Re: red dot scope
all red dots have some parralax, like scopes. But at ranges under 50 yards it is of no importance. And by the way your head lines up automatically in the middle of the sight picture.
You do need to pick if you want 1x or 2x. 1x is zero magnification, 2x is 2 power. Some have a variety of different colors and shapes for the "dot" like a cross or 'x'.
I have two on shotguns, one on my spring turkey shotgun and one on the shotgun I use for NY deer hunting. also have one on my x-box. I've had one about 10 years the other about 5. All are Tru-Glo all work perfect. all are 1x, because I want the largest field of view possible.
I have used them extensively and they are rugged. I use the one for hunting the swamps in south florida for boar. They are best in low light level (no surprise). the batteries they use are really vaifly inecpensive and last a long time. The first one I bought back about 15 years ago was a Bushnell, it ate batteries and they were outragously expensive. Check the battery size, and the battery cost before buying. I know Bushnell now also uses an inexpensive battery, but it is a consideration especially if you need a wierd hearing aid battery in the boonies.
CR2032 are the batteries to use, if they are for your unit. cheap, long lasting and walmart and everyone has them. I tape an extra on the side of my red-dots.
