    those are not worth it. they normally have crappy adjusters that fail or doesn't work at all. they also don't have a clear dot or ghosted image. eotech clones start out at around $50 and they differ in quality. cheaper ones also have problems with crappy adjusters and/or ghosted image.

    when it comes to optics, cheap and good really doesn't exist. you get cheap but works or pay a bit more and get decent quality or buy more expensive clones to get your money's worth. i'm a bit spoiled with optics because of my poor eyesight. i rely on my optics alot for outdoors. for indoors, i can get by using my gun mounted flash light when i don't have time to use my red dot.

    browse this sight for whatever tickles your fancy:

    This works pretty well, pretty bright (usable in sunshine) and easy to look through. Im not sure about current quality but it was the first optic I got in airsoft and lasted me for a while. Not the sexiest looking site but it gets the job done.

    I had a holo sight... Which is great for outdoors, since the lens was tented you could see your dot very well. But most replica EOtechs are tinted, so when I went into a dark building no sight was better than the holo. I was fine with a Walmart $30 one... Until you want to move up to something that has more prestige.

    To get a good sight you have to spend around 40+ dollars if i were you i would just buy a real reflex gun sight there well worth the extra $15.

    First off your not going to get a holo sight for any less than I don't know ~250.00 and thats used.

    You can get a replica Eotech for around 50.00 but it's still not a holo.
    Basically anything you get will be a red dot, Just get whatever style you like best.

    I recommend saving abit more and grabbing an eotech replica, element in particular. Metal hood, very good adjustables and paralex&ghost free!

    Sights tend to go with the 'buy nice or buy twice' motto,couple stray bbs can really ef em up!

    G&P holosight with a laser built in for $135. Brand new. Still out of the OP's price range but you can easily get a new holosight for less than $250
