Hey guys, first post. I found thist site from THR and the HIDE. so here's my problem, to many options.
Im running circles between what scope to go with.
Originally I was going with a falcon menace 4-14X44 ffp in the mil/mil configuration. Then I noticed the new weaver tactical 3-15X50, FFP no info on the turrets (mil - 1/4 moa). Then I got a look at this post over on the hide http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubb...1191777&page=1 down around 3/4 of the way, thats some pretty sharp glass to me. Lastly is the IOR 2.5-10X42 30mm FFP Ilum. MP8. I have got some bad reports of the IOR FFP, but supposedly its confined to the 3-18 models. But it has mil adjustments.
The gun is an AR that Im going to use in a DM role and possibly some paper punching out to 500 yds.
I know the 3x9 would get me out to 500 yds (might have some problems with paper at 500 yds with only x9) and no side focus (looses tactCOOL points)
The weaver has the low end x3 and high end x15 and the side focus (if even a purely ascetic thing) but no info on the turrets still. I think the glass would be good.
The falcon has everything, but Im wondering about the glass quality and tracking of adjustments. Being its the cheapest of the bunch, Im just worried about it being any good.
The IOR is top dog in this group (although every time I read something about the SS 3x9 that race just gets a little closer, dang that side focus). It has mil turrets, but isnt the MP-8 ret. a MOA based ret?
So what do you think?
