Episode 29 – Red Dot Sights

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.


Episode 18 – Introduction to scope mounts: Scope bases

Airgun scope bases are different than firearm scope bases, although they share similarities. Airguns are more difficult to mount scopes, and the scope bases do all the work. Learn about the different types of scope bases and when they’re used.


Episode 17 – Introduction to scope mounts: Scope stops

Airguns are different than firearms in many ways, but one of the most surprising is that airguns can be much harder on scopes and scope mounts than firearms. It’s not the power, it’s the two-recoil delivered by spring-piston airguns. Therefore, you need a scope stop for your spring guns, especially the powerful springers. Learn all about scope stops and scope-stop pins in this instructional video.
