What is a Red Dot Sight

A red dot sight is a type of rifle, shotgun, or handgun sight that uses a red dot either projected directly on the target or at an image of the target in order to allow the shooter to quickly and easily take aim at any target. Red dot sights are commonly used during sport or competition shooting, hunting, military, and law enforcement situations. Because these sights allow the shooter to keep both eyes open while quickly aiming at any target, red dot sights are ideal for all types of close and medium range shooting. The following are the main types of discount red dot sights that are available from Superior Outdoorsman.

Reflex Red Dot Sight

Reflex red dot sights use a system of lenses including a partially reflective objective lens that allows the shooter to see an image of the target and a bright LED light reticle displayed in the ocular lens. These red dot sights can be used with either one eye open or two-eyed aiming making them flexible and simple to use. A downside to this design is that the conventional reflex red dot sight gives an angled reflection when the dot is not centered on the lens. As a result of this, the point of aim and the point of impact will only be the same when the dot is perfectly centered on the lens.

However, Aimpoint red dot sights use advanced dual objective lens technology that eliminates this parallax problem. Because of the light refraction property that exists with this Aimpoint double lens, the point of aim and impact are always consistent regardless of where on the lens the red dot appears. Therefore, Aimpoint red dot sights offer quick and easy aiming, which is ideal for a number of situations.

Holographic Red Dot Sight

Holographic red dot sights use a hologram to project the image of a reticle or red dot directly onto a holographic image of the target. Unlike some reflex red dot sights, these sights are parallax free. Therefore, they are accurate and effective at any angle, not only when the red dot is lined up in the center of the image. One popular brand of holographic red dot sight that you can buy from Superior Outdoorsman is the EOTech holographic red dot sights. These sights can be used for close to medium range hunting, competition shooting, and military or law enforcement operations. A main downside to holographic red dot sights is that they use a powerful laser and complex holographic technology, which requires a significant amount of energy to operate. Therefore, these sights have a relatively short battery life compared to many other types of sights.

Red Dot Laser Sight

Red dot laser sights project a red laser dot directly onto the target. The most popular red dot laser sights are Crimson trace laser sights, which are available from Superior Outdoorsman at discount prices. A benefit of these sights is that they are the simplest to use providing point and shoot capability with superior accuracy. A main downside of red dot laser sights is that they eliminate the secrecy that is possible with other types of scopes or sights because they physically project a bright laser light onto the target. Therefore, your target can see that you have them in your sights. Because of this red dot laser sights cannot be used in some types of tactical, military, and law enforcement situations.
