Yuri Gets a Red Dot

Tired of getting his ass served to him at the steel plate match, Yuri went and got a Bushnell Red/Green Dot scope (Sportsman's Warehouse) and mounted it to his Ruger Mark II 22/45 with a Wegand Combat no gunsmith scope mount from Mounts Plus. This only requires drifting out the rear sight and inserting a mounting block. Two 1/16 ball end hex key, set screws lock it down and the mounting rail is screwed down on top of it. A little lock-tite keeps everything secure.

As evidenced by this video, the accuracy that is achievable is incredible. Yuri is using the 3 MOA dot in this clip, at a distance of up to 17 yards (42 feet).
