    Ok guys and gals. Im looking for a red dot to mount on my Sig AR. I dont want to spend a fortune on it, but i want something that is still reliable and nice. Peak cost would ideally be $150.

    Is it fairly good at keeping zero while being used? A good price means nothing if it cant hold zero.

    Sorry. You're not going to get good quality for that price.
    Take a look at the Aimpoint PRO. Around $400, but you'll only need to buy one.

    Primary arms makes a nice unit. I have a microdot that has held up fine. The base is where you can get expensive. I bought their quick release base and its ok. The Daniel defense would be better but $$$
