So for the most part I'm finished with my first ar. I'm still struggling with what optic to put on it. I am a good shot with iron sights out to 500 and went with the a2 upper and flip rear so I would always have that option. That being said I'd like to be spoiled and get an optic with a little magnification. I'm used to the trijicon rco with a chevron, but at 1100-1300 dollars I'm open for suggestions lol. I was also looking at eo tech holo sight with a magnifier, but seeing as I have never used one its lost on me. (I know they can be equally expensive, but I'm not so much worried about price as I am quality and applicability)
Some key points:
-target acquisition. Short and long
-durability (not gonna treat this rifle like a new born)
-how well it holds a zero
-if talking about optics using batteries please at least estimate battery life
Thanks for any suggestions or input/personal experience
I'll be sending $10 their way.
I much prefer this approach to things, than the repeatedly failed tactics of other groups that have gotten us nowhere.
I implore everyone here to please chip in, it's an insignificant amount of cash that can go a long way.
