Best AR red dot for the price!

Discussion in 'Sights, Optics and Lasers' started by 9mmmountaineer, Nov 13, 2012.

  1. I've Been in the market for awhile for a new red dot or similar optic for my s&w m&p 15.
    I'm on a budget, well basically my 'ol lady says what money I can spend on guns. Haha

    I'm looking for suggestions based on people's experiences And best sight for the money. So far primary arms micro dot is top of my list but of course it's sold out on their site.

    I'm all ears on suggestions, thanks ahead of time!

    Vortex makes a GREAT long range scope for a good price. If their red-dot is on par quality/price wise, it's gotta be a winner.

    Checkout bushnells zoomdot. It's a helluva optic for the price. Got mine on Amazon. They're not ever talked about but the design was used in Afghanistan and it held up. It's a Mexican made optic but very good quality IMO. I just can't afford an aimpoint.

  6. Vortex Strike fire, I'm happy with it. Life time warranty...
     
  7. I have been looking at the Vortex I'm interested but I'd like to read more reviews on their stuff.

    Any others I should look at?

    Best for the money, by far, is the Aimpoint PRO. That being said, if that is too much, Vortex and Primary Arms make decent knock-offs (though they're still knock-offs).

    Got notification from them yesterday - they are back in stock! http://www.primaryarms.com/Primary_Arms_Micro_Dot_With_Fixed_Base_p/md-07.htm
     
  10. I just happened to get on primary arms site yesterday and looks like I'll be ordering one! The micro dot. Although a knockoff it fits my price range

    I bought a primary arms micro green dot when they first came out. I was so happy with it that I wanted to buy a couple more. I have never seen them in stock since I bought the first one.

    and my Mini 14. 3000 hour battery life, remains true and
    you can find them for around $90 bucks.

    This... I have it on my AR now. Build quality is great and it can cowitness if you get it with the extra high mount. For $150 you will not be disappointed.
     
  16. I have two of the PA micro dots.
    They are fantastic sights. I would say that it rivals my Aimpoint H-1, especially for the cost difference.

    I have one on order. My research showed me this was the best value. The built-in mount saves relatively big bucks by itself.

    As others has mentioned the Vortex StrikeFire.
     
  19. Eo-Tech on a 223 and C-More on a 22LR rifle. Like them both. They may not be in your price range however.
