    Optics question

    I'm fairly new to the world of optics as I am fairly new to the world of rifles. I was hoping someone could answer a quick question. This isn't so much about the exact optics I am going to link, but more a question of "style" of optic.

    Bushnell 1x25 Trophy Series TRS-25 Red Dot Scope w/ Battery 731303 FREE S&H 731303. Bushnell Trophy Red Dot Sights, Bushnell Red Dot Sights.

    Bushnell Trophy 1x32 Riflescope Matte T Dot 730132P 1x32mm 730132P-DEMO

    Both optics have a 3 MOA dot. The first one is significantly less bulky and heavy then the second. Is there a advantage to the more "scope" style of the 2nd one?

    Well, neither magnify so the field of vision will be more thru the larger tube. However, you can keep both eyes open so there is not much of a penalty to the smaller tube.

    What is your intended purpose?

    I would say the only reason the second one is built and looks the way it does, is it is trying to mimic a Trijicon ACOG.
