Red dot sights dot sights...

Postby hakr on Tue Aug 25, 2009 7:35 am

I recently sold a Ruger Mark III with an ultradot red dot sight, the "tube" sight with which most of us are familiar. Worked fine for me.

The other day, I saw a fellow shooting a pistol with the "other" kind of red dot sight, the kind that look like this:


Now, I don't know what brand it was, but it was the type shown in the photo.

What's the difference optically between these sorts of sights and the tube red dot sights? How about in use? Is the sight picture about the same? Advantages/disadvantages of each?
