Things To Keep in Mind Before Buying
While buying the perfect red dot sight for your pistol, you should keep a couple of things in consideration. That will make your decision much easier.
Not a lot of people puts deep thoughts to the size of the overall sight. If the sight is too big for the rail of your pistol, it will create an imbalance. The bad weight distribution will make you miss most of your shots. That’s why, you should stick to a moderately smaller sight.
Almost the same argument as size. Lighter sights are better.
Depending on how much you are willing to spend, the list of sight will shrink instantly. If you know how much you are willing to spend, the decision will be much easier.
FN 509 Tactical is a great gun that synergizes with a lot of sights out there. Finding the best sight for a gun like this is not an easy task. We never claimed it will be easy either.
