Sightmark Sights

Has anyone had any experience with Sightmark reflex or red dot sights? I am looking for an economical option to swap out the traditional scope on my AR. Can't afford an EOTech or ACOG and I've seen some Sightmark reflex sights in the < $100 range.

C-More

They're $300 or so but also include back up iron sites. My experience with the less expensive red dots is they normally don't last that long. Have seen a lot of guys bring them to the range and after a couple of uses and carrying around they break, won't hold a zero or just simply don't work.
I've had my C-More tactical since 03, took it to Iraq twice and use it at work, still holding up.

Yeah I figured the sub $100 sights would probably not be worth it, I mean you get what you pay for. But I thought I would check because I don't have the cash to spend more than $100 right now.

then BSA makes decent red dot sights that aren't very expensive. My AR serves to help me stay proficient with my issue weapon and is my primary home defense/road defense/gay mexican communist muslim zombie apocalypse rifle, so I only put things on it I have used downrange and can trust. Hell, that's why I took the EO Tech off and put the Aimpoint on.
