I really don`t run optics on my carbines anymore,so but I really liked the EOTECH
The T-1 micro is an awesome piece. I went with Eotech on mine bc my bad eyes just like it better. Otherwise I would have run the T1 for sure. I have thought about switching more than once.
Valid point. Some people with astigmatism can't run the T-1 with both eyes open (the proper way for a lot of situations), and some of the Eotechs work better for them.
Here's some optics that won't really break the bank (depending on your financial abilities, and views on optics):
Leupold Delta Point 7.5 MOA: $400
Leupold DeltaPoint Reflex Sight, 7.5 MOA Delta Reticle, Cross Slot Mount, Matte Finish, Warranty
Leupold Delta Point 3.5 MOA: $380
Leupold DeltaPoint Reflex Sight 3.5 MOA Dot Matte Finish
Aimpoint PRO: $480
Aimpoint PRO Patrol Rifle Red Dot Sight 2 MOA Dot Black Finish 12841
Burris Fast Fire II: $200
Burris FastFire II Red Dot Reflex Sight 4 MOA Dot CR2032 Battery Picatinny Mount
Personally, I wouldn't mind any of those. I greatly prefer the T-1 and Eotech, but I wouldn't bitch too much with a Delta Point or Burris.
Actually, I might end up getting a Fast Fire II for my AK, but I hear a lot of talk about it not being parallax-free under 50 meters, which is a huge problem for me...since 75% of the rounds I fire from the AK are closer than 50 meters.
If you're not expecting to do much "rapid acquisition defensive/offensive/tactical" shooting, then being parallax free might not be a huge concern to you, so the Burris would work just fine. All depends on what you need / want.
EDIT: Actually, buy the Burris. Then tell me if it's worth a shit
Yep I have astigmatism so the Eotech indeed works better for me.
I've got astigmatism, but I've been able to run T-1s just fine (so far). I'm sure in time my eyes will get worse, and I'll have to switch to Eotech.
Sorry I'm not adding anything useful, but this pic reminded me of how much I love ghillie suits and want one to freak people out with.
It turns out I DO have something (kinda) relevant to add:
this one will freak everyone out
I've got a pretty bad astigmatism in my left eye, so vision in that eye sucks. Luckily, my right eye is 20/20 and again luckily my dominant eye.
I do plan on doing tactical shooting, whether events or classes(both, likely). I would prefer something that allows me to keep both eyes open, I pretty much always shoot that way.
I've seen Vortex mentioned on some of the AR forums I've lurked recently. Are they any good? I know, buy once...
I've heard good things about the Vortex Strikefire, but I've never used one, or personally know anyone that has. Everything I've read has been good, though.
On the same token, I've read a lot of good about the Burris, as long as being parallax free under 50 isn't a concern
Personally, I'd build the gun, and run it with irons for a while. Get used to it (hell, I've done a LOT of training with irons...even did a 15 month deployment with strictly irons), then decide on what optic you want.
Maybe after you spend some time with the gun, your wants might change (probably not, you've got a great gun built in your head), and you might find a few extra bucks to open up your optics choices.
well i ya got the funds go ACOG!!!!
That's exactly what I plan to do. I'm honestly fine with irons so that won't be a problem. I'm not saying optics aren't great, but I don't feel the need for them.
I'm ready to start picking up parts now, unfortunately most places are out of stock of stripped lowers and the Daniel Defense LPK I want. Hell, it seems parts in general are hard to come by right now(except of course for furniture and shit like that)-particularly the BCM stuff. The more I've looked them up, the more I'm sold on them.
edit: And speaking of parts, I've decided to NOT go with a completed upper. If I'm going to build my AR, I'm going to build it all the way. I won't save much(or any) money doing it as such, but it's not all about saving money. With the budget I've given myself to build, I could buy a damn Daniel Defense from Buds and call it a day.
I like your style
Everybody is out of stock. My original idea was to buy a complete carbine from BCM, but they're going to be filling back orders for quite a while. It's the nature of the business; scare people with electing a democrat, then scare them some more with talk of banning guns, and the makers make a lot of money.
