    Im VERY impressed with my new Bushnell's Trophy model scope/optic. No magnification but a well built optic and seems to stay on point with my 9mm carbine. Nice positive windage/elevation clicks and I like it a lot. Nice big bright dot. $85

    Primary arms. Awesome customer service is just as important as the product in my book.

    I have a 45 dollar BSA reflex sight on my AR and I love it. I've run about 400 rounds with it on there with no problems what so ever. I also have a set of BUS sights for just in case though. Before anyone jumps on me for being cheap in the scope department I'll go ahead and apologize for not putting some 500➕ dollar sight on it. Its hard to spend a lot of money when I support my family of 3 with only my small paycheck.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it. I'll have to check those out. I have a bushnells red dot on there right now, came with my ar. Was looking to upgrade to an acog until I saw the price.

    Looks like it's suffering from squaring error. Cheap punctuation is no bargain. Was it ever used in a semi-colon?

    Why not us save your money for a year and get the ACOG.

    You'll appreciate the quality long after you've forgotten the price.:)

    The cheapest I saw the acog going is for around $500 so I figured a decent acog would be around $700/$800? Does that sounds about right?

    Used, perhaps.

    A new ACOG goes for ~ $1100.

    And damn well worth every penny and saving money for a year or more. I know. I have 3 of them.

    For $1100 it better come with a happy ending and breakfast in bed!

    But really, anybody who has one swears by them and ive seen very few owners complain about the price. I think that says a lot.
