Default Anyone run optics on SGL 106?

I never cared much for optics on my AK rifles but as time goes by and my eyes grow older its getting harder to see my front sight and target. I am relegated at least for the time being to a public range so my max distance is 200 yards , i am thinking of getting ether a Primary Arms micro dot or 3X prism with 5.56 retical , does anyone have any feedback with these optics or have any optics there happy with?

Do you know if you have astigmatism or not?

I'm in the same boat as you. I picked up a primary arms 2.5x ACSS scope at the NRAAM last weekend for $125 ( Show Special ).

I put it on my latest build using a Kvar KV04S mount. The glass is remarkable clear and although I was quite skeptical of the ACSS reticle, I have to say that I am quite impressed with this scope. So impressed that I am going to buy a 3x ACSS with 7.62x39 reticle.

You won't be disappointed by the PA 3x prism ACSS.

Astigmatism is not a near sighted problem.

Far sighted persons suffer from it as well.

Before you buy a red dot be sure to either have your eyes checked or go to a gun store/friends place and look through one. If you dont see a crisp dot but a comma, star burst, bunch of grapes etc then you have astigmatism. It tends to get worse as you age and most people dont even realise they have it.

Apparently most people have it to some degree or another, its just a question of how bad it is. Mine is very very bad...my glasses correct it but I dont usually make a habit of actually wearing them so I dont bother with red dots.
Some people say that holographic sights like eotechs work better with astigmatism, but in my particular case that is not true, its even worse.
