    Red dot sight for AR pistol?

    I recently assembled this 7.5 inch AR 15 pistol in 5.56 shown below. After I determine 100% reliability I would like to use it as a home defense/truck gun. I am well aware of the deterioration of 5.56 ballistics regarding the 7.5 inch barrel, so no need to bring that up. I do however wish to ad a reflex or RDS. I would love something like a trijicon using fiber optics and tritrium, but I am also open to a bettery operated unit like an aimpoint. I love the look of the Aimpoint micro, but I thing I may want something smaller and lighter... Any recommendations?

    I don't think there is anything smaller and lighter than the T-1 Micro. Unless you want a really small reflex sight. I have one of those and I prefer the larger tube of the Aimpoint. It helps you pick up the dot a lot faster, IMO.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Agreed. And if you don't anticipate needing/using night vision equipment, you can save a few bucks and get the Micro H-1.

    Good point gents, I wasn't considering the ease of finding the red dot in a larger tube. Aimpoint micro it is!

    Micro or an Eotech--my 10.5" wears a Holosight, and I like it.
