Frequently Asked Questions
No. We have no restrictions. All Ultradots can be used on any type of gun or bow that has a Weaver/Picatinny rail system.
All Ultradots use the same 3 volt lithium battery #CR2032, with the exception of the HD Micro. It uses a CR1620. The life expectancy will vary greatly depending on user habits. If you turn it on and off each time you use it, the battery should last all season.

This usually indicates an astigmatism problem. Even with 20/20 vision, you may still have an astigmatism. Glasses will also cause problems with the dots clarity and shape. Try different powered glasses to determine if this is what is causing imaging problems. Incorrect brightness settings will also cause the dot to flare. Always start with the lowest brightness setting first and then turn up until you reach the desired level of brightness and a clear shape. If it starts to distort, turn the knob back down.
Please bear in mind, multiple dots, poor dot clarity or irregular shaped dots are rarely caused by the sight itself. The majority of these issues are caused by: Poor user vision, glasses, readers, bifocals, trifocals or incorrect brightness settings. The dot is formed by an LED shining through an aperture onto a mirror, the mirror passes everything but the red light. There are no wearing parts that would change the dot.
If your sight has a serial number that starts with 18-, 19- or 20- you can attach the extension tube directly on the sight or on the trim ring, located on the objective tube. If you have no serial number or any other serial number other than the ones listed above, you may need to remove the trim ring on the objective tube and then thread the extension tube directly to the body. Add the trim ring to the edge of the extension tube for a finished edge or to use the polarizing filter. NOTE: IF YOUR SIGHT IS MOUNTED, YOU MUST REMOVE THE TENSION ON THE SIGHT BY LOOSENING THE RINGS PRIOR TO REMOVING THE TRIM RING.
Yes. However a minimum fee of $25.00 will be charged, not including return shipping.
The mounting rings that are supplied with your sight require a Weaver style/Picatinny base to attach to. You can however, use any style rings you choose as long as the diameter matches the sights. Either 25.4 or 30mm.
The Ultradot HD Micro, L/T and Pan AV have a built in Weaver style/Picatinny clamping system.
Ultradot 25: 44.45mm (1 3/4″), Ultradot 30: 47.63mm (1 7/8) / Matchdot: 57.15mm (2 1/4″), Matchdot II: 57.15mm (2 1/4”) and Ultradot 6: 57.15mm (2 1/4”)
The rings should be placed as close to the center of the body of the scope as possible. Ideally, you should have the ring closest to your eye butted up against the sights center housing. This will help to prevent the sight from moving. Be sure to tighten the bottom screw before the top screw and never place the rings directly around the lenses. Tightening the rings when placed in this manner may cause the lens to break. This is not covered by warranty.
In most cases Ruger supplies 25mm rings. Due to the placement of the rings, the Gen 1 and Gen 2 25mm sights are compatible. You can buy 30mm rings from Ruger for their integrated system and use the Gen 1 30mm sight. Due to the limited space between the rings all other Ultradots are incompatible (the center housing is too large). If you want to use the Matchdot, Matchdot II or Ultradot 6 you will have to bypass Ruger’s system and install a Weaver/Picatinny style rail on your gun.
