I run straight irons on my AR no optic, although I have used all kinds of glass in my time.
I prefer irons to optics for range use but in a real world combat scenario I would greatly prefer an optic such as eotech, aimpoint or even a vortex red dot, for a distance shooter (over 200yds) I'd want a decent scope.
but I'm not the type to put a $2000 scope in a $700 rifle, I would only spend up to 1/3 the value of my firearm on an optic.
That's the reason why I wont buy an eotech or aimpoint for my AR that's worth about $1000-$1100 tops so vortex and lucid will be the way I go when its time.
