    I'm looking for a red dot sight or scope that is good for shooting in the night. I have some rats that are crawling all over the place.

      Right there near the butt of the gun where  you would rest your cheek to look down your sights, there is a groove of a rail on top of the barrel and runs like 7inches, heres  link to a Red-Dot sight

      I think Crosman makes several, have you looked at the Copperhead Red Dot Sight that they make? It looks excellent, but you'll always have the usual problem with accuracy, like most Airsoft guns.

      Here's a review:

    I see the groove.  Will this work at night?

    I am waiting for the animal rights activists to set fire to this thread. 

    Seriously though, have you tried getting a dog or cat?  Sometimes rats will avoid the area if they can even smell a pet.  The ultrasonic repellers work really well too... and you don't have to worry about shooting your eye out.

    Go for Leapers scope: http://www.riflescopes.webyshops.com/Br … P-394FDRL4

    Not only you'll be able to shoot rats at night but also use it for plinking. Red dots are designated for rapid shooting to human sized targets not for hunting.

    I'll check the Leapers scope out.  I sited the open sites in and it's pretty accurate.  At about 40 - 50 yards, I can hit a two inch diameter target in a pretty tight group.

    Wow, that's impressive. Have you ever shot guns before?

    As a junior I qualified for the junior Olympics in small bore. It's been so long I can't remember exactly, but I was decent in prone and standing.
