    For a long time I couldn't make myself buy a cheap red dot, even for a .22.



    I've since purchased one Primary Arms red dot for my son's Savage Rascal. I may even get a RMR knock off and put the Aimpoint Micro I have on my Ruger on something else.
    Medium speed. Moderate drag.

    I was asked to do a review of this rds by the company Tacticon Armament. I found it to be well made and a great inexpensive sight. I was offered the sight for 75% off to do my testing. That was around a year ago. They fixed the issues and brought out a much better version of it. It is similar to a TRS25.

    This company is owned by a Combat veteran. They have excellent customer service.

    On Amazon as well.

    I have 3 inexpensive .22LR pistols I can experiment with.
    I didn't want to pay for 100% dependability, that would be better than how the guns shoot, being .22LR.
    Glad to hear the I did OK with the Bushnell TRS-25.

    I was drawn to the "Toyota Corolla" version
    ($49) DAGGER DEFENSE DDHB RED DOT REFLEX SIGHT
    Best Budget Option

    MATERIAL: Aircraft grade aluminum
    TYPE: Reflex
    RETICLE: Red and green, 1-4 MOA
    WEIGHT: 10.26 oz

    It has heft to it, and the dials on it are firm, not loosey-goosey.
    Both Red & Green with 4 different reticles in each color with adjustments for brighter/larger dot.
    I also liked that it was a Veteran owned business.

    Finally was able to make it to the range to dial in the Dagger defense red dot.
    Here are pics at 30', which accuracy got better as I was dialing it in.
    45' didn't do as well and perhaps that is the gun or me & my eyes, or perhaps I don't have it dialed in sharp enough yet.

    Using the Dagger Defense red dot again on the Ruger Mark 3.
    Used 3 different brands of ammo.
    Shot 15', 20' 30' & 45'.
    I couldn't even see the #10 red target on the head of the torso, so I ended up shooting high.
    I was just hoping it was beneath my red dot.

    That "article" is absolutely a scam. The "author" picks a variety of red dots from Amazon that have good reviews (many probably from free product evaluations, airsofters etc.) And then just makes a list of refferal links. Each time some chump reads the article clicks a link and buys a sight, he gets a few cents. He mostly picks cheap ones, so the average reader thinks "wow only $30 and it has a 5 star review!"

    The Bushnell TRS-25 is a known good economical red dot.
    It was the first new red dot I bought and used for over a year now on three different guns.

    The Primary Arms red dot is one a friend has used for months now w/o complaint.
    My first red dot was a Primary Arms that came with a SW Victory I bought.
    The member I bought it from used it for Steel Matches.
    It's on its 3rd owner now.

    I recently bought and have been using the Dagger Defense red dot and like it more than my Bushnell TRS-25 b/c it has green as well as a red choice of a dot, plus it has 4 choices of reticles to use which both "upgrades" are fun to use.

    You could be absolutely correct in your observation.
    Time will tell if these hold up or fold up as the months/years go by.
    Perhaps my experience has just been lucky.
    I'm shooting only .22LR with my red dots, so they don't get much punishment, or that much use in general anyway b/c of many other guns I shoot with scopes or just using iron sights.

    How about we lay off the chinese stuff?

    When it comes to red dots, Aimpoint and Trijicon should be the first choices. If that's too expensive for you, then iron sights are a great alternative as you save up.

    Do not interrupt your enemy while they are making a mistake.
