    Is there any somewhat affordable red dots on the market that will do co-witness. Don’t really want to spend more than $200 each. Needing to buy two for my two matching AR’s. Was looking at the primary arms micro red dot and Vortex Crossfire micro red dot models. Any input would be helpful.

    You can find the Sig Romeo 5's for 150 and less most of the time. I have one on my Ruger and it co-witnesses with an A2 front sight post and a Magpul flip up rear.

    Vortex crossfire, vortex strike fire (my personal preference), and sig romeo 5 are all great options in your price point. Double your price point and go with the aimpoint PRO.

    I think I’m going to look into the Sig Romeo 5’s or the Vortex I’ll be using a Magpul rear sight.

    Looks like Palmetto has the Sig Romeo 5 for $149. The Vortex id still have to get the base to bring it up to co-witness.

    Buy once, cry once! Aimpoint CompM4 and Aimpoint flip to side Magnifiyer. Otherwise the little Holosun’s are tough, tough!

    I use Vortex SPARC, have two of them. I believe I payed under $200 each. My hunting buddy loves the Sig Romeo it's currently $139 on Amazon.
