I would like to use the type of red dot and/or holographic sights like aimpoint and eotech make. The problem is this stuff is expensive. For one reason because they are made to keep working under conditions I for one will never be using them. And all I want is the specs like parallax free and all the other advantages they offer. So is’nt there any one yet producing something like this; good quality for shure but I do not need to able to dive with these things or anything like that. Let me know. Thank’s.

I think those things are not that accurate?
Is this true?

Ted google aim point replicas. On some other forums some people are saying good things about the replicas. I don’t have any personal experience with the replicas only the real ones so I can’t give you any comparison. Here is a good article on red dot sights. http://demigodllc.com/articles/fighting-carbine-optics-for-the-ar-15/April 4, 2008 at 6:35 am #37126quote SilentS:

I have a bsa red dot which I like really well for numerous reasons. It has been mounted on shotgun, rimfire, air-rifle, pistol. It even held zero on a s&w .357. You don’t say what your intended shooting will be with this sight but I find the type of shooting to be both the biggest advantage and disadvangage of these setups. Mine has a 3moa dot which means the aimpoint about covers the head of a squirrel at 50 yards and the whole chest of a crow at 100yd. Its not a sight for one hole target shooting at 25+yards. It IS excellent for closer ranges, fast target aquisition, moving targets, snap shooting, plinking, easy to teach new shooters with, etc. I find mine ideal for shooting situations within its limitations (no magnification and dot covers too much target at longer range for precision shooting on airgun sized kill zones)April 4, 2008 at 2:36 pm #37137quote shrpshotr28:
