ar-15 optics

Best red dot and magnifier for the money. 0 to 200 yards. has to hold zero, no cheap stuff.

Aimpoint has a longer battery life and larger FOV when looking through the mag. Eotech is also great but make sure its from the XPS or EXPS line the older series had issues that have all been addressed in the new line. The eotech has a 1MOA dot aimpoints are 2 and 4 on avarage.

You will not be dissapointed with either optic. I have 2 aimpoint micros and one M4 optic. I will part with the M4 is you send me a PM.

Re: ar-15 optics

I know this is not an answer to the question you asked... Are you looking for close quarter combat? Something where you will need to flip a magnifier out of the way?

If not You might try looking at one of the low multipower red dot scopes. Leupy has one and Vortex has one. There are probably several manufacturers maybe burris yada yada . I have used the Leatherwood CMR and it is suprising. The CMR is considered cheap stuff at $330 but it proved to me what could be done with that arangement.

Just a thought.

Re: ar-15 optics

My wife likes her ARMS #31 mount with the #31 spacer.




Her Brother has the vortex 3x magnifier it looks good and is clear. I think he has the vortex or a bushnell red dot. It works but I cant vouch for durability.

I have been very pleased with the aimpoint. She leaves the batteries on for months and it is still on when we pull the covers off.
