Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough adjustment I purchased this Venom two weeks ago and mounted it on a Mod. 41 S&W target pistol. At twenty five yards there was not enough adjustment at 25yds to bring point of impact up to point of aim. About four inches too low for p.o.i. Had to put some shims under the front of the optic to get on target and have some adjustment left over. Can't tell if there is something wrong with my particular optic or it's supposed to be that way. Not happy about the need for shims but other than that I like the clarity. This particular Mod 41 has had different optics on it over the years from early Aimpoint to cheaper units. So I suspect the unit and not the pistol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Venom 3 moa review I bought this for my walther q5. Bolted on with no problems using the doctor plate. Build quality is good. Sighting in was very straight forward. Accuracy was incredible. The RO commented that this combo of walther and vortex sight was more acurate than their open gun. The only thing i would change would be the ability to set an upper and lower threshold for the auto brightness. I really wanted to use this feature, but it seems to default to being too bright even in overcast conditions causing flare and distortion of the dot. This means i need to abandon the auto brightness and manually set for the relevant lighting conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Just For Automatics Looking for a red dot for something other than a sissy automatic? Look no further. I needed a dot for my .357 Mag, and it was forming a habit of breaking inferior products. I bought the Venom in hopes it would stand up to the recoil produced by 16.5 grains of H110 behind a 158 grain bullet (Starline brass and CCI primed if you're wondering). I loaded 100 rounds and headed off to the range. The sight in was quick, and the Venom performed flawlessly. I have put close to 500 of these loads through the gun and the dot has not budged. The combo makes 100 yard shots almost too easy. I would not hesitate to buy another one. Maybe this time for the .44.
