Went shooting with my neighbor and after I shot his MKIII with a red dot sight on it he told me that he had more optics than he did guns and decided to just give me one of his extras for my MKIII. As you can imagine I'm pretty excited to get a free red dot sight. I will be sighting it in the next time I go to the range and I also plan to use it in the bullseye shoots the club I'm joining holds.

Yep, sure does.
You may be in a position to reciprocate one day.
I sure hope so. In the mean time I do plan to at least take him out for a beer and some food. I at least know one place we both like. Right after he stopped by and gave me the sight my girlfriend and another friend of mine went to a local bbq place and as we were finishing up my neighbor and his cousin happened to walk in. Totally unplanned its funny how those things work out sometimes.

Have you seen it operate before? The reason I ask is because it looks exactly like the rig I just bought for my Browning Buck Mark.





Mine's not a red dot, it's a hologram with 4 different sight settings & 7 retical settings. It's a lot of fun because once it's sighted in you literally can't miss & it allows you to shoot with both eyes open.

It does look strikingly similar and I have not tried it yet. It will be a few weeks but I'll either reply here or send you a pm with some results unless of course you beat me to the range then you have to le me know how it went.

I got the same sight at Cabela's. I think the brand name was Sightmark. (On the road, can't go look.) Works great on my S&W 22A. It even works in the midday sunlight on the highest settings. Nailed a feral cat with it DRT at about 15 yards.

Too bad you have to wait so long to get to the range, I've had mine out 2 times already & I love it.
BTW, I was told, by the owner of my LGS, to sight in the gun with it's original sights first & then with the scope (?) on it. I have no idea if he's correct or not , but I did it.

I've had my MKIII for almost a year now so I've had it sighted in with my iron sights for some time now.
