I just bought a Mark III Hunter friday and this gun needs a better sight!!

Dont know weather to scope it or red dot it, Im leaning tward a red dot though.

Who has any ideas on what to get? Or stay away from for that matter.

Thanks in advance!

I put a red dot on my Mark II-Its great fun to put the dot on a paper target and within 10 shots your aiming at a 1/2 hole at 20yds.I found it very quick to target and follow-up shots.MOPO.Hope this helps,Slugnut

A buddy of mine put a red dot on his 22/45 and squirrel hunts with it. This is an older gun and he had to get a mount from B-square to make it work.

I had a 2-6X32 B&L on my Ruger Hunter .44. It seemed to take to long to center the scope. I put a red dot on it and I believe it's faster than the iron sights, let alone a scope. I now have 3 pistols with red dots, and I'm very happy with them. They are the .44, a mod 28S&W PPC gun, and a High Standard Victor .22 target.

I tried my MK3 Hunter w factory sights;what a mistake. I have since put on a Bushnell Trophy red dot scope. I can actually keep my shots in the bullseye at 15 yds. Go with the red dot.

How far away can you see the red dot?? I have a Ruger Target model .22/45 MK III and I have been thinking about getting either a scope of a red dot but didn't know how far the dot can be seen.

I have had several 22 LR pistols over the years, I am a accuracy nut in a way. I don't hunt but I love to plink and get as accurate as I can with my pistols. I had a S&W Model 41 that I tried two diffrent red dots on and for accuracy they would not work at 25 yards. My bullseye's were approx. a dime size and the dot was bigger than the bullseye at 25 yards. No magnification to a red dot. They are great for close range free hand shooting and hunting squirrel and such. But for a 25 small bulls eye a scope is the best bet from a bench. I now am building a Ruger Mk II 10" that I will mount a scope on it. It should shoot as good if not better than my S&W Model 41. i could put 10 rounds all in that dime size bulls eye.
So I guess what I am saying, it depends what you are going to be shooting at or using the gun for.
