Has anyone tried the A1Optic Holosight? Price makes it tempting, but no user reviews to be found anywhere. The fact that I've seen the same design under half a dozen different names is not encouraging. I'd like to try a sight of that type on a Mini-14 but don't have the bux for an Eotech.

Since nobody else has any comments about this thing, I went ahead and bought one. I'll give you a review on it when I get to shoot it.

The design is a direct copy of the old Nydar shotgun sight with the addition of a light (they claim it's a laser) to illuminate the reticle. The Nydar used ambient light from the top of the prism to illuminate the dot under the prism. Should make for a much brighter dot image at least. Sorta like a poor man's Bushnell Holosight at $49.95 instead of $250.
