Scope or Red Dot...?

Log in to see fewer ads
for about 6 months now, I've been playing around with my X-22 Hunter model TD and decided I can't hit the broad side of a barn with open sights any more (my eyes have gotten bad). I put on a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot that is fine for shooting cans at 25 yards, but the cheap beam pattern is too diffuse to be accurate for small game out to 80 yards or so.

I have a Vortex Venom 3MOA that I might swap over from my 22/45 pistol

or I'm considering a *small* low power scope like the Vortex Crossfire II 1-4x24 (V-Brite).

I like the idea of an illuminated red dot inside of a 1-4 magnification. However, this scope weighs about 15 ounces and is about 10" long so I worry that it will ruin the light, handy ergonomics of the gun that I really cherish...

The other option I'm considering is the Diamondback 1.75-5x32 which weighs about 2 ounces less and is about the same length (but no illuminated dot). Both are around the same price as a Venom red dot ($200-ish).

Any thoughts from others that have faced this dilemma with a TD that you use for hunting?
