"I recently purchased a Redring through OpticsCamp.com and what can I say, other than I am overwhelmed with both the service provided by Opticscamp and the performance of the product. Being in Australia, I was a little skeptical when purchasing a product unsighted and untested. Brad at Opticscamp was fantastic, assuring me of the products versatility, ease of use and potential in the field. Postage and communication were first rate and professional.
As for the actual Redring... WOW! Being fairly new to shotgunning the benefits were immediately obvious. Firstly, the mounted Redring immediately corrected my shouldering and eyeline down the ribs. It forces you to position and aim a shotgun correctly. And the accuracy... Once mounted, you JUST DON'T MISS! We hunt for feral pigs and foxes in very thick and heavy timber, where you have split seconds worth of opportunity and shots must be accurate. The Redring does all this and more. On a recent trip, even veteran shotgunners and hunters were impressed with its low profile, ease of use and above all, it's accuracy. Over a 3 day period, not one shot missed when fired using the Redring.
I understand there are the critics out there that cringe at thought of a sight on a shotgun, but for me, this just works. I use red "dots" on some of my rifles, and find that they "just work" for me. It's a very natural progression from red dots to the Redring and I am more than confident that you won't be disappointed either. I can see these being very popular in Australia.
Thanks again to Brad and Opticscamp for providing an awesome product and service."
The Redring MKII shotgun sight is the new updated version of the original Redring. Notable upgrades include a glass objective lens and improved electronics designed for longer battery life.
At first, it might seem like the only difference between the original Redring Sight and the updated Redring MKII is a decal on the side of the body. Well, that's understandable, because the chassis of the the Redring MKII is identical to the original. The power button/brightness controls are the same, the battery compartment is the same, and the USB port is in the same place The updated version also includes the exact same clamp-on mount design, which will fit shotguns with a rib width of 5-11mm.
A common question about the Redring that we hear quite often is, "How do you adjust it?" You don't. The mounting system on the Redring MKII follows your shotgun rib, which is in line with the barrel. As long as the same spacer is used on the front and back of the Redring to attach it to your barrel, no adjustment is necessary. Don't think of the Redring as a reflex sight, think of it as a space-age front bead.
Now, the actual differences. Admittedly, not much has changed from the previous generation. Again, same chassis and reticle design. The electronics have been upgraded to provide a longer battery life. We're not quite sure how much extra battery life comes with this, but the first generation was rated at 300 hours. The auto-shutoff feature can be adjusted from 1 hour to 4 hours, so it's impossible to drain your battery by leaving the sight turned on.
The most noticeable difference that we can see is due to the lens upgrade from a plexiglass-like lens to one made completely out of glass. Not only does the clarity and light transmission seem to be more prevalent on the new version, the reticle seems clearer as well.
From what we can tell, the Redring MKII follows the old rule, "If it isn't broken, don't fix it." Redring took user feedback and improved their product, without changing things that didn't need changing. And the reduced price compared to the old model is sure to make a great shotgun sight more accessible to recreational shooters, which is always good.
