Holosun is the way to go for “cheap” optics

    I tend to be rather thrifty (cheap) when it comes to scopes. I have found the Nikon Prostaff Target EFR 3-9x40 AO an excellent scope usually under $200. I also use some old US made redfields wide view I picked up on ebay for about $100. They have great glass and some models are similar to the Vietnam era USMC scopes that had Accu Range and Accu trac to boot. On my serious AR I have a Holosun 510c.

    My term for the kind of purchases I make these (all?) days is "Frugal".

    Another term I use a lot is "Adequate".

    These terms describe modest goals and purchases without suggesting negativity.

    Lots of nice Nikon glass out there on clearance right now since they are getting out of the sporting business.

    I have a reflex optic that has a transient home (quick release mount, shares the rail alternatively with the Bushnell AR Drop Zone, also quick release mount) on my M4gery. It's a Vortex S.P.A.R.C. AR. I like the smaller Dot.

    Batteries are off the Aisle display at Wally's; and the quality is quite good without being priced way up there in the Stratosphere.

    The rifle also has Folding Angled BUIS mounted permanently.

    My Spotter is a Vortex Nomad.

    I have a vortex venom , 1moa dot? Maybe 2 moa.  I like the small dot too. I really liked it on a couple ARs, but eventially put it on my 10-22 (breakdown, magpul x22 stock) in my BoB. Fantastic on the 10-22.

    My 10/22 is thoroughly worked over (Trigger internals, Bolt reface, Pre-2000 Kimber/Anschutz style stock and Kimber/L-W barrel), and carries a Mueller 8-32x44 Target Dot Scope. The work, not including the scope, cost $850 in 1996; one of an ancient gunsmith's final projects.

    Been driving tacks since 1996; see small, hit small...
