Osprey Reflex Sight has too much paralax..

WAAAY too much!! It's on a Buckmark. As I move my head side to side the dot moves 10-12 inches @ 25 yards.

Do more expensive ones have less or no paralax? Recommendations?

Yes, better sights will move less. Buy a better sight (Burris Speed dot, Vortex SPARC,etc) for less movement, more consistent adjustments, sharper reticles, etc.

However I'm surprised that even the Osprey sight actually moves that much. Even my crappy BSA sight doesn't move that much. Have you benched it to ensure that you're not moving the pistol while moving your head? Have you benched it and evaluated the real POI change?

May seem like overkill for a Buckmark, but genuine Eotech's have zero parallax. The XPS series is reasonably sized, comes in a single dot, or dot within a 65 moa ring, but is very pricey. If extra size dosen't bother you, get an older 512 model. They can be had relatively cheap, and run on AA's for a long time. It will look huge on the Browning, though. Just be cautious; there are a LOT of fake ET's ou there that look and feel almost perfect, but are junk by comparison, and will have the same parallax issues.
