Optics Master Extraordinaire
So im looking to upgrade scopes on my BCM Middy and the US Optics SN-4S really caught my eye.
I want a quality optic on a quality built AR and this fits my needs to a T. I've got other hole punchers and longer range rifles and i really want to keep my usage to 200 yards and in and eventually get into competition shooting.
I prefer a 1-4x optic over a traditional red dot because it does give you more versatility and precision when reaching out to further distances (ie 100-200 yards). This scope is compact, and weighs only 2 more ounces than the cheap Burris i have on there now. I'm getting closer to having the funds saved up and really feel a justifiable need to put a great scope on a great gun. US Optics will let you build the scope to your desire and specs which is a GREAT feature.
My question is this: I've not had any experience with US Optics products personally. I know they have a tremendous reputation and are top of the line quality. This scope also doesn't blow my bank account apart at right around $1170 per US Optics website. I'm not looking to spend more than that, and of the 1-4x scopes in that price range, im having a hard time finding something that peaks my interest more. I love the compact size and ruggedness, reticle selection, and obviously the reputation.
Anyone out there have first hand experience and if so what are your thoughts? Also, would you recommend going with a US Optics mount or some one else. Being shorter in length i imagine you'd need a pretty specific mount size to work.
Thanks for reading.
