Looking for a high quality yet budget friendly optic? The Lucid HD7 red dot fits the bill, they retail for $249 but the price has dropped to $160 with free shipping on Amazon. It features a parallax free lower 1/3 co-witness, 4 selectible reticles and is 100% waterproof and fogproof and has been shockproof tested up to 458 SOCOM.
I actually bought one at the new lower price to evaluate for a future review, stay tuned. Check them out online at Amazon.com.
