+1
I'd sell the rifle before I sold the TA-31F that sits on it.

For target shooting, or on a budget the TA01 is worth a look.
If eye relief is a huge concern, the TA11F is definitely worth checking out.

For a lightweight or shorter range, the TA33 is worth considering.
On an scouting setup, the accupoints are worth considering.

The TA31F is still the best all-around optic for the AR15. TA31F-RCO with RDP-II is tough to beat.
... so basicalyly +2

This baby right hnyah:



TA01NSN - TRD in JPoint winged mount.

Or, if cash is no object, the TA01 or TA31ECOS.

another vote for the Ta31F, I was torn between many different models but finally went with that one, I do not regret it one bit.
All I need now is a killflash, a Larue mount, and some lens caps, and no batteries!!!!
I love that

Tried both the TA11 and TA31 in person? If not you need to before moving any closer to your purchase. The TA11 has noticeably less magnification, noticeably les FOV, and noticably more size and weight to gain its eye relief. The eye relief on a TA31 is VERY short. A TA33 has a REALLY small FOV and even less magnification and thus an even smaller reticle so its even smaller to your eye for BAC use. At least try the TA11 and TA31... Id go straight to a BAC ACOG and bypass the TA01 series.

After you rty both and settle on TA31 or TA11 or decide both are too large and you want a TA33 you need to decide if you want a faster optic or more precision. THEN we can give some decent suggestions.

What's your intended use ?, Rifle cal, barrel length ?

I've got a TA01NSN on my carbine (14.5" tube) and a Ta31RCOA4 on my 20"

I've also got a TA31RCOM4 on my V22 upper as well...I like ACOG's

DevL makes a most excellent point. Until one has actually tried a 31 and an 11 side-by-side, he cannot effectively evaluate how important the substantial difference in eye relief is. In my particular case the 11 is wonderful, and the 31 sucks, YMMV.
