The Tacticon™ Predator V2 Reflex Sight with red dot and green dot is made from high-quality aluminum alloy. This reflex sight is waterproof and fog proof and will never take in water or fog the lenses up when you’re shooting. This optic can be adjusted to red or green depending on what level of light you’re shooting in. There are also 9 different brightness adjustments for both red/green color and 4 different reticles to choose from. Extra set of batteries and lens cleaner included with your Predator V2 Reflex Sight purchase.

This review highlights everything from Ordering to Mounting. This optics setup is going on a .22 conversion AR-15 pistol to be used in 3-gun style shooting.
– The Ordering process was the typical, simple, standard online ordering process similar to most websites. Ordered both the Predator V2 (red dot) & the Falcon V1 (magnifier) on Mon & received it on Fri. Shipping was pretty quick.
– Packaging was small enough to fit in the mailbox. I was impressed with the texture & labeling on the packaging (altho, it doesn’t affect my purchasing decision). Like the website says, it works great when giving as a gift.
– Predator came with several blemishes (minor scrapes around the glass shroud, shouldn’t affect performance). However, this is going on a beater gun for the kids to use, so I’ll overlook my disappointment with substandard perfection & drive-on since they’ll enjoy it & won’t even notice the blems anyway.
– US flag etched in top of the shroud was a nice surprise. Even tho it’s shown in the pics on the website, I didn’t notice it when I ordered.
– Mounting both the Predator V2 & Falcon V1 were fairly simple & straight-forward. I mounted the Falcon 1st as far back on the rail as possible. Then mounted the Predator as close to the Falcon as possible. Together they both take up the entire top of the upper receiver. If I ever decide to install BUIS, I’ll have to move everything forward. The Falcon will take up most of the upper & the Predator will have to be pushed up onto the hand guard rail. We’ll see if I need to move them forward, later when I get it to the range, in order to get the proper eye relief.
– The instruction sheet didn’t mention that you have to keep pressing the ‘On’ button to cycle thru the different intensity levels of the reticle. The cool part is that each color maintains its last intensity level. So I plan to use a bright green setting for daytime shooting and a low red for nighttime shooting.
– There is only 1 locking screw for both Elevation & Windage settings. The image on the instruction sheet is rather dark & was difficult to locate the locking screw (it’s the flat-head screw on the side with the ‘On Green’ switch).
I rated 4 out of 5 stars … mainly since this is my 1st purchase from Tacticon (so I took the middle of the road), the blems on the Predator, & the confusion on the instructions. Other than those issues, I’m pretty happy with this purchase so far. I’ll do another review on the “sighting in” procedures & the ability to hold zero after I get it to the range & run it thru an AASA competition. I’ll probably include a review from 1 of the kids as well.

I bought my first V2 reflex sight on Amazon. That’s where I learned about Tacticon Armament and found their website and bought another. I put my first one on my Ruger PC9,9mm, and works like a charm so I’m buying one for my Kel-Tec SU16,5.56. I’ll bet I get a few shooters I know that will want to try them out. Thanks brother

Jacob, I talked to you awhile back about me mounting the Predator V2 on my new Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite. You gave me some feed back that it might be to big for the Ruger, so I decided to test and look at reflex sights out on the market that look the same and all produced in China at the same factory just banded with different company names. The sizes of the sights were pretty close in size and fuzzy red dots and would not hold zero.
They did not have any of the features you r Predator V2 has. So I placed my order placed on Monday and received on Friday packaging great . I was like kid with a new toy the construction of the sight was top notch very well built sturdy, mounting it to the top rail on the Ruger was a breeze. I used a lazerlyte bore sight to sight in the Predator V2 and locked in the settings with the lock screw on the V2. First shot dead on. I know this Predator was built for an AR platform and I am using it on a Ruger 22LR. Pistol with my eye sight it’s large enough window for me to see, but the bonus for me is at the lowest brightness setting red or green it’s crystal clear for me to see the reticle with no fuzziness or star effect which is a first for me. I spent this past Friday and Saturday at my local in door gun range firing off about 500 rounds . I could not have been more happy with grouping “this sight hold ZERO”.
While I was shooting few guys came over see what I was shooting and commenting on my shot placement grouping. They were so impressed I gave them you Tacticon address so they could order for their AR’s. I have some pictures I will try to send you again from one combat vet to another thank you brother

Great value for the $$. Well made, bright clear reticle. Haven’t mounted or zeroed yet, so durability is still unknown. If it’s like other products Jake sell , it will hold up well and if there’s a problem he will take care of it ASAP

I ordered the predator v2 for my .300 blackout. It was here in 3 days just as promised. The sight is clear and crisp. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend you guys to anyone looking for quality product an extremely affordable price. I was sceptical at first because of the pricing but I can honestly say that I will be purchasing from tacticon whenever I need something else

I’ve had this optic on my home built .300 AAC through 2 hunting season’s. It was originally bought on the premise that I would be buying a much more expensive optic after after the first season. i found out quickly, there was no need to. It performed perfectly. I have since built other rifles,and they now have Tacticon sights and optics.

Love it. Have it on my AR-15. Took very little time to zero. All tools needed come with package. Also gives extra batteries. Shot 70 rounds 5.56. So far, so good. I recommend this purchase.

Best Reflex sight for the money bar none. Great quality product without breaking the bank. Fast and easy ordering, and the folks in the office actually answer your emails in a timely fashion. Will buy from these guys again and again!!!!!

I love this sight. Super bright, awesome reticles can’t beat the price. I’m buying these for all my ar rifles. I highly recommend.
Super impressed with the V2 reflex sight from Tacticon! Optic arrived in excellent condition and it looks and feels way more expensive than it is.
I’ve only run a few mags through it, but so far so good. Having both the Predator V2 & Firefly V1R laser/flashlight on my AR really compliment each other and completes my setup (for now) and I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you Tacticon. You guys rock!

This reflex site is amazing. Where do I start… The box it came in makes it seem of a quality that is much much higher than the price reflects. Installation on the rail is extraordinarily easy and smooth. The product is extremely sturdy and made of great materials. The American flag on top adds an extra touch that I love. The brightness levels on this sight are amazing and there is a level of brightness to suit anyone. Also the choice of 4 different reticles is another plus. It is extremely accurate and was basically at zero from the second I put it on. 250 rounds later, still holding zero. The only negative thing I have to say is I wish I purchased this directly through Tacticon’s website instead of Amazon so I could have fully supported them. I will be making purchases direct through Tacticon from now on ! And yes, I would trust this product with my life. It is mounted on a Radical firearms SOCOM 5.56, another great company who works very closely with and employees many veterans. Great job guys keep up the good work!
I mounted my Predator V2 sight on my Ruger PC9 Carbine, right above the magazine receiver, and took it to the range. Shot 50 rounds and consistently put them in a 3″ cluster at 100 yards. Windage was off by about 2″ at 100 yards, but vertical height was dead on out of the box.
I’ll definitely be purchasing additional products from Tacticon!

This was my fifth purchase and third optic from Tacticon. Their customer service and products are exceptional. I have recommended this company to several of my friends, a practice which I seldom do but with Tacticon it was a pleasure.

Mounted this on a Mossberg 500, set up as a tactical shotgun. This is an awesome Reflex Sight! Easy to mount and sight in with my laser bore sight – locked in and right on target! As a fellow Veteran, it’s always great to work with a Veteran Owned Company!!

I have had sights that were way more expensive than this that worked was worse. I am very satisficed with everything I have gotten from Tacticon so far. Sights to body armor for the price you can not beat the produces.

This was my third order with Tacticon. And I’m still very pleased with their products.
This sight was very easy to install and get sighted in ,and with the Magnifier it works great.
I did have a bit of trouble getting the Magnifier to line up ,but Tacticon has a good video the explains how to get it to sight in.that helps.
The sight is a good build feels solid and solar held up great after 300 rounds on my ar 15 in 556,and on my nine mm Carbine.
Great buy I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a nice red dot at a budget friendly price.
Gunny (verified owner) –
I have two of these and they are great. I guess a little to great I was going to order a third one and seen the price went up $10. I will still get another later.
Grumpy Gunny (verified owner) –
I have three of these and getting ready to order another. I gave it four star for one reason. Some times the red switch has to be pushed two or three times before it will come on. If you turn on the green first its fine. I use the green most of the time anyway. Good gear at good prices1 Keep it up Tacticon !

I run this sight on a bull pup 12 gauge shooting 1 oz slugs. I received it in a couple days, mounted it up, and bore sighted it. The next day I went out back of the farm to do some real testing. I had 2.5″ grouping at 60 yards. Needless to say I was impressed. The target acquisition is blazing too. Which is good because I enjoy hunting hogs. So far I’ve ran through miles of woods and about a hundred rounds. It still holds zero without any adjustments. Only problem I had was the reticle got slightly “fuzzy” after a long rainy day. I was told to dry it off and leave it on for a while, and it went right back to good as new. *I’m not trying to break it, but it’s not getting babied either.

Great company to deal with and even better products. Shipped quickly and quality in everything I’ve ordered.. I already have my next purchases in mind through their site.
Gene McAvoy (verified owner) –
Love mine – once sighted in I can hit 2 inch targets with ease. Have purchased several after initial impression with my first have them on several rifles ranging from 22, 223 and 300BLK. Good value.
SCOTT DREDGE (verified owner) –
Absoultely greatest company I have ever dealt with. Great pricing and the products are durable. This is my thrid optic purchased, it came in great packaging and easy to install. I have my next purchase already thought of. Thanks for a quailty product and great customer care.
Gunny (verified owner) –
Work pretty good but it easily changes from red to green while shooting. I have purchased three of these.
James brambach –
Nice thought to have a good reflex sight. Spent 5 years in the army infantry and have used a standard cco and acog for my m4. I put this on my ar 15 and it looks cool and love that this is from a veteran ran store, and the sight has held an accurate zero after 50 rounds. Zeroed quickly and painlessly as well using minimal ammunition.
I own just about every sight they offer on here and honestly, I can find very few flaws-you do have some glare but this is caused not by quality, but by lighting and that it is a reflex scope not a holographic.
All in all this is an amazing reflex sight and you wont find any better for this price range!
I work with LE Tac Team as a Medic. Mounted the Tacticon Predator V2 on my AR; my Team Commander thought it was a no name Chinese piece of junk. The other guys have sights ranging from $200 to $600. At a recent Tactical Rifle class, we zeroed at 50 yards, most had to take 5-6 shots and make adjustments, mine was still on target from the last time I zeroed it over a year ago. Fired over 1000 rounds that day, no problems. At the end of the day we took shots at steel targets 200 and 300 yards out. Still on zero. Most guys had to take 3-4 shots to ring steel, I hit steel at 200 yards on the first shot and 300 yards in 2 shots, all with this red dot sight. Awesome product, awesome company! Thanks Tacticon!
