    Post Anybody Own This Particular Bushnell Red Dot?

    I've read some very decent "on-line" reviews and "web folks" have written some good things about it. AKA they aren't flying off of guns and they are holding a Zero.
    I'm not expecting it to be anything even close to AIMPOINT & I can grab one for right about $89.00...which seems reasonable.
    - I have a little .30 Carbine rifle that is missing its iron sights.
    I don't want to put any big bucks into it but, I'd like to get it usable with a workable optical dot.
    I did notice however that it's Made In China or rather "assembled in China" but, with American parts so... I'm just wondering if anybody here is actually using one & if so...how do you like it? Anything problematic?

    I'm not sure if its the exact same model or not, but I have one very much like that on my Ruger 22/45. Its been fine and I beat on it.

    Thanks SIXTO. That helps coming from you.
    I really don't want want to sink a whole lotta dough into this particular firearm but, I'm never keen on buying pure crap just for the sake of saving money.
    I'm looking for an OK compromise.

    Just a thought for ya QK, I have been hearing some good things about some of the Primary Arms red dot sights, they have a similar one, in the same price range: http://www.primaryarms.com/product.s...categoryId=398 I actually want to put one of those on my AK, but that is lower on the list than some other things to do right now.

    Just another option you can research.

    QK,

    Like I said, I don't own one of those, yet, but I have heard good things. I do want to put one on my AK. Whichever one you get, be sure to let us know, I'll be interested to hear your review of it.

    Primary Arms is highly touted on AR15.com. I'd pick the Primary Arms sight over the Bushnell sight. OMO

    That's what I think I'm going to do. Go with the Primary Arms.
