I tried a Kobra many years ago and wasn't impressed.  I live in Arizona and even with a fresh battery at the highest setting, I could barely see it on a bright sunny day (which is nearly every day).

Is there anything out there worth buying or should I just get an ultimak setup?

Did you have the shade on the Kobra?

All the Dr. Optics type mini red dot sights are nice a bright and usable in all conditions.  I recently got a Burris fastfire and it's a great tiny little sight.  There is a guy here in the EE selling what looks to be an identical unit (though without the silkscreening) for a little over $100.  

This one

I had the shade on the Kobra and I was in the shade when shooting it...  When I say rail I mean the receiver mounted rail.

The Kobra was one of the first available in the US which used a special batter the size of a AA.  New batteries, didn't matter.

I'll be interested in a red dot soon as well since I paid extra for a fresh gun to be built at ORF with a rail...

So where does a guy get a PK-AS-S?

Hear me now, believe me later.

You have to email for the price list and email in your order.

But no worries, they are the ones that know the gear.
