    This seems suspiciously cheap since the prices I normally see are between two and four hundred. It looked good since I'm trying to keep it cheap. If you have a better alternative post it up. It's probably going to go on an SKS.

    I got one from a very reputable seller on Arfcom, $75, works great and is very sturdy. I doubt it's as good as an aimpoint by far, but then again, I don't need it to be.
    Edit: Not the one in your link, but a fakepoint kind.

    The idea was to find one that doesn't do any of the things you mentioned.

    I refuse to lose hope in the affordable red dot for the masses. It's the era of hope and change bitch.

    I can't speak to the product but i've ordered shit from Optics Planet before and it was fine. It was good quality stuff though, no idea how this product is.

    I put an ebay fakepoint on my 10/22 for a whopping $40 shipped. Wouldn't even consider it for a SHTF or possible HD firearm.

    Obviously I can't speak for their red dots but I have a scope of theirs with which i wasn't terribly impressed.
