Why doesn't anyone make a small red dot sight? You know something like a 1/8 MOA dot...
I would really enjoy that on my pistols as long as it was low profile and universally mountable.
One for each revolver and one for each of my semi-autos would be wonderful.

I have a Meprolight RDS that is 1.7 MOA, and I actually prefer the smaller dot. I would take an even smaller dot, not 1/8th MOA but maybe a 1 MOA or .75 MOA. Anything over 2 MOA and all I see is a huge red starburst.

I'm not for sure, but I would think that would be hard to see for quick target acquisition. I run a Primary Arms https://www.primaryarms.com/primary-arms-advanced-micro-dot-with-push-buttons-and-up-to-50k-hour-battery-life-red-dot sight with a Fortis mount https://www.primaryarms.com/fortis-f1-optics-mount-absolute-cowitness-height-fortis-f1-ab except mine is 1/3 lower co-witness.

During daylight I have to turn up the brightness to pretty much full bright in order to even see the dot, and that's at 2 MOA.

I have a Bushnell 1x4x30mm on my AR, with a 1 minute illuminated dot. I hate it for shooting groups. I shot way better groups with the fixed 6x fine crosshair scope it used to have. But it is ok for shooting at real world targets. I leave it at about 2.5x for a wide view.

I think a tiny, target dot on a red dot sight kind of misses the point. Red dots are for putting rounds on target fast in a combat situation, or competition. They're useful for short range hunting on slug guns or hard kicking rifles. But to reach out 250 yards and put a bullet through a Coyote's head, a crosshair is better...
