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.
