I'm pretty new to optics but I have been seraching and doing research on this site and others about scopes, holosights, red dots, etc.  Here's my situation.

 

I'm looking for getting this for a friend.  He has a bushmaster AR-15 with a carry handle.  So it would have to mount on the carry handle.  I'd like to get him something that is decent and isn't a total piece of crap.  He got me a Mosin Nagant so I want to get him something decent but I can't afford the top of the line.  I'm going to stay away from Tasco, BSA, Redhead, Famous Maker, Simmons.  I wanted to get an EOTech or ACOG or Aimpoint but I can't afford to spend that kind of cash.  He's into scopes and wants to be able to shoot distances. Leupold is what I'd ideally want to get but I can't fork out the cash for that.  I was looking at the Bushnell Legend 3 9x40 as a good option.  i'd like to keep it in the $150 range.  I also liked the Burris 1x35 Speed dot sight.  What do you all think I should do??  Should i just let him get his own optics so he can get what he wants or would those be alright options? 

 

Any help is greatly appreciated it.

Long distance shooting and 150 dollars don't go together very well. Personally, I would call up SWFA and ask for a gift certificate of some kind. Then, let him fork over a few extra bucks if he really wants to get an ACOG. Have you considered a set of match grade iron sites for his AR? That may be the way to go if you would rather give him a gift.  Never seen a Burris 1x35, just looked it up and it though and it looks pretty nice for its 170 dollar price tag, I'm just afraid the 11moa dot is going to be too big for any kind of long range precision shooting.
