AR15 Scope
What is the best tactical scope for an AR15 for around $100?

This is a highly individual thing but to help you out let's get some basics: What range are you going to be using it at? What's your philosophy of use for your rifle? The scope? These questions will help us help you.

I'll add another question that may help us out.

Are you looking for magnification or just speed?

It's a standard 5.56. Speed over magnification. Looking for a rather basic red dot.

Truglo and BSA make some red dots in your budget. Let me know if you're interested in those brands and I can get you some prices.

Ihave a Bushnell TRS 25 that I've been very happy with. It has run ontop of an AR and a .30-30 and performed well, hunting in Georgia swamps, and in Pacific Northwest rain.

Check out the vortex strike fire!! They run in between $140-$170 an they our worth every penny of that.

Why not irons? Is this a "SHTF" gun? Home protection? Fun gun? It matters.

i see your in indiana. do you plan on being out int he cold with it?? if so your going to be mighty disapointed in cheap red dots. they crap out totally once the weather gets below freezing. they start degrading capability under 40.

most of them have severe washout issues on bright days and against green or dark backgrounds.
