Anyone See Any Docter Optic Sights Used???

Post by GrumpyOldMan on Thu Dec 19, 2013 6:25 pm

First saw these years ago and thought they were pretty neat.

But I also notice now that I think about it, have never seen nor heard of them being used in BE.

Too expensive for what you get? Or something else???

Do you have a link for the sight that you are talking about?

Try the US distributor's site here: http://www.docterusa.com/_mgxroot/page_10767.html

It's kinda like a C-More made smaller and turned backwards. I've seen them just mounted in the rear sight notch.

I use a Fast Fire II and several of my friends use the Ultradot L/T on their Model 52's

There were several Reflex style Red Dots at Perry on my relays.  They typically don't have the adjustments of the tube style (the L/T just added brightness and indexed windage & elevation - dot size is fixed) but once set they work well. 

If you are looking for a mount for one try BME-mounts

The Docter looks just like Burris' FastFire II.  I also used the FastFire II and didn't like that it doesn't have repeatable windage and elevation adjustments.  If you look at the Burris FastFire III, that has good elevation and windage with clicks as well as different brightness.  I think you can get them cheaper on E-bay.

I liked mine.  It was lightweight and I mounted it in my rear sight dovetail with no drilling or change of recoil spring.  The battery lasted FOREVER.

I think the FastFire III would make an effective bullseye sight.

We tried those back when they came out, they had issues, auto bright just didnt cut it in bright sunlight, no easy way to adjust elevation and windage, had to use a small allen wrench and no click adjustments so you couldn't really be sure you moved the same each time. Ultradot is way better and costs less.

The FastFire 3 has click elevation and windage without allen wrenches and different brightness settings.
