Anybody have any experience with these red dot sights? I have looked at them in catalogs, but not had the chance to try one. I like open sights usually. Would these be more or less accurate?

A good iron sight shooter can be very accurate.So can a red dot.I have used them on rifle and pistol.On the rifle I have used them as both a scout and regular mount.They are very versatil.you can pick up a Tasco accudot 30mm for under 75.00 including tax.Id give one a try.

My experience is that they are quicker on target but not as accurate. The ones I have tend to obscure the target at longer distances.

You will really appreciate a red dot scope during dark conditions when you can no longer see your sights. During daylight, I can be just as accurate with iron sights, but not as fast. I can recommend the Aimpoint Comp M. It is a great scope. Much more durable than anything else I have seen.

I forgot.Make shure you get one with a 3 minute dot the others cover too much up.

I use the tasco propoint on my FAL and it is quite accurate and fast on target aquisition. The only drawback is that it will drain a battery quickly even when shut off so carry several extra sets or get a scope that uses a fiberoptic and tritium sight combo so no batteries are needed. idaho-ar15

Here's a Oko for $125 I'm highly considering. [img]http://www.castle-arms.com/accessories/oko.jpg[/img] I would consider a Tasco, but keep getting picked on for having a Tasco scope, and they're chi-com not Taiwanese.

I have a Tasco Acudot on my Ruger .22 pistol and can honestly say that it was one of the best investments I've made.

Turn the power down on that red dot till it is still visible but you can see your target through it. You will start hitting even with a 5 minute of angle dot because it is more like the principle used on a peep. The eye will naturally center the target in the circle. Try it.
