Can this unit fit a Ruger ranch rifle?
Kenneth F C on Nov 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a mini red dot sight and in my opinion works best on a handgun. It does come with a picatinny mount and will mount to a rail. A larger tube style red dot such as the Strikefire II may be a better choice for a rifle.

Will this mount on semi pistol . Without mods?
Nicholas P on Jan 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the pistol. If your pistol has an optics (RMR) cut and is either drilled and tapped for the Vortex Venom and/or the Burris Fastfire III (or has adapter plates for same) it will work. There is no provision for mounting without either a cut in the slide or an adapter plate for the rear sight bevel.

Is the mount lower 1/3 or absolute co-witness?
Anthony C. on Mar 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I mounted the sight on a Ruger SR 1911 after the slide had been modified. An area behind the ejector port and in front of the rear sight was cut out. When mounted the rear sight marks on the Red Dot sight can be used if Red Dot is not illuminated. JL Machining Works did the Optic Cut in the slide. You do not use the sight base. You have a lower profile and the front sight can be used.

Great little sight
Have added to my collection of sights, they hold up well on a P 320 pistol, so not worried about on a rifle. Clear glass good dot, worth the money.

Old eyes could use a little magnification
It works very well on an AR carbine, was at the local indoor range and mind you I'm not the best shot but it helped my grouping tremendously. Unfortunately my eyes are too blurry to see a crisp dot at distance, would have really liked for it to be a 2X lens.

Best Money I Ever Spent
Finally our range opened up so I got to try my Venom out that I mounted on a CZ P10F OR and can't say how much I really enjoyed it, they make a world of difference. I had eye surgery and my distance vision is great but I need readers and with those on iI have trouble at times getting the sights and the target in focus at the same time, but with the Venom i don't have a bit of trouble and glasses are not needed at all. I love it and I have another one on the shelf but just havent decided what its going on yet.

A great optic at a reasonable price.
I have Vortex Venoms installed on several handguns and find they perform as well or better than more expensive optics. They are reliable and, most important, hold zero.
Works great on my S&W M&P M2.0 Performance Center C.O.R.E.
