    Asking for a friend off reddit here. She’s looking to get into a red dot and was suggested a crimson trace something or other. The only red dots I’ve had have been sig, vortex and holosun. Personally I’ve never heard of CT and knowing that she’s working with a tight budget figured I’d ask if they’re up to snuff or if she should save for something better?

    They are meme tier. I coach youth shooters and our 15-22s use CT. If you leave them on for a week they die.

    I mostly use Aimpoint but I do have a Sig Romeo 5. I’m reluctant to say “just as good” but the dot is crisp AF and the dots been on since 2019 and still going strong.

    Bottom line: if on a budget nothing below Holsun or Sig Romeo 5.

    Sig Romeo 5 or holosun 403b. Shake awake function. Crimson Trace is the same as Truglo / Pinty grade shit they shove onto newbies at the gun store or they sell at crappy sporting goods stores.

    They’re fine. I would say a Sig Romeo 5 or a Sig MSR would be my bargain choices.
