Guys,
I have been struggling to find an optic for my LMT MWS. In the brief period i have had it, I have used
Nightforce 2.5-10X32 ( cant see reticle at 2.5)
Leupold VX_III 3.5-10 LR (ok choice)
IOR Spartan 2-12X36mm (ok, BDC only, heaviest, does Not work with larue mt due to eye relief)

I also have a burris fastfire in a 1 oclock mount I can use

I would like at least 10X on the high end, in keeping with the handling of the rifle would like something that also works at CQB type ranges.

Right now I am thinking  about just using the leupold in a Larue mt,  so i could QD it. and have back up irons and
Anyway,, how is that SWARO 1.7-10.  I know its a hunting scope, but would it be  a better choice than the one I have tried?
feel free to help me work it out. I know its hard to get everything!

thanks Billy,
You got the idea, but as you prob can guess I dont have the green for the  short dot or leupold. i could live with 6x to 9X max.

The SS really is a great match for that application, IMHO. The "glass" will compare with the USO(the ones I have looked through). The EREK knob is probably the best ever designed, and of course if all else fails, you can use the USO to pound tent stakes...But at $1600 more than the SS, I would choose the SS and buy LOTS of ammo!

You got me!
I got a SS 3-9 and I am very pleased with it
Now I have to sell my 4.5-14 vx3 lr and get the 5-20! so i can just think in mrads!!!!
thanks

You know I had that IOR that was 2-12 power, but who the f&*( cares what the range is when its tunnelling from 3.5 down
