The op also said holographic and EOTech is the only true holographic sight on the market. There are a lot of sights that call themselves holographic but are reflex sights. There are some good reflex sights out there.

For 200 bucks Is my budget for optic as well. I'm going with the lucid hd7 after doing quite a bit of research on it. It's doesn't lose zero when the gun is dropped from shoulder height, has 4 reticles and also doesn't lose Zero when you change them, 1000 hour battery life, has 2 brightness options Auto or manual, with manual being the normal brightness settings on sights. Also parallax free. U can get a screw in 2x magnifier if you want. And also good for recoil seen them on 12 gauge shotguns and I believe they are rated for .308 can't remember, first thing in the morning...

Just a suggestion do a bit of research on everything!

I would go w/ the Primary Arms Micro. I know it's not a holographic but you also said you wanted a "good" optic. W/ your budget the PA Micro is the best you're going to do.

I have tried the Lucid and it is very heavy.

Vortex StrikeFire and Bushnell TRS25 are good red dot sights. Both are under $200

I bought this Osprey electronic open dot sight at Fort Campbell a few years ago and although it is a little different from my EO-Tech's, it does a very good job.It has a multi-reticle function and has both red and green electronic illumination function as well as parallax function. The parallax is an unavoidable optical phenomenon where the image of the reticle and the target are in two different image planes. This phenomenon presents itself as an apparent change in the position of the reticle against the target when the shooters eye is moved significantly away from the center of the field of view. Sort of like the EO-Tech. I don't think it would cost over 2 big bills. I don't shoot this gun much , but keep it and a lot of ammo just in case of a civil war.
