I got thinking, that if a scope is set at 1x than it would be parallax free at any range like a red dot sight. However you have to have the reticle focused along with the image, and I don't know if the dot requires focusing on a red dot sight, because I never explored the category very much. It also would seem that there would be an infinite amount of eye relief???


the scope that I am referring to is a nikon buckmaster 1x20mm.


anyone that can clear things up for me would be a great help, it is bothering me.

It seems like unlimited  eye relief on a 1x, I have a Burris 1x and it is useable from 4 inches to 24 inches where the 1x Nikon is useable from 4.3 inches to 13 inches.  The red dots that are 1x do not require focusing.


These 1x scopes are often used on blackpowder rifles ( no magnification is required in some states) and are a viable choice for dangerous game guns as they come on target fast at close range, they also work well for scout rifles mounted forward and for handguns. Mine is on a 45-70 Encore pistol.
