Picking up a 16 inch Heavy Barrel Flat Top Upper AR tomorrow. Debating on optics. Looked at the EO tech today, but I am leaning towards something with some magnification for Varmit hunting like a 3x9x40 scope.

Most shots would be under 100 yards, but with some up to 200 yards shots. Wanted to see what others have used that has worked for you???? I am also using a 4 position CAR type stock.

Thanks in advance for the advice.....

Determine what your primary function is first then go from there.

I hear good things about the super sniper scope that SWFA sells. Only bad thing is it fixed focal length, no zoom.

SUPER SNIPER

Check out the Acogs, I think the model TA01 might be right for your setup. It a bit spendy but has 4x magnification.

I have three acogs, love them, no batteries, tough construction, compact size, a great additon to a flat top. Below is the link for the military issue unit, only dif is dust caps and windage indication.

I went with a Luepy "European 30" 1.25-4x22.

Leupold looks more like what I am looking for, not sure I need a $1,500 site set up for a $700 rifle.

I'm just looking for now and I'm considering the Trijicon AccuPoint 3X9X40 red triangle or even an equivalent Nikon scope.
