I understand that neither of these optics are high quality optics, but this gun will primarily be a range carbine so I don't really to need to spend the extra $$$ right now. What are your opinions about each of these optics?

I have the older model of the Bushnell and I'm very happy with it other than it's weird mounting height.   It is not possible for a lower 1/3rd co-witness and seems a little low for true co-witness.   The reticle is great.   The optic is heavy and well built.
The only thing I don't really like about the Strikefire is the 4MOA dot.   If that size is fine with you then I would choose that optic.
Primary Arms has a 3 MOA Aimpoint look-a-like with a mounting height of your choice for under $100.   I steered my brother into one for his first budget optic and he is happy with it.

A friend of mine recently put a Bushnell TRS-25 on his 12ga auto HD gun, and it is surprisingly well-made, considering it's puny price. I think he paid $100 for it, but I'm not positive about that. The first day, he fired over 100rds of mixed slugs/00 buckshot (too much fun to quit, even with a shoulder getting sore), and the sight performed as well as one would hope. Since then (500rds or so), he's had nothing but good things to say about it.
