What is your budget?  What are you going to use the gun for?

I recently purchased this years leupold mark ar. While not Holographic they are much improved over last years mark ar - light weight, forgiving, very affordable and great CS.

My Budget will range from $650-$900 Depending on the Optics Itself. And I have HEard great things about leupold, and have took it into serious consideration, My uncle has told me good things about their Handles, and said he hasnt had the chance to Purchase and actual scope from leupold. And also Trijicon seems to be a little steep (Reguarding my Budget) but i have found great deals considering how muuch they are. but as far as my usage goes, im mainly a Hunter, but i like "Flexing" my muscles with my AR at the Range.

Yeah, Thats great insight, ive noticed that alot of the Eotechs that run through toy our irons are almost considered "Cheating". Considering i hit a 1x1 piece of Plywood from 175 yard out with Ease with my uncles Ar With Eotech Holographic.

1ftx1ft?  if so thats easily done with irons.... nothing spectacular here.
 
I think you need a low power variable scope with true 1x.  There are a couple options.  My first choice would be this scope.  It can be used on 1X as a true "red dot" very effectively.  Then on the range you can dial up to 4X and really put some pinpoint shooting out there.

Optional Accessories :




 
You can add a throwlever to do the adjustments quicker -
 
and put in a quality mount like this one -

or to stay under budget get this mount -
 
I think it will do more than you'll want out of it.  Again it can be a true 1x red dot just like an eotech or a 4x precision scope for tight grouping work.
