Default Affordable AR Sight ?

Hello,

I have a pistol caliber AR (9mm) and need a sight for it. This rifle is going to see little to no use and I do not have a lot of cash. Is anyone familiar with the sight in this link? Other suggestions under $50 are also appreciated.

Thank you in advance~

Does it have a front sight? What about just running a cary handle with irons?

For $100 you can get a decent Primary Arms red dot. If your budget is less than that, I would recommend some cheap irons.

It does have a front sight. i actually really like the idea of the carry handle with irons, and not just from a budget point of view. time to investigate, thanks guys!

Consider waiting and spending just a bit more. A little more money will buy a lot more optic.

This is one of or best reviewed red dots:

If your carry handle is not removable, there are carry handle mounts that will bring the optic down into your line of sight, instead of having to raise your head to use a red dot on top of a mount on top of a carry handle.

If you're a member over at AR15.com, detachable A2 carry handles go on sale in the EE ALL the time for ~$40-50. Here's an example. These are already sold but you get the idea: http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_7_25/12...isc_parts.html

I have both primary arms m3 multi and the Bushnell tr25 micro dot. I'd highly recommend either of them
