This was my thought as well.
I have a Vortex Strikefire on an AR. While it's OK, it's not really my cup of tea. It will very likely be replaced in the not too distant future with a 2-7x scope or similar. For range and other general purpose use, I think it is a more versatile option.

For a dot Ultra DOT is a good brand that handles recoil better than many. But I would put a 2-7 or 2-8 power scope on it.
