I have to decide on one all-around optic for my 16" AR. Purpose: 60% patol rifle, 40% recreational rifle.

Has anyone compared or tested the following optics side to side?

1) Elcan Specter DR.

2) Trijicon TA31DOC.

3) Leupold Mark IV CQ/T.

Any objective feedback would be appreciated.

The Elcan is really nice but it's damn pricy.

What's the price of the Elcan Specter DR?

I found the CQ/T for $699.95 and the TA31DOC for $1,650.00

Are there any other optics that are viable for CQ and 200+ meters?

Short Dot would be another viable option.

Elcan Specter DR cost around 1500.

I have the CQ/T and love it. Very fast up close, crystal clear optics and at 3X plenty of magnification for intermidiate ranges.

I was also considering the S&B 1.1-4 x 20 CQB Short Dot Police Marksman II (the price is the only downside).

After some online research I found the following page: (There is some nice information regardig CQ and intermediate optics on this page)

One other (cheaper) option I was considering:

IOR Valdada 1.1-4x26 Tactical 30mm Rifle Scope for $699.95.

I have the IOR 1.1-4x, with the new reticle, I REALLY like it.
