I'm thinking my post belongs here rather than "riflescopes" forum:
I have a Marlin Camp 45 which I think I'd like to put some type of red dot on. Don't wanna spend too much (<$200). Something like the Viper Strikefire looks appealing. The ACOG lok is cool and somewhat fits the profile. Any similar ones y'all might suggest? I don't expect to shooting anything more dangerous than tin cans and pine cones (but ya never know). Small or adjustable dot/reticle size would be preferred. Quick aquisition with accuracy on smallish targets would be the goal.
I've never had a red dot before, but I can't see open sights very well anymore.
I'm not big on requiring "weird" batteries unless their lifetime is fantastic.
Doesn't have to be adjustable. I just don't forsee the use of 5 an 10 MOA dots. I'm not looking for CQB on mansized targets.
I see Bushnell has a very similar ACOG looking site. The Trophy 1x32 MP. I think slight magnifcation might be preferred, but perhaps not a viable option in this site type/price. the Vortex does come witha doubler. The co-witness sghts on the Bushnell might be good...or gimmick.
Anyone have a comparison between the Bushnell, Vortex and Barfska?
I'm in unfamiliar territory here. Other suggestions welcome.
