Review of Tactical Made 3 MOA 1x20mm Basic Micro Red Dot Sight And Tactical Made 3 MOA 1x20mm Advanced Micro Red Dot Sight

 

Micro red dots are the gold standard of the optics world for, well, basically any AR platform. With so many out there, it’s tough to pick which one is right for you. Before we break down the Tactical Made 3 MOA Micro Red Dots Sights now available at 80-lower.com, let’s go over what you might want in a good red dot for your rifle or pistol:


First, it has to be lightweight. The AR was meant to be easy on the arms, and adding more weight is counter to that advantage. Second, it has to be small – the same logic applies to the venerable black rifle (and especially those pistols). Third, it should be rugged. The AR is a tough-as-nails tack driver, and the sight that lets you drive those tacks should be up to the task of rapid fire and running and gunning. And of course, the micro dot of your choice should provide some good bangs for the buck – that’s why we’re here, right?


Tactical Made 3 MOA 1x20mm Basic Micro Red Dot Sight

The Tactical Made 3 MOA Basic Micro Red Dot is an excellent choice for the first-timer AR owner who wants something that just works well, without breaking the bank. The Tactical Made Micro Sight has plenty going for it that puts it on par with other, much more expensive options:


Features of the Tactical Made 3 MOA 1x20mm

  •         Recoil resistance up to 500G’s
  •         Multi-coated, high-contrast amber lens
  •         Waterproof and fog-proof
  •         Nitrogen-filled casing
  •         Sealed O-rings prevent dust and moisture penetration
  •         6061 T6 aluminum construction
  •         11 illumination settings (high- and low-light conditions)
  •         Infinite eye relief
  •         Standard Weaver/Picatinny rail
  •         50,000-hour battery life

The Tactical Made 3 MOA easily stands up to the task of functioning as a rugged little red dot with a mil-spec matte black anodized finish and complete water- and fog-proof rating. Thanks to that 6061 aluminum housing, the Tactical Made 3 MOA graces the scales at just 3.6 ounces, or about 1/5th of a pound.


One-MOA clicks make a 100-yard zero a breeze with no calculations necessary, while the 20mm lens and 3 MOA dot provide plenty of field of view at close and medium ranges. Standing just 1.1” when mounted, it takes up little space and its unlimited eye relief makes parallax error a thing of the past. Analog adjustment knobs keep zeroing simple with an adjustment range of plus or minus 35 minutes of angle.


As you can read from customer reviews, the Tactical Made 3 MOA 1x20mm Basic Micro Red Dot Sight gets the job done just as well as any micro red dot that costs five times more. But what if you wanted some more bells and whistles?

Tactical Made 3 MOA 1x20mm Advanced Micro Red Dot Sight

If the Basic Micro Red Dot Sight is the perfect range sight, then Tactical Made’s Advanced version of their 1x20mm Micro Red Dot is the perfect choice for gunners who want something guaranteed to take direct hits. The Advanced Micro Red Dot Sight boasts all the same features as the Basic:


Features of the Tactical Made 3 MOA 1x20mm

  •         Recoil resistance up to 500G’s
  •         Multi-coated, high-contrast amber lens
  •         Waterproof and fog-proof
  •         Nitrogen-filled casing
  •         Sealed O-rings prevent dust and moisture penetration
  •         6061 T6 aluminum construction
  •         8 illumination settings (high- and low-light conditions)
  •         Infinite eye relief
  •         3 MOA dot
  •         Standard Weaver/Picatinny rail
  •         50,000-hour battery life

Where the Advanced and Basic part ways rests in the physical body and mode of adjustments. The Advanced Micro Red Dot Sight features knurled and more rugged dust covers all adjustment knobs, and it ditches the analog brightness adjustments in favor of push-button plus and minus adjustments.


The Advanced Micro Red Dot is also a tad larger and features a reinforced housing, while weighing just 0.4 ounces more, coming in at 4.0 ounces on the dot. Once mounted, the Advanced Sight measures just 2”, ensuring your field of view is never obstructed. Adjustments are also kicked up to plus or minus 45 minutes of angle, providing greater reach and accuracy at longer distances.
