    Hello all,

    Finally found a Sig 522 for a decent price at Wholesale Sports and rather than installing the iron sights, I would like to jump strait to a red dot or scope. I also have a Sig 556 with the diopter sights and would like to use the 522 as a proof of concept to figure out what will work on the 556.

    I would like to work CQB out to 100 yards. Are there significant differences in a scope for a .223 and a rim fire?

    I have been thinking about an ADCO Alpha Red Dot ~$108.

    Thanks

    I run a Vortex SPARC and LT660(HK) Mount that gives me an absolute co-witness with my irons ~ $330 w/ shipping

    Cant beat the SPARC for the $$$. The best Red dot would have to be the Aimpoint T1/H1 Aimpoint Micro T-1 2MOA/M4 QD Mount Combo | LaRue Tactical

    Vortex SPARC Vortex Tactical - SPARC Red Dot
    LT660 LaRue Tactical Aimpoint Micro Mount LT660, LT660HK or LT661 | LaRue Tactical

    The LaRue is guaranteed to return to 0 after removal and reinstall and I have tested this so many times as I switch back and forth between the SPARC and a Nikon M223

    On my 522 is a Vortex SPARC that I am very happy with.
