Anyone use them? Any recommendations? Would rather stay under $100 for the set but will spend more if necessary. Thanks in advance.

Depending on how far back your scope is mounted you may be ablel to cowitness with them. I typically run my stock all the way in or pulled back to the first notch, which would allow the scope to be a mounted little bit farther forward, and allow the use of flip up sights. Of course you would have to run the scope on 1.25 power. I've never been a fan of side mounted oprics or iron sights.

Thanks BigPig. I will try that option first. Really didn't think that I would be able to cowitness through a 1.25 magnification. I would rather have the sights on top if that can be achieved.

For $100, you could pick up a 45 degree offset rail and mount an inexpensive red dot on it. that would give you the quick transition you're looking for, and be a lot easier to shoot with than iron sights.

I'm not sure what kind of off set sights we are talking about or for what kind of rifle (Winchester 30-30, or an AR, etc?) If it's for an AR, the 45 degree mounts with the red dot sights are awesome. They are very easy to use and set up.

You could do something like this from Primary Arms for around $100 bucks.
Primary Arms Reflex Sight

Or you could always get a 45 degree mount like Chad suggested and run a reflex sight off the rail. Daniel Defense makes one, then there are a lot of the cheap Chinese ones as well.

I have been wanting a T-1 to run offset or off the primary optic on the AR-10, Primary Arms may be a nice stop gap.

PA also just came out with a micro dot that has digital on and off and up to 50k+ hours always on like the T1 of course I wouldn't compare the two in quality, but PA has the best bang for the buck for budget optics. also you can buy PA from joeboboutfitters now and save taxes if that matters to you.

I just got one of the micro dots with the 50k+ hours battery life to replace a 1-4x I took off and put on my LR308 for hunting. Haven't got to sight it in yet, but I like it. Even night vision compatible if you need that.

I had them on an AR15 for about 1 month. First time I took that gun hunting, they were gone. To much stuff hanging on the gun, to much stuff hanging up on trees.

If I can find my old set I will give them to you...

Yea I get my backup iron sights that flip down caught on all kinda of crap I couldn't imagine walking through some if the stuff I do with offset sights or optic. Just too much crap on it. I like my hunting guns to be bare and light as possible.
