I need to scope my new Rock river 24 inch AR-15 I will be shooting at 100-300 yards .I need a high power scope because I can't makeout the 8-10 ring at 300 yards with a leupold 3x9x40.I 'm thinking at least 24 power. The scope must hold zero and be very accurate. what is the lowiest price scope you can recomend to preform this task?

if its jsut for target shooting, you can probably get by with the super sniper 16x, or 20x. i have the 10x42 on my RRA varmint 18" and it works fine out as far as i haev shot it, which is 500 yards. im not srue about a scope with good quality in below $300. if you step up to 379 you can get the bushnell elite 4200 (just for you Roy) and for $10 more you can get it with a mildot. it is the scope i would recommend.

BTW, the bushnell 4200 scope i am referring to is the 6-24x40, the mildot version is 389.95, and the plex version is 379.95, and both come with a free $100 gear bag.

Chris,

I've been deciding on my scope, and it has basically come down to the 3 you mentioned here.  I like the the monarch for the target knobs, but wish it came in a mil-dot that wasnt illuminated.  Is there any way to get a non-illuminated monarch mil-dot?  Otherwise I think the bushnell is prolly the way for me to go.

That's the only way to get a mil dot in the 6.5-20 Monarch, so it looks like the 4200 it is.

Ok The Nikon is out of my range and the Bushnell 4200 is at the end of my range so I am checking into the Weaver line and I have a bunch of silly questions.

 

1.Who makes there glass?Rather where is there glass made?

 

2. What's the diff between the V- series and the grand slam series ?

 

3. Does the V series come with the target knobs?

 

4. If these scopes are so good why are they not priced higher?Are these like Simmons?

 

5.How is there costomer service and warranty also if it breaks do I send it to you or them?

 

6. Of the V series and the grand slam which would you recomend for my needs as I described at the start of this topic and why? 

 

7.How much windage and elevation adjustment does this scope have ?Example: 100 MOA windage and 100 MOA elevation and how much windage and elevation does it have in a full turn 360 %rotation?Example: 10 MOA

                                

Also I found a scope called Sightron it seams to be compared to the Weaver V 6-24x42 is this as good as the Weaver  V scope and why or why not?

Weaver does not share with anyone as to who makes the glass for them.

 

V series is lesser quality glass and coatings, does not use the micro-trac adjustments

 

The V-16 and V-24 have low profile finger adjustable knobs but not full blown target knobs, you have to go with the T Series or Tactical Series to get real target knobs.

 

When Weaver sold a few years back their game plan was to offer the best scopes for the money.  High quality and low profit margins are the quickest way to success...also the quickest way to bankruptcy.  You can bet the prices will slowly be working their way up once they gain more and more market share.  Supply and demand will start to take over.....Economics 101

 

Their customer service is average.

 

I would recommend the V-24 because it is has 24x, low profile finger adjustable knobs, holds zero,  and is priced lower than the Grand Slam and these are things you require.

 

Which scope do you want to know about the adjustment travel?

 

Don't know anything about Sightron.  We have taken a few on trade and they appear to be well made.

the sightron is going to be of higher quality than the weaver. im not positive about this, but im almost sure its sightron that makes the glass for leupy's. they are jsut about some of the best scopes out there, as randy wakeman states in chuckhawks.com about sightron... "one of the best kept secrets in optics"..... but personally, i dont like the name, the same way with weaver. nothing wrong with them, but my weirdness takes over.
