Saw a guy at the range today and he had a small tasco red dot scope that was illuminated and he could change the intensity.  He let me shoot it a few times.  I kept both eyes open and i really was impressed with it.

What is the name (type) of this scope.  What are some of the good ones that are made?

Manufacturers?

Keep in mind that i have a colt preban carbine
(car 15).

Thanks.......

It might be a Tasco Accu-Dot. I have one that I use for close in work on my Bushy. So for it's been pretty durable and it hold zero. Best of all I bought it off a friend for $20.

Now that Tasco has gone belly up there are some great deals on these.  I just got two in the mail today from Natchez Shooters Supply for $25 each.  The warranty is not worth anything, but the one I bought 2 years ago is still going strong, and for $25 who cares?  They come with a sunshade, rings, and an extra battery.  

By the way, I think trijicon or somebody else makes a sight with just a red dot in  a black field.  If you view it with both eyes open your brain superimposes the dot on the target seen with the other eye.  I think it is called the OEG or "occluded eye gunsight".  Has anyone ever tried this with the lens cap for the aimpoint on the objective end?  Does it work?

Thanks for the replies.  I was really impressed with that scope.  I have some silly questions reguarding them though......

I have havent ever looked through one befor.  Its cool.  Is that scope considered "durable"?

I would like to have something useful up to 300 yards.

"red dot scopes for dummies" is what i should have named this post.  Cause its obvious i dont know shit about 'em.

Tasco, bushnell, leupold, simmons??????

Yeah, i also intend to mount it on top of the handle  (A2).


Thanks again for the help.

I would like to have something useful up to 300 yards.Won't do it, the dot will be too large.

Tasco, bushnell, leupold, simmons??????Leupold-Gilmore, they are still around and well worth the price.

Yeah, i also intend to mount it on top of the handle  (A2).Not a problem


Thanks again for the help.





Email me if you have any questions about pricing on various models, I may not stock them all but I do have access to most and will give you a baseline price even if you're not planning on ordering from me.
