No magnification. Just a cheap $40 BSA piece-of-Polosi.

I ended up mounting it about mid-way. I confirmed a lesson that I already knew about optics...you get what you paid for. At 100 yards, the dot just about covers a 6" target, and the verilux <sp> is so bad that I am confident that I can hit a chest cavity, well at least an arm or stomach if I aim at the center of the chest.:mad:

I will definitely be getting a real scope for that gun, maybe a quality 3x9 or something, and this one will be moving to SWMBO's mini-14.

Don't tell her it sucks though...I'm going to convince her I'm doing her a favor, because it would be perfect for her gun,;) which is why I will have to suffer and find a new scope for my gun.:D
That's awesome!!! piece of polosi... I'm using that!

because you were wondering: green is much easier for our eyes to see while red is more difficult. This is because green takes up much more of the visible spectrum (in the middle)... at least for humans... and red takes up much less of our visible spectrum (at a far end) and because thats how our cones in our eyes have developed. the wavelengths of light are most commonly displayed in a rainbow where the colors are ROYGBIV, red orange yello green blue indigo violet. In the light the largest sensitivity of our eyes is around 550nm while in the dark the largest sensitivity is around 510nm and the wavelengths classified as green are 520-570nm as you can see our eyes are inherently sensitive to the green wavelengths.

that is the difference btwn green sights and red sights. why do you think night vision goggles portray everything in green? Plus green laser sights/dots sights look more bad-a than red ones
