It is through their use and rigorous testing that this sight has hence truly become battle proven. Although the initial, generation 1 version of the sight worked and worked well, Lucid took some of the lessons learned from the HD7 Gen 1 and continually improved to what you see before you today, the Lucid HD7 Gen3. Input from users of various generations of the HD7 was put to use and taken to heart when the engineers were developing the Lucid Gen 3 red dot sight.
Generation 3 Revisions
Although the updates for the generation 3 HD7 red dot are numerous, there are a few key features you may be interested in. The Gen 3 from Lucid includes capped turrets. This ensures that the turrets themselves are better protected. In the case where a normal turret could be stuck, the cap will now take the brunt of the impact, thereby possibly avoiding an expensive repair.
