Picked up a M&P 15 22 in a trade deal and looking for optics. Red dot is an obvious choice, but one of the purposes is a training weapon for my AR, which wears a SWFA 1-6x scope. Ranges will be typically inside of 25 yards with the need to make precision shots at 100 yards.

Looking for a 1-4X/1-6X scope that has illumination and mildot/BDC type reticle. Capped turrets is fine since after I get it sighted in at 50 yards, I'll use the reticle for any holdover. Prefer to stay at the 1X low end (maybe 1.5x)

I'll eventually get another SS 1-6X scope for consistency, but not in the position to do so now.

Like to stay below $300 and ones I am considering include the following:

- Leatherwood CMR

- Weaver Kaspa tactical 1.5-6x

- Optisan 1-4x Mamba

- Bushnell 1-4X

- Burris Fullfield TAC

- Leupold 1.5-4x Mark AR w/firedot

I can repurpose this scope to another rifle once I get the SWFA 1-6X, so not worried about losing this investment.

Any opinions on the candidates above? Any to add?
