I have heard nothing but good about the Trophy red dot

Default Truglo ?

I just bought a Truglo Tactical dual color, red/green dot.
I'm just getting the parts together to convert my 10-22 to a AR style. I'm not a competetive shooter or anything, just doing it for some fun shooting. The scope , I know is a low end, price wise, but seems fine. The reticles are clear, at all levels of intensities.
I'll know more when I get to zero it in at the range in about a week. Anybody have this, or similar Truglo ? Are they decent for the price?
Any info?

Just returned it today, after two trys at the range, could not get it to zero. Not sure what I will get now.

Just ordered an Aimpoint 9000 sc for my Marlin 336. I had a bushnell Trophy. Was accurate but the dot would come and go at will and the brightness as well. One of the reticles had a broken segment as well. The quality was not there so I spent 366 bucks for my Aimpoint, I'll let you know when I get it how it goes.

I don't want to beat this to death and in lieu of starting another post. I am looking for a red dot. I have gotten pretty good on the flip up sights but, now want to move on to red dots and eventually longer ranges. I know you get what you pay for and all that but, for now I want a red dot mainly for training and I think I can get away with a lower price red dot it's just what one do I go with. I have looked at the ones spoken about by the originator of this post and couple of added ones and it looks like a crap shoot. I just need something to get me through training. I am not a LEO or Military so I don’t need high tech at least for now. I am just taking basic combat carbine course for now and if I get more intense and serious than I’ll look at the Trijicon’s and that class but, for now economy is all I need. For that matter I'll better my AR or even build my own who know's but, for now I am looking for the best for less. Thanks

if you look at other forums you can pick up a real aimpoint compm2 or ml2 for around $250-$300 thats how much i just paid for a compm2 with mount.

I have a question... Why don't you pony up for vendor status so that you can sell items here to people. Instead of just adding nothing but plugs for your products to threads.

You forgot to include adding a discount for FTF supporting members . Otherwise, Promotive gets my business.

From the ones you've listed, I'd go with the Bushnell simply for the 1MOA.
fwiw, I had the Bushnell and the dot was too blurry to me.
Look at the Nikon Monarch VSD before you decide. If you shop around they can be found for $200ish.

I've got a Tru-Glo dual color red dot sight, definitely budget. Not a bad sight, although I think it may be 3 MOA. Only cost $50 so I can't too much complain.
