I want to put a reddot on my g17 -- There are handful of options... Does anyone have any real-world info/experience/opinions? The only experiences I've had are the el-cheapo ones and a burris fastfire iii (which is much nicer than ii) The g17 is for home defense and as defense when hiking/hunting. I'm leaning towards another fastfire due to the price and I know it works; I have one on my racoon gun (.22 rifle) (they seem to like to try to attack our dog). I'm interested in speed/accuracy, plus/minuses of reticle size/shape, and real-world parallax issues. Here's what I found while hunting around: $450 DeltaPoint (inc. mount) Requires removal to replace battery $240 Burris FastFire III (already have a glock mount) "parallax free to 50 yards" $400+mount c-more "100% parallax free"; Seems battery compartment could easly open on it's own. $500 Docter (Mount is $100) $290 jpoint (mount is $40) $600 eotech/insight MRDS (mount is $100) $230 ultradot (on "clearance", not made anymore?) A couple of sights seemed to indicate that bases might be a bit more "universal" than I thought... (same mount works for eotech and docter) If true, this makes some of the sights cheaper if I can find a generic mount Another option is to remove the fastfire from my 22 rifle & put an eotech on it; then put the fastfire on the glock $415 Eotech 512 I'm currently leaning towards one of two way: 1) buy an eotech 512 for my rifle (I have one on an ar); use the fastfire on the glock: Plus: I upgrade the sight on a home-weapon that we actually use. (We live rurally) 2) another fastfire just due to price, and I somehow feel comforted in that they admit parallax issues beyond 50 yards. But if a different reddot is superior enough then I'd rather do the G17 with a new sight, as the fastfire/22 is proven acceptable. Thanks for your thoughts. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
