recommend a red dot/acog

Recommended Posts

Go on amazon, search for red dot sight, sort by ascending price and pick the 1st one you fancy. They come in all shapes but will pretty much do the same thing. You will probably have to wait about a month for it to arrive as almost certainly it will be coming from China.

I use one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/TopOutdoor-Military-Tactical-Airsoft-Riflescope/dp/B00DYICQXY/ref=sr_1_2?s=sports&ie=UTF8&qid=1391739509&sr=1-2&keywords=acog+sight

I just like the look of an acog sight. There are lots of different shapes to choose from that all do a similar job. One thing to bear in mind is are you likely to want to use a magnifier at some point in the future? An acog would look silly with a magnifier, something like this would be better for that:

Also bear in mind that eotech style sights will often work with a protective shield in front but on the other hand some of the tubular sights might fit a killflash which will protect the sight and prevent people seeing the sun reflect in your sight. Also bear in mind how much rail space you have.

41V%2BmATsBDL._AA160_.jpg-takes up very little space so you can fit a magnifier behind easily but will take some sort of button cell.

But with sights the main consideration as will most things airsoft is what do you think will look cool :)

Aliexpress for the cheap red dot sights you can get everywhere else, but even cheaper. Dunno if that search URL will keep the 'arrange by price' setting, but you'll need to scroll down past a few wholesale offers where the price is like threpence if you buy a shipping crate full. The single item lots start at £7.15 inc shipping, but this one is £6.80 because it's on sale. This is the first tube type on the list @£8.70 + £3.68 Shipping, but this is the cheapest and the seller has a feedback score of 4.8/5 from 27 (all 4 or 5 stars) 1x35 / red/green reticule / multi-setting brightness / moody Walther trades.

Also consider http://www.taiwangun.com/en/red-dot-sights

Benefits are that they are known to be a reputable seller, they are in the EU so no unexpected customs charges and you will get the sight faster.

Plus free shipping if you spend over £55ish
