I've two questions for all of you.
First is I'm thinking about an inexpensive red dot for my 15-22 and I'm considering the Barska 30mm. It is $39 at Gander and $33 online. I've played with it at Gander and like it. Lightweight and not a lot of cashola.
Do, those of you that have it, used it, etc., you like it. Is it a good bang for the small buck? What do/don't you like about it? Amazon.com: BARSKA Red Dot 30mm Riflescope: Sports & Outdoors
I have a Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40 and absolutely love it but I'd like something to use for 50yds and less firing standing, moving, etc. and while I can and do use the Nikon I'd like something a bit lighter and easier.
Second: Will I love my zero when removing/replacing the Nikon. I'll leave it on the riser rail and while it is not a quick release it is easy enough to remove. I don't care about that. I do care about having to re sight it every time I remove/replace it.
Tell me about your experiences replacing one type of optical device with another.
