Don't know about a red dot. I had one on my AR 15 and didn't really like it. My eyes need magnification. I think a more traditional scope is best as it would look better on a western style gun than a red dot. Thanks for the suggestion though.

well understood .... for the ranges I customarily fire a handgun, a red dot is fine .... we have one on our Redhawk that does an outstanding job .... for longer ranges that I customarily enjoy shooting with a rifle, I need the magnification provided by a variable power scope

I finally got time to shoot my BBS in .45 Colt today. I shot some of the ammo provided by my local range and some "cowboy" loads I had bought for my ASM SAA. The range loads were very hot and shot well in the BBS, Groups were right at 3-4" at 25 yards with the iron sights (I could barely see the front sight). Scoped, this thing is gonna shoot outgtanding groups. BTW, I liked the gun so much that I ordered a BBS Carbine in .357 after I was done shooting for the day! The carbine will complement my new EMF-Pietta SAA in the same caliber. Love these Henrys!!

Thanks for the range report. Yup! That new carbine will be right at home with your SAA! I have my BBB .357 paired with a Taylors/Uberti SmokeWagon SAA. I usually take them to the range together. Shoot one, then the other. Repeat. Lots of shooting fun!

sounds good .... what brand and size scope are you considering .... looking forward to following your range reports and use impressions as you get better acquainted with your 45

Thanks guys!! Because of the holiday, I should get the gun this Friday and then it's the usual Crapifornia 10 day wait. I saw a nice Weaver 3x9 scope at Turners this weekend. $199.00 is the sale price. May just go for that.
