Checking to see if anyone here has used one of these and may be able to weigh in on setting one up. A friend of mine has loaned me one to try and I can't seem to get it on paper at 50 yards.

It's about ten inches high and the down adjustment is maxed out. It's mounted on a standard Weaver base.

Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

John

If you haven't already, try adjusting it the opposite way; some red dots I have tried worked that way, ie. if you adjusted it down the red dot would move down, which would raise the point of impact.

The red dot acts like the front sight of iron sights.

So depending on what the "down" adjustment means: does it move the red dot down (poi up) or does it move the point of impact down (red dot up)?

The bottom line is to move the red dot to the point of impact, regardless of how the sight is marked.

Thank you Gregg.

I have the dot centered and in close proximity to the front sight in terms of position in hopes it would be close that way. It isn't.

I was wondering if a higher base/mount would help or just make it worse. I asked my friend if he had any ideas and his response was, "What do you expect from a red dot that costs less than $100?"
\:\)


He also said these have less adjustment room than most. If no one has any ideas here I will give it back and purchase an Aimpoint. I was checking it more for size and fit on the gun than function as it is comparably sized to the Aimpoint I was looking at but also hoped to get a little shooting done with it as well.
