Go with the Vortex Crossfire. Much better made and same price range. I have Holosun, Primary Arms and Vortex. I would only get the Vortex again. Of course that is my personal opinion YMMV

Thread hijack...

Can the Vortex be used with the same mounts as the Aimpoint? i.e. Kodiak

To Hijacker Very Happy 

  I can't comment on Kodiak mounts never having owned one. BUT, I can say that Vortex and Holosun mounts are interchangeable. There seems to be some industry standard. At least between those two.

Back to Primary Arms. I have two. Good dot when it works. Very reliable on a .22 pistol. Had it riding the slide mount on a .45 and experienced two issues - cross bolt on the mount broke (will be solved with the Kodiak mount) and, more serious, after about a month, the dot started going off after about every other shot. Moving the brightness dial up or down would restore the dot - not a convenient option during sustained fire Smile

Regards,
Oleg.

I had the same problem with an Aimpoint. Turned out I didn't have the battery cover tightened down enough. It was snug, needs to be Tight!!

Try a tiny ball of tin foil on ground side of battery. I have two ultradots that need a little extra push.

I just bought a Holosun red dot (as opposed to green dot) HS503GU which has the shrouded adjustment caps and side mounted battery.  I really like that the dot can be changed to the circle dot.  The circle dot seems like an awesome option as it allows for concentric centering of the dot in the housing.  I have barely used it but I'm excited by the build quality.  I'll definitely be getting another one to put on my .45 whenever I get a frame mount.
