What is the point of a red dot sight?

Red dot sights place the target and the reticle on nearly the same optical plane, allowing a single point of focus. This makes them fast-acquisition and easy-to-use sights, allowing the user to keep their attention on the field of view in front of them. They are common in speed shooting sports such as IPSC.

What is the difference between a sight and a scope?

A "sight" is an optic without magnification while a "scope" is an optic with magnification. But the word scope is commonly used in the US instead of the word sight.

Which is better red dot or holographic sight?

Red dot sights require your eye to move back and forth between the optical plane and the target plane, but holo-sights allow you to focus on both the target AND reticle at the same time. This makes them much less susceptible to parallax distortion. Most operators prefer holographic sights for exactly this reason.

Which is better holographic or red dot?

Red dots use power-saving LED while holographic sights require lasers to power their holograms. That's how a couple red dots have battery power of up to 50,000 hours. That's leaving it on for 5+ years. Compared with holographic sights that are usually in the 500-1000 hours battery life.

Does US military use AK-47?

These days, the U.S. does not field AK-47s, but some members of its military are trained to use them. Special operations forces from all branches might have to pick up an enemy AK-47 at some point because of the nature of their work -- sometimes help isn't coming.

Why does the AK-47 never jams?

Compared with other assault rifles, the AK-47 has generous clearance between its moving parts. That is bad for accuracy, but it means that the mechanism is unlikely to jam, no matter how clogged it gets with Sudanese sand or Nicaraguan mud.

Do soldiers get to choose their weapon?

Currently soldiers have no way of selecting their own weapon. Sometimes, mission/job specific requirements give them various weapons. The average Joe gets an M16A2. If they are of the right rank/position/know the right person in the armory, they can get an M4.
