5 years ago it was simple-- go with Eotech, Aimpoint Pro, or Aimpoint micro T1/H1.

These days there's so many great RDS's out there.

I personally went with a Trijicon MRO Green Dot for my latest rifle. The Green Dot has less battery life than the MRO red dot but I love the way it looks through the optic.

But the Trijicon MRO is $350 price point and that is what I have decided to go with at the $350-$450 price point for all my rifles/carbines now. I really like them.

But there are so many options out there now between $125-$175 that seem to be great.

For instance, last week I found a BNIB Sig Romeo5 red dot for $100 on eBay. So far I love it-- especially for the price. Usually can find them for around $125. Very crisp red dot, came with 2 mounts- a low mount and a co witness mount, and very well made. Battery will last forever too because of the motion activation system they use.

But then there's RDS's like Holosun and Primary Arms RDS-- I've never tried either but the Primary Arms Advanced micro RDS or whatever it's called is under $200 and seems like a really great option.

As mentioned, personally, for my rifles/carbines I want to stake my life on, I have been going with the Trijicon MRO lately, but a lot of really great options-- as far as price vs quality, I think Primary Arms Advanced micro RDS seems to be great bang for the buck-- can get them off their website with mount.
Good luck!!

300 blackout 7.5" barrel

I'm using a vortex strikefire and I like it, wouldn't say I LOVE it. It holds zero strong. It was around $275 as I recall. My pistol AR was designed around the ideal CQB AR platform. I can consistently ring 20" steel plates @ 100 yards with it but it was designed more for home defense, it sounds like 7.5" your going for close range defense as well.

I'm really interested in this thread because I have a 9mm pistol AR type and I'm considering going holosight for a much larger field of view.
