I have a red dot and was thinking about trying it as a ocular sight. Can I not just leave the cap on the front and use it as such? It seems t to me that that would take care of any glare issues. AS for the kit it looks cool but I prefer function over form. If it doesn't make it work better I'll pass. As I think most of this crowd has mentioned. I gie them props for trying somethign new for them.
