Default Common AR15 question different guy.

I know this is probably asked a lot, and will probably catch crap for it. If so i wil say sorry now. I am looking for an eotech style scope that does not cost as much as a new rifle, while at the same time does not fall apart. I want it on my flat top AR15. I know the first response will be something to the effect of (good luck) or ( If you find one let me know) i get it, but i cant find such a sight any where i have looked. So please if anyone has any info point me the right way. I dont want a cheap looking AR but i dont have mony for some 600 dollar sight. Thanks guys.

What is your budget? My favorite, hands down, is the Trijicon Reflex with a 4MOA dot. No batteries required, lighter and smaller than an Eotech and you don't have to turn it on. I like it much better than my issued M68CCO (Aimpoint Comp M4).

Unless you have some dire need for night vision compatibility you can find the 6.5 MOA version for a touch over $300.00. The larger dot does tend to "wash out" a bit beyond 50-60 yards though. The 4 MOA is better in that respect, in my opinion, but runs closer to 5 bills.

im going to try and give you an answer. they really dont exist as you describe. about the only thing you can do is save up for what you want. be a little patient. if you DO find a sight that is normally a 600$ job for the 150-250$ range its liekly to be a fake repro from some sweat shop in asia.

I really like that Bushnell, thats pretty much what im after. I have 2 of the tube type red dots one is a BSA with the red,green,blue changing dot and a Simmons red dot. i had the Simmons mounted on the my AR when it had the carry handle receiver. But i want to change it up now that it was the flat top on it. The Bushnell i think is what im gonna go for unless someone shows me something i like better.

A good friend of mine (who is very well off) put the Bushnell on his AR and loves it. I've played with it and find it more than sufficient (and I am an Aimpoint fanboy). The Bushy will serve you well.

Thanks, Mate. I'm happy to help. But you need to post pics and a range report when you get it all finished.
