Default 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.

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.

not even close to the same.

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.
