Hi, I'm a complete newbie to all of this with probably some stupid questions. I've never owned an AR rifle, let alone a rifle with a scope, but hand guns have lost my interest and this where I'm going.  I'm getting a  Stag Arms 6L Super Varminter,  its a left handed 5.56 AR based rifle with a 24" SS barrel.    My primary initial use will be hitting the range and doing some paper punching at 100 yards,  from there.... Hopefully longer range shooting and possibly some varmint down the road.  I don't know what would be better for me, a variable or fixed magnification??         I'm looking for the right scope, scope mounting, and bi-pod for my application.  Seeing the rifle is about 42.25" long, I think a pretty good size scope would be fitting.  I'm not looking to spend a lot of money for my first scope. I'm thinking probably around $200, but I might be willing to spend a little more if its something really bad ass.   There is so much junk on-line it's hard to find a decent source, I had someone suggest a Bushnell Elite 3200 But I don't know if that's any good.
 
Any help is appreciated, and thanks for reading my dumb Nu-B questions Bucky

Several guys use the Burris PEPR mount for the flat-tops, not saying its best but works great.  I have a fixed 10x Bushnell 3200 on mine and love it mounted with the PEPR these a picture here.  SWFA's Super Sniper line has an AR mount that is going to be release soon, I hope, that will be IMO better than the Burris because it will come with reducers and the reputaion of SS and SWFA!
 
Good luck, welcome to the OT, Happy Shooting
 
And no real question is dumb when gathering info only not asking is dumb.

Awesome, thanks for the help.  I'm really not sure if fixed or variable would be better for me, but your the second person to suggest the Bushnell 10x40 Elite 3200.  I was looking at the RRA mounts but, I'm going to check out PEPR mounts for sure, your setup looks good.

I use a set of Warne Ultra High QD rings for my 4.5-14x42 Sightron SII with an HHR reticle.  Works well for me.  So that would be my suggestion.

As far as mounts go the Burris Xtreme Tactical extra high 1" rings worked for me.
