Hey @Daedalus, what are your thoughts on the Advanced Micro Dot now that you've had it for a year? I'm looking for a red dot, and it's between it and the Sparc AR.
Well I have one on my AK and one was just removed from my AR and moved to my KSG I really like them they are clear the dot is a 2moa dot and the battery lasts for ever.

That said if I was going to buy a new one I would go with the Holosun with the ACSS reticle only because it it rocks and it has the built in ranging and hold over marks.

You read my mind lol. I was just reading a few reviews on the Holosun. It looks like a great red dot. I like that you can turn the ACSS reticle on and off. I'll keep an eye out around Black Friday.

If PA did a Platinum Series scope in a 4-24 for 6.5 Grendal in FFP I would buy that before I went with the Vortex.

I haven't done much research on the Sparc 2 yet. I was reading about the Holosun HS503G Daedalus mentioned, and it looks like a standout option. I'll probably run mbus for a few months before I buy a red dot. Maybe....lol.
Like I said that Halosun is just down right awesome. 50K Hour battery as well as the ACSS Gen 2 reticle. if it had not been for wanting magnification and the 1-6 and 1-8 now have the ACSS Gen 2 with chevron I would have gone with that and a flip out 3x on my ar.
