The TRS-25 has 11 brightness settings and set on bright does pretty well on sunny days. I really don't use it much beyond 50 yards but would say within 75 yards or so you won't have many complaints. I have two and no problems with either. They're an Aimpoint Micro knockoff but a pretty decent one in my opinion. Daniel Defense used to put them on a value patrol M4 for LEOs.
I hate to recommend it too strongly since I've only used two but it's light, $80 and holds zero on a 5.56 so you won't get hurt too bad if it doesn't work out for you.
