    I dont have the money right now for a real Trijicon, but I really want/need an optic. My fiance has offered to buy me one for Christmas if its not to expensive.

    Any of you know of a decent ACOG clone/knockoff for around $100-$150?

    We don't sell anything with a fake logo but do have a new fixed 4X that is arriving next week. It does have a similar shape to a Acog. Should be around $149 but I won't have the final price until we get he shipping a duty total.

    Thanks

    I don't know of any other than ones I saw at a local gun shop. They sorta looked like ACOGs, but with no fiber-optic on top, no BAC. It was a variable magnification optic (i-6 I think) with decent glass. One model even had a Doctor RDO rip-off attatched.

    I can't remember the manufacturer right now, but I'll do some research and get back to you. Primary Arms has nothing like an ACOG.

    This may not be what you want to hear, but.......
    With optics, you really do get what you pay for. Cheap optics, knock-offs and clones are cheap for a reason. Have your fiancé get you a gift certificate to someplace that sells ACOGs and save your pennies. Or, get a decent 1-4 variable, Burris Nikon Leupold, etc.
    ACOG’s are outstanding but I find a good low power variable to be more versatile.

    Not looking for a fake logo one. Just something similar in size/glass/reticle.

    Thanks.

    I plan on buying an ACOG on my own come spring/summer, I just wanted something to last until then.

    I was actually just looking at that. Found some on Amazon. I think one of those might be the one for now.

    The glass is where you're going to run into differences in quality. The Trijicon ACOG has pretty spectacular glass for what it is. I think a cheaper clone is going to leave you disappointed.

    If I were in your shoes I'd get a non magnified red dot or a mid range 1-4 illuminated variable. Then save your pennies for a TA11. :cool:

    ETA:
    In light of this: Get yourself a Docter, Jpoint, or equivalent now. Run it for the time being then you'll already have an RDS to piggy back when you get your ACOG should you so desire.

    I would like to say that Primary Arms customer service has gone above and beyond. And I like the M4 clone thing, for $89 totally worth it.

    I am going with a few others and suggest a red-dot (M3 or M4) from Primary Arms. Excellent optics for a bargain price. In the meantime, save up for the ACOG. You will love the "real" thing.

    I agree with jrs- if all I could afford was a lower level optic then I would buy a Primary Arms m3,m4 or micro dot. You will be able to use it later on for a back up gun or a plinker. I have one of their Aimpoint Clone H1 clones and it has been flawless on a AK.

    STOP.

    NO.

    and DON'T.

    You'd be better off putting $25 in the ACOG fund and throwing the rest in the fireplace.

    Don't junk out on your optic. Ever.

    That's what makes the bullets go where you want them to.

    Exactly!
    Been there done that. Never again. If I had to do it all over again, the wasted money should have gone to ammo and practice with iron sights.

    why are you so dead set on an ACOG? have you actually handled an AR with one on it?

    it feels like it almost doubles the weight of my rifle. heck, you could buy 2 Aimpoint ML2's or ML3's for the price of one ACOG. and at 30,000 hours of battery life, who really needs the fiberoptic?

    besides, the tritium WILL wear out! (it may take a few years but, it will go)

    i dropped $1000 on my ACOG and wish i wouldve known about the Aimpoints then!

    i hate to sound like i am knocking the ACOG, it is a wonderful scope. it's just that it is HEAVY and wipes out any kind of balance when mounted on an AR. also, the eye relief is only like 1.5" so you're way up close and personal with it.

    Can I get a red-dot with 4x magnification or more without an added magnifier?
