Rifle Sighting Systems

There are many different sighting systems available for use with rifles. However, each system has its own pros and cons, and is used for different purposes. To help you figure out which one is best for you, Proguns.com has compiled a list of each and its features.

One sighting system is the telescopic sight, commonly known as a scope. Scopes come in a huge variety of sizes and styles, but they function in much the same way. Organized according to optical magnification and the objective lens diameter, an example of a scope designation is 10×50. The larger the lens, the more light is let in and the easier it is to see. However, the size can affect ease of use and transport, so it’s necessary to find a balance suitable for you and your needs.

Many rifles also come with iron sights, which are less accurate than scopes but also much less bulky. This type of sighting system consists of notches, one at the beginning and one at the end of the barrel of the rifle. The shooter only has to line up the notches to aim. Iron sights are good for situations in which fast response is necessary, such as hunting game birds.

Red dot sights are similar to scopes in that the shooter views the target through a lens, but this sighting system provides an image on the target, usually a red dot. This type of sighting system is often used by military groups because it’s fast and easy to aim, and works well in low light situations when the target is less visible.
