Thinking about getting the Leatherwood Hi-Lux 1X50 Red Dot. Anyone used one, have feedback about it?

Thanks in advance.

Well I finally received the Leatherwood red dot site, and got a chance to take it to the range.

First off, the thing smelled like beef jerky when I pulled it out of the box (think that was from the rubber end caps). Build construction didn't look great and the red dot would get distorted at the edges of the glass.

That being said it was actually pretty accurate once I zeroed it. The red dot was a good size and easy to see in mid-day sun. Shooting .223 did not move it off of zero. It also lined up with A2 front site and flip up moe rear iron site nicely, if I wanted to cowitness.
