Hi, my name is***** will be glad to help you.

What is the brand and model of scope? Most likely it is a red dot holographic scope. That is, it only shows a red dot suspended in the view, and no cross-hairs. You just put the dot on your target and that is where the scope is sighted in for.

I hope this answers your question and helps you. If you need anything else let me know. If you feel I have answered your question, please give me a positive feedback.

Thank you,

Bill
