Even though i have owned alot of guns I bought my first AR (thanks to the advise on here)and I'm thinking of trying a red dot on it. Any suggestions on which one? I dont want to spend $400, more like under $200.
Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same
I have an Aimpoint PRO and would highly recommend it. They can be found for right around $400 or less. Indestructible, it can be turned on and left on with a battery life of 5 years on medium setting.
I also have a Vortex Strikefire which can be found for around $100 now that they introduced the Strikefire II. No complaints except the placement of the on/off switch which I heard was addressed with the new model.
I also have a Primary Arms Micro-Dot which is the least expensive of the three but is very good and gets excellent reviews.
Strikefire here too. Love it. Go with the bright red not the red/green model.
X2. My StrikeFire is great for what I use it for. Im not the kind of guy who shoots 24/7 or 'torture tests" my equipment so I wasnt looking to spend a lot on a red dot. Strikefire suits my needs perfectly. Note, the picture is with the magnifier on the Strikefire, without it the red dot is shorter, enough to use my BUIS.
