    Hey Everybody

    I'm looking for a good but "cheap" scope for my AR-15. I can't afford the Eotech set up I want at the moment. If anybody has suggestions or opinions that would be great.

    What is your cut off for "cheap" and do you prefer the red dot style or a small variable power? If you're looking for something new I'd be happy to send you a list of what I have available with NWFA member pricing.

    Check out the Primary Arms red dots and Micro Dots. I have a P.A. Micro Dot on my AK and love it. Its always held zero and has fairly good battery life. Great prices too.

    I actually have a Primary Arms green dot that sits on top of the P.E.P.R mount holding my DMS-1. They rock!

    I have a Sig Sauer 3x I bought for $125 a month or so ago. You have the option of a non-illuminated reticle that is very crisp and has stadia lines out to 600 I believe. It also allows for green and red illumination and again the reticle is very crisp and sharp. I have found that in the daytime the brightest settings with either color isn't very good. Even though it's "illuminated" it's difficult to tell. However, the black reticle is there. At night or twilight the lower illumination settings are best. At the brighter settings there is a tendency to get some reflection making it harder to see the target. You learn to "look through" the reflection but it is a bit annoying.

    I also have a Bushnell version of the AP Micro. It has been a great little 1x red dot.

    I just found out that Bushnell is making a cheaper version of an EoTech. Look it up, it is about half the price.

    Define "good" and "inexpensive". Also wtf does "tactical" mean to you?

    Exactly what he said. Also you have to pay to play. I would keep using the stock sights untill you can afford something other then Chinese crap.

    I got one and Its sweet. I have no exp with Aimpoints or EoTech.. But this one is really nice (from what I can tell) Ive had mine out a few times and was hitting steel no problems at all..

    Totally worth the price. I paid more than the $120 here and am completely satisfied. The only thing I have with it is my own fault is I have to make extra effort to remember to shut the thing off.

    Get yourself over to Keith's (or a very well stocked store) and check out their selections. My son picked up an inexpensive 3-9 ncStar + Red Dot for his M&P 15-22.

    Just let them know what you're looking for in terms of features and budget.

    If you're not looking for magnification, check out the Konus Sight-Pro Atomic 1x24mm red dot. I've had it on an AR for 1.5 years and maybe 1000 rds. Same battery since buying it and has green and red 4 moa dot. in variable brightness. It's a Micro clone just like the Sig and Bushnell versions. Maybe from the same manufacturer. Depending where you get ot $100 to $150.
    You'll want a rail spacer of some kind to match up with your BUIS.
