Scenario:

We're shooting an HK91, we're going to light up targets at 25-500yds, we'll be using 1in Weaver mounts (yes, its got an Aluminum reciever, shut up) what would you get?

I was thinking one of the following:
1.) A used Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10x40 - Duplex
2.) A Springfield Armory Pro Optic - 1st or 2nd gen - 4x14 - Mil dot.
or going out on a limb...
3.) A Leatherwood Sporter 3-9x40

These are what have perked my interests, though, I seek your illustrious wisdom for obvious reasons, I have no idea what I'm doing. I've always been an iron sights kinda guy

Thanks

I should also add... I would like mounts that clear the front sight post. Remember, Weaver style. Something that could be detached and see-thru so I can make use of the iron sights. Remember I am new to this, so I may not sound very knowledgable, hence the reason I am even asking.

Thanks

IOR/Valdada has some pretty good scopes.www.valdada.com/For $350, you would probably want the M1 tactical model, although at a fixed 4-power, 500yd shots may be a little difficult.

I've heard a lot of very good things said and written about the Tasco (yes "Tasco") super sniper series of scopes.

Do not discount the product because of the name. I grew up thinking of Tasco as ...well... garbage. They outsource for scopes and put their name on them. This time they picked a quality one.

Just another suggestion....

And in the way of mounts? What mount could I get that would allow me to make use of both the iron sights and scope? If that isn't an option, what is the best mount I can get for my situation? (one which can be removed without tools in case I want to use iron sights)

I can't believe that no ones screamed " Jump all over the Leatherwood" yet, So let me be the first.

I like my leupold, but it lacks field of view. I would prefer a 50mm

For about $390 you can get a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40.

Simmons Actec 2.8-10x44mm. Got one on my Model 70. I'm very happy with it and it only costs around $150.

Capitalist, I bout mistook your name and quote for my own. Reminds me too much of myself :)

You can't buy a better scope than a Nikon for under $600.

I've got a Nikon 4-12x50AO on my short range AR15 and a Nikon 6.5-20 on my long range AR15, both have performed flawlessly and have exceeded my expectations. For under $400 you can find either scope.

Get that tactical scope they just came out with and you've really got something interesting! At 500 yards, you'll appreciate the higher power scopes though, its all a trade off! (Which is why I picked the 4-12x50.)

Bushnell (formerly Bausch & Lomb) Elite 4200 line of scopes are very good for the money. Optics are very clear and the click adjustments accurately return to zero. Can even be had with 3/4 mil dots.

Hensoldt 4x24 with HK Claw Mount $375.

I have one and love it. The set looks to be never issued.

I'll second that. Got an 8-32x44 4200 on my 700P. Nice sturdy scope, good optics. Great bang for the buck.

Call or email Chris at SWFA and ask his opinion for your intended use. He's always pointed me in the right direction within the dollar amount allotted for a purchase.
