Offset optic recommendation


Recommended Posts

I run a SRO offset. Switched over from the RMR for the larger window in the SRO. I'll likely swap to SRO main, SRO offset for 2021. I wasn't sure how I'd like them compared to the MRO but the smaller body of the SRO seems to be faster on the timer so far.

I use a 6 MOA Vortex Venom which I've been very happy with.  It's personal preference but I would not want a 2nd full size red dot blocking some of your view when transition to the next target.

That was my concern, having another full sized optic.

Might sound weird, but what about switching eyes? Your shooting both eyes open anyways and your other eye is already offset lol.

 

I couldn’t find an offset sight/mount I liked so one day I just ran some drills while consciously telling myself to use my other non-dominant (left in my case) eye. It felt super weird and slow at first and I didn’t think it was going to work... but on a whim I stuck a paster on my glasses right in front of my dominant (right) eye and ran another 100rds of the hard lean drill... I was getting good hits so I ran it some more... after a bit I took off the paster and now it works for me, weird but not that weird lol.

 

I still have to coach/remind myself to switch eyes before stages with tough leans, but when I do it, it works 😉 Now IDK about headbox shots at 25yrds, but closer in, especially on hoser targets, it works great.

I’m using a smaller reflex sight for the offset. I have Vortex Viper and RTS2 on some of my guns. 6 MOA to find it a little quicker, usually the lean shots are closer in distance. I switch eyes for leans when using an offset. I normally use my right eye and switch to the left for leans. I’m right handed but left eye dominant. I can use either eye with the dot very quickly/easily. When I shoot pistol, I usually bring up both iron sight guns and red dot guns up to my left (Dominant) eye. Hope someone finds this interesting or helpful.
