Hello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com. It is titled 'Viridian GDO 22 Review: A Green "Red Dot"?' and can be found at https://www.thearmorylife.com/viridian-gdo-22-review/.
Either way you're going to see 2 dots and your laser is going to be zero'ed much closer. I have a red dot and a green Viridian HS1 on an AR pistol. The red dot is zero'ed at 50 yards and the HS1 is zero'ed at 20 yards. And really that laser could be zero'ed at 30 feet. The fact is regardless of if it's a red or green laser, outdoors it's only going to be visible for about 10-15 yards. So I zero them at indoor distances since that's really it's only viable function. So outdoors at any kind of distance you're not even going to see the laser. Indoors it's going to be the one closest to height of bore, i.e. the one on the bottom.I have the Viridian lasers on two of my ARs but I have Red Dots that are red and the Viridian is a green laser. I am curious if you use a Green Dot site with a green laser can that be visually confusing especially under stress and while moving quickly? I ask because my eyes prefer green to red, but don't want to mix the laser and dot site if the same color is a challenge. I assume shooting at the range will not be a problem but like I said under stress and moving may be where it becomes more challenging.
Correct.Excellent I did not think about it that way so indoors, which would be where I would use the laser most the lower of the two dots even if both green would be the laser.
Yep. Because like I said you will not be able to see that laser dot at 50 yards outside. My comment though is still relevant. If you are outdoors you will be using your red dot, there is no need to activate the laser. And if you are using it indoors you don't really need to look through the red dot. That's actually the point of having a laser.Yes, but I was incorrectly thinking of zeroing them both for the same distance of 50 yards, so the dots would converge but you are right the laser should not be more than 20 yards, so, there will definitely be two separate dots.
