Help me choose budget-friendly optics

Recommended Posts

Mine just arrived from PSA. The "Bushnell" is a gold/yellow color, not white. The dot comes from the 4 o'clock position.

On settings 9-11 there's a fairly significant red ring around the edge if the glass. The further away my eye is from the optic, the worse it gets. It may not be as noticeable in in the sunlight, but I'll have to test that tomorrow.

Great topic since I'm now in market. Bought a chopped M1 carbine with a numrich mount and rings. Receiver was tapped and it uses the rear dovetail as part of the mounting. No rear sight.

because of the rings, I'm leaning towards the recommended Burris.

(Now 179.99 at PSA)

for 100 yards or less shooting -good choice? Open to other options or opinions.

thanks in advance!
