Just received this holographic site from eBay - $39.
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tactical-Ho ... 2749.l2649

Thus far, does everything it’s meant too...it now confuses me how some could be $1000...what can they do better...?
Only issue thus far is base is 20mm and Adler is 11mm so I’ve mounted it on an old baikal until my new base turns up. Works pretty well. I’m reasonably happy with it.
Tikka .260 (Z5 5x25/52)
Steyr Pro Varmint .223 - VX 3
CZ455 .22 & Norinco .22 (vtex 4-12, bush 3-9)
ATA 686 U/O 12g & Baikal S/S 12g.
Adler a110
Sauer 30-06 - VX 3
Howa 300 win mag. SHV 5-20/56
Marlin SBL 45/70 (tba)

I like these for low-profile adaptors.

Where did you get these BR? Mounts I have are totally useless as the red dot itself is just too high...I cannot align it anywhere near the bead. My cheek is 4 inches away from stock lol.
