Versatile...Simple...Easy...and Reliable all describe the new TAC-DOT reflex type red-dot sight from Hi-Lux Optics. Here is a sight that is right at home on a variety of firearms - AR style rifles, most any big game rifle, shotguns, handguns, even on modern muzzleloading big game rifles.
The 1x TAC-DOT measures just 2.5 inches in length, and weighs a mere 2.1 ounces, adding absolutely no discernible weight to whatever gun this sight is mounted on. Simple integral clamp type mount allows this sight to be locked onto a picatinny rail/base or Weaver style base in just seconds, and the single stout Allen head torque mounting screw can be cinched tight for rock solid mounting of the TAC-DOT sight. This sight is waterproof for use in any weather, and its shockproof construction can take on just about any environment and stand up to years of recoil.
Sighting the TAC-DOT is easy, with windage and elevation screw adjustments that can be accessed without having to remove caps. The heads of these adjustment screws are recessed slightly, to prevent bumping or rubbing them against something that could change alignment. The 1x magnification eliminates parallax problems, plus there's no need to focus, and the eye relief is somewhat unlimited allowing this sight to be used whether it's mounted just 5 inches from the shooter's eye or mounted on a handgun held out 18 to 20 inches from the eye.
With just a little practice, target acquisition can be extremely fast, and once the sight alignment has been tweaked, the 4 MOA red dot reticle does not have to be perfectly centered in the lens. The firearm is sighted to hit where the dot is on the target...whether the dot is a little high...low...right...or left of center in the lens when getting on the target quickly. Great for hunting running game and taking a quick, on target, shot.
TAC-DOT red dot sights feature fully multi-coated optics for maximum light transmission. The brightness of the dot automatically adjusts to the brightness or dimness of the ambient light. Comes with protective cover.
