1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Got a friend at work who has just purchased a new pistol for his young son and asked me today which of the above sights are best and a preferred brand, he’s not the chap that will buy the cheapest so across the price range would be good. I have no idea as have never used either! ...any ideas please?
    Thanks in anticipation.

    "Cheap" red dot holographic type sites are exactly that, cheap. They lose zero so easily and are difficult to adjust with a large bright red dot - this covers too much of the target as you get further away.

    I found the best "value" was a red dot sight from Hawke (or similar) like these ones from £20 : https://www.uttings.co.uk/p102895-hawke-red-dot-sport-dot-sight-12-100/#.XDjqavZ2vb0

    In the end I went top end after using both these types initially and got something very small and light, but your now into hundreds of pounds which for a star up is no use.

    Thanks James, I think I read somewhere exactly what you have advised, I don’t think he is shy of spending a penny or two for something that does the job properly.

    Now a question for you regarding your avatar - are you a Duck breeder? or am I totally off piste?

    It's Daffy duck being shot at on an American style Xing sign, I just found it novel. Nothing to do with duck breeding, but I've despatched a few;)

    Ha! No worries, just that I have a friend who was one of the UK’s top duck breeders and seeing your avatar as “Duck King” made me wonder if you were in the same business. Atb, Rog
