You seemingly did do alot of research and came in with a better than usually understanding and list...  You listened to some extremely solid advice and LISTENED!  Cudos to you!  Koshkin by the way is an Optics Engineer that evaluates optics for a living and I might add is extremely objective in his evaluations.  You won't find many that are better and I'm wagering none that are as forth coming and generous with their knowledge.  He will accurately grade the measurable and quantifiable qualities, its just up to you to decide which one pushed your button best... aesthetically.
 
Have fun while your at it.  There is one here that has probably gone thru  at least 100 scopes since he joined the forum.  Man wouldn't that be the cats wiskers!!!!  Being able to play with and use that many scopes... gotta be one that just calls to you in there somewhere...

Hope I didn't come off as defensive, didn't mean to for sure.  I understand though.  I have been on a lot of different threads for various research purposes.  I know a lot come in totally in the dark.  I will say, for all the threads I have been on, this is one of the nicest for sure.  I have seen WAY too many where someone comes in asking a question and they get blasted saying "click here..." or "search here for answers then come back..."  So I just tried to do what I could before posting.  Again, great knowledge and friendliness in here for sure and I do appreciate ALL the input.

I will have tons more questions moving forward I am sure, and I am glad I have a place to ask them.

Ask away!  Though I personally am not that heavy into ARs, there are several here who eat live and breath them.  I seem to remember Seekins being mentioned several times.  I myself use SWFA SSALTs on both my ARs.
 
Oh and I thank you on behalf of the OT.  We pride ourselves on being tolerant and patient with the newly interested knowledge seeker.  How else are we going to keep our favorite pastime alive and well?  I agree that several of other sites seem to exhibit way to much snobbery and hostility toward newbies.... Even ones WITH vast knowledge but new to their site will get it...  Private club mentality if you ask me...
 
From what I'm seeing here, I think you'd make a good addition to the OT.  You obviously look before you leap so rash decisions are unlikely. You are respectful of others opinion and feelings.  You have an obvious thirst for knowledge.  And you have the most important thing... you love guns, shooting and optics.  If you've really perused this site you already know how vast the different optics related interests swing here...  Something for everybody...
 
I have learned so much here about good optics, guns, reloading, mechanical issues and fixes... the list goes and goes just like my mouth...
 
Anyway....I'm sure you'll get help with mounts too... However you might want to rephrase that rather open ended inquiry as it could get you buried in data from some of our big brains rather quickly Wink
 
So look around, ask questions and don't be shy... We've all had our shots, Wink a few of us bark but that's just to cover up their big hearts... and most are happy to share their knowledge.  Hopefully you'll get hooked on the OT like I did... wow it's been 5 yrs already... amazing they haven't hung me yet! Cool

This is the one Buds talking about -
SWFA SS AR Tactical Mounts
SWFA S.S.A.L.T. 30mm Scope Mount SWFA S.S.A.L.T. 30mm Scope Mount
Stock # - SS30HSSALT
  • Picatinny MIL-STD-1913
  • Matte
  • Comes with 1" Inserts
$59.95 
 it even has the ability to add caps with rails made into it for a red dot or reflex for close up work -
 
What I woudl recommend -
SWFA Precision Optic 30mm Mount SWFA Precision Optic 30mm Mount
Stock # - SWFA201300
  • Low
  • Slightly Forward
$209.95 
SWFA Precision Optic 30mm Mount SWFA Precision Optic 30mm Mount
Stock # - SWFA202300
  • 30mm
  • Low
  • Extended
$209.95 
These are very solid mounts.  They hold zero well when taken on and off.  Lockup on the rail is good and they allow you to quickly mount and unmount your scope if you so choose.
