Default Bought a cheap TruGlow Red Dot for my AMD-65

I had been using my EOTech 553 on my AMD-65 since it's really intended for my AR-15s, i found a cheap TruGlow Red Dot to give a try on the AMD-65.

sometimes you get lucky i have had a cheap bsa for my ak for 10 yrs and it does a fantastic job it even holds zero if i take it off and put it back on i am very happy with it paid 29bucks for it and would not sell it for twice that amount because i know chances of finding another that works that well are slim at best

Same here. I have a Tasco red dot on my Saiga SGL-20 and am amazed at how well it works. I know purists will cringe at the mere thought of putting a cheap scope on such a nice Kalashnikov, but it does the job as well as I need it to!

With the weather heading cooler and my eyes now fixed, i am hoping to get out to shoot it and see how it works.

I got to shoot my AMD-65 with the Trueglow optis, the optic held up well but my dustcover had problems staying in place.
I have to rethink the mounting of my optics, wish the AMD had a side rail like the AK have.

Hey, for an inexpensive red dot, I have had good luck with the TruGlo products. I also have a cheap (50$) Center Point, on a 9mm carbine, and it has done well too.

Default Got to the range today with my $25 dollar TrueGlow Red Dot Optic.

Had it mounted on a Arsenal 7.69x39 and happy to tell everyone it worked great dot was highly visible in bright sun light held it's zero and i got some great tight groups. So even it being the cheapest TrueGlow in their Optic line up,it's still is a really quality red Dot Optic.
