How to Choose The Best Red Dot For 44 Magnum?
Choosing a sight for your favorite gun is always hard. But it doesn’t have to be hard if you don’t make it hard. What I mean is, you can make the decision much easier if you keep a couple of things in mind.
As .44 magnum is used by revolver, we don’t want to take a sight that is bigger than the gun itself. That’s why, you should take a sight that is not too overwhelming for the gun and most specially, smaller than the rail on the gun.
Weight is another key part for red dots. Red dots are usually very light. But often they can be heavier than holographic sights as well. Ideally, you would want a lighter sight.
Magnum hits like a truck. It also has a recoil like a truck. Don’t let the size fool you but it packs a good recoil. You need a well-built sight that won’t fail on you from recoil.
Not a lot of reviewers or users puts enough credit on this department. Warranty is a key part of a good sight. They are small items and anything can happen to them. Having a warranty backed up sight is always good.
Well, that took longer than we anticipated. But our goal was to deliver you the best sight for .44 magnum and I firmly believe we managed to do just that. Sure, there are more than 1 sights on the list, but all of them are good and there is no wrong decision.
Stick to the one that you can afford and the one that matches your needs. That’s all for now, we will be back with more. Take care.
