Big Dot site issue question
« on: September 08, 2017, 02:42:07 PM »
So I bought the RAMI to use as one of my edc guns recently.

I need reading glasses and had heard this big dot sight system was great for that issue. 

Bought the sites, put them and off to the range I went. 

I'm having a great deal of issue with the site picture and lining it all up. 

I've heard you're supposed to make it look like a lollipop. 

But in doing that I feel like I am tipping the nose of the gun way high in order to set the dot in the rear cradle. 

The shots don't seem to be hitting all that high, but they also don't seem to be that accurate either.

I consider myself a pretty good shot and I'm struggling with this set up way more then I ever have on any gun. 

I usually can pick up a new gun to me and after 2-3 rounds put out a real tight group at 10-15 yards strong handed and standing.

This set up, not so much. 

Any input would be appreciated. 

I ran about 2-220 rounds through the gun and still had same issues at the end. 

It's a very different picture and I'm wondering if the learning curve is that great.

Thanks.

I don't think you've got operator error at all. I think it's the sight. I always thought that the "Big Dot" sights were for ease of use and would give you "minute of bad guy" accuracy. I don't think that they were ever designed for applications beyond about 6-10 feet.

Otto,

I agree that in that application they would work well.

I suppose I am used to traditional sites. 

I'm gonna go anther few hundred rounds before I make final decision. 

Thanks
