We'll just have to wait for one od the smart fellers to come along.
there is no parrallax, as ther is no magnification involved with this type of red dot.
when sighting in, keep the target in the center of the glass and adjust the red dot until you hit what you are aiming at.
the red dots are nice for fast target aquisition, both eyes open QCB style shooting and short range target as well. the variable brightness dot offers you the oppurtunity to not get distracted by the glare of the dot, and is nice for night varminting.
i have a similar one, (this style is basically tasco, bsa, and a half a dozen other names printed on the side) on a .357 revolver. held true for years. then i put it on a shotgun 835 3.5" dead coyote loads, still stays true.
i'm about to buy another (tasco offers them with lifetime warranties) to put back on the .357
