A red dot sight is intended for use at close to moderate ranges. Each sight gives you an aimpoint in the form of a illuminated red dot. A red dot sight generally maintains its accuracy, even after it has been used in conjunction with hundreds of ammunition rounds. Additionally, a sight is usually easy to adjust, and it may include a battery that will continue to perform for several months. Each sight is simple to mount to a wide range of rifles. Some sights even offer you the option of using an illuminated red or green dot. Various sights are designed for use during the day and at night.
