Check out some of the Vortex stuff, the Strikefire (Aimpoint fullsize clone) and the SPARC (Aimpoint Micro clone). Both are still very capable optics with a great warranty from Vortex. Both have had great reviews for mid-range stuff. If you're interested in something a little less than that, than I would look at the Bushnell Trophy red-dot series, Opticsplanet has the 1x25 (like an aimpoint micro) for 91 bucks, and a 1x28 (standard tube red-dot) for 95 bucks, or the 1x32 (looks like an ACOG) for 150-ish. These are much better than the junker Tasco 30mm and 42mm red-dot sights.

Are you talking about needing a small amount of magnification to see at distances?

Does anyone run the eotech EXPS3-0 on their USC/UMP? Does it co-witness with stock sight? I want an eotech with a QD mount like the EXPS3.

It's the same height as a regular EOTech (an absolute co-witness with an AR15) so it'll be way to high to co-witness at all. However if you get a GG&G QR lever for it, it won't matter since you can take it off quick anyways. An XPS3 would probably be what I'd get if I liked EOTech's, they are nice and compact and have a big open window, although you won't have much cheek wield.

Even the Mini-red-dot's like the RMR/Doctor/Jpoint/burris ones sit too high for co-witness, although companies make QR mounts for them now so it's less of an issue, the only sights I know of that will mount low enough to co-witness are the Aimpoint Micro (and clones like the SPARC - Bushnell 1x25MRD, SIG etc...) and the Zeiss Z-Point. I don't know if you can even get a fullsize aimpoint ring low enough to mount the fullsize Aimpoints low enough to co-witness.
