Very well made scope. Mounts on my firearm(s) in a strong and solid manner. Windage and Elevation knobs adjust easily and accurately and hold settings well. I really like this scope, and the quality is unsurpassed for the price. I also purchased
the flip up sites that co-witness very well together … I would give the scope at least a five star rating.
Thanks Roberts for providing detailed feedback on this product. We indeed made this red dot optic to co-witness perfectly with our Tacticon AR-15/AR-10 platform iron sights. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.

Got it today… Mounted today… Fired it today… Super happy. I am veteran myself and just needed a basic optic for my survival rifle. Nothing crazy and figured it was a veteran selling the product..what did I have to lose. I am more than blown away. Way better than I expected!! Holds zero. We put 1000 rounds down today at range and never lost its zero first day out. Me and my guys was not gentle on it at all and it held up great. Definitely going to get more products as needed. Tacticon is legit. From one combat vet to another thank you for great no nonsense working stuff!!
Awesome! We’re incredibly happy to hear that the Predator Red/Green Dot Sight is working effectively for you and we’ll be hear just a phone call, chat, or email away if you have any questions. We definitely build these optics to last and withstand zero shot after shot. Thanks for the kind words my friend.

Great value for the price! This red dot optic is better than the $550 EOTech that I have on my other rifle! I’ll be buying a few more for my future AR platforms that I’ll be building.
Thanks James! We’re pleased to hear you love the product and we’re here if you have any questions!

I just received this red dot optic this afternoon. Right out of the box I am very pleased with the quality of it. Seems to be as solid and well constructed as the Vortex Strikefire II I own but with a much friendlier price tag! I’m anxious to to get it on one of my ARs and see how it does. Thank you as always for the great products and keep up the great work!
It is what it says it is. Great bang for the buck. Perfect for my AR vermin gun. Armadillos, coyotes and pigs beware!

Great piece of hardware at an excellent price! I was looking for a decent red dot sight at a fair price and found the predator. Fits my S&W m&p15 Sport 2 perfectly. My buddy ordered one for his as well. Thanks.
Steven Dickerson –
Appears to be a very well made scope. Easy to operate, and I love different color dots. Being a combat veteran myself I will always support businesses owned by veterans.
Wow. Unbelievable. Great product and great price. We are being ripped off by other companies if this company can sell this great quality red dot green dot for this price then other companies are ripping us off. Thank you Tacticon

Great sight for one of my rim fires. Appears solid, yet is light enough to make a day at the range easier for these old eyes. Red/green knob was way too tight out of the box, but easily remedied. Will probably get another for another rifle. R Lee Ermey would approve! Thanks Jake!
FAST order shipping and delivery!!
I wanted an affordable/budget red dot sight for my recently completed AR build, so I decided to give Tacticon a try. Combat vet owned company, get it while you can homie!! ;IGY6
day one, took me about half a mag (15 rounds) to get my zero. Would have been dialed in sooner but I was having some difficulty finding my round strikes at first as they were off paper. I put a few rounds in the dirt to see what was up, then was able to adjust dot to punch ‘Murican holes in the bull at 25 yards (25=200 with 5.56 in case you don’t know). Finished the mag then proceeded to do a 30 round mag dump to see if the shaking and banging would throw my zero off. New mag inserted, back to paper and still in the 2″ bullseye. I then proceeded to smoke row of clays that I had set up at 100 yards. So far so good with both the red and green dots, I’ll double check next time I take it out to insure that moving my boom stick around hasn’t changed my zero. AR’s shouldn’t be handled gently and the sights on them should be able to take that. I’ll let you know if this one doesn’t hold up.
I have two minor criticisms so far: the mount nut is metric……WTF bruh?! The way the lens covers are mounted on the tube they can move back which makes it impossible to close and “latch” the cover until you reposition it.

Very well made RDS , especially for the price.
I bought this not expecting too much. I am very pleased and surprised at the quality. I have over 200 Rounds thru the AR and it has not shifted zero at all. Also ran a battery test and after being on constantly for 10 days, the dot is still bright and clear. Not sure how long it will last overall, but I will update when it finally dies. Well done Tacticon
Mounted on my Kel-Tec K2000.
Mount : 5 stars
Price: 5 stars
The rest: 4 stars. Red “dot” is not really a spread but more like a dot. Still gives a 3 inch pattern at 25 yards, though, and is good enough for plinking and close quarters. Main complaint is my version did not have windage and elevation knobs, but instead flat head slots for adjustment. This resulted in having to fumble around with a screwdriver with a loaded weapon. Knobs would have been much preferred and were in the description of the product. Will likely buy another product from your company Tacticon Armament!

I just purchased this sight for my new AR. Not only do I love the sight, (getting super tight groupings) but I can’t believe the customer service. Spectacular, to say the least!! I was filling out my warranty reg. at 11:00 p.m. and was not receiving the conf. email. I dropped “Bryce” a msg, and lo-and-behold… He apologized and registered the product himself. At 11:00 p.m. Not only that, I had a Q about sighting (the instr. that come with the sight aren’t the greatest), and Bryce took the time to get me figured out. Not only is this an amazing little sight for sub $30, but their customer service… priceless. Customer for life!!

Just received & mounted the Preditor V1 optic on my AR. It should co-witness beautifully with my Tacticon flip up sights. Can’t believe the quality for the price. Thanks for the top notch products!
jhanson64151 (verified owner) –
For the price, I was unsure how well this optic would work. I was pleasantly surprised on how easy it was to mount and sight in. Both red and green dot is easy to see in full sunlight on lowest settings. Zeroed quickly. Fired 80 rounds out of my 5.56 AR and still holds zero. Excellent product for the price! Would definitely recommend!

Top notch customer service is definitely a plus!!!! I’m a Marine Corps veteran myself and I’m always proud to patronize a fellow veteran. Semper Fi.
i just got these. pretty bad azz especially for $35!!!I have an AR M3 and 2 CX4 storms (.45 and 9mm) and these are awesome. Had to sight them in, but get them while they last. I recommended them to my cousin (AR 15 M3 and Scorpion 9mm) loved it
Gordon L Sisler (verified owner) –
Excellent product. Mounted and sighted in great and easy on my DPMS AR-15. Very clear. Love the green dot.

I purchased the Predator Red/Green Dot sight back in February. It is a phenomenal sight for the money. I just purchased my first AR, and everyone told me you get what you pay for, well, let me tell you, I did! I got a great sight made by veterans that is extremely durable and well-built. Their customer service has been nothing short of phenomenal as well! I purchased the iron sights as well and have been extremely pleased with them! Keep up the great work and thank you again for your service!
I recently purchased the Predator V1 Red Dot sight from Amazon. This was after seeing a review of the “three best economy Red Dot sights” on YouTube. The Predator V1 was one of the three sights. I read the reviews on Amazon and decided to give the Sight a try. Upon receiving the sight, an inspection showed it to be well made in appearance. I mounted it onto my Smith & Wesson M & P 15 and zeroed it using the absolute co-witness method. I then ran 10 rounds through it to check the zero. It was perfect. My AR is zeroed at 300 meters (I’m a veteran; old habits die hard!} so the sight was a smidgen low at 20 yards; however the windage was perfectly centered. The only knock on the sight is that the Red and Green dots (Green more so than Red) are slightly fuzzy. Not a big deal for Close Quarters use. I also like the fact I can still use my Iron Sights for longer shots. For the price you can’t beat this sight and the Lifetime warranty is icing on the cake. Great budget sight!

I was very skeptical about this purchase. After all how good can a 35 dollar dot sight be ? Well let me just say this sight Exceeded my expectations. If a 53 year old can revert back to his younger days “this sight is totally bad ass”. I never expected the quality construction of this sight which is immediately apparent as soon as you pull it out of the box. The clarity is amazing and didn’t take much to zero in. I’ve told everyone about it. Thank you for producing such an awesome product at a very reasonable price.

Second Tacticon purchase and just as happy as the first, zeroed perfect and quality is great. Veteran myself and like the fact the company in owned by veteran.
Rich LaNave (verified owner) –
I have purchased three of these red dot sights. I have also had several friends buy this red dot. It is exceptional, especially for the price. Fantastic quality and customer service. Also, the lifetime warranty is the gold standard. Buy this red dot you will thank me.
RICHARD OKUTSU (verified owner) –
Ran the Predator V1 hard thru its paces bumping her a few times against cover in doing so and it held zero after 10 mags of hard trigger time. Good product for the money.
Mike A. (verified owner) –
I have purchased so many over priced red dots over the years. The V1 is absolutely gorgeous. It far exceeds my expectations and is far superior to my previously purchased red dots. I love the attached AR style base that cowitnesses perfectly with Tacticon’s flip up iron sights. This is simply an outstanding product. I recommend this product (along with the flip up sights) to anyone and everyone.
Thank you for such an amazing product. Thank you for your service to our country. Thank you for keeping the business in the USA.
Love it, very easy to sight in, locks in easily on pic rail. Will buy again.

Was looking for a budget RDS for my rifle and couldn’t beat the price and the warranty. Have had for almost a year and have not had to adjust zero since day one sighting it in. Simple and secure mounting, easy but accurate adjustments make this a great deal. The fact that this is a Veteran owned company just adds icing to the cake. I reccomend this to all my gun buddies and anyone looking for a great RDS and not break the bank. 5+ stars and will definitely buy more for future rifle builds. Might have to try a V3 for the next one!!!

I now own 4 of these red dots. All are on AR platforms in 5.56, 300blk, and 9mm. The sights install and zero quickly. I waited until I could make multiple range visits before leaving my review, and I could not be happier with the products that I purchased. Easily ringing steel at 100yrds within just a few rounds to zero. Each sight has had a few 100 rnds sent down range and holds zero just fine. One of the sights has been on constantly for over a month on the brightest setting with no signs of dimming. Very pleased and will be buying further products from Tacticon Armament.

Bang for your buck! I bought this optic for an AR that I built for my pops. Built it on Monday sighted in on Sunday and I harvested a wild hog the next day at 90 yards. The optic is very easy to sight in. After mounting it was only four inches off center at 4 o’clock at 50 yards. Great price, build quality, and accuracy. I just ordered another one for my new AR build. Oh yeah lifetime warranty! Happy to support a Veteran owned company.
Ryan Morrissey (verified owner) –
I just love this sight. All the reviews mention price and that is certainly huge. However, the overall build quality and the features are the best part. The glass is clear and the red/green dots are bright. This thing seriously clamps down as well. Jake and his crew do things right at Tacticon. I now own the 24 Battle Bag, this sight and soon hopefully a rifle bag….hint hint. Im a customer for life and will be filling out my builds with Tacticon gear from now on. Thanks to everyone there for putting your customers first in every way possible.

Received this product a few days ago. Mounted on my Hi-Point 9mm carbine. Took it to range to sight in. After a few minor adjustments, had it zeroed in perfectly and held zero through about 500 rounds. A well built piece of equipment. Easy to mount. For the price, one can’t beat it. Would highly recommend!! Great company, great shipping and great communication.
This review may get long, so I’ll save you some time if you’re not into reading. Looking for an effective red/green dot in this price range? Look no further, this is a great option for a very budget friendly price, plus you get to support a veteran owned business right here in the USA.
There are no shortage of options when it comes to choosing your optic. You could spend endless hours researching and reading/watching reviews. So why choose a Tacticon? Let’s get into it.
1. You have the outstanding Jacob Dines at your service. Jake is a veteran and he’s completely invested in your satisfaction with his products. His service & his personal touch is something you just don’t see anymore and I truly appreciate his dedication to his customers. He’s giving you a lifetime warranty and won’t stop until you’re happy and 100% satisfied.
2. This is a well thought out system and it’s extremely easy to use / idiot proof. Follow the directions and you’ll be in good shape. Need help? Ask Jake. That’s what I did, and in a few quick sessions I had this zeroed and am having a fantastic time using it.
3. Best bang for your buck. Ok, if you’re looking at ACOGs etc get out of here, this is not for you. But if you have a basic setup (under $1,000 rifle/carbine/pistol) and you’re not looking to spend too much just to finish off with a quality sight that doesn’t cost as much as your fire arm. This is the business. You want to spend $2k on a sight, that’s your own choice, but for $49 this just can’t be beat.
4. You can use it for everything! Meaning I’ll definitely be buying more for some of the upcoming projects and builds that are in the works. Keeps my costs down while having the confidence that this is the real deal.
5. Tacticon is one of those special companies you really look forward to doing business with and I am definitely excited to get my hands on some more of their products. Well done Jake and team, ya’ll are the best!

One of the best red/green dots you can get at this price point. I’ve bought 2 and very happy with both of them. Nice finish and build. Can’t go wrong, just buy it!

This is my second purchase of the Predator V1 red/green dot sight. Not because the first one went bad, but because I was SO IMPRESSED with my first one, I had to buy another to put on a new build! Exceptional delivery time, fantastic quality, amazing packaging, true reliability. Shipping was fast and quick. I look forward to purchasing more of these optics or other Tacticon Armament optics for my future builds. I am looking to try the Predator V3 in the future. I am currently waiting for my body armor package to come, and I couldn’t be more stoked for it. Always the best, Tacticon Armament!

Perfect fit once again. Second AR mount. My wife loves hers.
And follow up after the sale.
While this scope is being touted as a red dot scope, the green dot option is even more impressive. In fact, the green dot setting is crystal clear at night or in low light environments, which makes this a great option for those who like to change between the red and green dot while using a scope.

This was my first order with Tacticon and I wasn’t sure about ordering this at first ,but after having it for a few weeks now I have to say this is a great sight.
In my opinion well worth the money you pay and I recommend this to anyone looking for a great sight for a nice price.

Bought one through the Amazon page. Have to say I wasn’t expecting a whole lot for the price. SURPRISE. Mount it solid. Windage and elevation is easy and stays dialed in. Tried it on my AR and my SKS. Handled both like a champ.
I’ve only owned this for a couple of weeks so I stopped at 4 stars. The optic feels well made and mounts easily to a picatinny rail with only the provided tools. I have it paired with the Falcon V1 magnifier and they line up perfectly. I also bought the a boresight from Tacticon and that made it easy to zero without firing. I’ll shoot it in a week or two to see how it holds up and how well the zero performs.
