I mounted one of these with two 30mm rings on my Encore pistol. I am convinced Aimpoint and Trijicon have the best illumination :

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

Have you considered an Aimpoint Micro?

This is a DW with a Vortex SPARC, It worked ok but was awkward as it changed the balance of the gun.  If i was going to run a red dot full time, the aimpoint micro would be my only choice.

I,m in 100% agreement with the Aimpoint micro,I love mine.Don't over look the Doctors red dot that SWFA is blowing out.I have mine on my 1911,22lr kit & I think it's about the most underated scope out there.

I recently bought the same hunter model and I put a 2x leupold on it,works real good. I have tried red dots on other handguns and it just drives me nuts because it is impossible to stop the dot from quivering that's why I chose a scope,it may still quiver but ya don't notice it like the dot.

Danny-L guess you are just going to have to lay off the Hooch when using a red dot Wink

I have an aimpoint on my DW375SM it was flawless but it seemed like I could never get the dot perfectly still although it almost always hit my poa.

Is it possible to mount the Docter onto a K-fram S&W? It seem that the Docter Red Dot has a proprietary mounting system.

I have been very pleased with the Aimpoint Micro H1 2MOA I have on my S&W Stealth Hunter .44 magnum:

I have a Leupold 2X on my Redhawk. If I could find a lightweight solution to mount the Micro, I would do it.
200 yards is a far poke from a Ruger revolver, though. I shoot mine at 100 and it is generally around 3-4 inches.

I was fortunate in that the Stealth Hunter comes standard with a Weaver rail, so it made mounting the Aimpoint very easy.  It holds zero well when you dismount it and remount it too.

I have a Ruger SB Bisley Hunter on order, and I figure I will mount a scope on that, since it also comes with a built-in rail and is supplied with 1" mounts.  That's actually why I am in this forum today, doing research.  No easy way to mount the Aimpoint on the Bisley Hunter.

I found that Burris makes a Ruger to Weaver adapter, so I ordered a set.  With that I should be able to mount the Aimpoint on the Bisley.  I hope.

I mounted an Aimpoint T-1 to my Colt Anaconda 44 mag.
LOVE IT & I'm ordering a T-2 to replace an EO Tech EXP2-2 on my AR. My older eyes don't like the EO as much.file:///C:/Users/aduncan/Pictures/pers/toys/Anaconda%20-%20.25%20Copy.JPG

Let me try this again. I mounted an Aimpoint T-1 to my Colt Anaconda 44 mag.

Depending on your  planned carry method if size of the Aimpoint is an issue also look at something like the Trijicon RMRs.  For me red dot sights are a lot easier and quicker to use on handguns in the field than magnified LER scopes with their very limited fields of view.

Pinkvapor, you need 50 post's to edit. 

Welcome to Optics Talk and that Colt is SWEET. 

This is an old thread, but I still LOVE LOVE LOVE my T-1 Micro even more now then when I posted in this thread.

Do you need magnification?

If not I agree with the others, aimpoint micro.

Aimpoint is probably still the king of red dots, but there are lot of new ones out there that are very good as well.

I have been playing with Meopta Meosight II and I really like it.
