  1. Jason Bonney

    This company has hands down the best warranty out, some of the best customer service and the product quality is hard to beat and at half the price of other brands…do yourself a favor and get you one!

  2. Aaron and Amy

    My wife and I are pro staffers for Riton. We use Riton on all our hunting rifles and I use the x1 tacticXon my shotgun. Shooting my 12 gauge in predator tournaments pays off with the 1 Tactix on top. I get on target quick and make fast shots when hunting tournaments. I recommend the 1 Tactix for shotgunning.

  3. Lauren

    Lightweight, rugged and easy to quickly spot the red dot, this optic is my absolute favorite! I have the ARD mounted on a lightweight 16″ AR-15 and my primary use is for 2-gun competitions.

    I really like the minimalist design of this optic as some competitors have a similar red dot with a much bulkier appearance and a much higher price tag. The ARD won’t slow you down or hold you back! This red dot is also fog proof and waterproof! Can I just say WOW?!

    I highly recommend the ARD to all levels of hunters, competitive shooters and your every day shooting range enthusiasts.

  4. Albert Seybold (verified owner)

    This little guy offers a lot for little out of pocket. Extremely clear glass, qd lower 1/3 co witness mount, and all the features of an optic that would sell for double the price. Over 1k rounds through my 11.5″ ar pistol and I have not had to do any rezeroing or adjusting even after removal and it install. This is the best entry level red dot have ever used bar none.

  5. Joseph Smith

    I like the direction of this optic. But the biggest problem I have is the brightness on it isn’t very good! I would recommend spending the extra few bucks and get the X3 Ard!

  6. Dan S Smith

    Great Little Red Dot! Super easy to install and use. Comes with a two mounts a high and a low. Super Easy to zero and find the dot in bright sunny day. Glass is very clear, no blowout from the dot as well which you get from most I have ran into. I would definitely  recommend this to everyone looking for great price point red dot.
