Look at PrimaryArms. Still Chinese, but good stuff. Questions.... Do you really need three different sights on one gun? What kind of OPs are you planning on running?
with the scope that i have now, it is very hard to find a target within about 25 yards, as the scope blocks the irons. but i also dont want to lose the longer range capacitys of the centerpoint
I have seen 2x red dots and they are ok at least. This just seems contrived and heavy.
What rifle you mounting it on?
The Nikons are very good for the money, good glass. Anything over 4x makes short range a bit tunnel visioned. Think the Nikon PS I have is 2-7x and at 2x is great at that range.
BTW red dots shoot fine at longer ranges at least as well if not better than irons.
the rifle is a S308 that curently has a 22" barrel, but im having the barrel choped to 18"
