pistol scope

Post by rebs on 1/6/2017, 8:33 am

Can you guys recommend a scope for my Rugar 22/45 ? Something not too expensive but still decent.

I should have said I am looking for a scope with cross hairs. With my astigmatism I have trouble with red dot sights.

I'd probably try and find a 1x Leupold or equivalent. The higher magnification will drive you batty.

Most pistol scopes are 2x or more.  If you think you have a wobble (stealing someone else's line) the 2x will look like trying to thread a needle on a sewing machine while it's running.

Check out the UD Matchdot II it has Two Reticle Patterns other than dots.

I had lenses made for my Rudy Project shooting glasses that turned the dot from a lopsided spider to a nice round dot.  I also wear an EyePal (fixed aperture) on my right lens.

Sightron S33 4reticle.  I just picked one up for 120.00. They have 4 different reticles. Dot, Circle with dot, cross and cross with circle. I use the dot but the other choices are there.

Astigmatism

  Trouble seeing the dot is how many shooters realize it's time for a new prescription.  I'm curious about why you don't correct the astigmatism.

My prescription is 3 months old and glasses are the same. How can the astigmatism be corrected ?

It's my understanding astigmatism can drift around (just how much and when may be a discussion for your eye doctor). 

Get some round lens John Lennon type glasses to your Rx so you can rotate the lenses and print and astigmatism chart to tune them in yourself when you need to.  It may also be helpful to +.75/+1.0 diopter to your distance prescription for pistol distances.

Correcting Astigmatism

Post by Richard Ashmore on 1/6/2017, 12:08 pm

With the correct axis in your prescription.
"In addition to the spherical lens power used to correct nearsightedness or farsightedness, astigmatism requires an additional "cylinder" lens power to correct the difference between the powers of the two principal meridians of the eye.
So an eyeglasses prescription for the correction of myopic astigmatism, for example, could look like this: -2.50 -1.00 x 90.

  • The first number (-2.50) is the sphere power (in diopters) for the correction of myopia in the flatter (less nearsighted) principal meridian of the eye.

  • The second number (-1.00) is the cylinder power for the additional myopia correction required for the more curved principal meridian. In this case, the total correction required for this meridian is -3.50 D (-2.50 + -1.00 = -3.50 D).

  • The third number (90) is called the axis of astigmatism. This is the location (in degrees) of the flatter principal meridian, on a 180-degree rotary scale where 90 degrees designates the vertical meridian of the eye, and 180 degrees designates the horizontal meridian."


I take an ultradot with me to my annual eye exam to make sure the axis is optimal.

Since you mention in-expensive and nice I would suggest that you look into (pun intended) a Tasco Pro. They quit making them awhile back but they show up on E-bay often. They are the ONLY Tasco product that I would ever buy. 30mm with fine cross hairs and a 1 min dot. I regret that I sold my first one with a pistol and recently picked up another. I use it to test different ammo in different pistols so it gets moved around a lot. They can be found for 80-150.00. None on E-bay right now but worth a look.

Astigmatism and a red dot has little to do with your glasses. Sometimes the dot looks great and other times it is ill-defined. 

An aperture will work I used to make them out of sink washers. 

However, as long as the dt does not cover up the whole Bullseye or cleaved then focus on the target and alignment  and you see the dot shape matter less.

I shoot the 1X and 2X Burris scopes made for Gil Hebard just for bullseye shooters.

That was a good price they were asking. It looks well used but the lenses look clear.
