Pistol red dot sights are extremely popular for both competition and even concealed carry use. It gives you a quick and easy aiming point for fast and accurate shooting. The Vortex Viper red dot is designed specifically to withstand the recoil of being mounted to a handgun slide. It features a low-profile design that seamlessly mounts to your pistol slide without adding bulk or getting in the way while carrying it. In fact, this red dot pistol sight is durable enough to be used to rack the slide if the situation calls for it. Even better is the ability to co-witness with suppressor height iron sights that give you a fixed reference point when bringing the pistol up, so you can find the red dot faster. And if that wasn’t enough, it features a 6 MOA dot, which might sound too big but is in fact much better suited for pistol use where your will typically be shooting at short ranges. The larger red dot is extremely crisp, easy to find, and will give you the advantage on the competition line or when your life is on the line.
