View Full Version : Making a red dot scope

03-24-2005, 01:52 PM
It's probably a bad idea , but id like to make my g&p integrated carry handle+scope into a 3.5xred dot because it is just about impossible to use at night.It is a 3.5x scope and i would like to buy a cheap reddot from wally world (walmart) and wanted to know if there is a specific reason that magnified scopes are not reddot, like do they harm your eye , or are they too easy to notice? Have any of you heard of or ever done such a modification?I so please tell me.Thank you.

First, read these:

Wouldn't it just be easier to buy an illuminated scope? They have lit reticules with magnification. Some somewhat inexpensive ones to look at would be the NCStar scopes.

Very few red-dot sights have magnification unless you have a good amount of money.
