Red dot Sighting
I have a Nc Star 3-9x scope on my AR and on top it has a red dot but I cant seem to get the red dot sighted. It is either too high or shooting the dirt for somereason I cant get it to go down range is there a way to do it other than getting a bore sight?

Sounds like you got a bad red dot , Send it back and try again , NCS isnt know for the best quality

If the mount is tight and the impact point is changing that much with the rifle sand bagged and benched. As Havoc stated you certainly have a defective sight. I would contact the manufacturer and advise them. If it is new they should repair or replace it at no cost. If used, they might charge you a few bucks to repair it! *But for no more than the unit costs I would get an estimate from them when you send it in before I authorized the start of the repair.

ok sounds like a plan!

actually I went today and got a laser bore sight just to make sure I am doing everything right! I am gonna try that before I send anything back.

Do your scope and/or irons hold zero? If so, they're much better than a bore sight. (Of course none of them would help much if you have a loose or defective RDS).

There are parallax issues for RDS. Try and boresight it as far as possible. 15 yards should be good enough.

I'd also look at mounting your RDS at 45 degrees off the rail on your upper receiver.
