I am wondering the same. I can hunt 1 hour before sunrise and an hour afterwards although there is no light at these times. When my rifle scopes are good to go at nearly 45 minutes after sunset, the handgun scopes are out of use.

I'm looking into red dot tubes or reflex. I've been told by another fella that shoots a Ruger 44 that he uses CMORE but he is looking into one of the Leupolds. I was ready to go with a CMORE but the Leupold looks right good.

Any comments on these? My buddy thinks the round dot 2 moa in the Leupold might be the thing.

I think both have variable light intensity which would benefit me quite a bit.

Also, I have a 9" RSB with a 3200 on it. I would leave this as is and use my 7.5"er for faster action closer up. We have piglts to hunt too, Night hunting starts about a month after deer season goes out 12/31.

The JPoint sight mount is a great optic base for red dots on Ruger DA and SA revolvers. The JPoint sight is a good product, but I like the Burris FastFire III better. Add a $7 "Jpoint to Docter" adapter to your JP base and a Burris FFIII will drop right on.

The Jpoint mount has held up to hundreds of rounds of 454C in my SRH's and thousands in 44mag SBH's. Dog will hunt.

Burris FastFire III is rated to 1000 G's and they have held up well on 12ga. 3 1/2 inch mag. and .500 S&W. I have 3 of them now. Weigh less than an ounce, the size of your thumb, and good battery life.
Around $230. I believe the mount needed for Ruger scallop base is the #410332, mount is $40.

The Weigatinny no-drill mount works fine, I have one on a 7.5" Redhawk with a Leupold scope, but it's rather bulky for a micro-sight like the Burris FastFire III.

The Weigand D&T mount is a better option for scoped or C-more/Ultradot mounting. It's more secure than the No-Drill version, and less bulky.

For Micro-sights, the JP is the best option.

The Burris 410332 is a solid mount, but it does ride a little higher than the JP, and of course, farther forward. For holstering, and for maximal FOV, the rear-sight position offered by the JP mount has advantages.

I love my Burris FastFire III. I have two of them with 3moa dots. I had one on a MK III Hunter since the FFIII came out.

Earlier this year I put one on my SBH Hunter using the Ruger mount. I am totally sold on it. I can hold well under 5" six shot groups at 50 yards free hand, and can keep all my shots on an 8" plate at 100 yards with it.

I managed a head shot on a doe this past Monday morning at 55 yards (all I could see was the head and front shoulder, and it was about to run away).

On the SBH the sight looks akward, but mounts in a better spot on the Super Redhawk.

I have at least 400 full power rounds down range, and have never re-tightened it or had to re-adjust anything (other than vertical changes when changing loads).

Just to add fuel to the fire....I was talking to a fella yesterday about what he puts on his 1911 for Bullseye 2700 competition. He uses the Ultradot Red Dot.

I asked him why he does not use a reflex scope and he says that a tube dot scope allows for greater adjustment and is more repeatable.

Anyway, just more fuel for thought.
