  • Think I found a good red/green dot sight at very affordable prices

    Just got two of these in, They appear to be ruggedly made. Directions say it is a 4 MOA dot but appears smaller to me???? Has lens covers and 2000 hour battery life in first position continuous on. Takes 2032 batt that does not come with scope but I got two for less than $19.00 each. Excellent clarity at longer range. Can't buy iron sights for that. I am gonna put one on my vehicle AR. Thinking of ordering a couple more.

      I don't know what you're requirements are, but I wouldn't want to use something like that in a life or death situation.

      Some red dots sights can change their point of impact by up to 10 or 15 MOA due to something as simple as humidity or temperature change.
      Repeated recoil as well as other factors come into play as well.

      I guess if you're shooting paintball or a bb gun or something at 25 yards then you don't need anything high quality.

        I tried a Red Dot but I just could not get used to it. I can't get a real small grouping, if the dot covers the bullseye. I took it off and mounted it on the home defense shotgun. It is mounted high enough to use the sights if needed. Granted they do allow very fast target acquisition (big targets) but it would be hard to hit a squirrel at 50 yards. JM2c

          I’ve been moving away from red dots. I’ve been putting LPVO scopes on most of my guns, 1-6 and 1-8 mostly. I kept two RDS on rifles, an Aimpoint and a Holosun.

          the Aimpoint is on my 5.56 AR, the Holosun on my 300 blackout pistol. The holosun has been surprisingly reliable for a lower cost optic.

          if you’re dead set on a dot, Leupold offers some LPVOs with their fire dot.

          don’t go cheap on any rifle you might use for defense.

            I have an EOTech, it's holographic and has a 1 MOA dot circled by a 68 MOA ring with a 3X magnifier.

            I have a BSA mounted on a Diana L8 magnum as it's spring powered; same as all springers, its recoil is back and forth. It is very hard on conventional rifle scopes. The BSA has literally survived hundreds of shots. The combination holds less than dime sized group at 15 yards off bags.

            This site explains the difference: https://scopeshq.com/holographic-sig...he-difference/

            My explanation is the EOTech projects its reticle onto the target and the red dot doesn't.

            BTW, both the EOTech and the LP8 are 6 or more years old and prices have seriously (ridiculously) increased.

              Another good choice are the prismatic sights - primary arms sells a few that are very well made. I'm going to swap out the holosun that is on my .300 black out pistol for one with a reticle made for the round.

                  The Holosun is a dot, the primary arms one is a horse shoe / chrevron set up with marks for other distances.

                    The chevron is intriguing as its shape ^ doesn't obscure the target as a couple of MOA dot size would hinder small groups.

                    I have a Primary Arms SLx 4-14x44mm FFP. For the money, it is a decent optic. It will shoot a box, the glass is crisp with no distortion at the edges.
                    Based on it's the only PA scope I own, I can't say all of them are as good. Quality can't be based on a sample of one.. OTOH. it's good enough to buy another.
