Recommendations on holographic sights
 
Looking for high quality low weight...I've heard eotech is the lightest weight I'm going to find, but I'd like to avoid the $890 price tag of possible. Going on an FN FiveseveN with a rail system I have attached to the bottom and reaches around to the top. The pistol is top heavy being that 98% of the steel used to build it is above the thumb...hence my wantinf as lightweight as possible.

890 for an EOTech? Newsgroup, I thought the 400$ ones were expensive. I've seen them on the popular gun sites for about 400-500$. I'm not sure about the weight of it, but the sightmark ultra shot is about 120$ new. Virtually the same thing as EOTech. Looks and all. You could look into that. Or eBay is always an option. Haha.

Don't know why my phone changed jeesh to newsgroup...sorry about that.

If you want a true holographic EOTech is the only way to go. The XPS2 is probably your best bet @ 8 oz and is around $450.
Have you considered a higher end reflex like the Leupold Deltapoint @ 6 oz.
Burris Fastfire is ok and about 9 oz.

I was kinda tunnel visioned on holographic sights...never really considered reflex sights. That Leupold sounds light as hell though, I may broaden my view.

Well I did look at all the brands like Sightmark, and all the reviews end the same way- bad. I could try eBay, just never trusted online marketplaces, too many bad experiences in the past. I reeeeally want an EOTech lol but whatever I end up with, the price needs to be respective of the true quality/weight.

I have a Eotech XPS3-0 and it is great. Have you looked into a Trijicon RMR?

They have mounts for the RMR that you can mount it to your AR or AK.

Awesome...I had a friend from my platoon suggest something like "Sight Doctor"? Anybody know what that is? He said he had one from them on his .45
