The advantage of a red dot sight over a laser is that it can clearly be seen in
direct sunlight. You can point the sight into the sky and clearly see the red dot.
There are a wide variety of new high tech red dot sight available on the market today.
The range in price for a red dot sights can vary from $20.00 to $500.00.
The difference is what the sight is made of, features and the optics.
The red dot sight that is included with the slingshot is good and works well.
However, the sight is made of plastic and the lens is not made of glass. The
parallax error for the optics is not bad,yet is not as good as the more expensive sights.
To maximize accurate, and reduce the parallax, try to keep red dot in the middle of the sight
The higher end red dot sights are holographic. This means that a target pattern will
appear when looking through the sight. The pattern that appears can be used to
compensate for bullet or arrow drop.
The red dot sight has a left/right and elevation adjustment on the slingshot like that found on guns.
For long distance shots, the elevation is easily adjusted by turning a knob which compensates for bullet drop.
