Priest,
It's been less than a year. The thread is still kickin' and apropos to many.
:lol:
:cool:
I stand by my sentiment. :lol:

Personally, I have the Burris 1x6: https://www.burrisoptics.com/scopes/rt- ... e-1-6x24mm and like it a lot.

The Trijicon is very tempting though, but I would get the Open horseshoe .308 ballistic reticle. This one: https://www.trijicon.com/na_en/products ... -C-1600005
That’s a great scope. It’s also about double what I am will or can afford to pay for a scope. But, I have considered this one for my SCAR 17. It’s a 4x32 ACOG with a .308 reticle: https://www.trijicon.com/na_en/products ... ?pid=TA01B

I used to have the AR-536, which is the 5x version of that optic, otherwise same/same. It was a pretty decent optic for what it was, and at that price point. But in the end, I gritted my teeth, clenched my butt, and sprung for a 4x32 Trijicon ACOG. I’ve never regretted it. My motivation was twofold: the first being that the ACOG is just plain rugged and combat proven....they’re built like a tank; and the second being that I didn’t want to be dependent on a battery for the illumination of the reticle. The ACOG has both a tritium element and a fiberoptic element. In fact, in bright sunlight, the reticle almost too bright. I learned from a marine friend to put a piece of electrical tape over the fiberoptic element, and then I can vary the light exposure reaching the reticle by changing the position of the tape.

But, the buy in is steep, and so people are not often willing to spend that kind of money on a scope for their first AR.

Re: AR Scope Suggestions

I'd second the Vortex 1-8x StrikeEagle as the minimum for the quality of that trigger. But I wouldn't bother spending more unless you're interested in shooting at really extended ranges.....like past 600 yards, which your carbine isn't really suited for anyway. The StrikeEagle's reticle subtends to 600 yards, so that's about perfect.
