If you think lasers are just for military use, you need to watch this video! Lasers can really help you drill your target or quarry. Unlike scopes, lasers can easily be fitted on most air rifles and air pistols. Because lasers don’t have parallax or the same limitations as magnifying optics, they can be used on just about anything that shoots a projectile.
In this video, we tell you about the different laser beam colors, which color is best for your use, and some important points about safe and legal use. Whether lasers are used with other optical devices or in conjunction with them, you’ll notice increased accuracy when you use them.
There’s one correction we have to make to the video that could not be made post-production (and we didn’t catch during production). Almost 5 minutes into the video, we show you a row of screws that are labeled as adjustment screws for the laser. In fact, these are NOT the laser adjustment screws. They’re the screws that tighten the laser’s mount.
Dot sights are a wonderful addition to any gun that has dovetails or a mounting rail. They’re easy to use and have a rheostat to make the dot larger or smaller, which also makes the dot brighter and dimmer, respectively. Unlike scopes, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’re putting your dot sight on an air pistol or air rifle. The same sight will work perfectly on either type of airgun.
Some dot sights have only a red dot, while others come with the option of green or blue dots. Most dot sights do not have any magnification. Those that are magnified usually have only 2x or 3x power.
Watch our video and learn about a great optical sight option that you may not have considered before.
