Looking for a reflex/ red dot sights for an AEG for in between £30-50. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to point me in the direction of any websites or your own sales threads aswell.

I understand your point Sacaranthe. I didn't really mean it as a "optic wanted" I wanted more advice on reliable brands etc. places to buy.

 

Although reading back it does seem like more of a "wanted" thread. That wasn't my intention.

Yes, I apologise, recently general discussion has been under siege from topics better suited elsewhere, I'm sorry taking that out on you.

With a protector (cheaper options available):

In that price range, the brand names may vary but they all just come out of similar (or often the same) factories in china. Whether it says Nuprol or G&G or whatever, all just rebranding.

 

All the cheap EoTech copies I've tried have been really bad, same with all the cheap T-1 copies. Only decent red dot I've had under £50 was one of these I bought about 9 years ago:

Haven't used it much for a while, but last I checked it still worked. Only clone red dot I've ever had that had genuinely clear glass in it, no blue or brownish tint what-so-ever. Pretty durable with a well built tube as well all things considered.

For less than £50... I'd chance it with an aimpoint repro, I've bought probably 6 aimpoint T1 knockoffs over the last 4 years or so and only one is still working... BUT, it's still working after thousands of rounds on a TM MP7 which kicks pretty hard and the dot is perfectly clear.

 

Failing that, ironsights and point shooting.
