Red dot...astigmatism

Post by Big Mac on Sun Jun 09, 2013 11:54 pm

I will probably sell my eotech xps2... Used it twice and due to my astigmatism it looks like a big smear. I've heard acog is better for astigmatism. Anyone have experience with this issue?

This sounds really familiar. I think someone else brought this up.

I have astig. also. I keep red dots as dim as possible, which helps. I also have low-power or variable scope sights on several of my rifles. ;)

I have astigs in both eyes and most electronic red dots are a mess for me even though I own 4 Aimpoints, 2 Docters, 3 RMR's & 2 MRDS's. I can turn the intensity down and that will reduce the blooming effect slightly but the dot image is still pretty crappy. I found that all Trijicons with the etched reticles are infinitely better for me so I have started collecting ACOG's. I now have 2 ACOG's and one Accupoint and all of the reticles from cross hairs to chevron to circle-dot are crystal clear in all conditions for my eyes.

Maybe check out the Leupold Prismatic scope?

I took a look through one at SHOT Show. A bit pricey. I'd rather get an aimpoint T1. But I don't have astigmatism issues.
