Noob question please bear with me...

If I put the Bushnell Trophy 1x32 Riflescope Matte T Dot 730132P on my bushmaster would I be able to use my rear flip up buis and fsp? Do I need a special mount to use it?

Thanks!!

 

The Irons could be used as a back-up. I have a T-Dot mounted on my Son's .22 and have not tried it with an Ar with irons, but the T-Dot can be removed quickly to use the irons when necessary. Are you set on the T-Dot? Have you looked into the EOTech's?

The Bushnell 'T' dot doesn't sit high enough on the top rail, but you can mount it as far forward as it can go and fit a BUIS or get a riser to make it sit higher. I had mine mounted all the way forward and it worked great.

Welcome to the Armory!

Thanks,

After reading all the reviews for the bushnell I just thought for the money I couldn't beat it. I have looked at the EOTechs and the bushnell HOLOsight but is the price differance worth it between the 2 styles of optics?

Ye ask, Ye shall receive.

 

Here is a quick first impression review of the Bushnell Trophy 1x32 Red Dot scope.

 

I ordered the Demo model from Opticsplanet.net. The price was good and I've heard a lot of good things about them, so I just had to give it a shot. I appreciate it's design, it's similar to the ACOG in looks at a fraction of the price. I like the looks a lot better then the normal tube style red dots. Enough of my dribble, onto the review and pics.

 

The first thing I like about the scope is the fact that you don't have rings and such to mess with. The base is integrated into the scope which makes installation a snap. For some this might be an issue because it has less flexibility in height choices, though a riser will raise it up if you so desire. The scope feels solid, some may even consider it heavy compared to the more expensive models. I don't have a scale to weigh it, but the manufacture says it weighs 15.6 oz.

There are three knobs on the scope. The left side houses the CR2032 battery. The screw cover unscrews by hand and can be tightened down with the edge of a coin. This knob also adjusts the color and brightness. It's a rotary dial that can turn either way. 0 is off, 5 is brightest. The numbers are color coded green and red to represent the dot color. The unscrewing the top dial cover reveals the elevation knob. It would be tough to turn by hand, and coin would work better. The windage adjustment is one the right side and is setup the same way. I haven't tried adjusting them yet. I'll deal with that when I get to the range and work on dialing the scope in.

 

The glass looks tinted when you look though it, but is very clear. The red is REALLY bright and should be more then sufficient on sunny days. The green is optimal for low light conditions and can barely be seen if at all around bright light on low. I also like the fact that it has sights that are integrated into the top of the scope. I don't know how often I'd actually use them since they seem a little unnatural due to the height. I guess they'd be getting then nothing if you didn't have BUIS.

The two thumb screws for the mount are big enough to get a decent grip, and just use a flat head screw driver or a coin to loosen or tighten them down. The scope is a little on the long side but I was able to squeeze it onto the flat top with the rear sight intact and upright. It hangs off of the front of the flat top, and is close to the delta ring, but does not make contact. This maybe an issue if/when I attempt to remove the hand guard. A quad rail that extends all the way to the flat top would fit the bill nicely with this scope. I know what's next on my list.

The scope with the stock mount allows me to co-witness with the sights around center. This works for me. Obviously, this scope has 1x magnification, and can easily be acquired with both eyes open. I don't have a magnifier to test, so that will have to wait until later.. Maybe.

Over all, I'm happy with this scope. I can't wait to take it to the range and give it a shoot (no pun intended.) Obviously, I can't tell you how durable it is, or whether or not it holds zero. That is yet to be seen, but so far so good. I'll update this with a range report as soon as I can get some time at the range.

 

That's all I have.. I can try to answer any questions if you have any. Thanks for reading.
