    Default Red Dot

    A buddy gave me a Red Dot off his Sig Sauer P556 pistol. I mounted it on my new Hi-Point .45 carbine and it doesn't seem to stay on target. I was told they were not very good and to get another. Saw a thread on here about the Tru-Glow red dot. Any suggestions? I don't want to spend a lot on a $300 gun. Only need to be good for at the most 100yds. Thanks

    I have a $80 Tru-Glo red dot on my Browning 22lr takedown semiauto rifle
    that worked good on it.I may try it on my 4595.
    I put about 25 of my reloads thru my new carbine.
    230gr cast LRN with 6 grains of Unique gave a mild recoil.

    Hey Rails- I fired about 50 in mine the first day and got the dot centered at a indoor range. A couple of days later at an outdoor range I shot at 50 and 100 yrds. Using Blazer ammo I kept getting creep from the sight. I've waited 2 years for this 4595 carbine and I think it was worth the wait. Just need to get a sight that works.

    I've had good luck with the cheap tasco red dot sights. They're not very tacticool, but they've worked on everything I've put them on 22's, 223, 44mag, 12ga.

    Thanks Moleman- I could care less about cool- I just want a sight that works! I have AK's and a few SKS's but AR-15's are what I've been playing with lately-with some help from you guys-but a Mall Ninja I ain't! Ha HA! I always thought Sig stuff was pretty good but this Red Dot Sight is a POS. For a cheap rifle this Hi-Point isn't bad Bill

    Another vote for the Tasco. I've had one on a Mini 14 for many years. Same battery too. If I recall, it even came w/ rings.

    I've got a couple of those NcStar bi-pods on AR's. Cheap but pretty good quality.

    Is there any kind of lock nut opposite of the adjustment screw?
    I picked a Barska red dot out of trash at a club.(I saw the guy get pissed and throw it in there saying something about cant problems) The problem was on the windage adjustment and at first it would push it to far to one side until trial and error-sight it in a little to the left and locknut would then push it to the right just enough.
