"Realistic replica 4.9/5 FITS THE ICS L85 SERIES

+ Very sturdy optic which completes the look of my L85 nicely

+ Fits the ICS L85A2 and L86 easily with no wobble and no modification (standard L85 rail - WILL NOT FIT 20mm Weaver) This is achieved by loosening the friction pad on the SUSAT using the thumb screws, removing the carry handle sights, (opening the battery hatch on the gun to do so) and sliding on the SUSAT and tightening the thumb screws wherever the sight feels most comfortable.

+ Comes in a nice box with adjustment hex keys - with foam padding

+ 90% solid metal, everything important is metal, only plastic is the thumb screws and the rubber eye piece

+ Magnification is accurate and sight picture is wide and clear

+ Actually has the Obelisk and its illuminated - works great with and without illumination

- No idea how to take the batteries out - i suspect its a matter of removing the base

- Very close eye relief (can be bad for some)

+ Front glass appears to be thick and is tinted slightly green (front only, does not affect sight picture)

+ Secondary iron sights are sturdy and due to the way in which the optic is aligned, it zeroes to the same place as the obelisk

I honestly think this is the sturdiest sight that i have ever used, and its much better than using the standard carry handle sights that the L85/6 comes standard with - the magnification gives you a nice edge both for accuracy and target acquisition. The SUSAT isn't going to be for everyone, but its a great sight for the L85 series.

"For the money it's a good quality replica. This one features the obelisk-style reticle like the real version of the Susat, but the center of the obelisk reticle is semi-transparent so it doesn't cut into my field of view nearly as much as I had expected. Zeroing was a bit confusing, and you need both a flat head screwdriver and a 12mm wrench to do it. Also, there are two hex screws that hold the scope to the mount which were loose enough to let the scope move a bit side to side. These tightened easily and the scope has been rock solid since. The worst part, and why I docked it one star, is that I needed to file some of the rail clamp in order for the scope to not slide on my ICS L85. Not a huge deal with a dremmel, but kind of a pain. One other knock against it is that the illumination seems a bit bright to me, and even on the lowest setting the whole field of view has a red glow making it hard to see anything in the dark.

Pros:
Solid build, (once the screws are tightened)
Clear optics, especially for the price
Obelisk reticle, with clear(ish) center beam, faithful to the real one
Maintains zero from what I can tell
Completes the look of my L85

Cons:
Needed to file the rail to securely fit the ICS L85
Zeroing is non-intuitive and requires a wrench
Screws/bolts for zeroing strip easily
When illuminated, the whole field of view is red.
