    Budget Red Dot Reflex Sight

    I bought a Sightmark Ultra Shot Pro Spec Sight NV QD SM14002 for $105.37 on-line.

    http://www.sightmarkonline.com/product/sm14002.

    So far I am very impressed with its quality. I chose it over other similarly priced reflex sights because it has four reticle patterns (red dot, red dot in a circle, cross-hairs, & cross-hairs in a circle).

    It is night vision compatible which is gimmicky. If I had night vision I would not be using it with a budget reflex sight.

    There is a cheaper model which does not have four reticle patters (Sightmark SM14000) and a more expensive model which includes a side laser (SM14003).

    The other reflex sights I considered are listed below in no particular order.

    The funny thing about these sights is that they cannot be exported to China even though that is where most reflex sights are made.

    I still prefer tube type sights. All that openness of the reflex sight kind of freaks me out. Like stuff will get caught or wedged behind the lens...
    SHADAP VARMINT!

        Similar issues here.

        I try to aim with both eyes open (as is the latest recommendation) but I find it too distracting.

            Have a bushnell trs35, its eh.
            Have a vortex sparc, its a POS mounted on a high recoil firearm.
            Also have a PA micro red dot, and its the xheapest i paid out if all of the sights. It is by far my most favored sight out of my collection. For 50$ you cannot beat it.

            Also, my buddy mounted a sightmark he bought form dicks for 100$ on a 10/22. The mountin hardware broke upon installation.

              I have a few in boxes. No joke, they are dependable enough and accurate enough to throw on a .22 and not worry about it. I like having a bunch of them and only break out the good stuff when I can worry about keeping it safe. When your optics cost three times the cost of the gun, I am not bringing them to the range with 4 other rifles and 4 handguns.

                I've used the trs25 on a 6.8 and 300aac. No problems with the recoil

                  Sorry if it came off as they aren't good enough for higher recoil. That is the usual attack on the less expensive sights, but I only meant that I am not grabbing 5 rifles in cases with EOTechs banging into Aimpoints, and all my .22's are in soft cases. I have hard cases for my more expensive guns, but I would go broke putting everything into a hard case.
