Yup, that's what I did, I put an AimPoint Micro H-2 Red Dot Sight w/Standard Mount, 2 MOA on my 327 TRR8

I'd like to be able to set the sight for lower 1/3 cowitness. I called Optics Planet and he showed me a mount, but I am not sure if he understood that I want it for a revolver, even though i stated that it was for a revolver.

Is there a mount that will position this sight for lower 1/3 witness?

What there be any benefit to raising the red-dot sight so the open sights are visible? Would this allow the eye to acquire the red-dot?

Those revolvers look good with the optics. Have been considering but have no knowledge of type of rail mount or decent red dot. Any suggestions would be appreciated.:)

I mounted an Eotech to my TR8 and although it "looks" gawdy..it is an absolute joy to shoot and I can't miss with the gun. I doubt you will find a mount that is lower than the stock S&W unit.

I understand, thank you.

That is a nice sight picture.

My friend has a bias against revolvers, as do many people. Thank you for your observation.

I have an Aimpoint red dot. If the gun can have a Pcatinny rail installed, you can install a red-dot. That is the extent of my knowledge at this point

After a few hours at the range today, I am getting better using the red-dot. So, it seems mechanical adjustments would not be beneficial in this case.

I watched a video that touted the benefits of seeing the open sights along with the red-dot. The video was about red-dot and not gun specific so I applied that concept to pistol shooting, now I see that it does not apply to pistols.

I mounted a Red Scope on my M-17-4. It proved to be very accurate.....just like my shots were guided by a laser. It kind of removed any challenge from my shooting.......so I sold both, to couple of members, several years ago.

I'm back to shooting my current .38 caliber revolvers, 9mm.and .22 pistols, with iron sights. I don't Target Shoot anymore.......I concentrate on self defense type shooting. It doesn't require pinpoint accuracy. I am happy to just hit the target in rapid shooting. 😏 Bob
