I need some help chosing a good dot reticle (around 6 moa) holographic, preferably tubular (around 30mm) optic to put on my AK. I really like the Aimpoint and Trijicon Reflex, but I just cant bring myself to spend the same amount of money on a sight as I did on my rifle. Maybe if I were rich, but thats not the case. I need suggestions for a good sight that will hold its zero and wont get bumped off, one that is rugged enough that it doesnt need to be treated like fine china. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Also, I was going to get the gas tube rail mount on the site below:

If anyone has any info about this type mount let me know what you think. Thanks in advance for your help.

However, I have heard good things about the BSA red dot scopes. Most people I know use them for hunting guns, especially turkey guns, and if you don't plan to take Iwo Jima, then it should serve you well. BSA is one of those companies that have good products for people who don't need the ruggedness of military gear.

Well, after a lot of thought and research, I've decided to go with the Burris XTS-135 red dot sight. I also ordered a lot more stuff to soup up my AK. I'll have a pic up as soon as I get it all put together.
