Guntards: opinions on red-dots and/or Reflex sights. Specially the “Sig Sauer” (not really made by Sig) ROMEO5
What do y’all recommend insofar as red-dots or reflex sights? I’m asking about the ones you regret having lost in that tragic boating accident, so it’s a hypothetical of course.

I’ve had good luck with Holosun. Looking at that little Sig ROMEO5. That’s pretty affordable and I’ve read a lot about it.

Thoughts? On ROMEO5 or any others?

My buddy just got a Sig Sauer MSR . Its a 2moa dot for longer range shots and it has flip up lens covers for cheaper than the romeo 5.

Only down side it the 2moa dot needs to be turned up to a higher power setting in daytime .

But it has an outside diameter ring around the glass that lights up too to let you know the optic is perfectly level which is bad ass

If youre go go for the romeo 5 you mind as well just get the bushnell trs25 and a 1" utg riser for 70bucks less.

The trs25 is an awesome 3moa dot and you can use it on the first power setting cause its 3 moa and pretty bright even in daytime if you got good eyes

I actually like those 35-40$ reg/green multi reticle reflex sights. Theyre pretty cool

And they actually are pretty decent

I bought 2 Romeo5 this summer, the price point was good
I paid something like $150 each. They work as
advertised and I like the instant-on feature.

If I was doing it over, I might check out the Holosun
with solar input.

Yes thats why I bought them. I have several lasers
but battery life makes them questionable so I tried
out a TRS25? and accidently left it on for a couple
months. The Romeo5 has a motion sensor which turns on
and a timeout of 30 seconds or something.

Vortex stuff is good too consider them.
I bought the strikefireII It’s a 2moa covers about 6 inches at 100yards. I’ve got no problem seeing the dot in full sun on low power. 2 or 4 moa options and several optics to choose from for the application.
Imo it’s best bang for buck. Good quality lens and lifetime warranty. I’d stay away from cheap red dots.
I’ve put at least 3k rounds through my AR with vortex has held zero so far.

Just got an EOtech 512. That sight is utterly incredible.

It's worth the price tag. I've used other types of optics before. But the 512 takes the take.

Target acquisition is instant, visions is so clear all the way, common battery.

Coming from a guy with one eye. The EOtech 512 allows me to easley fire accurately left or right handed.

The most incredible sight.

Placed on PTR 91.

This is what I have. Really light and works very well. Magpul pro lr iron sights, and a Vortex 3x flip up scope.

I've played around for a long time with lots of different setups and this is what I've settled on.

The gun is very light, easy to handle, and gives you lots of different options for lots of different situations.

I’m going out on a limb and say that’s a misprint. My guess would be closer to 12oz but hell I don’t know.

Kamala Harris is not a Natural Born Citizen. She's illegally running.

Used by the Founders...
Book I of The Law of Nations, Chapter XIX, § 212 (Joseph Chitty numbering) – “Citizens and natives”
reads: 'The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to
its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in
the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by
the children of the citizens
, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all
their rights.' 1758 Emerich de Vattel

Oh' What the Hell, do I look like I want to die in some nursing home one day...
America must have 4 new Constitutional Amendments...
1. Drug Tests and Mental Evaluations on all politicians and judges randomly five times per year.
2. Term Limits for Federal politicians and judges.
3. Mental and health standards for Supreme Court Justices and retirement age set.
4. A 'Star Chamber' of elected Natural Born Citizens (no attorney's) to ivestigate, try, and prosecute the politicians and government employee's as they see fit.
