    What would be my better red dot the would work best with the A2 AR, I am looking at the Vortex Sparc, Vortex Strikefire and Burris AR-332? I have a cheap scope right now and it is not working out due to focus points. 25yd, 50yd and 100yd is what I shoot at most.:confused:

    Yes, I am wanting to build a flat top over the winter but a I want a red dot that will work now and then. I just want fast alignment and accuracy.

    I would recommend getting a freefloat handguard with rails and attaching the red dot out there until you get a flat top built. The Vortex optics get good reviews.

    Pretty tough to beat the vortex strike fire for the $$$$. Lifetime warranty. I had a PA microdot and it worked well but after about 3500 rds it would.t hold zero. Call them and they gladly sent me a new one to replace it with. Only bad is in a yr its outta warranty if it fails ur out $100+

    Is the Burris 332 considered a reddot?

    Thanks for the input, I sold my A2 AR15 and am now looking for a flat top AR, I will most likely buy the vortex Strikefire due to that is what I can afford right now.

    Safe travels. That strike fire seems to get a good review from most all.
