Bought the $90 one for my beretta storm and I really like it.
Looking for advice on which one would work out best for an AR.

I have their latest generation Micro and their Gen 2 1-6 ACSS on my ARs.



Mine sits on a Daniel Defense non-QD mount.





They are both good optics, especially for the price, and serve the rifles well for their roles. The Micro sits on my HD gun, a 14.5" KISS rifle, and the 1-6 is mounted on my Mini-Recce 14.5" rifle.

Correct me if I am wrong, but Holosun makes the Primary Arms version of this?

If so,

http://www.amazon.com/HOLOSUN-Micro-Red-Sight-Riser/dp/B00KOOEZ6W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417202360&sr=8-1&keywords=holosun

There is a $20 coupon to bring the price down to 151.

I just got one and it looks very nicely made. Dot is clear and glass is nice.

I might be sending it back though for the unexpected purchase of the Aimpoint ML3 deal that opticsplanet had this morning.

Thanks for clarifying that!

Is the number in-stock ticker on the items pretty accurate on their website?

I bought the latest red dot micro version for my HD AR and love it. Crisp, clean, a sharp dot that you can
set to the best for you eyes, and they say the battery lasts five years. whats not to like?

Why does the Primary Arms version have 3yr warranty vs lifetime on the Holosun?

PA's is always on while the Holosun has an auto on/off feature. If I'm remembering one of Marshall's previous posts correctly, that's the reason why.

I have one of the new ones. Push buttons. It's been on for several months.

So far I am impressed with the battery life.

I would recomend the new advanced micro dot! I received mine a couple weeks ago,and have been very pleased with the quality of the optic. I just added the Tango Down cover to the dot last night.
