I like Eotech on my AR. I don't run optics on my AKM clones. But the Busnell TRS 25 is becoming one if my favorite budget compact red dots, and may find its way onto an AK clone in the future.

i dont have any assault rifles. i do have about 5 ar15 and 2 ak47.

i dont care for optics on the ak's its just not a good gun for them.

on my ar15's it depends. for my ohsht rifle i use an acog, precision ar15 i use a nightforce 12-45x benchrest, my wife likes the aimpoint rds.

ACOG TA31 rcoM4 is what I used in the marines as what I have on my AR. I love it

Well, I don't have any assault rifles, but I do have some semi-automatic carbines and rifles.

I like an Aimpoint or EoTech.

I prefer the Comp M3 to the Comp M4 because I don't think the extra weight and cost is worth the slight increase in ruggedness and I want smaller, not larger batteries.

The Micro is a little too small for me, but lots of other people love them.

I like the EoTech XPS models for their wider field of view. My HD AR has an EoTech XPS on it while my SCAR 17 has a Comp M3 and Magnifier on it.

The SCAR is just a target rifle for me, as are most of my rifles, but the AR is my go-to gun for HD.

No offense taken, I just don't have the scratch to purchase a real deal M16A2 or AK-47 or I would.

If i had (which I don't for NSA purposes) a ddm4v5 which has plenty of picatinny real estate I WOULD have an aimpoint pro and the flip to side 3x magnifier (hybrid sight for you call of duty noobs ) and Troy flip up buis , its cheaper than an acog by a few hundred $$ and gives you more options.

I don't have an Ak (I know zombiepocolyse fail boat here I come) but my friend runs a hi lux leather wood red dot off of it. It's a pretty solid optic and it's around $100 waterproof fog proof all that noise but it's Chinese.

If I had an ak it's what I'd use if it wasn't Chinese

The non existent ar is high end it might have teir 1 optics- skimping on optics on a high end ar is like putting hub caps on an escalade

For an AR-15 (depending on your use), I think an EOTech with a G33 magnifier is too notch.
Durable.
Accurate
Great battery life
And the magnifier makes it easy to go from CQB to linger range
Kinda the best of both worlds
Except the price tag
