    OK I need to know of a good one, I see alot of cheap ones.

    Even if you just heard they where good let me know.

    I will do a review once I get it shoved on a gsg-5

    friend of mine had something from bi mart. just your standard red dot 1x scope. had had it for several years and loves it. Im not sure of the brand though but I know they still sell it. I think it was 20 or 25$

    I think the old Aimpoint 3000s look cool. they can be found on e-bay pretty cheap.

    I guess it depends on what your definition of "cheap" is. I put a Burris Fast Fire on my GSG-5 and I was amazed by how small it was. But it works VERY well. :thumbup:

    I'd probably call it a mid-range Red Dot considering its price. Still worth it to me. :D

    I have a fake aimpoint and a tru-glo currently. The fakepoint is better than the truglo from a quality standpoint. I have a fake eotech on the way that I'll let you know how it is. You're welcome to try any of them out.

    Mines a G&P that I got shipped for $61. I figure it's worth a try.

    11 years on my 30 mm BSA red dot... on a quiet 10/22. Cheap and ugly but has not failed.
