Reflex sights on and AR

I bought a SightMark reflex (not red dot) sight at Cabelas a while back for my Colt M-4 .22. This is the first reflex sight I've had. It has 5 brightness settings for the aiming spot, all noticeably brighter than the last. On the gun, in the house, any of the brightness settings were perfectly visible. However when I took it to the range, in broad daylight but under a roof cover, the aiming spot was completely invisible even at the brightest setting. With close inspection you could see that it was actually there but completely useless for aiming. I have returned it to the store but I got to wondering if this was normal? Doesn't seem like it should be but I've never had one before?

With optics you get what you pay for, the Sightmark reflex is very inexpensive the better reflex sights are 5-10 times the price, the only difference between the two brands is the more expensive sights actually work!
