open shotty dots

Recommended Posts

what does everyone use on the dots for their open shotguns.

 

i am currently have a DPP triangle dot on my tooth and nail match 1919, this one seemed like a solid bet as far as what will work best, but how will they hold up in match ( dump barrels, slugs, etc)

 

it came with the jpoint circle dot, but i hated it. 

 

was thinking of running a holosun 510c.

 

any other popular options or reason to not use one  mentioned above?

I wanted the biggest possible window out there which is why I went this way over a DPP or even 507c. I love the 510s in general, I think we have 6 of em at this point!

Overall the VR has been great. Working on a new upgrade now

is that legal for tac or is that an "open dot"

Dont know about tac but in ipsc its ok for open and std per iroa. It does not use battery nor electronics so its only a fiber optic sight w/c project the light to the glass window. In my limited experience in Open, the ring reticle is quite fast to acquire targets for bird and buck shots. For slugs i use the center dot for precise aim.

Every match I've shot, if it has a lens, it's an optic. The SeeAll sight and the Trijicon RX30 would fall into that category too.

They have been hitting Davidson's and selling out within minutes. Watch GunBroker since there were 2 for $580ish buy now recently.

As for the upgrades ... Yeah no clue on that

In a major IPSC match last year, an IROA in eqpt check ruled it to be good in Open and Standards divs. I shoot open by the way.

I amend my previous statement that the venom is the best dot

The holosun 510c is

 

With open shotgun you want a larger window which the holosun provides

It's just too big. I like a nice slim housing on pistols

I believe the most important factor is reliability w/ the SG big kick. CMore Sliderides are the most reliable in my open major pistols but didnt last long on my 1301 in my first and only try. Given time and chance I might try another one. Also Ive seen micro dots give up on some in the middle of stage runs. So for now Im in PSX1000/2000. No circuits and batteries to worry about.

I put a cheap primary arms micro on mine. So far so good I have a sig 5 on the other, but only about a 100 rds thru it.

I’ve been running the Deltapoint triangle on a Saiga for...not really sure, but several years. Guessing 10ish. Works great. For my gun the top of the triangle zeroed at 50 worked out to the bottom being almost perfect at 100. I’m playing around with the Holosun now but I’m less impressed. I’m sure it’s something I’m doing wrong but the QD mount loosens up every couple hundred rounds. There will be some loctite in its future.
