Midway is the cheapest I've seen but they are currently out of stock. I have one on my UZI & it works great!!!

I have the following:

TASCO OPTIMA 2000 3.5 MOA DOT $130

They are factory new in the box with full warranty. I also have various mounts depending on what you want to mount it on..mounts range from $26 - $40 depending.

I believe it will...however if it won't they make a weaver rail style mount for the Optima

how exactly does the on/off work for this sight?
i understand that you remove the hood to turn it on, but does that involve a pressure switch that the hood hits or is it photo-sensitive?

pretty much i am asking if the sight will work in the dark...

thanks again

i thought it was off when the hood was on it

My understanding is that the brighter the ambient light the brighter they get. In darkness they don't work at all. That's why I don't have one yet I'm waiting until they come up with one that actually works in the dark. If I am wrong then good because I wan't one too.

www.natchezss.com has them for under $122.00 all the time, but I don't know if they are in stock.

One problem with Natchez and now Midway, is their return policies, which can be frustrating.
Used to be able to send back almost anything unused to Midway, but too many people must have taken advantage of them, so this year things are a bit different.

BTW, I've never tried the Optima, or seen it on in a store and wonder if the dot is clear and somewhat round. Anyone?
