I don't have one but there's a couple of threads with good things to say about center point. I use a NcStar 1x red dot w/ laser, perfect so far.

This M68-clone has red and green dots. Only two light settings each and I'm not sure what the green does other than, well, look green.



Now that I've tried it I'd get the all red dot clone next time with multiple, not just two, light settings.

BTW, these use the cheapie AG13 batteries (requires a pair) rather than the 1/3N lithium.

I use a Center Point 3-9x scope and I'm really happy with it.

I shot 450 rounds with this scope on my 15/22 and it performed fantastically until the scope ring screws started to vibrate loose, then the groups opened up. :-) I didn't want to loctite them until the scope had proven itself. It has locking collars on focus, windage, and elevation. The reticle brightness knob is tight and has positive detents. If the battery gets low, the green color won't work because the green LED uses too much power, but the red continues to work.

The batteries that came with the unit ( they sent two ) lasted about 10 minutes apiece. This is my only concern. Battery life.

On the plus side, I was putting 3 or 4 rounds in the same hole.

I am using the 4-16X40

Good stuff.

I have the centerpoint red/green on mine. No problems at all with the scope. I am around 900 rounds so far.
