Quality Optics at Cheap price? What do you know of out there??
I mean let’s face it there are some optics out there that are as expensive or more expensive then the gun it’s on, I’m sure some guys/girls on here and who are reading this have them themselves. I myself have a 552 EOTECH W/ a 3x Aim magnifier (just purchased the magnifier this week) on a Rock River AR, i love the setup and don’t regret spending the money but fact of the matter is those two things i could almost buy another quality AR. I am by no means trashing that idea or putting down those products. We all know the quality optics out there EOTECH, Aim, Trijicon, Leupold ext ext. but if you want those you will pay the higher price for them. i personally like to have optics but just have a hard time putting the big money into something that is just a fun at the range gun, and isn’t something that will be used as a duty gun ,competition gun or something of that nature that there is no substitution for quality.
I know the argument will be save the money and get the quality product; you get what you pay for. The question I’m asking is what optics do you know of that are a quality product that will not break the bank. Even if you would only put them on a .22LR because they would know hold up to the recoil of a 5.56 or 308. Or even better something that you would put on/have on even a higher powered gun and it holds its zero.
i know there are alot of brands out there that are much cheeper that ive looked at but wont buy becuase i dont know how they will hold up and dont want to buy the product and it be a compleat waste of money so i figured if you know of something or have personally experiance with some product it would be nice to know which ones out there are worth the purchase.
list all that you know red dots, holographic, magnifiers, scopes, after market irons, back up sights whatever you can think of.
i personally have a vortex optics strikefire red/green dot that i got for $150 normal list price is 179. it came with a 2x screw on magnifier but it has a lifetime fully transferable warranty that i found to be good because even if something does go wrong i send it back and get it fixed. i have probably 500+ rounds of 5.56 and 762x39 (started on AR then went to AK when i got the Eotech) with no problems and holding its zero quite nice.
