I'm not gonna use it for that. I have a vortex 3-9 on it. In was just giving an example. One could use a red dot for sub 50 yard shots.

I'll wait for a TRS25 + Riser offer.
UTG high rider works for full cowitness. I have to look up the part number, but they also make a skeltonized riser that is more than an ounce lighter than the AR optic version that comes with a rise and is $9.

I'd still rather have a Primary Arms one that is similar to an Aimpoint. Sometimes it's worth it to spend more.

My rebate is in. Ended up being $69.99 before the rebate, but heck, $30 for a decent red dot is still a pretty good deal.

Sad I couldn't have scored the deal when it was less than 60 a pop. I regret even more I just didn't have the spare change to go in on 2 or 3.

I got two red dots in today. I looked at one and the red dot looked a little like a comet tail and the other is like a stick. I know this is a budget optic. is this normal?

BTW "these go to eleven"

How high was the setting? Also do you have an astigmatism? Most people who do will see it kind of like that, especially if too bright. Mine resolves as a nice and tiny little dot. However if it is over driven, line turning it above about 3 or 4 in a dark room, it does smudge. Turning it up to 8 or 9 causes no issues in full daylight.

That goes with both of the TRS-25 I have.

optic

Thank you dr Lazarus.I do indeed have a astigmatism. Can anyone tell me the correct rise for the AR. I bought a one inch but I think it might be to tall for full co-witness. What height do I use.Can I use the 1 inch if I do not use a rear sight(for now)

Thanks

Yeah you can use whatever with the front sight, but it won't necessarily be the same POA as the rear sight.

Outrider58 tip: stack quarters on the rail until the optic co-witnesses. Measure stack of quarters, buy appropriate riser.

With a trs-25 it is something like a .83" riser gets full cowitness (UTG medium riser) with most AR sights. UTG makes a nice aluminum skeltonized riser that weighs about 1.4oz compared to the 3oz of the TRS-25 "AR" redot (the one that comes with a riser).

Also I have a very minor right eye astigmatism.
