I just bought my first 50 cal. an Armalite AR-50. It is an awesome gun and shoots great but I need to get a scope that matches the quality of the gun. Any suggestions???

The vast majority of 50 shooters with opinions will tell you Leupold or Nightforce. I personally had a Super Sniper 20X on my AR50 for about 2.5 years with about 1200 rounds through it. Zero problems and I'd do it over again. Others have had the SS crap out with less than 100 rounds. A friend had a SS10X on his Serbu for a long time but replaced it with a SS20X just for more magnification. I guess he was happy with his too.

I just went to a SA Gov't Gen 3 just because its bigger and has an extra knob. Actually I moved the SS to an AR10 and needed a new scope and the Springfield has some great features for the $$$. Your AR50 has pretty mild recoil so either of these scopes should serve you well.

Thanks!

The only thing I do left handed is shoot.

Come to GunStock and you can shoot it.
