Well.....this old paratrooper is like a kid in a candy store...too many choices.

I am searching for feedback on optic owners and those that have tried optics around the following thoughts and intended use.......


Looking for an optic - single purpose on my Bushmaster ACR 5.56 with a 16" barrel

I want to be able to do precision fire at 250 + (NO RED DOT)

Where I live and where I shoot is routinely dark or in the shadows so a lighted ret option is a big plus for me.

I am going to mount a Fastfire 3 on a 45 degree mount for snap shooting inside 75 yards

"Thinking or Leaning" at a 1x4 so I can co witness but with the fastfire I could push the minimum up to a 2 or 3x

Price point - looking at oh...500 BEFORE mounts.


Thanx folks...just so many out there, would like some real feedback from owners and what you have tried.  Some of the models I will have to purchase blind as no one carries them so I cant give them a hands on looky look.

Burris Fast Fire 3 - 3MOA on a 45 degree rail forward on the barrel

Anyone have any significant trigger time with the Nikon 3x12?

You may want to try the Tactical scope forum and you will probably get better feedback!
