Does anyone have any experience with these sights? I am shopping for a sight for my Mossberg 590. I was leaning toward the Bushnell holosight and then found the Mepro 21 and 25. I can't find a local shop that has them though. Make me think there is a reason that nobody stocks them.. Any feedback is welcome.

I installed one on a customer's AR, I was impressed with it. It has a larger FOV than the trijicon reflex. Looked to be as sturdy as the trij reflex. The mount is included with it as well. My only beef was the reticle. The dot is too small IMHO. Other than that I really liked it. I remembered that I had some pics on my server. I'm too lazy for them all, but here is a side by side pic.

It has the same washout problems that the Trijicon Reflex does.

It also is a cheaper copy of the real thing. if you want Reflex, go Trijicon, if you want red dot, go with either EOTech or Aimpoint.

maybe more of a washout due to the location of the fiber optic. I dunno, I have not shot a mounted site yet.

From my limited use, the washout of the dot was very bad. Any number of targets and or backgrouds would make the dot hard to see. Another thing I didn't like was the blue lens. Off colored targets will disappear in to the background.
