Are there any adjustable parralax handgun scopes availalbe? I have a S&W 617, that I will be shooting mostly at an indoor range (20-50 yards). I'm afraid the 50 yard set ones will be too fuzzy at the closer distance.
 
BTW, I'm looking for a magnified scope for the longer distance, and not interested in a red dot sight for this particular gun.

Handgun scopes are set at very low magnification. Parallax and blur become more noticeable on higher magnification. IF you have one set at 50yards you should be good. I have never seen one with an adjustable parallax.

Can be used rifle scope with shorter eye relief and shoot with both hands.

I have a question, how big is parallax error in the case of handgunscope set at 75 yards (50 yard) shooting at a distance about 20 metres?

I believe that a very small lens and long eye relief to some extent suppresses the parallax error.

 

Perhaps eyepiece design will have an impact - how much will allow the eye to move sideways  off center (axis) of riflescope, or perhaps it depends on the exit pupil?

Thank you for your help Smile
