Default Red dot scope

Looking for a budget red dot scope for my sig 522. My daughter liked plinking with it before, but after using another gun with a red dot scope she really wantsit to have one. Don't want trash but don't want to go broke. or if anyone has one they aren't using anymore, and would let go hit me up.

Do you think that going wth a less expensive one would be a waste of money? thanks for the recommendation. And the discount code.

YW.. Well this one is 2 MOA and seems to have good reviews at a lower price point: 29.99

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0794Z2HL9?tag=gddeals19-20

20% OFF Coupon Code: DHCROKEQ (not sure if still active..)

I don't think a less expensive optic would be a waste of money - depends on your application.. What you will get is lower quality parts and less QC. Maybe more likely to get a defect or more prone to failure over the lifetime. Or it could be just fine and you would never even notice a difference..

Bushnell TRS25 can be had for about $50 and will meet your needs if that $30 one fails you.
