AR Scope ~$150
 
I need a reccomendation for a buddy who is in the market for a variable magification scope for his AR. His budget is ~$150..

He's shooting 50-100' and would like something compact, it would be mounted on a flattop A3.

He's been lookin at some crappy scopes on cheaperthandirt by BEC for like $60 but I told him he's throwing his money away.

I don't know anything about scopes since I went with an Eotech setup on mine which is a bit out of his price range :eek: :o

thanks all

50-100' or 50-100 yards?

He doesn't need a variable power for 50 - 100yd. shooting. I would look at the Nikon Pro Staff in Walmart for $150.They have a couple on sale - one is a fixed 4x, which would be ideal for what your friend wants to do, and the other is a variable 2-7x for $199. I have a 4x on my AR and I can shoot sub1" groups at 100 yds all day with it. Higher magnification at short range is an impediment, not a help.

Yards, my mistake.

scope link

or look at riflescopes.com or opticsplanet.com

If you can find one on sale, also look at the Millet DMS-1 (1-4x power, for those close shots to longer ranges, too)
