I would recommend the eotech. It's good all around and used by the cops. It's fine for close quarters and out to 100 yds is acceptable.
+1000 EOTech makes some superb optics, i love my 552

I like em. When I finally get around to building my AR I'm buying one.

Thanks guys - $500 for a non magnifying scope - never used a holographic or red dot or such - but perhaps just sticking with the standard military post and peep will be easiest for me.

Well you gotta do what's best for you, but if you decide to step up to a holographic i can promise you won't regret it. If you look around you can find them used for a lower price, got mine for $200 and aside from some wear on the outer housing it's in perfect shape.

I'd recommend that you start with something like the Primary Arms RDS.

https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary_Arms_s/586.htm

Or the Bushnell.

https://www.primaryarms.com/Bushnell_s/584.htm

About $100.00 is what you spend. I never used an RDS before I built my AR. Truthfully? From a home defense purpose, you'd be hard pressed to match it with iron sights.
They don't take a lot of time to adjust to, either.

It's not better/easier. The dot sites are much faster on target which translates to dead bad guy not dead good guy. Once again why skimp on a defensive weapon when quality is well w/i your budget. I will never understand it I guess.

Dots and scopes do the same thing. They help you aim.

But they differ immensely on how you use them.

Scopes are great for precision work.

Red dots are for speed. Not precision. Once you take a class or run some drills you will appreciate red dots. They are so fast its like cheating.

First round on target wins.
