22/45 red dots

any of you running a red dot? I want to do bullseye shooting and want a good dot. Basically I want my pistol to be able to switch duties between a practice gun and competition gun, making a red dot necessary (i don't want to constantly be adjusting the sights, keep the irons set how i shoot defensively and then use the red dot for direct holdover instead of six o clock. what red dots you all using?

I've got a BSA on my MKIII.

Cheap red dots do alright on .22lr.

But by the sounds of it you want to remove the red dot to practice with iron sights. If so you will have to sight in the red dot when you remount it.

posted from my stupid smart phone, please excuse any spelling mistakes.

For Bullseye Match Dot rules. I run CMores on my pistols but they aren't for bullseye.

I like an Aimpoint ML3. With the ARMS mount I can switch between the dot and irons at will.

Based on most of the responses I don't know what Bullseye shooting equipment is all about anymore. Lot of interesting choices for optics being made.

If I could suggest, it would be very informative if you attended a bulls eye match to observe what equipment is being used by the majority of the shooters. I work some bulls eye matches as a range officer, and I am right there on the firing line and get to check out what everyone is using. As stated above, most bulls eye shooters are using Ultra Dot Match Dot red dot scopes on all of their bulls eye pistols. Go observe a match being shot. You will learn A Lot about what the top shooters are using.

Damn, I might have to upgrade my fixed base PA Micro-Dot to one of the removable ones and use that mount. I LIKE it.

C-more Railway if you're looking at Steel Challenge. Putting a dot on the Ruger is a good idea, though. Had a C-more on a Buckmark and because of how you have to take it apart to clean it, you have to remove it from the gun, clean it, then take it back to the range to rezero it...
