Red dot sight's

Postby REDGUN » Wed May 06, 2009 3:27 pm

Anybody use these? I have a Luepold Gilmore, with a 4 MOA dot, on my 22 pistol and love it. Want to put another on my 45 but thinking of getting a bigger MOA dot. The only scope I have found with a bigger dot that sounds good is the Burris, but I don't know anything about them.

Any suggestions or comments??

I'm not a big fan of red dots. I guess that's mainly because all my pistols have a purpose other than target shooting (my .22 for the trapline and the .45 for carry). If I had an AR or a pistol for target shooting I'd have one. That being said, Burris scopes are a well made scope from what I've heard. I've never used one myself (I stick with Bushnell), but everyone else says they're good and the scopes made by them I've looked through looked clear. If their red dots are as good as their scopes I'd say go for it. :thumbsup:

I have nothing good to say about Burris at all. I hate being the negative nancy for you but I have a Burris Spotting scope=Garbage. My buddie has burris Bino's=Garbage. And I have another friend with a Burris Black Diamond on a custom built .300 ultra mag and its is the worst glass Ive ever seen on a 900 dollar scope. He just switched it out to a Huskemaw.

Aimpoint makes a good one. and Trijicon makes a good one. For budget minded stuff I dont mind Bushnell, or Nikon.

Any idea if these are offered with a bigger than 4 MOA dot? This has been my issue. If I have to stick with the smaller dot, I will get another Luepold Gilmore.

WOW. Never heard of an "amber" dot sight. I have a Cabelas not too far from me. I will go and see what they look like.
