Versatile…Fast…Easy…and Reliable all describe the 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, and handguns, even on modern muzzleloading big game rifles.
The 1x Tac-Dot measures less than 2 1/2 inches in length, and weighs a mere 2.1 ounces, adding absolutely no discernible weight to whatever gun this sight is mounted on. The 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.
The Tac Dot is not compatible with optics ready pistols. This sight requires a picatinny or weaver rail for mounting.
