I am extremely new to AR's and hoping someone can help me out. I have on order a new LE6920Socom and hoping to put an optic on it. I plan on using this as the firearm between my handgun and sniper rifle. I assume this would fit in the 10ft out to 100ft+ Range. I would like quick close up target acquisition but still maintain accuracy at a distance.
I am looking at the below and hoping someone could guide me in the right direction. As you can see I am still trying to decide between and magnified and non-magnified optic.
1) Aimpoint Pro
2) Aimpoint Micro T1
3) Vortex PST 1-4x24
4) Burris MTAC 1-4x24
IMO if you go with a 1-4x your going to want the best for the truest 1x possible, and that means a Leaupold or Trijicon etc.. which cost more than what you listed. Then again if all your doing is shooting at the range then what you listed is fine.
I would go with the Aimpoint Micro cause imo it is the best size for a single dot reticle, and I cant afford a Leupold Mark 6 or GRSC 1-6x at this moment.
Aimpoint T-1 on a larue mount.
I've tried 1-4, acogs, eotech and I'm never taking the T-1 of my rifle. Never.
