I am in the market to buy a new 1-4 for my JP15. I was originally interested in this Leupold Mark AR Mod 1, despite the fact that it is not a true 1 power. I planned on getting the Firedot SPR reticle and with Leupold's mount $350 seems like a pretty good deal.
After looking at that though, I checked out a SWFA from a co-worker. This one to be exact: SWFA 1-4 MRAD . I like this one but I'm not loving the reticle, and weight difference. Co-worker is asking $600 compared to the $800 brand new price tag and it comes with a cat tail.
Any thoughts or opinions? One of the Leupold 3-9x Mark AR's MOD 1 will end up on my other 18" gun so any opinions on the lower end Leupold glass is welcomed as well.
You might want to look at the vx-r patrol scope with the fire dot reticle.
It's hard to beat the quality of a Leupold.
I got the VXR patrol with Firedot too. I really like it. No experience with SWFA though.
