Holographic Sights - Optima, Trijcon, or Doctor Red Dot?

I plan on hunting with a Ruger SRH. Which sight would you recommend? If none of these, do you have another suggestion?

I'll give another vote for the Optima 2000. It fits like it was made for my Glock 20. It's held up real well and I'm very happy with it. The down side is that they stopped making them. You can still find them on the auction sites, but at elevated prices.

I've seen the doctor website and the site looks good. Kind of a beefed up optima. I'd like to see one first hand before I dropped nearly $300 on one.

I'm sure Trijicon makes a quality product but it would seem to bulky to me to put on a pistol.

Good luck!

Isn't the Doctor made by the same folk who made the Optima for tasco? (Or am I thinking of a firepoint?)

i've shot weapons with the bushnell and the trijicon. i like the trijicon the best. seems more sturdy, requires no battieres, is great at night, and just looks stronger.

I bought an Optima 2000 and mounted it on my .45 Colt Blackhawk that I use for deer hunting. I loved it as I practiced with it all summer. It held up real good to the recoil of +P magnum hunting loads. But.... it uses an automatic brightness control. Our deer hunting hours begin at 30 minutes before sunrise, and end 20 minutes after sunset. My Optima would not turn on until 20 minutes into legal shooting hours... and as Murphy's Law prescribes... 5 minutes before it was bright enough to activate the dot on the overcast and snowy opening morning... three deer walked by at 20 yards. I don't know how it would've worked at 15 minutes or so after sunset, because by noon it was off the gun, and my 2x scope was back on and sighted in. The Optima is now on my wife's High Standard Victor.

Out of the three choices, I'd go with the Trijicon Reflex. It works without batteries... and in the low light first thing in the morning.
Average response time to a 911 call is 23 minutes.
Average response time of a 1911 in .45acp is 850 fps.
