Ok, I know this is a hot topic on every forum, but here’s sitchyation!, so hang on for this ride!
I have an AT3 Red Dot on my Sub2K, it’s fine but “seeing” how I have astigmatism, I can only have the brightest up to 3 clicks, after that it becomes fuzzy and oblong! So I purchased a Votatu P3X prism scope for my AR. I like this scope, but these old eyes can’t use it passed 25 yards! So I’m looking for a budget scope that has enough magnification to get me to 100 yards. When I say budget, I only paid $107 for the Votatu so I plan on returning it and stay around $100-$125ish
Now, I know some purest here are salivating about jumping all over me for not spending more on something better, but right now I just need a replacement. I only use my AR for plinking and conversation. I’m not a sharpshooter nor am I interested in being one! I just want to hit the target and have fun!
Having said the above, I know a little bit about scopes, but by far I’m not that knowledgeable!
I need to purchase it off Amazon because that will be my exchange Avenue. I have found this scope, listed below. It has 4-12 magnification and I’ve found someone on YouTube who actually did a pretty thorough review on it, putting it through a practical testing and benchmarks, and he was surprised at this price that it actually was not bad. The other reason I’m leaning towards it, is because it also come with a red dot on top for close shooting, it also comes with a green laser, which I plan on not using. My experience with cheap lasers is they only work in very low light/night time. I’m also inclined not to co-witness with my A2 front sight, I’m not interested in it at all, this scope comes with a riser. I also want to permanently mount it, no side or canted mounting of optics for me, so the red dot on top will come in handy.
As far as inexpensive products go, I feel it’s hard to pass judgment unless you have experience with it or you know someone that has. Any opinions or advice, based on my situation, will be very much appreciated.
