Rifle Scopes & Pistol Scopes

In this day and age, most firearm owners use some optics on most of their guns. You can mount optics not only on rifles, but also shotguns and handguns. Rifle Scopes and Pistol Scopes are similar, but commonly mistaken. Rifle scopes provide magnification for focusing on long-range targets; whereas, Pistol Scopes or gun sights do not. If you’re looking for a rifle scope or pistol scope Glauber’s has the best selection of your favorite brands.

    Self-Defense, Target Shooting, or Hunting Game?
  • How far away or what magnification will you need?

    Close-Range Sights use Laser Dots or Pins.
  • What is your budget?
    Fixed Scopes are more cost-effective.
    High-Range Variability tends to cost more.

Pistol Scopes and Pistol Sights

Handgun scopes can be one of your best resources. Depending on your choice, handgun scopes can help magnify your target, provide a clearer image and help you improve your accuracy. Improving accuracy and increasing distance, you won’t regret adding a quality made handgun scope or sight to your collection.

Fixed and Variable Magnification Pistol Scopes

One of the main differences between pistol scopes and sights will be magnification. If you choose to go with a magnifying pistol scope you’ll need to decide between fixed or variable magnification power. Fixed power magnification pistol scopes will typically have distances from 2X, 4X or 6X. A variable power magnification pistol scope will graduate through a range such as 2-6X, 2.5-8X or 2-7X.
