    Looking for a red dot or open circle for my Smith and Wesson M&P 15 Tactical. Any help would be much appreciated.

    well i think under 200 it might be tricky.. you could try a bushnell. goes for about 100. my friend has one. it sits a little low but seemsto work okay. other wise the generall RDS is gonna be eotech but thats around 400 to 500

    for rds: vortex strikefire hands down. slightly above 200 the vortex sparc.

    ive seen bsa red dots self destruct on the minimal recoil from a .223

    Same deal on the NC star stuff. Buy the vortex and have a lifetime warranty

    Curious why they liked the BSA and Tasco cheapies over the Bushnell? Is this report available somewhere?
