Magnified gun sights

Hi guys ,

Looking for a sight for a aeg . I have a red dot currently but want something with abit of magnification. Not looking for anything expensive. Anyone know any half decent ones around the 40 mark ?

 

Plenty of acog types on ebay that look like they will fit the bill but thought I'd give the forum a go first

 

Cheers

be careful with ACOGs - a lot of the cheap ones are x1 so you get no magnification.

 

I doubt you will get anything other than a scope for that price, but good luck.

I have found most sights and scopes below £100 are pretty bad, they just don't spend enough on the glass and they either distort badly or worse are very coloured. Spend a bit more and get a low end real steel scope.

Any suggestions ? Don't fancy a huge amount considering how little it gets used

Konus make good 'real' scopes, they do a 1-4x, 'M31' if I remember correctly, that's good for the money. Vortex are also very good value for money, although the cheapest options from either of these companies will be over £100.

 

I've never seen a particularly good ACOG copy to be honest, as said, hey are either, distorted, coloured or both.

 

What sort of magnification are you after?

I recently brought a VisionKing Short Dot 1.25-5x28 and am impressed with it.

 

It is not a massive amount of magnification being 1.25 - 5 times magification but the image is crystal clear, and it has an illuminated reticule. I can also use it like a red dot at the 1-25 setting for close in work or CQB if I don't get a chance to change it for my T1 micro dot.

 

It was a dream to mount and zero and overall I am really pleased with it.

 

These sights are sturdy and as a result quite heavy and you'll need to buy a mount for it.

 

Here's a pic of mine on the Warsport.

The 5x zoom is more than enough for field play.

 

I picked mine up on eBay for £69.

I use a Bushnell 1.5-4x scope and its very clear as well. The more I play and use scopes/sights the less I am interested in buying the airsoft ones, they are just rubbish. The only one that was even usable was the G&P red dot sight for like £30, I have spent 2x that and they have all been terrible.

I've got a red dot sight already, no idea what brand it is though , but it's been a good one. Just fancied something with abit of zoom. Don't fancy a proper rifle scope style so I'll probably leave it and use the cash on a gun or 2 instead of wasting it on expensive sights
