    I have an older Strikefire that I've used on a variety of my rifles. It does what it's supposed to do and does it well so no complaints here. A couple years ago though, I picked up a PK-A Venezuela from a member on another forum. Gotta say, the Venezuela is awesome! It's kinda heavy (and expensive) but I get the feeling you could run it over with a truck and it'd still hold zero!

    I have the Vortex Strikefire and Sparc and they do quite well. However, I have AimPoint PRO and AimPoint Comp M4 on my "go to" rifles. Some like the PSA micro and they do look decent as well.

    I don't have a Vortex myself but have tried one of those on a buddie gun and yes there much better than the BSA's , Bushnell and Tasco ones. I only have a Bushnell TRS-25"mini dot" on my MK111 Ruger and one of those cheap Bushnell 40 mm for my turkey gun. Both work very well, no complaints, but those are both for close up use.

    I've had both of those on one of my VZ58's at one time or the other too and they work OK, but not super great, just a small step above open sights IMHO.

    The difference that struck me right right off was how much sharper and smaller the dot was with the vortex with out getting the "Star" effect like you do at longer ranges with the cheaper ones. That's the real difference I saw between them.

    I guess it all depends on what the gun is used for and that will determine what you really need. For someone like 4th where he only has very short ranges to shoot at, one of those cheapies would possibly work just fine. I know for the guns I have them set up on, the cheapies work just fine for those conditions I use those guns in. If I was shooting further away with them a better one would be in order though.
