I have the Burris on a 10-22. Its OK for range work or shooting squirrels.

I have three Aimpoint micros a T-1 and two T-3s'.

The T3 is about $50 less than the T1 and has more adjustment in the visible spectrum. The only thing it doesn't have that that T1 does have is Night Vision Compatability.

Since I can never envision buying a NV device I don't care and would rather have more adjustment in the visible spectrum...

while I am a big fan of Vortex and can get them at cost, I still chose to pay more than double for an Aimpoint PRO......

I've seen a few Vortex red dots. Every last one of 'em failed within a couple of weeks and they killed batteries.

I don't understand why people would recommend something like that.

Mine works great. Everyone I have encountered that uses them recommends them, and that's why I bought one. You are the first person I have ever encountered that stated this. Maybe I'm just lucky...or maybe you weren't. Your mileage may vary.

Everything about the Aimpoint is true, though. I still have a working model 3000 from 1989.

The Micro will actually work.

I'll be the black sheep and strongly recommend you look at the Lucid HD7. I love it and everyone I've showed it to is impressed by it. Assuming you're not getting called up to the SEALS anytime soon, I can't imagine you'll regret it. If you do, you'll be the first I've met.

kind of a off topic question. I got a NIB Sig M400. Only one mag came with the rifle, do these usually come with a couple of mags? I have a suspicion the seller kept one?

I say bypass the Lucid. I purchased one a couple years ago. The first one wouldn't turn on. They did send one out extremely fast however. Their customer service was awesome.

When I received a working optic I was a little disappointed. It was heavy and there was a visible square outlining the reticles. I sold it for a loss.

The desire to have quality optics has nothing to do w/ being called up to the SEALS. Why do you need to be fighting a war in order to demand quality? You don't.

Though it was a good experience I do regret purchasing the Lucid. It put me even further from the quality optic I ended up purchasing.

I will also say go with a quality optic. Aimpoint, Eotech, or trijicon. I prefer the Eotech over the aim point myself, that is personal preference though.

The SEALS comment was of course facetious. I too believe in buying quality. The Lucid is better quality than I will likely make use of. I view a red dot as a CQB tool. As such, I have different expectations of it than a long range scope. Yes it must hold zero and be durable, and I have found the Lucid to be this. For my uses, I don't see twice the utility in an Aimpoint for twice the price it would cost me. As they used to say in Detroit, your mileage may vary.

I own one Vortex, and four Aimpoints.

I like the controls better for the Vortex. Also, I do believe that they have a LIFETIME warranty, vs. Aimpoint's 10-year warranty.

I'm just about of buying a red dot, so this question is kinda important for me. My cousin's buddy has MCS by Armasight for his toy and sais it's great unit. Personally I can't guarantee that MCS is as god as I've heard but I believe I'll choose this one.

Burris?

This is the other one I was looking at

Amazon.com: Burris SpeedDot 135 1 x 35mm Red Dot Sights with Weaver-Style Mounting Rings: Sports & Outdoors

Any advice is welcome, can't wait to have this baby ready...
I have a Burris Speeddot 135 with a 3moa dot and do very well with it.

Holds zero, dot is crisp which makes head shots at 100yds
very doable.

Until mine fails I would find spending more money difficult to justify.

It seems sturdy enough to me.

Good Luck

Aimpoint is where it's at. If it needs to work, you need to spend the money.

If it's just a toy or a range gun and you can deal with making use of the warranty, having batteries that are dead, forgetting to turn it on, etc, Primary Arms would be my low budget option.

I intend to get a Primary Arms red dot for my 15-22, for example.
