Best sight for ~$60
 
I just bought me a Del-Ton Echo 316 w/ Magpul and it already has a front sight. I was just planning on buying a rear sight but instead i am thinking a scope, red dot, something cheap but good. I sort of want something that will work with the front sight so i do not have to take it off, but any recommendations are helpful. Thanks!

Woops
 
Looks like i get rear sights and front sights mixed up in the post.

So you have a front sight? And want to buy a rear sight?

$60 will easily buy the excellent Magpul MBUS2 rear sight. For a RDS, you can catch the Bushnell TRS-25 on sale for around $80, I couldn't recommend any RDS cheaper than that. I use this combination on a couple ARs with excellent results.

Perfect combo for me as well. I was skeptical of the TRS-25 but after a year of good service with my first one I bought another. No problems with either. I don't know if it would hold zero for years on a 12 gauge but it does just fine on a 5.56 AR.

So you are saying this for $80. Damn this seems like a good deal

Yeah that one. Hmmm, $70. I may have to get another! :p

Amazon also has it for $70 with free shipping and no local tax (if you have Cabelas in state).

You will need a mount. A little embarrassed to recommend UTG but they have $10 mounts with short, medium and tall risers. I like the tall one which gives a bottom 1/3 cowitness. The medium gives absolute cowitness.

Amazon has them.

Do you even need a rail? I know that the top of the gun has some sort of rail system already on it. Can't the scope go right on top of the gun? Or will a separate rail be needed?

-Newb question- (Most likely)
