Hey guys, I'm looking to put a either small red dot(tube type) or a holographic type sight on my Colt Anaconda for hunting purposes, and limit my shots to 100 yards max. I need something with a dot that is small enough that it wont completely cover a deers vitals at 100 yards. I'm considering a Burris fastfire II, the two ultradot holographic sights, a bushnell holosight if I can find one, or the vortex sparc or strykfire. I'd like to keep the cost around 200-250 bux. Any advice, or other brands I should look at?

44s destroy cheap ones
I have ran an aimpoint t1 and they work but are more than you want to spend

The ultradots hold up

I am trying a new LEUPOLD delta point and really like it
Don't know if they have a mount for the colt or not

Plus one on Aimpoint.  I also have an ultradot and it is so so but the Aimpoint is awesome.

i had an ATN on my 44 lever, and it was great. never lost a zero, and i was constantly taking it off and on. but it's on a lever gun, not a pistol.

I'd love to have an aimpoint, but it's just not in the budget right now. SVT, your review of the SPARC led me to this sight, and I'm strongly considering it. I just wanted some other opinions before I spent the money.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

Get the Aimpoint Micro, as soon as funds allow, my friend. An incredible site, to be sure. 


If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

I say save for the Aimpoint, 44. has a substantial amount of recoil and needs a quality sight in order to take the abuse.
