Which red dot is easier to put on and take off for Springfield XD-M Elite OSP Tactical 5.25"?

it's always 2 screws I guess? SCRD-40


Does frenzy 1x22x26 fit in VWPM-01? I want this frenzy for my tokyo marui glock (airsoft). Is not fit, do you know a mount for it?

Hi friend, The mount has a Doctor footprint, can fit Frenzy basic red dot sights (SCRD-19II, SCRD-F19II, SCRD-G19II, SCRD-35, SCRD-40)


How come the reflex sight does not hold a group of hits?

ØThe reflex sight does not hold a group of hits at the first time shooting

Please examine the factors below:

lBe sure that all screws on the rifle’s action are properly tightened.

lBe sure the rifle barrel and action are clean and free of excessive oil or copper fouling.

lMaintain a good shooting technique and use a solid rest.

lSome rifles and ammunition don’t work well together—try different ammunition and see if accuracy improves.

lBe careful, the reflex sight may be with a “parallax issue” if not adjusted well.

 

ØThe reflex sight does not hold a group of hits after using for a while

Please check:

lYour rifle and caliber (whether the rifles caliber is too large and the rifle has too much recoil )

lYour shooting distance (whether the shooting distance is too far away from the set hit point)

 

P.S. whether its at first-time shooting or not, you should always check the point of impact’s spread deviation, and make adjustments accordingly.

 

Please check the upper factors and make some adjustments, if the reflex sight still cant hold a group of hits, please contact service@vectoroptics.com for support.


Is the new solar power red dot sight absolute co-witness or lower 1/3 co-witness?

Scrapper solar power red dot sights include two models: SCRD-SM45 and SCRD-SM46. SCRD-SM45 is lower 1/3 co-witness, which means that the red dot is over the iron sight; SCRD-SM46 is absolute co-witness, which means that the red dot coincides with the iron sight. (Please check the picture below for reference)

For maverick gen3 model or scrapper model. Can I use these reddots two eyes open? Are they true 1x?

Yes, both red dots for two eyes open, they are non-magnification sights, and scrapper with bigger lens and it is free parallax in high quality level.


2.Could the vector optics mavarick gen III stands the recoil of a 12 guage shotgun?

Hi friend, yes our Maverick series can stand the recoil of a 12 gauage shotgun


Do you happen to know if the Maverick has the same footprint as the T1-style red-dot?

Hi friend, yes our Maverick red dot can be used on the mount model


Does SCRD-D26 have motion sensor? Will it automatically shut off and turn on when I move the gun?

Hi friend, this model does have motion sensor, 30 min OFF if without any operation, any slight movement will light up immediately.


Pros and cons of absolute co-witness and lower 1/3 co-witness

Using Absolute co-witness, the red dot is always aligned with iron sight so you can react faster and more accurate when the target appears in your field of view, but the iron sight will block part of the field of view; Using Lower 1/3 co-witness can provide wider field of view and less interference ,but you need to change the line of sight when you need both red dot sight and iron sight. 

Absolute co-witness

Lower 1/3 co-witness

Pros:

² Shooters can react faster

² More accurate

Cons:

² the iron sight will block part of the field of view

Pros:

² Wider field of view

² Less interference

Cons

² you need to change the line of sight to coincide the red dot with the iron sight

Why does my red dot sight have a blurred aiming point?

lAstigmatism problem

If you have astigmatism, then you’d probably get different visual representation of what a red dot sight might look like. (Please check picture “A” for reference) 

image.png

lTry with the camera to catch the real visual representation

1. Put the red dot in front of the Box in a close distance

2. Camera focus on the “Lens”

3. Camera focus on the “Box”

(Please check picture “B” for reference)

Why doesn’t my red dot illuminate on Maverick?

lBattery issue

Please try different brand batteries of CR2032 3.0V. Sometimes the red dot does not turn on when you put new battery inside, but it turns on normally after you put different brand battery inside.

lPoor contact issue

Please try to pull the metal contact to see if this will help? Check below picture “A” for reference.

Would you mind providing me below information?

#1 Shooting Distance

#2 The group result on shooting target paper (Or do you remember how much distance is from the point of impact to the point of aim , lower ? higher ? right ? left ?)

 

Also,there are many issues that can cause poor bullet grouping.

 Be sure that all screws on rifle’s action are

properly tightened.

 Be sure rifle barrel and action are clean and free of

excessive oil or copper fouling.

 Maintain a good shooting technique and use a solid rest.

 Some rifles and ammunition don’t work well together—

try different ammunition and see if accuracy improves.

 

It will be appreciated if you can go to the range to test again then make the feedback to us

 

Thank you

Why is the center dot of the red dot blurred?

Hello

 

Firstly a guy who suffers from astigmatism will get different visual representation of what a red dot sight might look like. (Please check picture “A” for reference that the source is from AT Tactical)

 

And the camera will catch the real visual representation.

Is it possible to take some photos to help check this issue ?

 

#1 Put the red dot in front of the Box in a close distance

#2 Camera focus on the “Lens”

#3 Camera focus on the “Box”

Hi, does SCRD-D26 have motion sensor? Will it automatically shut off and turn on when I move the gun?

Hi friend, this model does have motion sensor, 30 min OFF if without any operation, any slight movement will light up immediately.


For what purpose people are putting this on the scope? For driven hunt?

上传000.png

The fact of having the red dot on the scope, in my case of high magnification (x5-30), is to make it easier to be able to shoot a hunting animal if it comes very close to me. It is true that I have to raise my face a little, but I have the reference of where to rest it. So for close and fast shots, it does the job.

There are also other mounts that attach it directly to the tube, and it is not as high as in the picture.


Which red dot is easier to put on and take off for Springfield XD-M Elite OSP Tactical 5.25

it's always 2 screws I guess? SCRD-40


For maverick gen3 model or scrapper model. Can I use these reddots two eyes open? Are they true 1x?

Yes, both red dots for two eyes open, they are non-magnification sights, and scrapper with bigger lens and it is free parallax in high quality level.


what's the difference between Continental 8x (4 x 8 = 32) scope and 6x (5 x 6 = 30)?

8x zoom you have more magnification available range for lower power researching and higher power precision shooting, also optical performance 8x better than 6x , such as more clear and bright image


Why is Continental 4-32x56 SFP tactical model(SCOL-T51) more expensive than Continental 5-30x56 SFP tactical model(SCOL-47)?

The SCOL-T51 is the newest and top of line for SFP. Its 8x ( 4 x 8 = 32) scope while SCOL-47 is 6x ( 5 x 6 = 30). Also, T51 has better optics (ED lens).


Which one is better for close shots with the low 5x magnification?

With ffp scopes the reticle gets smaller as you lower the magnification and thicker as you increase it.

The more the ffp scope has zoom power the bigger the challenge will be for the manufacturer to have a reticle thick enough to be visible at lowest power and fine enough at the highest power. Here's where the reticle shape becomes really important.


Does frenzy 1x22x26 fit in VWPM-01? I want this frenzy for my tokyo marui glock (airsoft). Is not fit, do you know a mount for it?

Hi friend, The mount has a Doctor footprint, can fit Frenzy basic red dot sights (SCRD-19II, SCRD-F19II, SCRD-G19II, SCRD-35, SCRD-40)


What’s the difference between the Constantine vs Continental?

Hi friend, Continental is our top level optics, >90% light transmission with high optical performance and the most durability for hard conditions! Continental have 6x and 8x full line magnification range design for hunting and mid long range target shooting. If you have $$$$ enough budget just buy Continental don’t let you down! If you don’t have enough $$$ just select Constantine for low magnification hunting or sport shooting purposes with cost performance in optical and durability.


Could the vector optics mavarick gen III stands the recoil of a 12 guage shotgun?

Hi friend, yes our Maverick series can stand the recoil of a 12 gauage shotgun


What is the difference between Vector Continental 4-24x56 and Vector Continental 5-30x56? different lenses? different brightness looking at long distance?

Hi friend, Both are tracking properly, at the same magnification they both perform similarly. You have more elevation available on the 4-24 and also a bit more field of view.
