I have a German made Docter Reflex sight mounted on a Sprinfield 1911 base model. It works very well, it looks like a copy of the Tasco Optima 2000, only it is made with metal and glass instead of plastic.

I haven't got to fire enough rounds with it to be able to tell if it is going to work out as well as I think. Anyone else got any experience with one of these sights?

Thanks.

I've been using a Tasco Optima 2000 on a 1911 and have had good luck with the sight. Using a small slide-mounted red-dot has certainly helped me in the 20-25 yard range. And I can still holster the pistol.

I wanted to try the Doctor Reflex sight, but a distributor told me that the Reflex sight used a different mounting base than the Optima, and that I'd have to change my sight base if I wanted to use the Reflex sight.

I was about to switch, preferring the metal/glass construction to the plastic, but the prices of the Optima keep dropping (I've seen the Optima for$129, and even less from some websites). The last time I checked, the Doctor Reflex was almost twice as much. I'll probably consider switching if the price drops.

fla32,

Yes, I shot with the Optima 2000's for a while, but all three of them self destructed (with a little help from me on one!).

The base is definitely diferent. I wish they had made them the same, but I guess not....

The Optima 2000 worked very well, overall. The Docter is functionally the same, but I was just curious if anyone had any experience shooting a lot of rounds with one.

Thanks.

Casey
