Alternative sighting systems for revolvers.

As some will know I have a 4" Redhawk.

A long time ago I had queried fitting a scope to it. Needless to say I soon realised this was not really a good idea on such a short barrel.

Subsequently, I ordered (but didn't pay upfront for) some FO sights for the same gun. That was 9 months ago and they still haven't arrived. For some reason getting stock from the States is a herculean challenge for some shops...

So... Instead would one of those small red-dot reflex sights be an option for where the rear sight sits?

I mean one of the small (SMALL!!) systems where there is a single lens perpendicular to the firearm that the red-dot shines onto.

Are they ever used? Worth investigating further?
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.

Karma. Another word for revolver: because what goes around, comes around!
