About the NcSTAR 1x30 Red Dot Sight
The NcSTAR 30mm red dot sight is a great entry level red dot sight for your airsoft gun. Use it to speed up your aim down sights time or if you can't see too well with your iron sights. The body is aluminum so these are pretty durable. You will find that most of these red dot sights will be similar in form and function, but some will cost more because they have additional features like different reticles and colors. This simple one does the job as intended just as good as the more expensive airsoft red dot sights.
Since you can aim with both eyes open you will be able to see what is going on around you and react faster. Another great benefit is red dot sights are naturally parallax free. What this means is you can aim without having your head/eyes perfectly be behind the sight. You can move your head any which way and as long as you can see the dot, it will be on target. Red dot sights are probably the biggest game changing upgrade you can do externally and you will see the benefits right away. Some people keep their iron sights on and deployed so you have backup sights that are active in case your red dot sight runs out of juice. We recommend getting a lens protector to protect your investment as well.

Q: What is a red dot sight?
A: A red dot sight is a type of non-magnified scope you look through to allow you to aim quickly.
Q: Aren't all scopes supposed to be magnified? Why no magnification?
A: The concept behind the red dot sight is that it has no magnification but casts a simple red dot which you will aim with instead of your iron sights. To aim with a red dot sight is faster and easier for players of any skill levels since all you do is cast the dot onto your target. This is unlike the traditional iron sights which you have to line up and takes more time and skill to use. All you have to do is put the red dot on your target. You can aim with both your eyes open which is faster and gives you more situational awareness. Red dot sights are great for people who don't have the best vision too. Noe: this does not emit or shoot a laser outside of the scope onto the target, the dot is only emitted internally within the sight.
