Are you confuse to pick the best red dot sight under $100? After lots of research and testing, making sure which thing can hold up to the recoil of large caliber rifle, shotguns. I have noted down a list of three budge best red dot sight under $100.
Firstly let me start with the less expensive option of my list. This is the Tacticon Predator V1.
Tacticon Predator V1 is a high-quality aluminum shaft. It’s actually a red dot and green dot combo sights with 5 brightness setting. This sight is water and fog proof. And it comes with a lifetime warranty with an extra battery (1 lithium-ion) included. If you do read the reviews of the optic you will see that Tacticon arms really stand behind their products.
Another cool feature is that it comes with flip-up lens covers. You can flip up very easily with your thumb. But this lens cover holds really tight.
This sight is designed for the AR platform. So whether you shoot with an AR-15, AR-10 or it’s AR- 12 all works same with this sight. It is designed to co-witness perfectly with your sights. Now co-witness that I’ll say, a co-witness is good enough to go with your job done.
Most people use this sight as there backup sight. Once you zeroed the sight it’ll work as your regular sight. Its mount and windage are fully adjustable and it is schematic for any hunting or tactical rifle.
Next one on my list is Truglo 30mm dual color dot sight.
Truglo 30mm dual color dot sight has also red and green dot setting. In fact, it’s green dot is very good if you are shooting in bright daylight. It is much more visible than a red dot.
This one is also waterproof and fog proof but it also scratches or shock resistant with Anti-reflection coating on the lens. The best part of this optic is a nice wide 30mm field view. This makes an excellent combo with AK-47. While the mount is farther away from your hand guard.
Unlikely this sight not specifically designed for AR platform. So as a nice low profile mount if you want just a co-witness with AR style sights all you need a riser.
Because this sight has a large site of view it suspects the smallest riser would be perfect for co-witnessing with AR style sights.
At the last, if the list is the Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 Red Dot Sight.
Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 Red Dot Sight is currently better of my list. Not only the Bushnell reputable manufacturer. Because of the quality of making good sight and excellent customer service.
This is also the smallest optic of my list but it is actually the heaviest. That’s because of its really overbuild construction.
Firstly it’s multi-coated lenses. That means it’s not only anti clear but also scratch or shock resistant. It also comes with Unlimited eye relief for easy two eye use.
It’s a Multi-coated optics with 11 brightness adjustment setting. It’s very easy to mount and also work with most Picatinny rails.
It also overbuilds to be waterproof, fog proof (nitrogen inside), shockproof. Now like I said before it’s the smallest optic on the list for just a 25mm field view. So make sure the rifle you gonna put this on is one you can get up close to your eye.
It has just a dark site. It does not come with a red and green dot like the other red dot in full daylight. The red dot is not just perfect like the green dot, especially when you shoot back to back. But in this back to shooting green dot is ok.
This optic is really solid overbuild red dot sight that can handle just about anything through on it.
