    Good Red Dot under $200?

    Yesterday I took out the M4 to check the Walmart Red Dot I have had on it for a while now.

    Took some shots saw that it was off. I turned some screws and took some more shots. I did this couple more times to no avail.
    On one shot in particular just after adjusting I watched as the dot dropped. This means that the adjustments are sticking.
    THIS SIGHT IS LONGER USABLE!!!!!!!!

    So after several years of using this $39 walmart red dot, its time to spend some real money and get something more reliable.

    I don't NEED (or need to spend the money for) a $400 or $1200 red dot. If I had the $$ I would. Unfortunately airsoft scopes don't hold up to constant .223 use which it too bad because I can afford those prices.
    The Elcan Specter in two tone gold black with QD mount and back up red dot mounted on it is really nice looking.

    Anyway. I have kind of narrowed my search to two.

    And the Bushnell 1X MP 1x32



    Both of these are 1X optics.

    Anybody have any other ideas for under $200?

    I run an Aimpoint on my primary, and bought Black Spider optics for my back-up guns. Watching Mookie beat the **** out of one and stay zeroed made me a believer.

    I'm keeping my eye out for a good condition used one.

    I'm sure a used Eotech is good too, although if I had to guess, I'd say an Aimpoint may be slightly more robust (If you don't see any dings on the aluminum exterior and it's not badly scuffed, it has likely not seen much action)...plus some of the models were probably a little less expensive to begin with, so a used affordable may be easier to find.

    But good luck hunting for one!

    Never seen anything as fast on target as the Eotech. My one complaint with my 552 is battery life. I've had good luck with Vortex and hear Primary Arms has some pretty good dots.

    How about a used Aimpoint, those things are seriously solid, should be able to find one of the older models in a fairly un-abused condition that some gear whore is selling to make room for one of the newer models
