    Default reflex sight suggestions?

    I recently put a rifle together with a oracle upper and a short Ace entry buttstock, so a conventional scope wont work.
    Does anyone have a recommendation for an inexpensive reflex type sight? I only have a $100 budget on this.

    Hmmm...both good choices, in fact they both were at the top of the reviews of "Best Cheap Red Dot Sights" here:

    I have about five of those critters. NcStar D4B @45$ on the low end, two TruGlo with one being 2x, a 1stGen AimPoint, and my $220 Kobra I bought in a group buy. I use one of the TruGlo on one of my pellet guns(crosman 1377) for bird control.

    the PA units work good and ain't expensive, also heard good things about the vortex red dot types for a little more.

    you might check out the optasin mamba scope over at SWFA too, it is a 1-4x with a real 1x on the low end and it doubles nicely as a 4x scope or a red dot-- i think thir $150 ish with the mount--

    i have a $35 AIM reflex i got from SMG for $35-- i am daresom to brag on it-- but so far it works--knock on wood--

    i like the optical adjustments and a little magnification myself-- the optisan fills the bill quite nicely for a CQB type of optic on a budget.

    "Bushnell Trophy" Think $69 on sale? Love it, nice bright and choices of settings. Battery life? not the best. Keep it off till ready to use. Spare batteries in the hand grip.

    Primary Arms or Vortex on a budget.

    Personally though I've seen to many people throw away to much money on cheap glass. I would save my pennies or eat mac and cheese for a few months and save up for a Trijicon or Aimpoint. which is the route I'm going. Buy once, cry once.

    o.d.a.k. don't forget Eotech if your going in that price range.



    If you looking to spend about $100, then get a model that's getting replaced by an updated version, here's three examples (and PSA has sales on a lot of them).
