I've got an AR15 chambered in 5.56 NATO. And was wondering if I should put a scope or red dot on it.
All depends on what you want to achieve. In my many years of being around rifles of all kinds I've seen scopes, red dot sights, EO-Tech's, ACOG's. On my Daniel Defense MK18 SBR/Short Barrel Rifle 10.3 I have a Aimpoint T-2 red dot sight and works really well.

I have a couple of these and love them.


They are smaller than most red dot sights and very rugged. If you don't need magnification like on a close range personal defense weapon it gets you on target very fast. If you need magnification there are dozens of great scopes tailored for the AR. For the price, this one is not bad, although I prefer a higher quality scope from Burris or Vortex.

I had an EO Tech mounted on mine for a while. I swapped it out for a traditional rifle scope and I don't think I go back to a non-magnified optic. I have it mounted on a quick release riser with MBUS backup folding sights. It's nice not to have to worry about batteries. Just my 2 cents.
