I picked one up about two months ago - - -

If you happen to use the red illumination at night, you will likely wind up illuminating yourself, it's That Bright even on the '1' setting. Use the green as intended.
The eye relief is about 3.75 to 4 inches, though I've used it in a scout configuration without too much problem.
The mounting is solid, with only one cross-bar it will fit either Weaver or M1913 spec rails.
I haven't been able to fully test it, but there might be slight parallax issues at short range if you don't have a consistant cheek/chin weld. Put your eye in the same spot every time and that's a non-issue.
The elevation and windage adjustments seem to be very positive, adjusting the sights first one way, then back gave a repeatable point-of-impact.
The newest model comes with rudimentary backup sights machined into the top of the sight, the oldest model does not. If you get one you could wind up with three sets of backup sights :lol:


It IS a $150 sight, not a $450 ACOG, so you get what you pay for and don't get what you didn't, enuf said. That said, unless you're in combat or facing dedicated opponents, it will give you a consistant point-of-aim. I'm happy with mine even tho I decided t mount it on something other than my PS90.

Good review. I have one also (Christmas Present) and I like it. Short eye relief and the lenght are the only thing to be aware of. To large for a PS90 but works fine on the FS200 or and AR15.

Actually, I looked at some of the reviews recently on Midway USA and on a couple of other site sthats ell them (reviews that people who bought them left). For some people, it seemed that they might have bought an EOtech instead, but did not have the money. So, they bought this particular Bushnell.

Everyone said they loved it, and a few even preferred it to an Eotech. I think it is a good sight.

The only neg I read is that the actual opening U look thru is smaller than it is rated. So, it's actually 25mm supposedly, not 30mm.
