    I have a scope on mine. Regularly sit beside the AR guys and shoot at the 130 yard range.

    All three. On three different guns.

    I have the factory sights, which I believe are excellent. :D

    Here's how it punches paper:

    Both of mine are the factory sights. My 9mm's are for close in work only.
    So, 0 to 50 yards is no problem. Yes, I can do very well at 100 yards
    with my old eyes. But my AR's are for 50 yards on up in range.

    I have more guns than scopes so my 2 scopes and 1 red dot get changed out. I like the red dot on my 995, but so far have only shot it with iron sights at 50yds. When I move over to the 100yd range I might stick something on it.

    Factory irons only, though I am contemplating adding an Amazon red dot.

    He's on vacation for a couple of weeks. I got tired of telling him to stop creating multiple threads of the same topic in different locations of the forum.

    Well that makes it simpler
  12. Factory sights on mine are good for 4-6 inch groups at 100 yards. That's good enough as far as i'm concerned.
  13. When you get back, I just use the factory sights that came with the gun.
  14. Factory groups at 25, 50 and 100 yards are good with factory sights so no need for "technology" or "shiny things" on the gun for me.

    I like the red dot on my 45 carbine. It lets me keep both eyes open and gives a broad field of view.

    I tried a red dot but went back to the std sights, just liked it better.

    Factory, at the moment. May put a red dot on it later, but it’s pretty much for up close and personal ranges for now.

    Not gonna lie. The factory sights are awesome. But so is the BSA red dot... a big plus is that you can see a red dot much easier at night. Once you have muscle memory of where to hold the rifle, if the red dot goes out, front sight alone works perfectly. But for front sight use only, you must have muscle memory of hold down to a tee. I co_witness the BSA with the front iron. Love it so much and it is so much fun to shoot.

    Heres a video of me on the range with it
