Reliable Optics for a 22 or 9mm

Postby stonedkirby on Sat Jun 19, 2010 2:45 am

Im looking for a reliable and accurate sight for a marlin 795. recoil is minimal obviously, and i currently have the barska mutli reticle electro sight for my marlin 60, which i love. its accurate, it was easy to sight in, holds zero and i love the 3 MOA reticle. however this time around i want something different but decent quality for my new toy :)
preferably something with a tube design.

I want 3 MOA preferably but will settle for 5. And something for under 80.

Also, for a glock 9mm, what would you recommend in red dot, reflex or holo, an economical durable sight. Non tube designs preferably. Eotech, aimpoint etc are not an option. id be looking at $150-$200 max.Thank you

Starting with a red dot for your Glock, I would recommend the Burris Fastfire II. This is an excellent mini red dot that can be mounted with a base plate that will use the existing rear sight dovetail on your Glock. The entire set up will be around $250.00, but that will be all you need and will be a great system for you.

As for a red dot for your new Marlin 795, I would go with the Tasco Propoint 1x30mm. Not the most expensive red dot, but it will fit the 3/8'' rail grooved receiver on your marlin and is truly top quality. All too often the Propoints get overlooked but they are a top notch sight and can hold their own against the "higher" competition.
