My Aimpoint 2000 died some time back. I was informed they do not service anything over 10 years old.

I will not buy another one.

Replaced it with a Vortex.

K., I have only seen a prototype and do not know what the finished product of the SuperDot will look like. I have been asked a lot so there are definitely others interested as well. Certainly, the trucolor, 15,000 hours of battery life and 5-year warranty are big pluses for both products. I promise to pass along info on the SuperDot when I get some.

Just got a Sig Sauer Romeo 5 XDR for $179 brand new on E-Bay. My brother has the 5 X model and it's a great Red Dot sight and uses one AAA battery which can be changed without removing the sight. I also have a Holosun sight on my AR and will see which one of the two I like better. The XDR has a dot and a 65moa circle around the dot. You can choose which you want to use. I like the dot within the circle myself.

I'm a sucker for trying cheap crap once in a while, just to see what happens.
For $18, I'm having a Bush nell TRS-25 shipped from China for my first gen PC9.
Yes, it's split into two words.

I suspect that it will be plastic magnifying glasses with a painted oval dot taped to a flat black toilet paper tube, but I have been surprised before.

If you must, the Vortex Viper and Venom are excellent choices, although they are bottom mount for batteries.
The venom is not a bottom mount battery.

I had a bushnell 25 on an AR in the past. Was not wowed, but for the price was not disappointed either. I've been waiting for the venom in 6 moa to come back in stock but maybe another bushnell is worth a shot. You guys are making me think.

I just installed a TRS-25 on a TACCOM rail on my PC Carbine. I've got 4 TRS-25s; it's cheap and accurate enough for my needs.

Haven't shot it yet (just put it on a couple of hours ago) but the red dot co-witnesses w/the top of the front sight, which I like. I also like that the red dot mounted this way is on the barrel end of the gun and eliminates any possibility of a loss of zero due to separating the barrel from the stock/receiver.

If you haven't seen it yet, here's the link to the TACCOM rail.

You just remove the ghost ring and replace it w/the rail. Something I learned in the process is that while you remove the elevation plate w/a regular allen wrench (1/16th inch I think) to get at one of the 2 mounting screws, those mounting screws are T10 torx head screws (NOT allen heads). Couldn't figure out why none of my allen wrenches would fit the screws until I shined a light and looked thru a magnifying glass at them. Fortunately, I had a cheap set of torx head sockets in my tool box.

When you remove the 2 torx head screws, a third mounting hole is revealed that is used to mount the Taccom rail.
