Generally speaking "red dots" and such are gonna be 1x sights. They're good to about 50 yards for me.
I like the EOTech style better than the AimPoint style because of faster sight/target acquisition, for me.
I tried a Vortex Strikefire red dot scope on my AK in a LaRue Cantilever mount, just didn't work for me. I went back to iron sights, but may add another EOTech to my collection one day, who knows.
