Anybody Use a BSA Red Dot 30?

I just got one for my buckmark. Will try it out at the range on Saturday.

How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

I have one on my Smith 22a. I like it a lot. I have it sighted in at 50 yards, usually shoot at 25 yards though.
I have one on my plinging rifles - mossberg 22lr, I will probally be putting my regular scope back on it as I don't feel comfortable with it on.
Now I might have to buy something else to put it on.

I've had this one on an MK II for a couple of years.

For $25, it seems to be a nice value.

Not a bad dot for the price if you luck out and get a good one. The one I had several years ago wouldn't hold zero. (On a .22 auto!)

For my 12 year old daughter, I put one on my AR15 for plinking. We loves it.

I have used one on my .45-70 Contender (14") It has held zero acceptably well, but in bright sunlight, the dot goes away (very hard to see), even at the highest setting.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
