On a rifle that will be used in combat is a scope needed? We all know that a scope helps when hunting and target shooting,but what about a battlefield? And if a scope is needed should it be a Red Dot? Or something ealse? What do you think?????
I've always felt that a battle rifle should not be scoped. I think good,sturdy peep sights should be used,not sure about a red dot,never used one,don't like the idea of having to rely on batteries or electronics. Keep it simple,have a rifle that can be effective to at least 800 yds. and learn to shoot with open sights at that range. My .02
I would have to agree with the majority, a scope, even a holosight can get knocked off it's zero. It will happen at the worst possible time. I don't think I would want to be re-zeroing my scope on somebody who was actively engaging me in combat!
