Re: Reflex sight for short shots?
What type of reflex sight? Like the mini leupold versions or like an EOtech? I would recommend just getting a quick detachable mount and putting a lower variable scope on it. The scope is more precise and has some magnification so you are focused on the target and not the surroundings. Also, the side mount or top mounts are sexy on ARs, but ARs have a much lower profile than a bolt action so it's easier to get the sights configured how you would like. Last but not least I used an EOtech in AFG and at dusk it would drown out the target, and it was still difficult to use with the night vision option. Also, the M68 optics red dot floated in the scope so it drove me crazy not having the dot centered on a target when I shot. I quickly switched to the ACOG. Reflex sights are great optics for CQ and engagements within a hundred yards but with the setup you currently have I think it would be difficult to achieve an accurate and comfortable shot. So, plus one for a lower powered scope. I hoped I helped.
