    I'll throw in a recommendation for the Holosun 510C reflex sight.  Basically a less expensive Eotech.

    I have a couple of them and they have been fantastic.  Very low (to practically none) parallax.  Great battery life, supplemented by solar power.  Holds a zero and works very well with a 3x magnifier.  

     

    Thanks all for the recommendations.

    I really wanted to get the eotech, but too many mixed reviews to buy “sight” unseen. :rolleyes:

    Did a quick search and found the Holosun 510c for 250 shipped. Cheap enough to take a chance on it. Done!

    Thanks Sheherd9. Took a look at the reviews since you recommended the Holosun 510C.

    I definitely like all the features it has,  shake and wake - 3 different reticles - battery life.

    At half the price of the Eotech EXPS3, seems like a good buy. And its available.

    The question i have for you is do you have an astigmatism? I purchased a red dot recently and after a few range sessions and some researched, it became clear that i have astigmatism in both eyes which makes red dots a no-go for me. There is alot of good red dots out there, but if you have astigmatism the dot will appear blurry or starburst. I have since ordered a good prism sight.

    Which sight did you end up getting?

    As others have said, if you have an astigmatism a red dot could be an issue, it was for me, the red dot was a blurry star burst that gave me headaches, I solved my issue with one of these.

    Thanks for your replies.

    So looking at my red dot it seems a little blurry, not terrible, I wear glasses so I just figured its my eyesight. So of course after reading your posts I need to take it to the next level and google Red Dot Astigmatism. This is what I came up with:

    "Turn the red dot on and, using your mobile phone, point the lens down the sight as you would with your eye. How does the dot look? Is it crisp or is it showing you what your eyes are seeing? If the dot looks good, there’s a possibility that you have astigmatism".

    Sure enough the red dot is clear thru my cell phone Camera. Now What???

    Less expensive and better. Just bought one a few months ago. 

    Can you elaborate on the Eotech.

    Trying to decide on an optic based on online reviews feels like I'm watching tv commercials.

    The most popular ones with good reviews are the Eotech, Aimpro and the Trijicon MRO.

    Was considering the Eotech XPS3 - Not familiar with holographic optic, never used one. I do like the 1 moa, plus stays at 1 moa even when using it with a 3x magnifier. I think that would be great for smaller targets at a distance.

    Any opinions on the Eotech? Good or Bad

    With a 50 yard zero you can shoot 0-200 easily with a red dot, not a huge change in POI, no magnifier needed. 
     

     

    Not sure my eyes can handle the 200 yards.

    I got a P226 Legion with a red dot right when everything shut down last year so it stayed in the box. I'll be in my back yard tomorrow with the  slide and red dot to see if I even need the magnifier. Thx

     


  7. OK. So after quite a bit of research/surfing, this is what I found out.

    Looking for a red dot for closer range and want to add a 3x magnifier so I can shoot 200 yards.

     

    Using a Red Dot with 2 MOA, adding a 3x magnifier makes it 6 MOA. At 200 yards the dot is 12". 

    With a Holographic Sight 1 MOA, adding a 3x magnifier stays at 1 MOA. At 200 yards the dot is 2".

     

    Very interesting, Hopefully the info is correct. If anyone has experience with this please confirm.

     


  8. Looking for a Red Dot for my AR. At first I was looking at the Sig Romeo5 XDR. Priced around $200, thought was a good deal, but has 6 month Backorder. Don't want to wait.

    My Buddy told me to look into the Trijicon MRO, then theirs the Aimpoint Pro, same price range, both available.

    Any feedback or other recommendations would be helpful.
