The Ozark Armament Rhino red dot sight is one of the most popular models currently available on the market, and it’s easy to see why. This model comes at a great price, it can co-witness your AR’s stock iron sights, and it offers 5 brightness intensity settings that will allow you to use the sight in all kinds of light conditions.
One of the advantages of using this model is that it comes with a 4 MOA reticle that can be colored both red and green. This feature makes the sight more versatile than other models, and it increases the dot’s visibility in different scenarios and environments, improving your target acquisition time and precision in the process.
Another advantage is that this model comes with 5 brightness intensity settings. This will allow you to change the brightness as you pass from a shaded environment to a bright one or the other way around, to make sure the red/green dot is clear and crisp.
Unlike other red dot sights in this price range, the Rhino does not have color coated lenses. While the coating ensures the lenses stay clear and provide a good medium on which to observe the red dot, the color of the coating can sometimes throw the shooter off their game. This model comes with clear lenses that will not distort the red or green dot in any way. You will always have a clear view of the red dot, and implicitly, the target, so you should experience an increase in your accuracy and precision once you start using this sight.
The Rhino red dot sight comes with its own mounting platform that’s compatible with the Picatinny rails used on the AR15. The mounting platform is easy to install on the rail, and it won’t take up a too much real estate, leaving plenty of room for other accessories as well. Not only that, but the combined height of the mounting platform and the sight make the Rhino a perfect choice for those who are looking for a unit that can co-witness the stock iron sights of the AR. Co-witnessing the iron sights will give you the possibility of using the iron sights if the battery-operated red dot sight runs out of power.
As far as the battery is concerned, this model uses a single CR2032 battery as a power source. A single battery should last for a long time, and changing it is not as troublesome as it is with other red dot sights.
This unit has a rugged steel construction that will withstand everything you throw at it. The sight is durable, so not only will it withstand the AR’s powerful recoil, but it will do it without loosening a screw or losing it’s zero. The lens caps are made out of durable plastic, and they will protect the lenses against scratches and abrasions that might otherwise damage the sight permanently.
A great thing about this model is that it comes with a 1-year no questions asked manufacturer warranty. If you notice something is amiss with the sight during the first year of use, you can contact the manufacturer and demand a replacement or a refund. And the best thing is, the manufacturer actually respects the warranty without asking any questions and without soliciting unforeseen or hidden fees. This is a great customer service policy, and it serves as a proof of the manufacturer’s trust in this product.
Even though this model works well and it comes at a great price, you might still be unlucky enough to receive a model that comes with a red dot that glares or a defective mounting platform. If this is the case, contact the manufacturer’s customer service and use the warranty without looking back. You will either receive a replacement or a refund for your troubles.
The Rhino red and green dot sight is a great model that comes at a decent price. Thanks to its co-witness abilities and the clean reticle it uses, this model is suitable for both experienced and beginner shooters.
