Well today was my breaking point. I have been working on trying to make my RRA AR-15 a both a long, and short range weapon. I mounted a 3-9x 50mm scope on the flat top, and with a Daniel Defense 1 0'Clock mount I mounted a cheap Tru Glo Holosight. This set up also makes the gun pretty darn heavy.
Today I was trying to zero the Holosight in, and it became apparent that it is broken. The dot WILL NOT STAY ZEROED. Needless to say it was very frustrating, and has led me to believe that maybe I can't have everything I want. What I like about the TG was that it had a green reticle that is very easy to see during the day. Unfortunately, it's a piece of crap. I know that Burris makes the FastFire II, but I know it's about $225-250. It would fit on the 1'Clock mount, but it's a red dot only.
So I guess not I'm back to top mounted scopes. I know that Eotech is a great sight maker, but do they have both red and a green reticle option? Also, they are VERY expensive. Please discuss with me some good choices in optics. Or maybe some other ideas you may have? Thanks!
