Going to be hard to hit anything with that.

well flip up irons for now but I have no idea which ones to get.
This rifle will receive a Noveske barrel some time in the future. I am going for varmit killin more so than tactical setup at least for this upper build.

So I am going to need a scope right?

anybody ever heard anything about these guys?

They seem to have some great reviews.
What company makes them?
whats the big difference between a 42mm objective and a 50mm in terms of performance (scope info in general)

Thanks all

I picked one up today. I will bring her home tomorrow.

I just could not wait for an upper so I went and picked up a complete rifle at SM guns in Eugene. I am having a trigger job done and the foreend switched out to a free float.

Any one in the Eugene area in need of an AR should stop in there. They have more black rifles in there than ever before. I know some people don;t like the place. But they are local and I like to support the local guys.

Pics to come when I get her home.

I believe the larger the objective the more light it can capture. The tube diameter also comes into play. Then there is the field of view. Shit I'll wait till someone who knows how to say it better comes in and corrects me

A larger objective lens will allow more light through, but will only be most noticeable during lower light conditions. The size of the tube doesn't really affect light transmission, but may allow larger intermediate lenses which will.

Larger tubes and lenses also add weight to the scope. Honestly, with a carbine style rifle, I wouldn't go larger than a 3-9x42. Don't think the larger magnification or lenses is important. But then again, it ain't my gun. If you think you need it, get whatcha need.

I concur.......aks yourself honestly, how far away do you expect to be shooting things with it. Not "what I wish I could do", but an honest, no-shit asessment. You will probably find it to be <300 yards. Then you have to ask, "Do I really need a 16x scope for 300yds??"

YMMV

+1
listen to what he said
I have a 3-9x40 on my AR, and it's more than enough for 300 yd shots. I've made shots over 500 yds with it before.
I suggest getting a Leupold. you won't be disappointed.

I’ve gotta get on to I-5 for that.

Congrats on the rifle.

I’d also recommend something like a 3x9 or fixed 4x or 6x to start with for your new rifle. Check ePay see what’s out there in the Leupold and Nikon flavors.

That looks pretty cool. If you get one give us a range report. I'm interested in how precise the adjustment knobs are. Can you shoot, dial it up and over several inches shoot and with the same number of clicks back shoot one right on top of the first.

I imagine there is a name for this process but I don't know what it's called. I would like to get a lit reticle, hig power varmint scope at a reasonable price. I received a Nikon Buckmaster 4-18 X 40 as a gift. I think that's what it is. It has nice target knobs and can be adjusted and put back with great repeatability. It was only $300. I found out while varmint hunting this last summer that a lit reticle would be best.

They tend to get flamed in the "Optics" section as re-branded Korean junk. Like this
