Recommendations for red dot sight

Postby luv2dune on Fri Nov 07, 2008 9:17 am

Hi, I have an AR-15 carbine and am looking for advice on a red dot for it. Currently I am looking at the ATN Ultra Sight, ATN Digital Ultra Sight and the Burris XTS-135. I prefer a 2-3 MOA dot as I find the smaller 1 MOA makes it a little harder for me to re-center at 100 yards. I have enjoyed Burris scopes for many years now and have not had any problems with them. This rifle was built for fun and shoot anywhere from 25-100 yards with it. Unfortuneately, none of my local shops carry any of these sights for me to look at. Any opinions, hands on reviews or advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The Burris is a superior product. Be aware that you will need a riser to raise the sight to the proper height over the receiver. This MNT-A95 by Leapers is inexpensive and functional.
