AR-15 Red Dot Sights From G2 Precision
Red dot sights are firearm optics designed to be used at close to medium ranges that displays a simple red dot reticle shining onto s slanted lens or piece of glass. This style of gun sight makes for a simple and accurate optic. Shooters use red dot sights on various types of firearms but red dots have become increasingly popular for being used on AR-15 rifles. The close quarters use of an AR-15 for competition and home/personal defense is optimized with a red dot.

Advantages and Benefit of Red Dot Sights on AR-15 Rifles
Red dot sights have been an attractive optic choice for tactical carbines like AR-15 rifles because they’re fast for sight acquisition, mount easily and take up little space on top rails. Weight and size are a clear advantage over a heavier and bulkier traditional scope. This increases speed and accuracy especially in competition, target and close-medium quarters personal defense shooting.
Visibility of an illuminated red dot reticle on top of a target is often much higher than a traditional black crosshair of a scope. G2 Precision also offers red dot style sights with green dots, red and green crosshairs and other styles and colors of reticles. We call them “red dot” sights for short, but there are a variety of styles of sights using red dot technology that can optimize visibility in a variety of shooting situations.

Red Dot Sights vs. Other Optics for Rifles
Most shooters mount optics to AR-15 and when considering a red dot sight for an AR15, shooters of all styles and needs want to compare other optics such as magnified crosshair scopes and holographic sights.
Some advantages red dot sights have over other scopes and sights include being able to shoot with both eyes open, the ability to compatible with night vision, being lighter with a smaller footprint on an AR-25 and generally allowing for faster target acquisition from 5 to 50 yards.
Some shortcomings of red dot sights as a whole to capabilities of magnified scopes include magnification and drawbacks for shooters with astigmatism. Magnified red dot sights are available, but traditional rifle scopes offer more magnification which allows for longer range shooting and hunting. For the estimated 1 in 3 people whose vision is affected by a degree of astigmatism red dot sights can appear misshapen and blurred. Holographic or scope sights would be better for a person with that impairment.
