    Just remember that the OP said max $100. On my personal favorite AR I have a Simmons Wally-World 30mm red dot. I bought it years ago when I was very poor, intending on changing it out when I could afford something better. The rifle has been used hard, dropped directly on the scope and its still never had to be sighted in again. I just don't see the need to change it out. Looks just like the one in 4th's pic. Same price range.

    sometimes PSA has the lower end vortexes for about $100 --
    i figure the best bang for buck is the primary arms --some times they go for about $69 i think-- i've had one of um for years-- still got the same batteries in it--holds zero well too.

    my only gripe about it is it only has a red sight -- it needs a green one as an option--

    My only complaint about the lower end tube red dots is like 4th said, remember to turn it off after using. It needs a pressure switch. More than once I forgot to turn it off and killed the batteries.

    this is a decent red dot i got one and its several years old still got the same batteries in it--

    https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary-...mm-red-dot.htm

    not a bad glass for $69

    and it uses hearing aid batteries not the CR2032 quarter sized watch batteries. fo me it seems the cheap red dots that use the cr 2032 seem to have switch problems and the batteries don't last no time--

    it it was me i would go with a priamary arms or a low end vortec --sometimes you can get a vortex for $100-- lets see if PSA has got any on sale this week--

    here is that $99 vortex

    Vortex StrikeFire Red/Green Dot Optic - Shop by Brand - Sights & Optics

    it has red and green dot and uses the hearing aid batteries too --and it is a vortex so it has got full warranty --like any vortex product.

    it probably is made in the same plant as the PAs .

    i don't think you can do much better for the money than a PA or a vortex--

    There you go! That's a pretty good deal. I have a very similar Vortex and paid like 150 bucks for it.

    I have a few aimpoint M-4's i got them cheap they were used from some swat unit in florida that upgraded to something else I paid under $400 a piece with the mount manual and extra mount for the ar- carry handle, But I still like my primary arms M-2 clone
    i recently picked up a elcan also used I really like this sight but its heavy and the battery is expensive, but a great sight

    so as op asked under the $100 all mentioned by others are the ones to go with
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    First, thanks for all the suggestions.
    I'm kind of leaning towards this, https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary-...sh-p/md-08.htm
    What do you think?

    not having had that unit , i cant say anything much about it -- looks like it uses the big battery though.

    i can say that all the stuff i have bought from PA has worked as advertised and it is likely a good scope in that style for the price.


    now if it was my AR-15 -- that $99 vortex is awful hard to pass up--LOL---
