    I am researching options for optics. My original idea was a reflex type sight, but I am starting to think that might not work so well in bright sunshine. There might be other limitations for that option as well.

    I am hoping to get involved in 3 gun type competition (Nothing too serious, just fun on the weekend) so it should be suitable for that type of shooting.

    Although the ACOG looks like an attractive option it’s way out of my budget.

    My budget is around $300 or so… Good quality for less would certainly be welcome.

    Thanks in advance!

    Unless you plan on using night vision, get a non-night vision EOTECH. I'm pretty sure the 512 is the one that takes standard AA batteries.
