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-->

I also have a Millet red dot scope on my Ruger Super Redhawk 44mag. and haven't had any problems. Just use screw lock tight on the ring screws and you should'nt have any problems. Mark

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
