read my other post. I said I prefer a red dot with a x3 on a flip mount. In the dark it's red dot with a flash light. If I got to reach out to touch something it's light off x3 in place red dot on low.
Agency humm? Do any of you guys have back up sights co-w with your red dot? I'm sure you do. Do they operate with there back ups deployed and there red dot on? I bet not. Try it one day see how well it works.
