carry handle mounted optics
 
I have an A2 fixed carry handle AR. The iron sights are fine for person sized groups at standard yardages. I'd like to add a removable mount (I tend to be tough on scopes) and some basic optics. The mounts range from $25 to $200 and I don't understand the difference. This is not a competition, 0.2 MOA shooting weapon, durability supersedes finite accuracy. Optics will probably be and old beat up fixed low power scope. Any guidance?

Visit this link for midwayusa.com, I got my AR carry handle mount for $5.99 plus shipping and handling. I still haven't got an AR scope for it yet though.
They are new and made of high quality aluminum!

I bought a $15 carry handle mount from CDNN Sports. It works great! I took the carry handle off however, and re-mounted the scope on the rails so I could actually rest my cheek on the stock. If your handle is not removeable, it isn't all that uncomfortable.

And they are easily removed/attached.
