red dot for Ruger 10/22

Postby jimdigriz on Wed Sep 02, 2009 10:58 am

I need a good red dot option for the 10 22, and would appreciate any suggestions. It needs to return to zero after removal. Rain resistant would be nice. I prefer the Eotech-style sights, in terms of the viewing window, rather than an Aimpoint-style scope, although I'm not dogmatic on the issue. (An Eotech itself would be too big and bulky, as well as overkill for the 10 22). Battery life should not be pitiful. It doesn't need to be mil-spec rugged, but I don't want something overly fragile. I'm willing to spend up to around $300.

Any thoughts on what might fit this bill?

Thanks.

The Bushnell HOLOsight in black or camo would be perfect for your gun. Waterproof, small size (uses "N" batteries), and has the window you like. These are superb units and a steal. We bought all the remaining stock from Bushnell. EOTech made them for Bushnell and I have even taken a few apart and compared them to the EOTech branded sights. Not much practical difference, and no difference as far as a .22 is concerned. One of my all-time favorite red dot sights. Nothing is guaranteed a complete return to zero. Nothing. But the HOLOsight, reinstalled in the exact same place with the same tightness will be as close as anything out there.

Thanks Steven. Someone else recommended the same thing to me. It does look like a good unit, and similar to the Eotech I was planning to put on my AK.

So in saying that you bought the remaining stock from Bushnell, I guess that means they are no longer producing it. I hope you don't sell out of them before I can obtain the funds. (I'm buying the Eotech first).

I'm curious: Why did they discontinue the Holosight?

EOTech has a hard enough time keeping up with orders for their own products. The profit wasn't there, either, making some for Bushnell. Too bad for us because they are excellent products.
