is 1x the same as a T2, Mr. Expert?
Where did I say I was an expert? Oh yeah I didn't but you said you were "no expert". Not an expert and never claimed to be but have hands on with both and one for many years so just giving the experience with both. Do you have either?
And don't own a T2 so can't say but it's the same as some other red dots I have. Actually a little better as the eye piece is bigger so it's larger area to look through.
