Default New DPMS owner

I will be picking up my new oracle this Wednesday, and I'm curios on what optics I should go with. Price range tops at about 300. Mostly interested in reflex and holographic sights. Any suggestions ?

I like iron sights but I got the above too after shopping around. Came with a magnification doubler and I got a flash-killer for it as well.

KillFLASH Anti-Reflection Device.

A very thin honey-comb screen that goes over the objective lens that you will be looking through; it blocks light incident upon the objective that causes glare and/or reflections.

Can't beat the Lucid HD7. Price is right and the quality is unbeatable.

Vortex is really tough to beat for under $200...and sometimes you can find them for under $150. I've got Vortex Strikefires on two rifles and am very happy. I probably have about $260 into the pair.

That Lucid looks promising as well, but I have zero experience with them.
