Good review of a pretty cool product. How (much better) does the dot sight function vs. putting it out in front on an Ultimak rail? I always thought it a bit strange to try to aim with the sight that far away from your eye, part of my hesitation to go that route.
It's not better
at all really; just different. You'll have a wider field of view through the tube if (probably more important if you shoot with one eye closed) but other than that it's not much different. To me the big advantage is being able to clean after shooting corrosive ammo without losing your zero.
