First of all, I have 2 home build AR's.
I have one light weight short range CQB type AR and a second heavier battle rifle which I have built both.
The short range gun has a lightweight red dot and will likely be fitted with an EO Tech sight as soon as possible.
The BR type gun is a bit heavier. It is a 17" A2 profile rifle gas barrel. It currently wears a 1-4x 30mm tube Millet DMS1 scope. Under 300 yards, this is a fine optic, except for weight and magnification. I'm looking to cut weight and increase magnification.
So, I'm looking to upgrade my Millet DMS-1. . . .My ideal replacement would be:
1 - 2.5x on the low end - 1x being better when/if 25 yd and under shooting is required
8 - 10x on the high end - 10x being better
No target knobs to save weight
BDC reticle to assist reaching out beyond 300 yards
Smaller (<42mm) obj for light weight and low mount height
no fuss, forgiving eye box(easy/quick to get full view)
Generally a good quality optic under $400 - I don't need a best scope, I need a good usable scope. Shooting at night, use as a hammer, etc are outside how my scope will be used.
So, I like these choices, but feel free to tell me what to look at:
Burris 1.5-6x40 MTAC
Weaver 2-10X38 Classic V-10 Riflescope Ballistic-X Reticle Matte
Burris Fullfield E1™ 2-7x35 Riflescope Ballistic Plex E1 Reticle Matte
