There's no 'best budget sight' just like there's no 'what am bestest gun'... it's largely personal preference, anything specifically for airsoft is 99.999% of the time an LED reflex sight all that changes is the shape of the reticle and the housing, so if you buy a cheap EoTech clone it'll have largely the same internals as if you bought a cheap AimPoint clone.

 

Personally I like the AimPoint T1 micro style on a high mount, allows you to get your face down close enough to see through it even when wearing full face protection (I like my teeth), though I've in the past used an EoTech clone and it was also very good.

 

One thing to note however is that it's NOT worth buying a 'real steel' holographic or red dot sight for an airsoft gun, while a real AimPoint T1 can give you a 2MOA dot at 100yards and hold zero on a 50cal, an airsoft gun isn't accurate enough to take advantage of that, not even a souped up sniper rifle. Heck, really they're not even accurate enough to properly take advantage of a chinasoft replica!

I myself am very interested in these two sights

I was afraid getting of a Chinese clone so these look like a safe bet for a decent sight

Plus one of the guys at my match today was using the smaller one so I will assume they are decent, should have asked him though :-/
