Dot question

Post by kjanracing on 4/28/2015, 10:01 pm

good evening.  I have a Nelson conversion coming and also ordered an Ultradot LT to go with it.  Opinions on the LT?  I thought to just pay the big bucks once.  Is that a good choice for BE?  Should I look at something else?  Thanks!   Kurt

I have the L/T the Micro and the Matchdot II. I have tried them all with my Nelson. I prefer the Matchdot II with the adjustable dot size and easy "zero" elevation knob.

But I am using the Micro due to some wrist issues - every oz. matters. The L/T ended up on my 52-2.

I have the match dot, got it because it was available from a club member cheap. I never use the larger dots but it is a good scope. I just ordered a Precision Arms Micro red dot made by Holosun from Joe Chambers. Haven't got it yet but others at my club like it and its less than $200 with shipping. I checked a club members scope and can not see much parallax. Dot stayed well in the X ring at 50 yards no matter where I moved my eye. The 2moa dot is a plus, I don't like big dots. Give Joe Chambers a call, I'm sure he and give you better details than I can.

I have an L/T mounted on a 22 for several years:
 
Pros
- Maintains zero
- Lightweight
- Long battery life, at least a year
- Battery is easy to change
- Works well indoors
 
Cons
- Pain to zero as it needs a disk to be inserted over an allen (hex) wrench
- No adjustment clicks, you align the marks on the disk with a mark on the scope..
- Impossible to adjust on the fly between long/short line.
- No brightness adjustment
- Difficult to use in the rain
- Dot can be difficult to see in bright sun (no shade tube or polarizing filter option)

I also own a Matchdot, and would not hesitate to purchase another one. Although I would go for a ver II.

Make sure you get one of the new L/T's (2.0?)  Allen key adjustable, 10 selectable brightness levels, elev and windage markings and detents, brightness memory when you turn it on, etc.  Much better than the original, but still a problem in the rain.....
