Anyone have a 4 inch redhawk with an optic on it? thinking a ultradot or one of the small dots. Any pictures would be great.

This is a 5 1/2" RH but it should get you what you are asking about.
This is the mount ( EGW DeltaPoint mount )

Dave Clements.44 Magnum Redhawk with Weigand mount and Primary Arms Advanced Red Dot Sight. It's a handy combo, but I'm getting too much starburst effect for any distance shooting. I haven't tried it with my (relatively) new glasses, so it could be better now.

I have a SW 686 4 inch - I did not care for the Vortex Razor so I swithched to Weigand mount and a MatchdotII - just personal preference but both worked well from a mounting and function perspective. Pic of Razor in the Brag Board

John, try it with your new glasses. I had the same problem with my red dots. New glasses fixed that.

Wow! What a difference the glasses made! Thanks for the advice. The starburst is all but gone. I had great vision my whole life, until the insidious evil that is age crept up on me. My vision faded so slowly that I didn't realize it was happening until it couldn't be ignored. Thanks again!
