Found the DBPower BCE0137 Red Dot Sight for less than $20 with free shipping. It had five star reviews from eleven reviewers. Many reviewers had mounted this sight on 5.56 M4 and were quite pleased with its performance.
It just seems that there is no way to go wrong with this inexpensive scope on an airsoft gun. In this article, we will examine this scope for airsoft.
The BPower BCE0137 Red Dot Scope comes in a nicely designed box (see photo below). It has photos of the woods, animals, and mountains, giving you the perception of a great hunting tool.
The package contains the red dot scope, front and rear protective lens caps, a cleaning cloth, an instruction sheet, a CR2032 battery, and a hex wrench.
The protective lens caps are made out of plastic. Unfortunately, they are not transparent, so you can use them to protect the scope in an airsoft game. So you'll have to protect the scope yourself, as explained in the "Protecting the Optical Sight on Airsoft Guns" article.
Much like many other red dot sights on the market, the DBPower BCE0137 Red Dot Scope uses a single 2032 button cell battery for power. And like many other red dot sights, the button cell is under an screw cap on the rheostat at the top of the scope.
The DBPower BCE0137 Red Dot Sight provide both elevation and windage adjustments. When you rotate the adjustment dials, they provide positive clicks. The elevation adjustment is under the black cap at the top of the scope (see photo below). When you rotate the adjustment screw in the "up" direction, it moves your [to be filled in] upward in the scope.
The windage adjustment is under the black cap on the left side of the scope (see photo below). When you rotate the adjustment screw in the "left" direction, it moves [to be filled in] toward the left within the scope.
The elevation and windage adjustment caps have rubber seals. Therefore, you want to screw the caps on just tight enough to seal, but not tight enough to squeeze the rubber o-rings out of place.
