I've decided to rescope my AR with a lower powered scope (it has a 3-9x40 on it now) and have narrowed my choices to the scopes below (with a heavy lean for the Vortex). I've looked through both of them, but if I could put the Leupold reticle on the Vortex...it would be an easy decision.
Anyway...does anyone have any experience with either one? I'm a little nervous the Vortex reticle will be tough to pick up in bright conditions. The Leupold is about as high as I want to go price wise. If anyone has another suggestion...I'm all ears.
Looks interesting. I own 3 Elites and haven't had a single problem with them. If these are as good as the Elites they'll do well. One thing I noticed is they don't come with Rainguard...would be a big plus if they did.
This will be my first Vortex and I've heard nothing but good things about em, so I'm anxious to get a hold of it.
Got the Viper mounted up last night...this thing is nice. I'm digging the 1x where I can use both eyes. My only small complaint would be the size of the reticle...it could be a tad bigger, definitely not a deal-breaker though (the illumination makes up for the reticle size).
Time will tell but I think this is going to be a good setup.

Wondering if I might solicit some further debate on the best 1x-4x. In addition to the three scopes posted here I am also considering the following:
Burris MTAC or the TAC 30
Leupold MOD AR (Don't like the smaller size?)
Vortex Viper PST
Had a chance the other day to look through a Millet DMS and then a Trijicon Accupoint. Really bummed about the difference between the two in clarity and brightness but the Trijicon is two or three times the money. Hoping I can stay under $500 and I would like to stay with the larger tube like the Millet and the Trijicon have. Not sure if the Burris and Vortex models have the larger tube size or not, can't find one locally.
