I'm having good luck with a Vortex SPARC Red Dot Sight SPRC that was on sale for about $200 at Optics Planet. It's on my SKS (against conventional wisdom, I know but I'm making it work and smiling a lot) - I dropped $$ on some lower priced units - 1X red dots and they had one severe weakness or another - mostly they performed poorly in bright light. Does anyone have recommendations for 1X red /green dot sights that they like ( a lot!) below the $200 mark. The next project is a Mossberg 930 12 g. I start next week.
