I bought an AR last week, and we talked about that. It came with no sights, and a crappy little BSA red dot on it. Okay, fine.
I was casting around for a nice red dot sight, and was searching around YouTube ad stumbled upon something called the SPRC-AR from Vortex. I had a couple of tabs open looking for he best price and MidwayUSA had one of those ADD TO CART FOR PRICE things. I clicked on it, and immediately proceeded to checkout. The price was very favorable. Very favorable indeed. Lit $131.00 in the door, with the NRA roundup.
It came in today and I am favorably impressed. Easy to mount, it was almost effortless. It used an AAA battery in the riser. It's not a Trijicon, or a a NightForce, but it is a nice little $200 red dot, and Vortex has a forever guarantee. I'll take it out in the ext week or so and establish a battlesight zero.
Everyone needs an AR around the house. If nothing else, it pisses off the leftists.
