Red dot sight or green dot sight? That is a question. However, there is no certain answer of which one is better because both are useful for different applications, shooters should choose wisely based on their shooting scenarios and environment. Then when to choose red dot sight or green dot sight? Let’s first talk about the pros and cons of each.
Pros and cons of red dot
The red dot is very common in the market and can meet the vast majority of shooting scenarios, it has a mature technology and the price is relatively more competitive compared with the green dot. The red rays of light have a very high wavelength and a small frequency, so the red dot can strike your eye fast and accelerate your speed of target acquisition; Red has a sharp contrast with dark colors like blue or black, at night or in a low-light environment the red dot is very visible, that’s also why the red dot is more suitable for night visions as they are mostly green display and have a low illumination, so the red dot stands out easily.
However, in a bright environment, the visibility of red dot would be greatly reduced, so the red dot would be too weak to acquire targets; and if you have astigmatism or other eye issues, then the red dot may get distorted or blurred easily, affecting your shooting experience.
Pros and cons of green dot
The green dot is less common in the market but wins popularity quickly and it certainly has a place in the tactical industry now. Human eyes see green better than they see red, so in daylight, we see green better in depth, brightness, and sharpness; for shooters with astigmatism, it’s easier to shoot with a green dot rather than a red dot as the green color put less strain on the eye.
However, if the shooter is in a jungle or bushy environment, green dot would be a bad idea as it can be easily washed out by the environment; Likewise, it is not ideal for night vision due to the green NV background.
Therefore, red dot catches the eye faster and would be more suited for faster target acquisition in low-light shooting and when observing a target in a green environment; Green dot is easier to see, highly visible to the human eye in daylight or bright environment, more suitable for shooters with eye issues, it is also the superior color selection for night time use.
