Bought this little red dot on a whim for less than $20.00. Thought I'd try it out.

I sighted it to be just about where the fixed sights line up and am hoping to get some range time in this weekend to give it a go. Now I need a different holster. This is worse than owning a Harley. :machinegun

Red dot on the wall of a very bright room. It is intense. :eek:

Okay, we need the particulars on this red dot. Where did you get it? What is it called?

I found it on Amazon. There were several different kinds available so I'm not sure why I bought this one but glad I did.

Ultimate Arms Gear Tactical Red Dot Laser Sight.

Mine came with the batteries needed and 3 different sized Allen wrenches. The largest for the rail, the next size down for the bracket to tighten and the smallest for the aiming characteristics. One word of caution...the on/off switch is on the back and could be a problem for short barrel lengths due to the trigger guard. There are other similar red dots that I believe have the on/off off to the side instead of directly behind the device.

You should only attach it to a true Weaver/Picatinny rail. I have another gun I tried it on but it wouldn't center and doubt it would stay attached properly with the violent recoil it could experience.

It also mounted to my Glock 19 perfectly.

I looked at my receipt and found it was 17.99 and free shipping. I thought it was a good deal.
Just an update if anyone is thinking of buying one of these.

They don't work well on a 9mm pistol. I tried it out last night and after several rounds were fired it would no longer stay on. I think I jolted the on/off switch a bit too much. The light still works but only if you hold in the switch.

Come to find out, the one I have is designed for .22 caliber firearms. My bad.
It happens...
