Guys- need some help picking out a reasonably priced scope to go on top of the carry handle of my stock MT6601. Perhaps in the $100-200 range. Mostly used for target shooting no more than 600 yards.
Also, my 6601 does not have a compensator. What are the pros/cons of adding one? If it is just to reduce recoil, I don't think it would be necessary as there is very little felt recoil anyway. But your comments are appreciated.
My recommendation is to save up and buy a M16 carry handle mount ACOG. IMO, if you don't have a nice optic, don't get one and just stick with irons.
I had one of these on mine and absolutely loved it.
If you don't mind not having a compensator, then don't install one.
How about a scope like this, and a carry handle adapter? Colt 3x9
If you want to scope your rifle, I've found the Leupold VX-I series (at just a little over $200) to offer the best clarity and brightness of any scope in that general price range. They really are worth the little more than you'll pay for a lower-priced scope.
Get a compensator if you want one, but as you've already noted, it isn't necessary.
