I found I can get Vortex glass at a decent price, will be putting either a 1-6x34 or a 2-8x28 Strikefire II on the AK.

That's going to be a seriously tender jug once you get it on the grill!

That’s not what my glasses look like at all.

True, that. :-)

I meant to write that sights are over rated. :oops:

kinda off topic alert
I had a Zastava 9mm Tokarev clone, the front sight fell off, so I removed the rear sight. go to the range, pull the gun up and blast. see where the bullets are going, adjust. with some practice I could get a magazine inside the 8 ring at 7yds. I found I've never been that fast. no sights to slow me down, point and blast.
if you have a gun your changing sights on, try the gun with no sights.
(I told this story to a skeet shooter and he asked me, "what are sights?" boom, boom, ching.)

Strikefire or Crossfire?

I bought a Vortex Crossfire II 6-25X50 AO scope with a Dead Hold BDC reticle to mount on my cheap Precision Rifle Build and I'm stunned. For $250 it's bright, crisp, clear and it tracks like a $900+ scope. I'm literally shooting sub MOA right out of the chute at 100 yards and I'm pretty sure I can do it out to 600 yards tomorrow. Put a Vortex Strikefire II red dot on my AR and loved it so much I went back after a Vortex VMX-3T which is a 3X magnifier for the red dot.

Holy Crap - there are some awesome and inexpensive scopes out there now for dirt cheap. I still have iron sights on the AR but they are pop ups and stay snapped down until the optics fail. But now is a good time to be an Optics Whore. Lots of cool stuff out there for cheap.

I'm a huge proponent of Point Shooting pistols at combat distances....don't get me started. Most of my students and friends shoot way better when you take the sights off the gun and tell them to point their finger and pull the trigger. My little Colt 1903 .32's are deadly at 21' fired single handed/point shooting. Even doubters and Newbies can obliterate a torso target at 15 - 21 feet with no sights at all.

Sights on handguns are a waste of space.

Point shooting at 100 yards gets boring fast.

When I'm lucky enuf to help a noobie pick out a pistol, I first let them get used to fondling it (empty) and pushing/pulling things till they get the idea.

Then it is off to the desert to chase a pop can around from around 10-15 feet by just drawing & trying to instinctively hit the can without sighting.

Takes a while, but eventually they get the hold and hit relationship down, so we move to more distant sighted targets. Plus, they get a lot of practice loading mags/cylinders.
