Your Favorite Red Dot Reflex

I want a decent red dot reflex for my Bushmaster XM15 carbine but I don,t want to spend $500 on it. What do you guys recommend

I,ve looked at EOTech, Sightmark, BSA, Burris, Trijicon, ets... But I want the best for my money.

I want to shoot 100-200 yards...which I have heard is very doable with a good red dot. My eyesight is excellent at distance

Thanks

Mick

My sightmark with the QD feature seems to eat batteries. Weird batteries (3) and not the easiest to get all in correct direction. Really like the choice of changeable reticle. My preference is my Burris FF3. Is great on my AR pistol.

For anywhere between $350-390, it's hard to beat the Aimpoint PRO. Proven quality and durability.

I've never tried one but I've heard good things about Vortex. And that will put you below $200.

YMMV. People have told me on here that they like theirs. I haven't pulled the plug yet.

Is the 3 MOA better than the 8 MOA for 100-200 yards?

http://www.opticsplanet.com/burris-f...nny-mount.html

Why are they selling them with NO MOUNT?

Thanks

$249 clams is a good price!

It is a red dot sight. It just happens to be inside a tube. That's why it doesn't break so easily.
