[Amazon Canada] Bushnell Trophy Red Dot TRS-25 3 MOA Scope $96.76 plus get a $40 rebate!

This scope usually sells for around $149~$169 + taxes at most retailers in Canada.
You now save around 50% or more!

Currently you can get it on Amazon Canada for $96.76 + taxes (Free Shipping from amazon.ca / Prime eligible)

Then you get the $40 Trophy Bucks (Canadian) Mail-in Rebate!
"Through October 31, 2017, save $40 on any purchase of a Trophy or Trophy Xtreme product via mail-in rebate."

Getting this (awesome) Red Dot Sight for between $61 and $71 CAD including/after taxes (depending on province) is a phenomenal deal!

This Red Dot sight is for shotguns, rifles, handguns - and is not a cheapo air-soft model.

Enjoy!

This is an insanely good deal if MIR pans out. Ordered 1. Hopefully it'll help me kill many many animals for sport :)

I ordered one a month ago from Amazon and received check in less than 2 weeks. Fastest MIR ever.
This is the new generation of the scope - with white label, not the golden one. The quality is not as good as the old version. You can search in Google for the details. But still a very nice scope, strong build and clear picture.

Just in this is an issue to anyone: The model that Amazon is shipping out is currently with a white logo, not the classic gold one.

Thanks for the info! Hopefully I get the rebate in 2 weeks too (versus the 6-8 weeks indicated)

FWIW, I have used these on CX4's 9mm (great), AR's (great) and 12g shotguns (not so good). The recoil of the shotgun just seems too great for these little guys. But I can't honestly say if it is the internals or the mount, as I could not get it to hold zero on the shotguns, thinking I broke the sight, but then put in on lesser recoiling guns which continued to work fine. So maybe it just can't grab the rail on the shotgun hard enough to deal with the recoil. Just an observation as my Vortex Razor does not have issues...and yes, I realize it is 6x the price :)

Anyone have any good suggestions on how to zero these? I always over-adjust and then never feel confident that I've done it properly.

Easiest way to set zero on any scope is to fire a round into the target whilst aiming at the center. Then put the sight on the center again and adjust the red dot or center of reticle to the first hole you made. Voila, on target!

EDIT: Oh yeah, obviously have to hold the gun still while doing the adjustments, so a friend is helpful :)

You're assuming one has sights to begin with....most ARs don't come with sights and many other rifles as well.
In that case a quick bore sighting procedure would get you on paper then just it's a question of chasing the hits with the red dot while adjusting until one is satisfied with the consistency.
This is the procedure to follow for boresighting a rifle at home.

Yep, was assuming you were already on paper, otherwise not much sense diddling with the knobs. Good point.

Damn, I literally just bought a sightmark red dot off Amazon last week. I thought to myself "I'll never see a red dot sale on rfd"...

Looks like a great deal for this optic.

I ended up buying:

A little more expensive but overall I'm quite happy with the quality.

Simple question. How do you submit a rebate with no receipt? Never ever recieved a receipt from amazon.

Mine worked just fine on my Weatherby TR-459 (6.5lb 12g), I'd suspect it was a clamp to rail issue.

Shoot off a rest, use a posterboard at 25 yards with a mark for a point of aim. Always aim at the same point and chase your hole (or group) (so if you're low and left, move your sight down and left), once that's on, push the distance out farther and repeat.

Or you can just use a bigger piece of paper/posterboard from the dollar store at a closer range :)

Lol. What if they are killing animals to eat? And fyi. This would not be useful for either!
Sure it would, I wouldn't hesitate to use it on deer/bear/grouse/rabbit.

Hot deal, I got mine for $100 a while ago (mines the gold lettering version) and have run it on a few guns (it's currently residing on a 9mm carbine), I'm half tempted to get another for my little badger,
