Longunner, you can find the red/green dot Vortex Strikefires for $140-180. They come with 2X magnifiers, hold zero, long battery life, waterproof to 50ft, lifetime warranty, and require no additional mounts. You can't do better for under $200 in my opinion. Outstanding value.

I have two of them, here's one on my Noveske/BCM:

I have no problem with iron sights. I'll take them over a $200 optic any day of the week.

My problem is with the Kart-Mart "Blue Light Special" optics on a nice rifle.

Would you put K-Mart "economy" tires on a Mercedes?? (I wouldn't put them on a Kia!
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
