Hey guys I am still new to getting scopes and mounts and what not for my AR15. I want to be able to use it for just about anything and possibly hunt with it come next year. I am currently looking at the Vortex PST Viper or the Burris MTAC (bundle package with Reddot) every review is about the same and I have not read anything terrible bad with them. The price range I am looking at would honestly prefer to be under $550.

Of course right before I posted here I also found http://swfa.com/Barska-1-4x28-SWAT-AR-Rifle-Scope-P62734.aspx but cannot find many reviews. I know its probably going all personal but I was just wondering if some people could help a new gun owner out. Appreciate it


Dave

Do not get a Barska.  They are junk  Check out the SWFA SS 1-4x models, they have two of them.

Barska is garbage.

In the sub-$550 price range the three best 1-4x scopes are:




Burris MTAC is pretty respectable, but these three are a bit better.

If you can wait for the backorder to get fulfilled, I would go with the new SS 1-4x24.  I just got mine and it is much better for me than the Viper PST, which is a great optic, but I like the ranging reticle on the SS MUCH BETTER.
I agree with Ilya.
