If i plan on running an offset T1, should i get an acog ta31 or a comparable low powered variable (ie. 1-4, 1-6, 3-9, 2.5-10)

I think if you have a variable 1-4x you dont have a real reason for a T1, thats part of the attraction to the variable. I know a 1-4x isnt a True 1x, but I have never noticed an issue when using them up close the same way I would use a red dot. The variable 1-4 or 1-6 is the future in my opinion. They are getting stronger and clearer. That said I have my first acog on the way so I like both. I will be getting a T1 offset as soon as I get some time behind the acog.

Edit: a 3-9 or 2.5-10 with an offset T1 would be perfect on a "precision carbine" setup IMO

I'm running a Leupold Mark 6 1-6x with a T1 offset on a Larue LT724 mount. I would say that in general a 1-X powered scope doesn't really need an offset RDS. However, in my opinion, there is a combat application to using a set up like this.

I would say if you got the money, go for it. It's stupid fast and easy to transition from distant targets (100-300 meters) to close targets (<100 meters). Cost aside, if you're gonna run offset irons with a 1-X scope, why not run an offset RDS?

So are you saying something like a mark 6 with the t1 is better than the acog with it?
