    I searched for a bit but I didn't find any threads on this so I made my own, I'm looking for a sight for my jg m16a2. I play in The woods and I'd like to have a some kind of clearer sight for my rifle. I browsed the web for some kind of scope, but there are just too many to choose from. My price point is 50 or lower. Im not looking for a red dot, i dont like the way it looks. (im not a codsofter!!! Im a mgs-softer!)
    Also can a scope be shattered by a bb?
    Thanks guys.

    Yes, a scope can be broken. On top of your carry handle, is there a small hole with threads, like one for a screw?

    There is a hole, but no threads. I guess this is where the carry handle mount belongs.

    Its basically a red dot, I had the same one. No zoom, just a green and red dot, and the green seemed to never work correctly for me. What kind of optic are you thinking about? Like a scope that magnifies and has crosshairs? Or something smaller for quick aiming?

    Something with a slight magnification, either crosshairs or a red dot

    If I were to get a red dot, would an aimpoint, ncstar, or utg do the trick?

    Aimpoint uses a 2MOA red dot non-magnified sight. Ncstar uses Illuminated magnified Sights.

    I've never used it, but based on reveiws from it people use it on RS rifles. Which means the rail attachment might be to small for your rails unless you buy a longer screw. That, and you're going to need a mount kit to fit onto your crrying handle.

    I would go with the NC Star. They make relatively good optics, and that $30 price is good.
