    I'm looking for a medium priced Reflex Type Sight to put on my AR, any recommendations? I have a 4x Loupold on it now, but my bi-focals keep causing problems.:confused: I can't afford $3-$500.00

    Thanks I'd have to find a used one. I'm retired and bought the AR from my brother. I really didn't have much of a chance to use it before I discovered the problem with bi-focals...

    You may also want to look at the Strikefire from Vortex. It's supposed to be a nice Aimpoint type setup.

    I've also used a S.P.O.T. Aimpoint style sight that I picked up for $150 with good success.

    Thanks, I've been reading write-ups on the "Burris Fast Fire Red Dot". It seems to be what I'm looking for and the price is reasonable ($175.00 new) I'm using an AR15 7.62x39 and I don't think I'll be dusting dogs at 300 yards with it. I think I'll save my 4X Leupold for the 5.56 NATO upper I'm going to build.
