Re: Ruger Mark III Red Dot
Well, you kind of get what you pay for, but that being said, even paintball red dots tend to hold up for a suprisingly long time with the low recoil of a Mark III. A UAG Tactical "CQB" is under $40 and will certainly give you some good service. I know guys who've spent up to $120 who didn't feel they get much more than the UAG they replaced gave them. You can spend less, but I wouldn't.
A great one like the ultra dot Match dot is over $200. There is no comparison between the two. It's Kia vs. Mercedes AMG, so for what you get the Ultra Dot is a bargain, but if you aren't dead serious, it's probably not worth it.
Some of the combat competitions, which have nothing to do with your or my Mark IIIs, are now letting unmagnified optics compete head to head with iron sights.
