Yes - I have looked at that before. If I ever buy another rifle and need some type of red dot - I plan to give that 1 a try. I did a lot of reading on it - and everyone has positive things to say about it.

Is it a reticular like the real ACOG or just a red dot that looks like an ACOG?

I think it is a T type of reticle, with a dot in the middle of the T
I have one of the older ones of these. It is pretty much the same but does not have the built-in BUIS on the top as the one in the picture.

It is ROCK SOLID though, and the dot is a T-dot with a 1MOA circle in the middle. You can adjust the level of brightness to 5 settings for red or green(More like yellow to me though).

Works well, and the Green (yellow) reticle is very good in low-light.

If anyone wants pics of anything let me know I'll post it.

I've been extremely tempted to pick up an Airsoft optic on try it on my PS90... just because there is very little recoil and an airsoft scope may holdup well and I don't want to shell out $1200 on the latest ACOG with ballistic reticle and Doctor sight... here's an actual 4x ACOG replica (no illumination) that can be gotten for under $200...

For range use - that may be fine. But honestly - I wouldn't use an airsoft optic for a self defense application. If all you have is $200, I'd get this optic they are referring to now.

Or, for around $300, you can find an N Battery Eotech (that is what I have)

I agree.

i tried two 'cheap' optics on my rifles before. One was an airsoft Aimpoint clone, the other was a 'famous maker' 2-6x short scope that was sold as a rifle scope, not airsoft by AIMsurplus.

Given, I used them on my tactical AR, but with the NATO compensator and hydraulic buffer, it has the same if not less recoil than my PS90 does.

The aimpoint clone, losened up the optics internally after about a mag and a half, so 40-50shots.

The AIMsurplus 2-6x scope, survived about 120rounds before the focusing/magnification piece that you turn to adjust it seperated from the inside, making it stuck at 4x.

(On another note, I bought a second 2-6x scope at the same time, and that one is still in one piece after 300rounds on my AK74 bullpup.)
