What is everyone using for sights; stock, peep, red dot or scope?
I have had 4 scopes on my 995 and all of them have taken a crap on me. I have now switched back to factory irons as they are accurate and easy to use.
When I took my 995 out to shoot for the first time, I just didn't care for the iron sights. I got out my tools and took the red/green dot off the AR and installed it using the rail included with the rifle. I like it, my son liked it, and a friend who has fired it liked it. I doubt I'll ever put the iron sights back on. Now I've got the BUIS back on the A3 upper and I need to get another red dot to replace them.
Kept my red dot on the 995, am going back to irons on the 4095.
Have not scoped either of my carbines. I find I hit well enough with the iron sights. I don't have to worry about sight-in shots whenever I go to the range.
BSA Red Dot with a dead battery
Since the 995 will be my home defense long gun I dont really see a need for optics or dot sights, but I will give them a go just to see how well they work on the gun. Due to the design of the receiver cover I dont hold a lot of faith in an optical sight keeping zero for a long period of time, but I am sure a dot sight will work fine.
I can't stress enough the importance of iron sights.
If you can't use iron sights then if something happens to your optics when it counts then you're hoo-dooed. But optics are nice. I can't dispute that.
I've got irons on one of my 995's and the other I have a red-dot.
I have the magazine pouch on my stock, so I just took an extra battery, left it in the blister pack, and slipped it under the elastic. That way, I've got an unopened spare with me wherever I go. :wink:
Or if the battery dies or is dying and you cannot find another one SHTF situation just carefully mark where the dot is on the scope and TADAAA you have a spot to aim on
My 995 and AK-47 use the red dot sights. My 4095 has a 3-9X30 scope.
550 rounds and still going strong! 8)
Primal you sure have had bad luck on them. I have a BSA red dot on a 12 gauge pump shotgun and it has survived over 30 rds so far. :shock:
