BLACK RIFLE PROJECT: It is entirely possible to spend as much or more on your optics for an AR rifle as you pay for your actual AR rifle. There are many sights suitable for AR rifles and which one is the most appropriate hinges mostly on the designated use of the AR rifle. Because of this great care will go into the selection our optics for the BLACK RIFLE PROJECT (where we build the best two EDC (if we ever need them) AR's possible).

 

The most common and often best optic for such AR's would be the Aimpoint Micro T-1 with an AR riser mount. These run roughly $700, but boy are they beautiful.. 5 years of battery life, no need to ever turn it off, tough as nails, just place the dot over the threat and press the trigger.

But can we get say.. 90% of the function, quality, and reliability, from a lesser optic. After all, all options should be considered in making our dollars stretch to equip us in the best possible way. Perhaps. And this is what we’re going to learn.

There are several optics of the same style, size, and function. I think the best of these is the Bushnell TRS-25 High Rise Red Dot Riflescope and we ordered this sight and received it just a few days ago. Total cost was $85.01! So far I’m really impressed. But that doesn’t mean a thing until we mount it on a rifle and give it a try which we will be doing soon and reporting back to you with the results. See you then.
