I have spent a lot of time on here and talking to some professionals I know, and this set up makes a lot of sense, even if it was twice as much as the ACOG. My buddy's point is with this setup I don't really have to buy another scope ever again. I can put it on whatever rifle I get, zero it, record the changes I made, and be good to go back to the other rifle very quickly and easily.
The 3.5-15 made sense to me too. Why limit myself to a fixed 4 power? You guys were right.
The ACOG makes sense to me on my Sig 556R chambered in 7.62x39(I have the 3x32 on that one, with the x39 reticle) because that is a 200 yard gun at best, and is truly only minute of man with that round. This is why I was leaning towards the ACOG in the first place.
Thanks guys for setting me straight.
Your going to love the scope. I had one on my savage 10fcp-sr but the wife claimed it and my scope.
I detest larue mounts. Im CONSTANTLY removing and replacing my acog on my bcm carbine and i found the poi shifts over time due to the cam lever digging a small trench under the rail...
I switched tonadm mounts and havent looked back. Ive found that repeated on many many repititions the larues do not hold zero. The adm mounts have not shifted after a year of use and tons of mount dismount cycles.
Yes i think larue is mostly hype. Heresy but thats my opinion.
