I'm having trouble finding a Red Dot Sight that will hold point-of-impact for hand guns. I've tried Holo Sight, Optima 2000, and have had limited sucess with the LG-35.
I'd really like for the Optima 2000 to work on my V-16 Springfield.
Any suggestions?

If the sights and mounts are properly installed and have remained tight (loc-tite helps if that is a problem) then you have a quality problem with the sights in question.  I personally avoid like the plague anything with Tasco's name on it.  I have had good results with the Burris speed-dot 135 on my Taurus Raging Bull .454 Casull, but that sight may be bigger than what you are looking for.  Another one you might want to take a look at is the Reflex sight made by Trijicon, which is used by the good people at SOCOM for shorter-range work.  If it will hold up through what those people put them through, they should be able to handle about anything we throw at them.
Good shooting

I recently purchased an Aimpoint Comp ml for my Ar15.  Very heavy duty as it is designed for and used by our special forces.  My rifle is a short 14.5" .223 with a compensator, with the short bbl there is a recoil that is noticeable.  The sope has NEVER shifted yet.[1000rounds]  I know that aimpoint makes Pistol scopes, although if I was gonna put a red dot on a pistol it would be the ml.
 The only downside to the Aimpoint is the price... In the 250-350 range, depending on who is selling it.  Try Aimpoint's site for the specs; although they do not sell directly to the public form the site.  <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->

I have a Millett Red Dot on my Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Mag. I have shot hot loads and no problems. I have shot over 100 rounds and the scope stayed on target. I just purchased a 2nd one, thinking of putting it on my 454 Casull. <!--emo&:D--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'><!--endemo-->

The more I think about this the more it sounds like a mount problem, especially if you're having problems with the Leopold as well.
Good shooting
