      Comments about Vixen Red Dot Finder:

      I have a dovetail finder scope base on my scope but was frustrated looking for a finder scope with one. I wish it was metal because I worry about snapping it off in transport. And I wish it had more reticle patterns. It's very easy to aim with the big lock screw.
