Sadly,I'm not very tacticool. and I don't adorn my weapons with very many do-dads.

I would however like a small red dot that I could mount in front of a flip up sight on a flat top.
So far I haven't had much luck but I have seen the Aimpoint Micro Dot on the web.
I haven't handled one and don't know if they would work well on their own.

Anybody have one?
And if so how small are they and will the front sight post block my view?

Too expensive for me.

I had one for a short time. They are very nice but it didn't work well for me due to using constant up BUIS. With the rear sight and FSB the rather small window of the micro made it difficult to pick up the dot quickly. I'm sticking to my M2's for these reasons.

If I were to do a future build with one it would be equipped with fold down front and rear BUIS.

I have one mounted so it gets a 1/3 lower co witness. You get used to it and don't even notice the front sight.

It much smaller than anything else on the market right now as far as top of the line dot sights. Very light weight too.

I love mine, and am getting another for my second build.

Hope this helps a little.

Got mine there, and he is cheaper than anyone else.

I have two mounted on ARs with LaRue mounts.

I like them. Light, fast sight picture. Long lasting batteries.

The only thing that I don't like about them is that they need batteries to operated. Great for range work, classes, competition. You can add a 3X magnifier in front of it a' la the Aimpoint M3.

My GTG (go-to-gun) has an ACOG. Doesn't need batteries and still works well in low light.

can't seem to find the T-1 in his store... I'm interested in the NV compatibility.

Light, robust, easy to see, battery life and protection are good.

That's the perfect red dot and irons setup.
