Red Dot for a 41 mag

Postby Sebastian777 » Thu Feb 19, 2015 8:16 pm

My dad has a 41mag that he's thinking about deer hunting with and is thinking about putting a red dot on it. The only one I know to recommend is one of the Burris Fastfires. Any other good options out there?

Well, he was open to the idea of a $250 Fastfire. I don't see $500 for an EOTech happening though.

my concern with the fast fire is if it will be able to handle the recoil of the .41. magnums are hard on red dots. my light research shows that trijicon products hold up well.

Got ya. I'll do a bit more research of my own on that. I've never shot it but he claims the 41 is pretty soft shooting for a magnum.

the recoil to the shooter might be "soft", but that is a subjective measure. id hate to see him drop $250 and have it destroyed after 30 rounds of heavy hunting loads.
