I am just curious as to what everyone has for a combination in scope, rings, or mounts. Why did oyu choose what you did? Pictures would be greatly appreicated for reference. Thanks.

Sorry no pics but...

I have a 20" AR10A4 that most of the time has a TA11E sitting in a Larue throw lever mount. Larue makes great stuff and is a great company to deal with. I chose the TA11 to replace my Aimpoint because I was doing mostly longer range shooting but I still wanted teh ability to have a both eyes open/BAC option for close in if needed.

I also keep a Leupold Vari-X III Tactical 3.5-10x40 sitting in an Armalite one-piece mount. The Armalite mount is rock solid and returns zero every time. I use this scope when the bolt guys start talking trash.

I only own three ARs:

1. M4gery wearing an EOTech 512 mounted on an LaRue ECOS-C mount.
2. 20" heavy barrel varminter wearing a Super Sniper 10X and LaRue SPR mount
3. 20" HBAR wearing nothing but iron sights.

14.5" A2 with TA31
A no-brainer for the A2

16" Dissy flatop with TA31F in LT mount
Had to have another ACOG, another no-brainer with LaRue Tactical

24" Varminter with Mk 4 rings & Leupold V3 4.5-14X50
Heck of a nice optic setup for the money, no complaints.

14.5",16",18" MRP with 3X Magnifier/Samson QF & Aimpoint M3 2 MOA/ARMS Cantilever mount and also a NF NSX 3.5-15X50 in LT QD rings
With it's different barrels the MRP is a do it all platform, so are these two optic setups (again LT a no-brainer).

Valmet M-78 .308 with a Leupold 3-9X40 on a totally custom mount.
This was 1984, I didn't have a clue but the scope (my first!) is still dead on after all these years.

NHM-91 with a PK-A
Just did this one (had the rifle since 1993!), simple, rugged, efficient, cheap. Little to no interest on the AK forum, so I think I'll post the picture here for us guys here on the dark side.

I have a new Armalite A4 with their scope mount. Question? If I take it off it will return to zero when put back on? I might like to slap my eotech on it every now and then.

Tasco 8-32 with adjust from 25 feet to infinity. I picked it because it was cheap, it came with a spotting scope, and I like to see what I am shooting at at 300 yards. My 20" bushy keeps 1.5" groups at that distance, the scope helps.

Leupold VXII 3-9x40 AO sitting in an Armalite 1" 1-piece mount. Sits on top of a RRA NM A4. The mount sits the scope LOW but I like it. MJD

More or less...it almost certainly won't be exact, but it should be close enough for .gov work, as they say.

I tested one of mine one day...I *think* it was a set of ARMS rings, and got about 1/4"...which I though was pretty good.
