Currently have new Bushmaster AR15 and wish to buy a new scope. Currently have a basic red dot scope yet no Mag on it. Wish the new scope to range to 100 yards with mag in bvetween so I do not have to wear my prescription glasses for mild nearsightness. Have looked at Nikon M223 so far...would EOtech or others be a better options,,,Thanks

WELCOME!!!

May you have the patience to get your answers from the Forum as many on here can offer great experiences.

I believe you will always have to wear your corrective lenses a scope to my knowledge cannot correct your vision and magnify.

I have had a few people buy the nikon m223 because they could go up to the local Trophy and Clothing store and look through them, I suggest you buy from SWFA as the price will be better.  They will also give you a trade in if and when you can and want to afford better glass.

The EOTECH is a battle ready Aiming device it is not a scope and the magnifier does not make a good scope.  EO-Techs are best suited for point and shoot.

If you could can you give us what you will be targeting and what other uses are possible.

What magnification range are you looking for???  What distances are you engaging at?

The way the sentence is worded makes me think that english may be your second language because some of what you are asking is not really an easy to understand question.  So let me take guess - You want to be able to shoot 100 yd targets and want some magnification.  The word Mag typically refers to the magazine which holds ammunition.  Illinois is not really a user friendly state for an AR with high capacity mags so you really better pay close attention to their laws so as not to get into trouble.  There are a LOT of scopes that are very suitable for an AR but it really depends on how much a guy wants to spend and how he wants to use the rifle.  SWFA has a list of some of the more popular AR scopes
http://swfa.com/Optic-Packages-C4618.aspx  For what I think you are wanting I really kind of like the  2-7 Redfield its very reasonably priced.  This is a good all around scope quite suitable for 100 yd targets or coyotes but not enough power for prairie dogs.

If you decide to get really serious about your target shooting I like this scope a lot and Iwould use either the La Rue quick detach ringmount or the Bobro quick detach ringmount but those mounts alone are more than the entire redfield package above.  This is a great target scope but some guys spend thousands of dollars on very expensive optics but most of us cant afford that so this is a good alternative.

I would have to agree with urimagineryfriend if that is what you are looking for as I too didn't really understand your question.
