I had mis-posted this in the general rifle optic forum and have had limited success...

Gents (Ladies),I am new to this forum and confused as to what manufacturer (model) provides the best blend of attributes for my needs after reading  the "Optics Rating Scale" in depth.I am looking for an optic for primary
use on my DSA FAL Tactical (.308), with occasional use on my POF415 AR platform...I will likely mount via La Rue LT104. 

I currently use red-dots for daily use and want a scope that can both replace my primary 1x's (EOTech 553 and Aimpoint M3) as well as provide some "reach out & touch someone" at a moments notice.  I have tried the "3x"
modules and an not happy with their performance.

Here is what I am looking for:
  • Mid Range
    Tactical use (1 - 4/5/6x)
  • Illuminated Reticle (incl. good daylight performance)
  • Good point & shoot ability...1x with both eyes open
  • General Ruggedness
  • Lifetime Warranty (No BS Customer Service)

  • While
    cost is always an object, I'd rather pay $2k for a scope today and have it for 25 years, than pay $750 and either wish I had another one or have to replace in in 3 years.
Here is my current "shortlist" in order of
street price (not preference) that I have compiled thus far:
  1. S&B Short Dot 1.1 - 4
  2. Swarovski z6i 1 - 6 (Circle Dot)
  3. Kahles CSX 1.1 - 4
  4. US Optics SN4(s) 1 - 4
  5. NightForce NSX 1 - 4

  6. Leupold
    MR/T M2 1.5 - 5
  7. IOR 1.1 - 4
  8. Meopta 1 - 4
I am immersing myself in this as well as a few other forums and get a ton of conflicting information..I could really use some direct & well
informed opinions. 

Please let me know your experiences / opinions - any all would be appreciated.

Thanks...hopefully I end up wanting a scope that SWFA sells, seems like a great store.
