Default Looking for suggestions on a budget 3x optic

Specifically for an AR. Something in the sub $300 range. Currently i have a vortex spitfire 1x on my AR but i think i'll throw that on my GF's new gun i'm building until she outgrows it and get me something with a little more range.

Primary Arms ACSS.

Easy to sight in at 100 as the dot fits in a 2" square at that range.

x3! I've personally put this optic through hell and back. It's an unbelievably great deal, especially at the price their asking.

Primary Arms Acss is awesome. It's not an acog but you can buy 4 of them for the price. Any reason for the fixed power optic though? There are alot of great p.a. variable power optics in that price range?

Do the 3x optics hold zero after you remove the mount for cleaning?

3x under $300? $175 Weaver 1-3x20 or $270 Nikon 1-4x20. There are others, but those two are very good for the money.
