Red Dot Reflex Sights

Post by Sporty » Thu Nov 01, 2018 5:29 am

I found an inexpensive reflex sight that works well at a single distance. The one I have has a very course adjustment for windage and elevation and has no graduations for zeroing different distances. Is there a reflex sight that has a fine 1/4" MOA elevation adjustment and is repeatable at different distances?

I don't know the specifics of many red-dots but I do know they are notorious for having serious parallax issues. The higher end red-dots that may have 1/4 MOA adjustments and good repeatability will be in the upper hundreds of dollars, easily the price of a good scope.

Lastly, red-dots are not very appropriate for silhouette so make sure you're going down that road for the right reasons.

Good luck.
