red dot in bright light

Postby ;asflkh;d on Sat Jul 09, 2005 9:29 pm

I have a BSA 42mm red dot sight. If I ever attempt to use it when it is very bright outside I can not see the dot. What can I do about this? Is the sight just not bright enough? and if so, what is? Thanks!

This is a common problem on red dot scopes. Some models are supplied with a sunshade, which can help when the sun is low and causing glare. Otherwise, all you can do is turn up the illumination.
