A Weaver, Micro-red dot reflex sight reveiw.
I've been looking for a small red dot sight that I could mount on my Ruger 22/45 Lite.
I've seen several brands including the Burris Fast fire 3 and a JPoint that I found interesting but they are over $200.00. So when I came across the Weaver brand I took a closer look because of the name recognition.
Now I don't know and didn't bother to research to see if it is actually made (by) or made (for) Weaver. So for $70 on Amazon to $80 at Optics planet both with free shipping, I took a chance and ordered one. That was on the 22nd.of August.
It finally arrived on the 3rd. of September, some kind of shipping snafu they said plus it went from Chicago to Ohio and back to Indy but it did arrive safely. Chicago to Indy is only about 200 miles.
OK, so let's get it mounted up, and that part went very well. I mounted the Picatinney rail that came with my Ruger and then mounted the sight, it was just that simple and easy.
I have a laser bore sighting tool that I used to get the Weaver sight lined up and on paper with and that went quick and easy.
So next day I was off to the range where I work part-time. My first shot was 1/4" left and about 1/4" down from the B-2 bullseye at 7 yards, so I moved it on out to 25 yards and fired 4 more shots. WOW! I'm done already and it only took 5 shots and less than 5 minutes.
So I set up a new target to fire 10 more shots for my record keeping which was just the beginning of my problems....
