I had one.

Pros
Reticle is effective
Illuminated
Not too heavy
Price is right

Cons
Glass is horrible
Distorted and not clear edge to edge
Reticle blurry and I couldn't make out the garage markers

If the glass was decent I would have kept it. Everyone's eye sight is different. Maybe the glass will ok for you.

Had one on my 380 since they first came out.
I find none of the issues Carnivore notes. As in ZERO.
Glass is clear edge to edge, and focus is great - not blurry whatsoever.
Very much like mine, and actually wish I had bought another...

Cheers,
Nog
