Greetings, As you may know now, I am quite fairly new to weapons (Thanks to the great Liberal Canadian Governement) but now that I am in Georgia, I am trying to make out for all those years I lost up there freezing in the cold...hehehehe. I have 2 questions: 1 - Red dot scope. I read, saw on the web but I do not still figure out how they work. Is it like a normal scope but you put the red dot on the target? Do you have to care about the front sight? Is it working with a battery(I am assuming so)? Are those manifying or just plain 1x? 2 - What about installing a red dot scope on my AK-47? Is there a brand that mount on the side? What brand would you go for? Thank you P.S.: Do not hesitate to write in detail.
