At the Range: Bushnell First Strike Reflex Red Dot Sight

Bushnell’s First Strike Reflex Red Dot is a low-profile dot sight that’s waterproof, fogproof, and extremely lightweight. Because of its small size, I recently installed and fired the sight on a Rock River Operator to see how the First Strike worked on close-in targets, possibly to run in tandem with a scope for 3-Gun rifle events. One nice aspect of the First Strike is that there’s no set eye relief, so I could move the sight and the riser to get the head position I wanted. I eventually decided (for now) to use the First Strike as my primary optic on the RRA.
