Default Red Dot scopes

anyone have any sugestions for good Red dot scopes for an AR 15? i am looking for one. it would need to be durable, wether resistant, have unlimmited eye rielef, and be perallex free. the ones i have looked at are Eotech, and Aimpoint. and they have all the above, but cost a minimum of $450, so if i can get on just as nice for less than great, but i will not settle for a scope that dose not fit the above description just to save some $$$$$. thanks

Good question! I am also interested in a red dot or green dot. Most likely we will hear you get what you pay for. I've read a lot of reviews and seems like you get an even amount of pro vs con on every model????

HM. what you are looking for probably will not need to cost 1/2 as much as what i am looking for, assuming its for hunting. it would not need to have unlimmited eye reliefe, or be parellex free. thoughs requirments for me are because im looking for somthing combat ready. with extreamly fast target acusition, and no parelex so i can shoot it out of any position without worrying if im not looking at the scope straight on. there are many nice scope out there for hunting that you could pick up for only about $100-$200.

Thanks for the link and you're correct I wanted to put one on the 870 project. Right now it has a 1.75x5 scope but I'd like to use it for another rifle. The red dots seem a perfect fit for a slug gun if they can take the pounding.

High recoil caliber rating—tested with .375 H&H Magnum for 1000 rounds. i would call that a pounding.

reviews are mostly from users on ar type rifles. I wonder if it would hold up on the 12 ga slug gun? Good warranty if there was a problem.

Ya I saw the heavy recoil rating just was hoping for some shot gunner reviews.

I recently changed my red dot BSA to a leepers red dot, come with flip scope caps, can go red or green, dim to bright on both. I got it on my benelli nova 12ga. N love it. Got pics in turkey thread. I've dropped two birds with the new scope already.

in my origanal post i mentioned that i was looking at the two leareds in the industry that cost $450 and up, and that i was looking to see if anyone knew of a scope that would be a little less and have the same fetures ( unlimmeted eye relief, parelex free, and stand up to the harshest conditions). not to be fresh, but i looked up that scope and its for airsoft or air guns, it has none if the fetures i mentioned and it cost $30. if a $30 scope was 1/2 as good as a $450 scope the expencive guys would never sell another scope again.
