Reflex Sights and Red Dot Sights

Reflex sights, also known as red dot sights, are the technology-of-the-day. Reflex sights use fiber optics, LED’s, or Tritium to create a red dot inside the rifle or pistol scope. The dot looks like it is on the target, but it is visible only to the shooter. Where the dot shows, the bullet goes. Reflex sights out-perform laser sights under well-lit conditions.

Manufacturers of Reflex Sights and Red Dot Sights

Adco

We at ADCO continue to offer a broad line of sights for every shooting discipline. The sights featured in the following pages are electro-dot reflex sights. They use the same system employed by fighter aircraft to achieve fast target acquisition. Unlike laser sights, reflex sights only use the red (or green) dot within the sight. The dot is not projected to the target. The reflex sight works by reflecting a light emitting diode (LED) off a coated Lens, bringing the red or green color back to the eye in the form of a reflection. This is why it is parallax-free The dot on the lens is superimposed on the target. There is no need to focus in a front and rear sight with the target. There is no need to center the dot. After sighting in, if you see the dot on the target, you’re on target!

Trijicon

Human vision is based upon a binocular (two eyes) presentation of visual evidence to the brain. The word binocular literally means using both eyes at the same time. We most often associate this word with binocular instruments such as field glasses or a binocular microscope. These instruments specifically strive to present the object to be viewed the same way to both eyes. Vision research material was examined for its assistance to understand the optically aided weapon aiming process. Three major types of optical enhancement were compared. There are strong customer preferences in reticle designs, some simple reticles enhance the speed of target acquisition, others allow for greater precision in a given time limit. The simple substitution of a bright red dot for the usual cross-hairs makes it very easy to keep both eyes open. Just as in the Single point or Armson O.E.G. sighting, the brain merges the two images. During dynamic movement, the scene through the telescope blurs because the image moves more rapidly due to magnification. The one eye sees the bright dot against the blurred target scene, so the brain picks the scene from the unaided eye. The shooter swings the weapon towards the target while perceiving the dot indicating where the weapon is pointed. As soon as the weapon begins to become steady in the target area, the brain switches to the magnified view.
