Chris,

I have an AR15A2 witha 20" barrel, an ARMS #2 carry handle mount and ARMS #21 30mm rings.  I would like to mount a Leupold 3-9x36 MR/T M3 with a illuminated recticle.  Unfortunately the cost of that scope is out of my reach.  What do you think of using the IOR Valdada 6x42 Tatical as a poor man's 3-9-x36 MR/T?  Would you recomend that or purchasing ARMS #37 1" ring inserts and using a Leupold 3-9x40 PR, a Weaver 3-9x40 Tactical or even a Burris 3-9x40 Fullfild II?  I am trying to put together a poor man's SPR or SAM.  I also looked at the 10x42 Super Sniper but am not sure about using that much magnification all of the time?  What do you think?  I appreciate any opinions you may have.  Thanks.

SS is too much for a SPR set up, the IOR 6x is in the middle but just wouldn't be right either...........Get the inserts and a 1" 3-9 for sure.  You know what would be sweet?

Burris LRS 3-9x40 Illuminated Ballistic Plex.....$299.95

 

You get the MR/T look with the illuminated module on the eye piece and the ballistic plex is just plain awesome on a .223.

IOR make exelent tactical scopes and you will be happy with any of them, look for 6x42, but dont forget the super M2 6x30 and 2.5-10x42 MP8.

Burris is good, but is not a tactical scope.....
