I don't know what your budget is, but I'm selling my Red Dot Sight Tactical M4 Barska 1x30mm IR Optic. It's made for the M4 rifle. It's quite nice and not expensive.

Well, it depends...What's the optic going to be used for, close range or medium to long range? Do you want any magnification? Red-dot type or crosshair type?
Most importantly is what is your price range?

If you've got the money you could always go with a good ACOG or a Jpoint or the bundle of the two from JP Enterprises, of course that's the high end stuff for competition.

Like ARnoob said, I don't know what your funds are, but the Aimpoint H-1 is great. It is light and very quick on aquiring the target. This also depends on what range you will be using it for, but you can always add a magnifier.

So far, I'm digging my EOTech 512. I may see about adding a magnifier to it at a later date.

That's a good way to go also! I think it is a toss up between them both. I run an aimpoint on my personal AR and a eotech on my SWAT rifle. I like both,, but was really impressed with the H-1 Aimpoint.

I am leaning toward an H-1 Aimpoint for my M-4! (The 517 Eotech may also find its way on the shorty) ..................Thanks, W.T. :cool:

I'm a Tactical Gear Retailer. The Aimpoint Micro H-1 is definitely a good choice.

When you pick up the H-1, you'll have to decide if you want to mount it directly on the rail, or on a raised mount. The H-1 is a small sight and the red dot will be approximately 1/2 and inch above the rail surface.

If you'd like the dot higher than that, there is a Larue Quick Disconnect mount that will raise it another 1/2 an inch.

If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask. We have a lot of experience with the Aimpoint line.

Have a good day!

Wow, didn't know it was that affordable. I saw the outrageous monthly fee that another "popular" forum wanted me to pay to be a "member" and decided to go in stealth on all the forums.

I got the subscription, thanks for the heads up!

Ok, I'm legit now.....lol
