Shot Alignment with a RED DOT

Post by rich.tullo on 10/6/2015, 9:12 am

A lot has been discussed with iron sights but little is discussed with red dots I wonder why. 

I don't know how you can hold better than the 9 ring if your alignment is not set with Iron Sights. 

However no one talks about it with dots?

This is a good subject.  I think of my dot as the front sight and the tube of the reddot as my back sight.  One thing that is a problem for me now is the tube is not clearly defined.  Is this important?  I'm thinking it is.

Read Dr. Wongs article on a cheap dot enhancer. It may help you to see the tube in a more defined way.

I work on my hold by cutting the X ring out of a 50 reduced target(I hope I wrote that clear enough, I couldn't remember the tgt #) So I have a hole a little larger than .45 bullet diameter. I tape that to a light colored wall and try to hold the dot inside the light colored center. It gives me some idea of how tight I am able to hold even though It's not 25 yds away.

Has anyone been able to accomplish Dr. Wong's fix on a Matchdot 2? It doesn't appear it is possible to attach the tube extension to the rear.

The older 30mm tubes will accept he extension on the rear.  But not the newer 30mm tubes.  Using a black tube and adding a silver end ring makes a real nice Wong visible ring.  But there is no guarantee the dot will center when the new rear ring and window are concentric. 

I have since tried marking the rear edge of the tube with a silver metallic Sharpie.  With and without the extension.  So far so good.

Thanks JM for the link.  My problem is my vision and the back of the tube isn't as clear as I would like it to be.

Use a lobster claw rubber band on back of dot tube, 30 mm tube. Tan color, wide helps per Dr Wong. I have a bag full, you need some. They come like 50-100 to a bag.

Terry, what are you going to do with all those lobsters?
