Default Anyone know of any non battery powered acog sights?

Are there any budget acog clones that don't take batteries or some eotech clones? Thanks and by budget I mean under 200$

Bushnell made an eotech clone. Not sure on price but it is pretty good. I mounted one on a shotgun for a Leo.

Sorry. If you want a battery free, tritium powered ACOG, you'll have to buy an ACOG.

And they're really not that expensive. The ACOG on my Colt LE940 cost less than the rifle.

See the a cog clone in this video

If you don't wish to spend the money for an ACOG, Trijicon also makes battery free reflex sights.

Honestly id hold out if I were you I just bought my TA31G for less than 900 take your time save the money and it will be well worth it but if its truly not an option to wait I did have a sightmark I bought from sportsmans for like 30 bucks it was battery powered but damn it lasted a long time and the batteries were like $5 for 2 it only takes one so I threw the other in the gun case

After doing research I found a few however I'm not sure on quality, nc star makes a 4x32 a cog look alike and it take batteries but only to light up the crosshairs. I also found another for 150, I forgot what brand though. I'll probably end up saving for something really nice
