....unmagnified site LOL
Still depends on what you define at "short" range. I feel comfortable using a dot sight to 100 yards. After that I don't really feel the accuracy is there, but thats more me than the gun.Currently I have a scope on the rifle suitable for hunting. I thought I'd remove it & try an undignified site used for short range quick acquisition. The plan is to do more plinking & become more proficient with the rifle. Still don't know if it fits my needs as a home defense rifle.
Its definitely hard to aim at a small spot when your dot covers it lol. Im hoping aiming at a larger target will help that. But if I planed on consistently shooting past 100 I would look at something magnified tooStill depends on what you define at "short" range. I feel comfortable using a dot sight to 100 yards.

Yeah I love it too! I set this rifle up for hunting in the woods so most shots will be around 50 yards too. It seems like a very good sight. The astigmatism sucks but what do ya do lolI bought the Romeo5 & mounted it up. It zeroed in quickly at 50 yds which is what I consider appropriate for my needs. If I decide to use the rifle for longer range shooting I'll put the scope back on. I hope to get more shooting in, but the red dot seems to be just the ticket for quick handling & shooting!
You need a holographic sight if you have astigmatism, but they are not cheap.Astigmatism is a real problem with red dots sights, green dots too. I’ve found my prescription polarized sunglasses clean up the starry blurs to a more distinct dot. Not perfect but perfectly serviceable. The polarized sun glasses work OK with my Sightmark and quite well with the Strikefire II.
