Just what the title says....

I need to find a light weight red dot that will hold a zero

does not need to be "Tactical" or "combat ready"

just something that co witnesses and holds that zero....


weight is an issue because I am putting it on my AR pistol....

aimpoint T1

not sure about cowitness, but I expect you could get a riser of appropriate height

Check out Vortex's Strikefire and SPARC.

They're an industry partner with a forum here.

The strikefire comes with either a high or low ring. You want the high ring for absolute co-witness. I believe the SPARC comes with plates so you can adjust it to whatever height you want.

My strikefire holds zero just fine on my STG-556.

is the strike fire the same size as the aimpoint comp series...

is the SPARC similar in size/weight to the H1 or T1

Primary Arms gen3/4 micro dot with their base, $100ish.

mine is on a larue mount and is fantastic for the price, $200ish with larue mount (mine is the HK mount so its not a perfect co-witness. they do have other models that will do that though.. I like the HK mount for the lower site above bore axis.

SUPER lightweight

I have one of these as well in an offset mount. They are excellent for the money, and Marsh is an excellent vendor to deal with.

+1

Mine has 1/3 cowitness with a stock front sight, magpul MBUS on the rear.

I use the tall LaRue riser.

Same setup works with a MI reas sight on my wife's carbine.

I love that sight.
