  • Need Input on tacticle scope choice

    I've tried 3 inexpensive sighting systems for my tactical carbine and been disapointed twice having to return the products. I am looking for personal recomendations for compact, low power, large front objective (40mm), moderatly priced optics. If you own such a scope and have been pleased with it's performance please let me know the make and model. Thanks!

        Anything from Trijicon. The Acog 4x with a RMR mounted to the top is the ultimate. You get magnification and a reflex site at the same time. No batteries required.

          It all depends on what you call moderatly priced. I would agree with avking on the the choice of Trijicon because they make a lot of scopes that do not need batteries. I have the Trijicon Reflex 42 and I love it, amber dot and no need for batteries (http://www.trijicon.com/user/parts/p...m?categoryID=8 ( $529 ). I also have a bushnell model 730132P with green or red military Tdot http://www.bushnell.com/products/sco...rophy/730132P/ and this works great for the money ($159). I have mounted both of these on a couple different guns ( 223, 308, 12 ga., 300 win mag ) and they have held up with no problems.

            My budget leans more towards the Bushnell at this time, glad that the Bushnell holds-up.

              I have 2 tasco propoints and find they work great for short money.
              one on the ar mounted on the upper reciever that's the 30mm

              and one on the M1A standard scout mount with 42mm propoint plus
              which I think is AWSOME it has four adjustible dot sizes and is crystal clear
              $30 used I feel like I jsut got the deal of the century.

              I lean on the dots over the hairs as i feel it gives me quicker target aquizition
              I did set up a friends ar with a bsa 1.5-5 or 4 can't remember has the illuminated ret
              $125 on swfa and he's been knockin the crap out of the plates at 70yds and seems to
              hold zero well. the low power millet for around $250 seems to have good reviews also

              I wouldn't want much magnification on my go to rifle since it's most likely
              going to be used under 100 yds.

              one thing to consider is how accurate is your ar? my buddy was unhappy with his dot and
              stuck a hudge 4-12 on it and it was still crap turned out the surplus fmj junk and the wally
              hp's didn't shoot any group ( I think an ar should shoot under 1moa) so I set him up
              with some of my 55 gr sp's and everything started to come together, a big +1 for quality
              reloads, (dillon 650)

              sorry this has nothing with tactical 40 mm's but what tactical are you talking sniper?
              the big scope looks like shit on the ar caribines the low power scopes on the highest
              power will knock em out to 300 +

              What is your tactical ammo going to be? That has allot to do with whatever optics you
              choose pie plate surplus at 100 is never going to cut it.
