22 cal pistol silhouette red dot size question



Log in to see fewer ads
I have just ordered a Volquartsen Black Mamba and plan on outfitting it with a CMore Railway sight because the dot modules can be changed depending on what the use is. I would like to shoot steel and also silhouette. These would require different dot sizes based upon target size and distance. I will use 8 or 10 MOA for steel but I am a little perplexed on what the proper MOA dot size would be for the silhouette.
Any input on what the best dot sizes would be would be very much appreciated.
Thank you
Ray

My Mamba uses a 12 minute for Steel Challenge. For Silhouette I would use a 3 minute dot.

You are going to love the accuracy of the Mamba. I have the Volquartsen trigger kit in mine and the trigger pull is just under 2 pounds. If I use the stock Ruger sear spring the trigger is 2 1/5 pounds.

Dot size?

That's a gorgeous gun. Who makes those grips?
So are you saying that I would need 2 different sights? Or just change modules on the C-more? I think CMore comes in even number MOA's 2,4,6,.8,12 & 16.
I was wondering if I sighted in with a 2 or 4 whether changing the module to a 12 would require re-sighting. I have written to their tech support and so far no answer.
I am not crazy about that.
Thanks for your suggestion. I will consider the 12 MOA

You may get away with just replacing the dot and not having to re sight in. I've had this luck.

You don't need 2 C-More, just change out the module.

I knew that about the CMore and wonder whether there are any other manufacturers who make a changeable dot size. Tell me about your grips.

My grips are Herrett stocks. I set them up for bullseye shooting. For Steel Challenge I use Herrett's without the palm rest. I got them from TheShootersBox.com. He has a good variety and they are not too expensive.

I have been looking for grips and have been hearing that the 22/45 MK IV "lite" which Volquartsen uses will not take most of the grips on the market. Can you tell me if what I heard is wrong? Will any 22/45 MK IV grip fit on this gun? If so, that opens a lot more options for me. I went to Herret's sight and they are indeed nice grips and I thank you for your advice.

You have to get grips specifically designed for the Mark IV 22/45. The Herretts I showed you are for the Mk IV 22/45

Getting back to the original question , in my experience anything over 3 minutes covers up too much of the target. 2 minutes would probably work fine, except for very bright sunny days, you might not be able to see the dot very well. I gave up on the red dot sight for silhouette and went back to iron sights.
