I recently got my first AR pistol in .223/5.56, 8.5" palmetto State armory with a melonite barrel to be exact. However I'm having trouble sighting it in at less than 50 yards. I tried some cheap flip up irons and a sight mark red dot. Since then I've put a laser and wrote it off as a hip fire spray and pray fun gun. Next I bought a Palmetto AR 9 10.5" barrel that accepts Glock mags. I mounted the same two sights to it and could not zero them on this set up either. I recently ordered some MBUS sights and a bore sight to see if that helps. 

What would be your preferred red dot? I would like to not splurge on a EoTech but still have something reliable. The more low profile the better also.

Primary arms has a nice micro red dot that can be had for a very reasonable price.

I run a Bushnell TRS-25 on my all my AR pistol's with no issues. Palmetto state runs then on sale from time to time for $49. I also have iron sights on them with no issues. Are you shooting off a rest to zero. It helps to get them on paper, then fine tune.

I just put a Vortex Venom on a handgun. That’s probably what I’ll put on my AR Pistol when I get it. You can get them for under $200 on sale.
