ACOG/red dots/green dots etc
Allo folks,

Iíve come on here to as I need your help please.

Iím a horrible Limey, I live in the UK, I work in private security, and Iím trying to buy a reasonable weapon sighting/aiming system for a rifle.
And apparently I canít.

Even though I was a soldier for ages and ages and ages and used ACOG/Eotech/Aimpoint and (the then) latest gen kitÖI canít seem to order an ACOG/Eotech/Aimpoint from the US, (US Customs regulations regarding exporting of sensitive secret squirrel stuffÖ I can get my mitts on ACOG/Eotech/Aimpoint in the UK, but at usually more than twice the US price).

I know there is the ďyou get what you pay forĒ aspect to it all, but Iím looking for an easily zeroable robust combat optic that wonít involve me having my pants pulled down over the priceÖand a company that are willing/able to ship to the UK.

Iím also tired of trawling through a ton of pages, only to find that the optics Iím looking at are replicas for airsofters or are poor quality/not suitable.

Anyone got any ideas please?

Hello: Nice use of *bereft* :D

This company (Primary Arms) has a good reputation for quality optics which are similar to Trijicon (etc.) but at lower cost.
Not sure about their international shipping regs but worth a look.

AR-15 accessories, rifle scopes, red dot sights, aimpoint rifle scopes, Bushnell

I have also found the pricing at Reddotscopes to be nearly unbeatable on the web.
