Intro Song: “Issa Trap” by Mikey Geiger

    I own several of those Lancer neon green mags. Unless y’all JUST arranged those to be exclusively sold by y’all, then they aren’t exclusive to y’all.

  2. Gary johns on April 27, 2023 at 2:59 am

    YOUR TOP PICK is to fugly for me the MRO is the true WINNER !

  3. Gary Hutzler on April 27, 2023 at 2:59 am

    Clint have been watching your videos for quite some time. They have always been excellent for some reason. On this particular video someone forgot to put. Up on the screen the name and the model number of said Red Dot. Not sure if you were aware of that or not. Just wanted to give you some feedback. Because that’s one of the biggest reasons why I do watch your videos. Is you just about always put up brand and model numbers. Of rifles pistols sites Etc. Just some constructive feedback thanks so much

    I personally would not trust a AA battery to physically last 4-5 years. They will start to corrode sooner than 8 years. Thanks. SC Electronic Tech. US Navy vet.

  5. yan A on April 27, 2023 at 3:00 am

    Hi! Thx for the video👍
    Can you tell me what is the shotgun in hi position on the left of the wall please?
    It’s awesome

  6. Jeff Betts on April 27, 2023 at 3:00 am

    Tried-and-true iron sights.

  7. ironcode on April 27, 2023 at 3:02 am

    What, no Holosun? The HS515CM is the bomb!

  8. Gregory R on April 27, 2023 at 3:06 am

    I have the OG Aimpoint Micro T1 and I really really love it. Super accurate, zero parallax, haven’t ever had to change the battery (had it since 2013). Can easily hit 10" steel at 150yds.

  9. West Side Ranger on April 27, 2023 at 3:06 am

    I really like the MEPRO M21 and PrimaryArms MicroPrism!

  10. mzondi1970 on April 27, 2023 at 3:08 am

    Can you suggest a red dot with a circle retical for 150 or under it will be going on a new CC scorpion 3 plus

  11. jeff hudson on April 27, 2023 at 3:11 am

    no self powered optics mentioned?

  12. Chris Crane on April 27, 2023 at 3:15 am

    If eotech would just add a shake awake feature iit wou bee. The perfect sight.

  13. Minuteman941 on April 27, 2023 at 3:16 am

    I know every company can/will produce a lemon once in awhile, and that Eotech has a good reputation for a reason. That being said a few year’s ago when i was shopping around for a optic to go on my "main" rifle i settled on a eotech exps2 and it died the first range trip. It was on a 16" AR so no recoil to mention but something came loose inside the housing and i had 3 separate reticles showing up. The circle dot that it’s supposed to have plus a complete separate reticle on each side of that. I will probably one day give it another try but for now I’m going to stick with the MRO.

  14. Liam Hernández on April 27, 2023 at 3:16 am

    Leopold delta pro

  15. mike wilsher on April 27, 2023 at 3:17 am

    I have several EXPS3 and one EXPS2 my only complaint is battery life.

  16. Tyler Benson on April 27, 2023 at 3:17 am

    Does a combat optic list. Picks optics that haven’t seen widespread combat.

  17. The Patriot Paradox on April 27, 2023 at 3:18 am

    I’m hoping the SIG Romeo 5 XDR (circle dot with a AAA battery & MOTAC) WILL DO GREAT AND IT’S VERY DURABLE, Had the PA MD25 RDS 2 MOA and love the size durability but the glass was tinted and no shake features

  18. Mike K. on April 27, 2023 at 3:19 am

    EoTech and Aimpoint.
    Have one of each and I couldn’t pick one that’s better.
    Buy once, cry once.

  19. Kool D Rock on April 27, 2023 at 3:19 am

    I only like Holographic sites that I can detach in a second

  20. J H on April 27, 2023 at 3:20 am

    Going thru all these videos you guys have to help in my wifes rifle build and definitely as a reference or refresher for myself. Lots I didn’t learn as a medic and just told to point n aim as one could imagine. Thanks for all these great videos!

  21. Jacob Cox on April 27, 2023 at 3:20 am

    It depends on the purpose.

    For me, my Home Defense AR next to my bed is an Aimpoint CompM4S with an ARD. Iron Scalarworks PEAK 01

    For my Pistol and my wife’s, we use a Trijicon RMR Type 2 1MOA. Iron Heinie suppressor height Straight Eight MOS tritium night sights.

    My Truck Gun I changed canted sight this last week. So, it has an EOTech VUDU 1-8X24MM but my offset sight was a Trijicon RMR RM06 3.25 MOA, but I changed it up some and added an EOTech EFLX.

    My SPR has an LPVO in the EOTech VUDU 1-10x28mm with an offset Trijicon RMR RM06 3.25 MOA.

    My Urban Rifle has an Aimpoint PRO and my Backups are Scalarworks PEAK 02 irons.

  22. Robert McCutcheon on April 27, 2023 at 3:21 am

    one time a guy in my cousins unit had his rifle fall while they were doing a training jump. the aimpoint on that rifle broke on that one apparently they had to spend the whole day serching the woods for the rifle everyone was supper pissed lol

  23. MF UNDERTOW on April 27, 2023 at 3:22 am

    Why is he always clearing his sinuses like he’s got a fat loogie stuck back there. Eat a Halls before recording or something.

  24. Dans gear reviews on April 27, 2023 at 3:22 am

    I get the benefits of the holographic sights. But i would love to see an eotech red dot with aimpoint type battery life

  25. KaH0tika on April 27, 2023 at 3:22 am

    Great vid!
    And for what I think is worth…well DDM4 or MK18 that you have right there…combined with acogs or aimoint t2 + G33. These are a no brainers from my (possibly) biased DDMK18 owner’s opinion.

  26. Fook-Jo By-Den on April 27, 2023 at 3:28 am

    Comp M5S IF the Brightness Adjustments, we’re like T2 n not so coarse that it’s either not vis-à-blue OR Blown OUT/Star Burst with nothing in middle illumination wise.

  27. Exile Man on April 27, 2023 at 3:28 am

    M21 meprolight

  28. Ricki WOW! on April 27, 2023 at 3:30 am

    How about a budget friendly Red Dot video

  29. Mike64 on April 27, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Sig Romeo 8 is working very nice for me.

  30. A Xiong on April 27, 2023 at 3:34 am

    When you go over each red dot you should put up on the screen how each reticle looks like for us noobs. That would be helpful. Thanks.

  31. nobody on April 27, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Just flip the qrp mount around so the knob is on the right side

  32. Steven Jackson on April 27, 2023 at 3:35 am

    I have built a copy of my service rifle, and the comp m4s is on there for a darn good reason

  33. illestdomer2005 on April 27, 2023 at 3:37 am

    Unless you truly have a duty rifle, you probably don’t need more than a Romeo 5. I get it – nothing special and no tacticool, but it works.

  34. Shawn's Trains on April 27, 2023 at 3:37 am

    Trijicon MRO Patrol. I have 2 of them, love em. Miss my ACOG.

  35. POLEXICAN on April 27, 2023 at 3:39 am

    Best ever are the Fairfield and the CrisonTrace!!

  36. Frank Bianco on April 27, 2023 at 3:40 am

    Looking for recommendation for a 300 blkout red dot optic. Short range only needed. Preferably less than $350. Any ideas?

  37. Nick T on April 27, 2023 at 3:43 am

    Little batteries last longer than I would figure

  38. M118LR on April 27, 2023 at 3:43 am

    Man. CERTAINLY ‘somebody’ has ALREADY said this Clint: Geeeeeez. The Eotech, ANY of them…AREN’T RDS’! People CRY..literally cry and WHINE because of the “lack of” battery life. It’s a holographic sight, NOT A RED dot! Research! You’ll see WHY they don’t have 10’s of thousands of hours!

  39. FckJoeBdn on April 27, 2023 at 3:44 am

    Why did you say the Acog isn’t magnified? It’s a fixed 4x power scope, I have a couple, you also said it isn’t a scope? Is it a red dot lol?

  40. G Bar on April 27, 2023 at 3:44 am

    I wouldn’t choose the trijicon rmr for combat red dot on a ar pistol or rifle setup being that the laser is expose and can get dust and dirt, it’s good for pistol not on a rifle and I rather choose an enclosed red dots.

  41. Lon Stevens on April 27, 2023 at 3:46 am

    This is about optics. Why don’t you show the brands and their number identification on the screen so guys like me can take a screenshot versus telling me what kind of weapon you’re holding

  42. Kevin Keeton on April 27, 2023 at 3:46 am

    I’d like to hear experiences with non magnified red dot, holographic, and prisms from shooters that have astigmatism since I sold a Romeo and Juliet combo because the reticule was blurry for me

  43. James Smith on April 27, 2023 at 3:46 am

    Stiener red dots

  44. Little Joe on April 27, 2023 at 3:48 am

    You snore when you sleep 100%. Like… loud. Keeps snorting lol

  45. angel ilarraza on April 27, 2023 at 3:51 am

    I find it hard to justify spending over 300 for a red dot. They aren’t rocket science and basically an O2 iron site. People paying 900+ are not too smart in my book.

  46. brody porter on April 27, 2023 at 3:51 am

    the best red dot for a HK MP5 ?

  47. tacbear on April 27, 2023 at 3:53 am

    Sorry most of us can’t afford a $500.00+ optic especially if you own multiple rifles. If I had to go into combat tomorrow my Romeo 5XDR/Holosun 3x Magnifier would work just fine!!

  48. Michael Hoskins on April 27, 2023 at 3:53 am

    Sig Romeo 4T. Definitely not t2 level clarity, but 100,000hr battery life. And combat proven in Nairobi. I run mine on an arisaka offset with the circle dot setting.

  49. cainpaul08 on April 27, 2023 at 3:53 am

    Why no Sig?

  50. Bread M on April 27, 2023 at 3:56 am

    I will always be a sig romeo 7 fan it’s night vision capabilities aren’t the best but it works amazing and it’s cheap. If you can afford it the comp M4 is good😒
