Crosman Copperhead Red Dot Sight
would rate 0/5 if I could
Extremely low quality piece of equipment. Granted I wasn't expecting military class or anything from a $25 sight, but I sure wasn't expecting the battery housing to snap after 3 shots from the air pistol it came bundled with. Due to the "unique" way that the battery is mounted in the sight, it's virtually impossible to fix, even with copious amounts of duct tape.

should have listened to reviews. Very cheap construction, hole for left/right adjustment not lined up, knob for left/right adjustment was glued to body. by the time i fixed it up I didn't care to put it on my gun. Returned it.

I have owned this sight for more than two years. I have used it on a Winchester 500x a Quest rifle and a Crossman Nightstalker. For the Winchester it was a pretty good replacement for the scope, since the scope couldnâ€™t stay in focus. For the Quest it was really just a gimmick due to the fact that the scope on the Quest rifle was very reliable. As for the Crossman Nightstalker it was a must. It has very good visibility even during bright summer days. The battery life on it is spectacular. After owning it and using it constantly I have only had to change the battery once after about eighteen months of use.

Good Product but be Warned
This product has changed slightly and not longer comes with the Weaver mounts. I had one and it got shot and cracked. But overall a good product

Great red dot
This red dot is cheap and durable! it fits dove rails and weaver rails (it comes with a rail adapter for weaver and dove).
I used it on my Sig Sauer sp2022 airsoft and it improves accuracy and makes it easier to aim at things.
The dot is extremely bright and adjustable. (tip: when adjusting dot you will not see it moving but it is adjusting and the dot will not line up in the same place as the the fixed sights but the BB will end up in the same spot.
You will require a pistol with a tactical under barrel rail for the accessory mount for the red dot (if you dont understand what i was just talking about do not buy this product for pistols without looking at the picture)
Cons: the lens is reflective so in bright conditions you can see the box that the laser comes out of.
It comes with 2 CR2023 (DL2023) batteries. To change them you have to take off the reflex sight meaning you have to zero it again.

bright red dot
Durability 1 less just because it's a lot of plastic.

definatly worth 25$
well i was reading reviews on this and all i heard were bad things, so i was planing on getting the tosco red dot, but i like reflex styled red dots. i went to canadian tire, wanted to buy the tosco, but remembered, i only have 55$ and i dont have pellets, so i just bought the crosman one, praying it wouldnt be as bad as every one says, heres everything you really need to know about this sight.
-easy the sight.
-takes one disk styled battery, comes with 2.
-comes with another set of rails to fit on airsoft rails,
-the lens is tinted, so its kinda hard to see things when it gets dark or somethings in the shade.
- the lens is reflective, so you can see glare, and you can see the little box the laser sits in, somtimes you dont even have to turn it on cause you can see the reflection of the little black hole that the laser comes out of.
-somtimes shows a laser line leading up to the dot cause of the reflectiveness.
So overall, the only thing that makes this sight stupid, for me is the lens, if you have a break barrel, dont get this, because of the low quality, the shock of the piston when firing can set the dot off, plus the breaking of the barrel also sets it of, im getting a co2 pellet rifle, i bet theres no prob but the stupid lens.

First red dot sight, dont like it too much
I Bought if for my single shot shotgun, it is a pretty good sight, but you always have to adjust it depending on range, its never completly accurate like in video games, and it uses a 2032 battery that cost 5 bucks, just for a sight that never is completly accurate, the left, right, up, and down are all inverted, if you want it to go up, you twist it the opposite way etc.
but if its ajusted just right, its 8/10

Good Buy with patience!
Good Buy with patience
This Sight is affordable! and very bright!
The worst part about this sight is that you need to center it every time you "hit" it or undo the srcews . It WILL fit any rifle but not a pistol. Its to big for a pistol.
PS your better off saving your money for a REDDOT
