Cons

There will always be disadvantages, though, and this specific model is not an exemption. Most of the complaints raised have been related to customer service or shipping dilemmas, although there have also been some negative feedback related to performance, some of which are highlighted below:

χ Poor reaction to recoil due to non-sturdy support;

χ Questionable flashlight durability in relation to actual shots fired, still recoil related;

χ Laser failing to work after just a few days of use.

 

Conclusion

In summation, you might be able to find another viable alternative which may be a bit more costly but could withstand recoil related pressures which should be of primary consideration for products like this. Not to mention how a handgun or a pistol would not really pack in that much pressure. However, the UTG 2-in-1 Tactical LED Flashlight with Red Laser is still worth considering thanks to its rather affordable price tag. If you’re looking for an affordable tactical LED flashlight, this one is a good choice.

 

UTG Model 4/16 Complete Match-grade Rear Sight Review

UTG Model 4.16 Complete Match-grade Rear Sight

When it comes to shooting, perhaps one of the most important factors to consider is accuracy. It’s a matter of pride for most shooters to shoot straight and to put a bullet right where they want to. For that, rear sights can be invaluable. And although some sights can cost a pretty penny, others are downright cheap. The UTG Model 4/16 Complete Match-grade Rear Sight falls firmly into the cheap category, but that doesn’t mean that they’re to be avoided. In fact, for a lot of shooters this rear sight can be all they need.

 

Features

The UTG Model 4/16 Complete Match-grade Rear Sight is made from aluminum and steel, and it comes in a matte-black finish. It’s about 1.41 inches high, and it can be adjusted for elevation and wind. It features A2 style dual apertures to enable close range and long range aiming. It also comes with a one-piece integral Picatinny mounting deck.

 

Pros and Cons

Obviously, the price has to be mentioned first. In general you may save more than a hundred bucks when you get this UTG rear sight instead of buying from a “name” brand. But there’s more to these sights than just the affordability. The construction is also considered very durable by just about everyone. For the most part, this rear sight is very easy to mount, and once it’s in place it tends to stay in place. When you use it, the dual apertures prove to be quite useful both for long range and for close quarters. It’s also very easy to adjust.

For some shooters, there may be a problem in finding the right front sights to work well with this rear sight. Users should also keep in mind that it is not collapsible, so that must be taken into consideration when getting a long scope.

Conclusion

Like most “affordable” sights, standardized quality control may not be uniform across the board. You may be among the lucky ones who get the perfectly fine units, but you may also be the unlucky shooter who gets a shoddier sample. Chances are, though, that you’ll get the better ones.

But all in all, the price makes it a satisfactory gamble. If you get a good model then you save hundreds of dollars, and if you get a bad one you just need to get it replaced or you’re out a few measly bucks.

 

 

 

 

UTG 4.0″ ITA Red/Green Dot Sight with Riser Adaptor, QD Mount and Flip-Open Lens Caps Review

UTG 4.0 ITA Red-Green Dot Sight with Riser AdaptorThe fact that the UTG 4.0″ ITA Red/Green Dot Sight is made in China might worry some people, but the construction is great. While it’s made out of aluminum — which gives it a pleasant, lightweight feel – it’s truly a solid scope that looks and feels like it should cost a lot more. It takes a ridiculously few number of shots to get it lined up, and it holds zero no matter the circumstances.

The green setting is nice and clear even in the brightest conditions, such as direct sunlight, but the red is much better suited for low-light situations or inside of a shooting range. The brightness setting allows users to “pick their strength”, and even when the lights are at their highest intensity, they are not distracted. This scope also provides the option of using small, medium or large dots. Someone using this scope for home protection will find that the red light provides for quick target acquisition, especially when it’s dark. Some people have complained about seeing multiple dots, but this is a problem that seems to only occur with those who wear corrective lenses or who have vision problems – it’s not a defect in the product.

UTG 4.0 ITA Red-Green Dot Sight with Riser Adaptor2This scope comes with everything that is needed to get going right out of the box. Included with the scope are allen wrenches for installation and adjustments, batteries (one to use and a spare), two mounts (high and low) and flip-up lenses caps. The only parts of this scope that are plastic are the lenses caps, but they are high quality and removable.

The quick detach feature is extremely convenient; if the firearm and mounted sight won’t fit in a gun case, for example, it’s quick and easy to just pop off the sight. Best of all, in spite of how easy it is the remove when you want it off, the sight will not become loose during continued use.

The low price and country of origin might raise some eyebrows, but this thing cannot be beat. At this price, it’s definitely worth buying to test out. It can almost be guaranteed that the sight won’t be returned!
