    Red Dot Sight

    Any One use a Red Dot on their Air Rifle's! And what brand is everybody using or recommends? Needing something to put on my RWS 350 magnum! Old Bushnell Scope is about Shot!

    A 350? Perhaps you'd be better off with a magnum rated springer scope. I've had a Ruger air Hawk mangle a Banner- and it's no where near the recoil of your 350. If you're heart-set on a r/d, I'd suggest the Trophy 1X with the rheostat for 4 different reticles. If your 350 eats it, Bushy's warranty will take care of it. Stay away from the chinese knock-offs of this r/d. They don't have the warranty backing that Bushnell does.

    The Bushnell Trophy 1x28 hasn't skipped a beat after hundreds of rounds through my tactical 12 guage . . surely your air rifle hasn't as much recoil.

    Thanks, Men! I just put a R/D on my Ruger Redhawk 44Mag! I haven't sighted in yet! Probably will today! Oh Yeah! It is a Bushnell Trophy! ...tnpaw

    There's a big difference in recoil between a springer, and a shotgun. The shottie recoils to the rear in a single rear ward movement. The springer recoils bing bang boink thud, with repeated backwards and forward movements. Not many scopes are designed to take that bi-directional recoil....

    I hear what you are saying Doc! And will probably go the Scope route! When the old Bushnell finally goes! It does do all you are saying it does!....tnpaw!
