RED DOT SIGHTS
A BUYER’S GUIDE TO TOP-END RED DOTS
Not since Mr. Reese paired chocolate and peanut butter has there been a better pairing than red dot sights and MSRS. Consider a red dot sight a heads-up display for your AR.
If you’ve been reading about or shooting anything more modern than a musket, you undoubtedly have at least heard about red dot sights. These gems of optical technology have simplified the task of sending rounds on target. Just put the red dot (or circle, triangle or whatever) wherever you want your rock to go and, if set up right, that’s where it will land.

The number of red dot sights on the market can be overwhelming. This guide is meant to highlight an elite few that occupy the upper levels of performance and quality. You’ll find the benchmark brands that continue to set industry standards as well as a newcomer that’s making a strong entrance into the market space.
