I wrote the owner of Lucid optics asking if he planned on selling a FDE version of the HD7, he wrote back this morning saying that I was the second person to ask and they were looking into it but wanted more feedback regarding this from people.
I shot an AR with this optic on it and had no complaints, of course we didnt dunk it in water, jump up and down on it or shoot it. The AR was a San Diego Sheriff's personally owned duty rifle, and he swears by it. So if your interested in a very well priced optic for those other than black AR builds email him at jasonwilson@bresnan.net showing your intrest. The web site is www.mylucidgear.com.
Here is a bad pic of the build it will go on.

I really like these sights and would pick one up if I had room for it. The most intriguing product to me, though, is their variable power magnifier. That really makes me want an RDS.

Yeah, my range buddies and I were pretty stocked to see that. Just wanted them to expand there line to the FDE and OD green stuff. The HD7 with the variable power flip magnifier will be the setup for me.

Lucids are great on AR's a little to heavy and high sitting for scout setup on M14/M1A or AK.

Only problem I have with that set-up is that it looks like the magnifier will hang way off the back of the upper receiver.

Yeah i dont know, its hard to tell what size the magnifier will actually be. But with most RD sights you mount it mid to forward anyway? Well it guess we will have to wait to find out.

If you look at the pic on the top of that page, you can see how far off the back the magnifier will sit. It just doesn't seem like a very natural position, especially if the magnifier has more than an inch or two of eye relief.

I like these sights a lot, but they may need change the mounting a little. Maybe give it a little forward throw.
