will be an uprising and want equipment that can stand up to habbening tier abuse, get an aimpoint pro or aco.
>>
>>28660095
It's just for plinking. I bought a new ar and the buis is really small and hard for me to see through so I am looking for something that will just allow me to more easily target shoot. I just want something that will work and not be a piece of shit or fuck up.

I have a TRS-25 that I got for Christmas a couple of years back that I mounted on my PS90. Its really not that bad an optic for the price. The dot isn't super well defined, with some flare, but it has pretty good battery life and seems to be pretty robust. The gun will never see anything more rigorous that the occasional range trip so I'm keeping the Bushnell.
>>
I don't see anything justifying paying twice as much for the micro red dot than buying the trs-25. Am I missing something over than battery life?
>>
>>28660289

The battery life is most of it. The very long battery life is a huge plus though. It can simply be left on and is ready when you need it. Good for a home defense firearm. Not as important for a gun that will only ever see range use or maybe some hunting.
>>
>>28659963
I went with the TRS-25. Roughly 1/3 the cost of the micro dot. Fuck yeah I'll try to remember to turn it off/on to save $100. And if I forget, $100 buys a lot of batteries.
>>
>>28660342
Okay thanks. Well that pretty much settles it for me to get the bushnell. I live in an urban environment and I would never dream of using it in a home defense situation because of collateral damage, so it will be left off when not in use.
>>
>>28660399
plus i had back up sights so if it dies i will be okay. I was planning on doing 1/3 co-witness over absolute.
>>
Most cheap optics are cheap for a reason. The TRS-25 is fine red dot though. I put one on a Ruger Mark III and it has been awesome. Over a thousand rounds and the zero is still perfect.
>>
>>28659963
someone buy my trs-25, not advertising or anything.
>>
>>28660444
with the modern technology and modern batteries there really is no reason they need to be expensive. I know some high quality glass can cost a little but the rest of the components are almost worthless. They would be really easy to produce as well. I could see these things for for 40 bucks if they had enough sales.

Lol, I make 5 grand a month I can afford either option, but there are other things I want and ammo costs money. saving 80 bucks is 250 rounds that I could practice with. Obvs practice will make me better at shooting instead of a marginally better red dot. I am not trying to throw more money at it than I need to.
>>
>>28659963
Having both a trs 25 and a MD-AD (cheaper PA micro), the PA is better all around. Although the trs-25 has an advertised 3,000 hour battery it lasted a fraction of that. That said, the trs-25 is okay if you don't leave it on.

Sold lemme get this straight. You make 5k a month. You would rather forego a signficantly better optic, an investment that should easily stretch into multiple years of use...for the sake of what is essentially a single day at the range worth of ammo.
>>
>>28660378
I dunno dude I literally got 3 weeks of battery life on the trs-25 on setting 4. My PA dot lasted 4 months and it was their budget one. Same exact batteries used.
>>
>>28660378
> $100 buys a lot of batteries.
it also buys you a better optic....why are you idiots trying to cheap out as much as possible on one of the most important parts of your rifle? you may as well just stick with fucking irons if this is how tight you insist on being.
>>
>>28660949
>better optic lasts 50k hours
better buy $100 worth of batteries!!1 lmao
>>
>>28660918
>signficantly better optic
Other than the battery life that I am not interested in taking advantage of I don't see what is makes it a "signficantly better optic"
>>
Fuck OP.

Which is better, MRO, T-2, or T-1?
>>
>>28660973
So...that's what, 18-23 CR2032's? They're like $4-6 each if you buy locally.

Considering the difference in battery life of 5k vs. 50k hours is 10 batteries, the more expensive optic will eventually be cheaper in the long run. However 50k hours is a LOT of years. 5.7 years to be exact, if left on 24/7.

If you plan on keeping the same optic for 6 years, the PA is better. If you swap shit out constantly, probably not.
>>
>>28659963
I got mine when WalMart was getting rid of everything scary and black. For the $60 I paid for it, I'd say it was a bargain.
>>
>>28661000
i think you mis interpreted my post. i own a pa micro dot
>>
>>28660976
>Other than the battery life
Because that's not a big part of a powered optic or anything.
> I don't see what is makes it a "signficantly better optic"
I'm having flashbacks to when anon tried to convince me his ACT was just as good as a Geiselle S3G. The dot is better, the glass is better quality, the QC is better, the structural durability is better. The optic, as a whole, is better. It's far better than the $100 price difference between it and the TRS-25 implies. I've gone the cheap-as-fuck RD route, and if I could go back in time I would tell my penny-pinching ass to stop Kiking out and get the MD-ADS so I didn't wind up wasting $90 on something that I'd toss into the spare parts bin and never look at again after.
>>
>>28661067
they are both made in china.
>it costs more so it's better so that implies better QC
kek

Yeah anyways. I am considering both options, I may want the longer batter life the more I think about it.

It's EXACTLY the same product made by exactly the same people in exactly the same factories, whichever one happens to be cheapest on the month Primary Arms is restocking. The only difference is the mount.

ALL 20mm tube dots are 100% identical on the inside. Sig, Konus, Bushnell, Primary Arms, Holosun and 15 other names, entirely, completely and unquestionably the precise same product.

Stop delivering a crisp $100 to Primary Arms for every $50 red dot they sell. Buy the Bushnell or whatever's cheapest.
