I am using Nikon's Spur red dot and I have had zero issues with it on my .44 mag. Desert Eagle. I would like to get the SuperDot for my shotgun for next years Spring Turkey season. I checked out the SuperDot at SHOT Show and I was very impressed with the quality and price.

Tools-free elevation and windage - nice.  I worked for Nikon decades ago and wish I still had the employee discount  Laughing

It looks like "Tools Free" means you use the nub on the cap. If you lose the caps, then you'll need a tool. It might be a screwdriver, but the nub doesn't look like a normal screwdriver. Might be better than AP's stupid double prongs, but I can't find any pictures with the caps removed.

Looks pretty nice but wish the adjustments weren't in 1moa increments. The window is advertised as 22mm so should have the same viewable as a 1" UD if not slightly larger,

It looks like "no tools" is because it has external adjustments like the elevation turret on the MDII. I will probably have to get one just to see. Very Happy I will admit that a 14hr battery life is troubling. Hoping either a misprint or life on full power.

Len, are you sure about that? Looks like caps with a built in screwdriver nub.

Too bad there isn't a YouTube video of this dot yet.

I'm also becoming a red dot junkie. My ideal red dot would be a 9000SC that is half as long and half as heavy. I love the huge objective.

Sure? Nope. But since they marked the turn direction on the outside and made the cap look grippy then that is my best guess. That cross slot does not look very strong. It could be a visual reference.

SuperDot is 2 MOA and the SPUR is 3 MOA.. I can't recall if the SuperDot of the Spur is the one that comes with a little tool for zeroing the sight. Both are easy to use and make for quick adjustments. If you guy's have more question's I will do my best to get answers for you.

Made an offer on the last one on eBay. Got it. Now I just have to wait a bit.

Oooh. I'm excited to hear about it. It's only about .5 ounces heavier than a H-1.

-1 To LenV Smile I mean, I ordered when there were two.  I know that Len would want it too, so I left one for him lol!

Did you notice that Optics Planet started charging sales tax in multiple states!?  I think, effective 10/1.  I placed couple orders last month, and they were tax free for shipping to WI.

Me too. The SuperDot is tough to find and appears to be selling well as many places have it back ordered. I just want to find one for my shotgun for Spring 2019. Gobbler's beware!

FYI. Optics Planet Accepted my offer of 180.00. It looks like they added more now.

Len,  How does that work?  Do you email online vendors and make an offer (instead of just clicking on the item and placing it a shopping cart)?

Sounds like a way to save a few more bucks  cheers

Optics Planet is selling that scope on Ebay with BIN or make offer. I made an offer. I was pretty sure they would take 180.00 since that is still more than it would be if they did a whole store 10% sale like they do quite often. If your patient you can probably get it from them for around 176.00

Please post pictures when you guys get them. I'm curious to see what they really look like instead of the half rendered looking stock photos.

I got mine on Saturday. Quite nice and looks like a good alternative to the Aimpoint if you want to save a bit of cash.

I think Optics Planet routed my scope thru every state in the Union. It felt like it took forever to get here. I am afraid I am not going to be very kind on this critique. Starting with the negative things about this scope not in any particular order.

1. They mention that the first two settings are for NV equipment. That is true. Worthless for Bullseye.

2. Battery cover only has about 2 turns from on tight to off the scope. Very fine threads and easy to cross.

3. Windage and elevation caps are tiny. I know I have big hands but these are the smallest caps I have ever seen. Very hard to remove.

4. W&E caps are small and thread is even smaller. It took forever to get back on without cross threading.

5. Ok, I did save this for last. The %^&^ scope will not fit on a weaver rail. Picatinny only. I really wanted to put it on my 52 but I did not want to ruin a $90.00 BME mount. I have a bunch of $8.00 #401 mounts so I modified the mount on my 41. Probably for the best. I don't have to change sights very often and won't have to mess with the caps.

Modified #401




Positive things..
1. Body is solid and 2.optics are clear 3.Objective end threaded so screw on extension looks possible.
