Eotechs can be had for $400 and under for the older models now. The only ones in that price range are the night vision compatible models. I've seen used models go for $300 to $350.

To my knowledge, they are the only true "holographic" sights available. If you are looking for a quality RDS $400-600 is what you will pay for the top tier RDSs.

What is your price point?

synical,

Check here on the Forum in the Classified section! For EOTechs. If you want a good EOTech for the money and do not need a NV Compatible Unit.
Look at the Model 512 for the money it is hard to beat.

If you are looking at the $100 range, I have a Primary Arms M4 clone that had worked out pretty well. Its got multiple types of reticule and has stood the abuse or a couple high round carbine classes. I think they go for about $90 not including shipping. It is heavy and beefy, feels as though it will take a good about of physical abuse. (tho I haven't dropped it yet) It does have a circle dot reticle, as well as a simple dot and crosshairs.

I've been looking for a used EoTech and have found a few XPS's for the $300-$350 range. I've been using an XPS on my LWRC for a few years now and have been happy.

You can get a Primary Arms micro dot for $100.

I'm a fan of Micro RDS.

Do you think primary arms sights would hold up to AK recoil? I've seen they have package deals for their sights And AK rear sight leaf mounts.
