Just purchased a new Colt 6920 yesterday and am trying to go the inexpensive route.
Want to get the Nikon p 223 3-9X40 based on Amazon reviews.
Question is will I have any issue with the fixed front post with the 1 inch mount?
Is the a better scope under $250ish I should be looking at?
Will only be range shooting.
1 inch mount refers to the diameter of the scope, not the height of the rings. In either case, it will be fine. At 3x, the front sight might appear as a smudge towards the bottom of the view, or you may not notice it at all. If it bothers you, you can turn it up to 4 and above, and it should disappear from view.
