I have a Webley Typhoon and the rear sight is broken so I'm looking for a durable dot sight.
There's lots out there but I want one that will hold up to the recoil on this gun. Preferably one that is a dovetail mount so I don't have to add any more weight from an adapter.

Bushnell TRS 25 with a UTG adapter which might only raise it 3mm. But I've put those tasco 42mm red dots thru hell.

I do have an UTG adapter. I was thinking about the Tasco just wasn't sure how durable they were.

I'm going to try a local store tomorrow and see if they have the Tasco. If not I will order on Monday.
I think this is a sign I should stick with the Diana Pistols. Anyone want to sell me one.

I took my NC Star reflex sight off another gun and used my only adapter to get this thing usable. Seems to work so far but we will see if it holds up to the recoil. I will try and get a shorter adapter in the meantime.

Nice. I got a benjamin NP trail pistol and wish I got the Hatsan 25 I guess that Webley is the same.

I like using these. Low profile and add very little height and less bulky. About 15$. Just fits in the weaver ring. mount etc

I have a few of them. They do work great and are low profile.

I have this Tactical Mini Holographic Dot Reflex Sight on one of my P17's. Inexpensive for $16 works okay. But like most things purchased from Ali Express...it takes forever to get to your door.

Also purchased a 20mm Rail Riflescope Hunting Optics Holographic Red Dot Sight. Yet to mount on anything. It needs a
11mm 20mm Converter to.

I was looking at some reflex sights as well. Our regular suppliers are somewhat lacking in choice for them. What brand of reflex sights are you guys using ? There's lots on amazon but I think they are mostly airsoft.
For those who aren't familiar with the Typhoon the whole top of the gun recoils a bit to offset the piston slamming forward. It's supposed to lessen the overall recoil. I think. lol. It still has a pretty good kick so I don't want a sight that is to flimsy. Don't want to break the bank either.
