Red dot sights vs. red dot sights



Log in to see fewer ads
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 looked like what is 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?

Basically its all about size and style.
Red dots all perform the same function, some have adjustable dot size, more levels of intensity and choices of different dot/circle shape.
Some prefer the smaller ones as it relates to the size of the firearm.
Some have more viewable area.
The price goes up as build quality increases.
Bullseye shooters are after the highest quality they can afford regardless of shape.
The better ones have more consistent dot size with minimum blooming.
