    Default Help pick $2-300 AR 1x4 Scope

    Hey there, I'm fairly new to 3gun, looking finish a dedicated 3gun AR. I'm looking at the following scopes, any insight would be greatly appreciated. If I'm missing one, feel free to suggest another. Trying to stay around 2-300 including a mount.

    or

    or the primary arms 1-4 or 1-6
    What about mounts? I'm leaning towards the burris pepr mount. I don't care about quick release, just want something reasonably priced that won't move. Any help is greatly appreciated.
    My build is: - Anderson Lower - PSA lower kit - PSA upper - MI 12" SS Gen II - PSA BCG - Magpul fixed stock - PSA 16" chrome 1x9 twist - MI brake

    Vortex or PA will both stand behind their products if there is a problem. Don't know about Millet. Buy the P/A scope at P/A website and get their bundled mount. Can't beat that deal. I know the 1-6x is getting great reviews and rarely stays in stock for long. I am currently on the e-mail waiting list to pick one up.

    Burris pepr mount is a beefy unit.

    midwest industries is showing the PA 1/6 in stock but no bundled mount deals. that 1-4 is hard to beat at 160 with a mount.

    I have a PA 1x-4x on my AR. When I ordered it I ordered the wrong mount and they called me to be sure that what I ordered was what I wanted. It wasn't and they made the correction to my order to give me the correct mount. I don't think that you can get better service than that. The only thing is if you get their scope covers they don't fit very well, too loose. If I was to order one again I would spend the extra and get the Butler Creek covers instead. Other than that issue I'm very happy with the scope.

    Even if you don't go for the PA scope, their deluxe mount is pretty good. Will probably save you a bit over the PEPR

    I don't think anyone makes a $2 scope. They probably range from $150 on up.

    I like the Nikon M series. But since my eyes arent the greatest anymore and i dont need to shoot fast i have Vortex diamondback 4x12 on most of my ARs and now even a few deer rifles. They are 199$ and are very light and very clear.

    How about the Bushnell 1-4 throw down PCL? First focal plane with BDC reticle. Just under $200 I believe.

    I bought the Bushnell. Great scope. It's in your price range. Only negatives are it's a little heavy and the illuminated reticle should be brighter. It still works great without illumination.
