Ultradot Rubber Eyepiece - Worth It?

Post by JayhawkNavy02 on 5/14/2016, 12:04 am

Fired up my matchdot II on my wad gun.  Works great.  Didn't use the lens hood the first outing, and with Bullseye, won't make that mistake again, ever.

I noticed with the Matchdot that you don't get the rear rubber eyepiece, but Ultradot sells them for $9.00.  Is this a good addition to help when shooting outdoors or a waste of money.


Thanks,
Derek

I don't think they make an eyepiece for the 30mm. I could be wrong. That's happened once before.

I only saw 1" or the 25mm like you mentioned.  Didn't know if my google-fu was weak.  Looks like no eyepiece for the 30 then.

Does it help?

Do they help? Yes. A lot. Not necessarily like you were thinking. They offer a little anti-glare and offer a lot of anti-oil protection. I like a well oiled 1911. Without the eyepiece I always seem to throw oil from my hammer onto the rear lens. They do a good job of keeping the oil down. They also aid in the alignment of the pistol to reduce parallax. Just my .02 worth.

On my way to a match but search eBay for microscope eye cups. Cheap and they fit perfectly. If I remember later, I'll find it and post.

Thanks Mike & Len,

Found the eBay eye cups.   About $7 shipped.  

I think that should help with the oil mess and provide a small amount of other benefits.  Well worth the $7.00

This is spot on to why I use them on all three of my 1" UD's.

My UD Micro 28mm came with a rubber eyepiece.  It sits in the box.  Now I think I'll try it for the antiglare  function, although the range I use has a rear enclosure so glare isn't an issue there but firing in my buddie's gravel pit may be an issue.
