Pearland Optics And Sights For Sale

Streamlight TLR-7 A

A sight helps you line up the muzzle of your firearm with your eye. Sights are most common in firearms that fire a single projectile, such as rifles and handguns, compared to shotguns that shoot a pattern of shots. A simple pointing bead is usually all you get with a shotgun. At Orcus Firearms, we have different types of Pearland optics and sights for sale.



Our Different Types of Sights


  1. Simple/Iron sights: These are simple sights made up of 2 components, namely the front and rear aiming pieces. They get the name “iron” sights from the fact that they are usually formed by rugged metal. These sights may be adjustable, fixed, or marked for windage, elevation, or target speed. Open sights have notches, while closed sights have aperture. You require considerable skill to hold proper eye position and simultaneously focus on the front sight, the rear sight, and the target, meaning these sights are not ideal for new gun owners.
  2. Optical sights: If you want an enhanced image, consider going for our optics and sights for sale in Pearland TX. These sights feature an aligned pattern or aiming point that is superimposed onto the target, usually at the same focal plane.
  3. Telescopic sights: These sights feature a referencing pattern for accurate aiming. They use the refracting principle.
  4. Reflector sights: These are non-magnifying optical devices that allow you to look through the glass element to see a reflection of an aiming point that is illuminated. One example of this is the red dot sight, which provides a red dot as the aim point. Most of our red dot sights use collimating optics, with the focus being given by light-emitting diodes (LEDs). These scopes are nearly parallax-free, making them ideal for inexperienced gun users. They are popular in hunting, police, military, and target shooting applications.

Why You Need Sighting in Your Scope


  • Longer range shots: The magnification you get allows you to shoot targets that are far away.
  • Increased accuracy: The accuracy of your shot will not be limited by distance.
  • Improved confidence: Whether you are hunting or in a competition, you will have greater confidence knowing you can consistently hit the target.
  • Improved safety: If you are hunting at night, a scope, especially if it has night vision capabilities, will ensure you hit the current target.
  • Better for ‘old eyes’: If your eyesight is not what it used to be, iron sights may not be effective. Optical sights will allow you to easily align the target for effective hits.
  • Faster target acquisition: Your eyes will be instantly drawn to the aiming point, irrespective of the lighting condition, allowing you to take shots quicker.
  • Some sights, such as red dot sights, allow you to shoot with both eyes open. This is not possible with iron sights. These makes such sights ideal in self-defense scenarios because you will not lose track of what is around you.



Considerations When Choosing Between Pearland Optics and Sights for Sale


  1. Magnification: Different types of sights have different magnification strengths. If you are target-shooting, the rule of thumb is 1-4x magnification for 100 yards, 58x up to 200 yards, and 9-12x beyond 200 yards.
  2. Fixed power versus variable power: Fixed power scopes only use 1 magnification, such as 2×30, while variable power scopes use more than 1 magnification, like 3-9×40.
  3. Objective lens: This is the lens responsible for transmitting light that is located at the end of the scope. Bigger objective lenses give you clearer and brighter images.
  4. Scope reticules: This is the aiming point you see when you look through the scope.


Other important considerations are:


  • Parallax
  • Reliable elevation and windage turrets
  • Focal plane (first focal plane or second focal plane)
  • Lens coating
