    Hey guys, I've been looking for a decent red dot for my AR-15. As much as I would like to spend $450+ on an EOTech, I can't bring myself to do it and need the cash for other things. So my question is if anyone has any experience with bushnell? I've used their binoculars, but never their gun sights. I'm looking for a good red dot/reflex sight with a decent price, so hit me with some suggestions if you have them. Here is a link to what I'm looking at. Not necessarily buying from this website though.

    Probably up to $200ish is what I would like to spend. Maybe a little more depending on what it is.

    Thanks for the help!

    Good point, I might just splurge on the EOTech. I'm slowly talking myself into it.

    Love mine - I don't think there's a faster red dot out there for anything under 75 yds or so.

    If you only want to spent 200ish go with a Burris XTS123 or a Sig Sauer red dot i dont remember the model but its the same as a Aimpoint T1

    In the $200 range I'd go with a Burris Fastfire 2 or 3. It's a micro dot, so it sort of uses a different philosophy than your larger dot or HWS, but I found it to work way, way better on a shotgun and for closer targets in 3-gun when using the blaster, because there's really no tube or "window" size discussion. You mount it on a riser in front of your rear sight and it's just there and incredibly simple to use.

    Primary Arms sells a very similar unit.

    Sight marks red dot isn't terrible for the price. There are worst but there are better. I have the sightmark red dot with 3x flip to the side magnifier. Cant complain. It holds its zero.
