    I recently got this red dot sight as part of a trade. I'm unsure of the brand or model since it has very few markings. I've included pictures of the only three markings on the optic just in case that helps anyone. Maybe you guys can help. As you can see in the pictures below, the front lens is crooked and the ring inside that holds the laser is out of place. I've tried both the adjustment knobs and had no luck. I've also googled the problem to no end but can't even find any disassembly information, let alone a solution to my problem. Any info on disassembly or solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    there really is no disassembly of that you can really do. Its a cheap knockoff so repair is limited. it looks as though that lens that is crooked may have been glued back in but that could just be the picture as well. From what it looks like your SOL. sorry to say that but I havnt been able to disassemble my friends sights that are china clones.

    You can't really take a red dot apart. The tube isn't filled with normal air, but pure nitrogen. There's too much moisture in air and it would fog up every time it went through a moderate temperature change. If you pop a lens off, you're creaking that seal and ruining the dot. Long story short, the thing is dead and you need a new optic.

    This probably doesn't help but it's a leapers quick aim sight.

    Yep. Leapers/UTG is an american owned company (based in Michigan) that makes and buys everything in/from China.
