Hey,

I've read a lot of post before, but never have posted anything. I was looking for an optic to put on my AR-15 platform. The main purpose of this optic is for accurate engagements from 200-400 yards.

The second role for the optic is to spot for my wife out to 1000yrds. My wife and I do a lot of precision shooting in the deserts. We pack light so I would like to use my rifle to spot rather than a spotting scope. We mainly shoot at steel, so I don't need to go overboard on magnification.

Main features needed are.
Mil/Mil
FFP
Illuminated reticle
Mil-dot
Somewhat light weight
And preferably under $750

Any help would be much appreciated.

No Scope that I can think of will do what you need.

Possibly Look at Vortex PST but I cannot say it is exactly what you want.

It seems to meet your needs but it is a little lacking in optical clarity and brightness at higher magnification.


The Vortex Viper® PST™ (Precision Shooting Tactical) is designed and built to deliver consistently repeatable accuracy – regardless of range. Available in six models with a choice of reticles in either the first or second focal plane, Vortex Viper PSTs are built on one-piece 30mm tubes machined from aircraft-grade 6061–T6 aluminum for optimum strength and rigidity – and ample room for extreme range elevation adjustment. With XD extra-low dispersion glass objectives offering superior resolution and color along with the durability to withstand the harshest conditions, it is no mystery why the Vortex Viper PST became an instant hit.

Features:

  • XD extra-low dispersion glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images.
  • XR fully multi-coated lenses increase light transmission for maximum brightness.
  • ArmorTek® protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
  • Argon gas purging guarantees superior fogproof and waterproof performance.
  • Shockproof construction withstands recoil and impact.
  • 4x zoom range.
  • Solid one-piece tube constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy.
  • Hard-anodized black matte finish.
  • Choice of matching mrad or MOA turrets / reticles.
  • Illuminated glass-etched ranging reticle.
  • Choice of first or second focal plane in most configurations/models.
  • CRS (Customizable Rotational Stop) system prevents turret from traveling more than one revolution below sight-in zero.
  • MAG-View fiber optic magnification indicator.

The SS #-9 kind of fits that bill pretty well...

Thanks for the quick response. I'm torn between the swfa 3-9 (lacking illumination) and the leupold VX-R Patrol 3-9 (lacking FFP). Thanks again.

Thanks for the great reviews. I guess I can't really loose either way.
