View Full Version : Sight for my new STAR L85a2

I'm looking for a good sight to put on my L85. I've looked at the susat that is made for it but i really don't need to the 4x zoom and i need something closer to a reflex sight. The ACOG looks doable but i'm sort of interested in the holo reflex sights. here's a couple of options i'm considering. some of these look to be the same product but have huge differences in price.

Pick what you like. If you want to keep closer to reality of what is used, then pick an ACOG, as the Brits have bought those to use with the L85s, whereas I have not seen pictures or documentation of them using holo sights.
While not having owned one, reports from users of that HurricanE EOTech copy is that it is disappointing for the price.

I would actually suggest going for the STAR Susat, as that is what the Brits put on their L85's, however, I'm not sure on the price. But, I can guarantee, it's probably pricy.

The STAR SUSAT is rather unusable as the eye relief is not convenient. It is a fairly nice airsoft site, but a red dot sight would be more functional.

Again, the Brits have purchased mass quantities of ACOGs to replace the SUSAT for L85s.

Hmmm never seen an ACOG on a L85.

Huh, me neither. I'll take note of that. About time too, but for some reason, they still have L85's :p . Congrats on your purchase!

Not sure if that'll fit on an L85's carry-handle, so you might wanna see if anyone has one you can test first. Same zoom as the SUSAT, for about half the price.
