reddot for pistols
Thank you for your interest in www.OpticsPlanet.com
Assuming you have the weaver scope base that came with your Ruger MK II usst, attaching any red dot scope or handgun scope should be simple. If not, you will need to purchase a base from Ruger or go with an aftermarket mount.
Your choice of a red dot scope will depend on the type of shooting you expect to do.
Most red dot scopes come with large dots (5 or 6 MOA) for easy visibility under a variety of conditions. If you plan to use your Ruger MK II for casual plinking, any of the red dot scopes by Tasco, such as the Tasco 1x30 Red Dot Sight BKR30 - Illuminated 5 M.O.A Red Dot, http://www.opticsplanet.com/tasco-1x30-reddot.html or the larger Tasco 1x42 ProPoint Sight Red Dot BKRD42 Scope, http://www.opticsplanet.com/tas1xpropsig.html would be good, economical choices.
To get the most accuracy out of your slabside Ruger, though, you will need to go to a red dot with a smaller reticle. Here I would recommend the EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sight 510 ( 511 / 512 )
511-D1: EOTech HWS 510 w N Alkaline Battery and 1 MOA Dot Reticle, http://www.opticsplanet.com/eotech-holo ... t-510.html . This is a holographic sight which offers the advantage of not having to have your eye directly in line with the scope to see the dot.
In my opnion, though, the best choice and easily the most versatile choice would be the Nikon Monarch Red Dot Sight in the special order VSD version #6612, http://www.opticsplanet.com/nikon-dot-sight.html The VSD (variable size dot) version of the Nikon Monarch Red Dot Sight allows you to change the size of the dot from 1MOA for target shooting up to a 6MOA dot for more casual use. It is also waterproof and fogproof and built with Nikon quality throughout. This is a special order item, meaning that it will take a few extra days to ship, but I think it would be well worth the extra time. Your Ruger deserves the most accurate sope it can get!
