Things To Keep in Mind Before Buying

It’s not that hard. Just keep a couple of things in mind while buying and you should be fine.

Build Quality

Durability will play a big role in how long your sight lasts at your disposal. If your sight is made out of cheap and vulnerable material, then it won’t be a good option for Galil Ace.


Red dot sights often can be fragile items and suffer from severe QC issues. It’s always a good idea to take the sight from a reputable brand that provides a good warranty service. This way, you don’t need to worry about your sight for a long time.

Lens Quality

Unlike riflescopes, sights tend to feature a less complicated lens system. That’s why, it’s easy to make a great quality lens on a red dot sight. Plastic lenses will have bad vision clarity and they can get scratched easily. Stick to glass lenses.


The Galil Ace series of rifles is awesome and we don’t need to repeat that. If you own one of these beauties, you absolutely should grab a sight that we mentioned on the list. All of them are good in their regards.

Hopefully, this review was helpful, and decided to choose an optic for Galil Ace was solved. Depending on how much you are willing to spend, grab one of the sights from the list and have a great time.
