Ozark Armament Rhino Review and breakdown

The Ozark Armament Rhino is quite bulky judging from the size and the incorporated features; the sight’s battery is loaded from the side, and on the rear and front end of the tunnel vision users have been provided with flip caps for use in protecting the unit in storage and during transportation. Brightness levels are can be tweaked from the side and we must say the dot intensity is quite impressive.

The same brightness levels will navigate the user to the green dot; remember that the sight offers both the red and green dot. And from the reviews, we have determined that both the dots are not entirely perfect as they seem to have some other much smaller dots on the side which makes them imperfect.

The elevation knob is conveniently located at the top while the windage knob at the side, so, while everything seems to be in place, there is a concern on the flip-up caps because apart from making the sight look bulky, they are not very cooperative, if the user was to use both eyes.

Remember that the caps remain open during use which can be a disadvantage if you are trying to camouflage yourself and have to move or raise your head past the flip caps, to assess the situation surrounding your target.

What we liked;

  • The optic sight holds zero perfectly
  • Both the red and green dot come with up to five brightness settings
  • The incorporated glass is clear
  • The flip-up covers are stable and will not come out during transit
  • Offer the best field of view in any situation

What we didn’t like;

  • The sight is not durable for the long term
  • Users experience issues with mounting

Ozark Armament Rhino features

Optical performance

The large size of the Ozark Armament Rhino accounts for the large objective lens diameter measuring up to 28mm, the above feature allows enough light into the scope, which consequently encourages the provision of clear and high-resolution images.

One of the reasons why many people prefer to use the red dot sight and not the iron sights is because of their accuracy and speed. Red dot sights enable a shooter to pin their target faster and accurately and if it is a 4 MOA such as the Ozark Armament Rhino then they will be able to swiftly cover about 4 inches at 100 yards and 2 inches at 50 yards.

The sight is additionally, parallax-free, complete with an enhanced field of view; the latter is normally affected by the magnification. So, if a sights magnification is higher then you can expect the field of view to reduce, but for the Ozark armament, it doesn’t have magnification meaning that shooters will be able to acquire their targets rapidly at closer ranges; the above works best when the potential target is on the move.

Build and Design

Most of the sights from Ozark are backed by a lifetime guarantee, simply because they are durable, and that is the case with the Ozark Armament Rhino. When put through the water bottle torture test, the Ozark Armament Rhino performed well, the unit is additionally made with durable aluminum material, complete with a stealthy matte black finish thus sturdy and durable to say the least.

From the outside, you will notice that there are minimal movable parts, which helps keep dirt and dust from interfering with the electronics and internal components of the optical sight. The above features make the optical sight adaptable for use in dynamic environments, and temperatures.

From the outlook, you will also notice that the incorporated mount extends and has secured the sight a few inches high from the rail. The mount is known as a cantilever mount and fits a 20mm rail, and since it is already fitted, installation is easy.

Submersion

The Ozark Armament Rhino is waterproof but we haven’t been given its water resistance rating, so what we are sure of is that you can use it in humid areas, or under light showers without worrying about water getting into the sight. Submergibility is a quality that many red dots possess, and which makes the unit attractive to different categories of users, from hunters to the law enforcers.

Lack of this important quality only makes the sight limited when it comes to use, and in the process, the category of users also shrinks.

Brightness settings

If you plan to use your optical sight under bright daylight then it must come equipped with either the manual or automatic settings, for night vision there are dedicated settings meant for this particular purpose and which you must consider if you have a night vision device.

The Armament Rhino has, therefore, incorporated up to five different brightness settings used with both the red and green dot. With this option, users will be able to accurately obtain their target either during the daytime, dusk, dawn, or at night. If you are, therefore, looking for an optical sight that can be used with a night vision device, this is it.

Battery life and accuracy

With the promise of improving the current battery life incorporated in the Ozark Armament Rhino, users will still be able to enjoy a battery life of about 3,000hrs on medium brightness settings. And apart from the high performing battery, sighting has been simplified and you can be sure of maintaining zero through the thousands of rounds.

Who is it best suited for?
