I know they used to sell them under Millett and the same exact model was bought and now sold by Bushnell.  I've narrowed down my red dot choice between the zoomdot and an aimpoint comp M3.  The thing i like about the zoomdot is that i can adjust the dot size up to 10 moa or down to 1 moa which is nice feature, also the brightness auto adjusts which is nice and the battery life is 1000-10,000 hours.  It automatically shutsdown when you close the caps and it also has a powersave model where if you leave it on after 2 hours and are not using it it will somehow sense the position of the gun and shut off.  I'm wondering if the Zoomdot will work with nightvision, if so i'm definately getting it over the Aimpoint.  I saw a flier from Millett that was from 2009 that had some of the following specs on it

 
recoil tested on .500 s&w
auto adjust brightness
dot size adjustable from 1 to 10 moa
purchased by U.S. army and bidded for replacing the Aimpoint CompM4
soldiers using in Iraq and Afhghanistan
Fog proof
waterproof to 300'
power save mode
auto shut off mode when caps are closed
ran over by a truck and still worked, tested for ruggedness
 
for under $300 if it does what they say it does it's well worth the money,

looks like a good scope, what do you guys think?  Has anyone used this?
 
My big question is if it will work with nightvision or not, in case in the future i wanna do nighttime hunting i don't want to have to buy a new red dot, if thats the case i'll stick with the Aimpoint M3

Did you ever pick up the Zoom Dot? If so I would love to hear what you think. I've been interested in this thing for a couple years but cant seem to find too many comments. Anyone else have any thing to say about it?

I sent you a PM, with more detailed explanation.  I don't think that SWFA carries them anymore, but they carry the heavy duty mount and the 2 piece extender it hink, and the lens cap probably too.  They should carry it, this thing is really high quality for the price, it can do anything an aimpoint can do, and seems equally tough, only difference is the brand name and the night vision settings on some of the other ones.

I have a ZoomDot and like it quite a bit.  Mine is from the very first batch of the ZoomDots made and it held up like a champ.

One thing to note though is that since Bushnell bought out Millett, the production moved from the US to Mexico.  I am not sure if that has any effect on quality.
