Same here with not knowing about them. I to have a 1x4x32 ACOG a great system, and ordering the ELCAN Dual Role 1-4x . Hope to get it before xmas. But still looking for something for lesser $$$ and the Pride Fowler is coming in around $325.
if you are looking to got cheap and want a red dot get a Primary Arms Aimpoint knock off. If you want to go cheap and want some magnification get a Burris DMS-1. You definatly get what you pay for but off the cheap options they are in my opinion the best deals on the market. I have used both and even taken the Burris through a rifle course. I will no longer buy them for me but I dont have to much of an issue recommending them for people that are going to use it only for a range gun and not a duty gun.
For $325 I think you would be able to find a used EOTech, Aim Point, or name brand scope of some kind. Burris does make some pretty good stuff and they too offer a wannabe Aim Point but I can't speak on the quality of them. I think I read that they are made in the Philippines but don't know that to be a fact. Good luck in your search.
