This is a discussion on Inexpensive red dot suggestions within the Defensive Rifles & Shotgun Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I have a S&W M&P-15 sport and want to get a nice but not too expensive red dot on it. Any suggestions?...

Current collection: Too many according to the wife...
Ditto that. My M&P 15-22 wears a PA M3 Multi-Reticle, but it will hold up just fine on a 5.56mm rifle, as well.

Another vote for Primary Arms.
I own 3 of their red dots and have had good luck with these inexpensive "clones". They work well and are great values and the company is top notch to do business with. I also have a Vortex Strikefire and its a decent quality optic but not as good a value IMO. But remember these inexpensive optics are not near the quality of the high end sights (Aimpoint/Eotech) but are fine on a plinker/range rifle/3 gun match/SHTF gun. 99.9% of the AR's owned by members here will never see "hard duty".

I bet there is some slightly used good PA deals in the classifieds section. ;)
I have been using a Vortex SPARC for a few month now on a S&W M&P-15 and it is working very well.
