      I have an older Colt ar. Looking for one of the 4x20  scopes that fit on the carry handle. Does anyone know who made them for Colt, and are they still available? Are any of the knock-off's any good? Thanks.

try..

 Google It     

and put together key words like "4x scope", "old colt AR15" etc. I did and received lots of hits.



I have an older Colt sp1 that I bought in the early 80's. Not sure if it's the same scope your talking about but I do remember some of the old 4x's and 3x's that were available at the time (I think Colt even made one). They were pretty cool for the times but I chose an old Aimpoint 1-4x instead. I eventually upgraded to an Aimpoint CompM2 (A.R.M.S. mount) and have used an ACOG 4x as well. For me, all these scopes work very well with the carry handle setup. They're fast and eye relief is good... well the ACOG's eye relief could be better.

I had one that was made By Colt in the 70s.  I agree on the aimpoint suggestion or if you can afford it a Trijicon compact acog which comes designed for the carry handle.

Good ones Wes!! The A.R.M.S. mount for the Aimpoint is the same one I have.

Here's the first ACOG I had that was also designed for the carry handle AR in .223.
