scope mounts
 
I just got a Nikon p-223 scope for my ar-15 and now I need scope mounts... I don't know what size I need or what kind or anything? Can someone lead me in the right direction please

I think it depends on what kind of upper you have on your ar-15. Do you have a handle? Is it a flat top? Etc.

Burris PEPR @ $70 or RRA Cantilever @ $56. I use the RRA and it works great. The one-piece mounts can be dismounted and re-installed quickly without losing zero. This is a huge advantage IMO.

Burris:

RRA:

Both also come in 30mm size for same price.

I second the Burris PERP mount it's solid and looks the sleekest out of all of them... Here's what it looks like on my RRA.

Put a sign in your front yard that reads "Gun Free House" & see where the criminals go.

Okay thanks guys! It seems like a really nice scope, I got it today for my 21st birthday. And does the front a2 sight show up in the scope?

I use a 2-7X32 scope on my AR and even on 2-power you don't see the front sight at all.

Snakedriver and Ben, thanks for those links above, they were very helpful! I've been wanting to try a cantilever mount to gain a little more eye relief. Hard to decide between the three listed, the Nikon would match my Nikon 3-9x40 but it's listed at 12oz. The RRA is nice and lighter at 10oz while the Burris is 9oz and has the extra rail caps if you want. I finally ordered the Burris P.E.P.R. because I've always liked the design and wanted to try JoeBob's. Decent price at JoeBob's, the only cheaper price I found was used on Amazon (only $4 less).

I like joebobs, and have ordered a lot from them. The best thing about them? If you know you're going to get a good bit of stuff, make any order over $90.00 and S&H is free, which, while the part may be a dollar or two cheaper and some other site, after adding in S&H, you wind up saving money by getting bulk shipped free.

I think you made a good choice. The Burris PEPR is loaded with nice features.

Don't forget that Joe Bob's offers Veterans a 5% discount by adding THANKYOU to the coupon code. They also offer a 5% discount to Firearms Talk Forum folks by entering FT in the coupon code at checkout. Along with having really great prices, their shipping is super fast.

Quentin, when you get your scope rig all mounted-up, post a picture for us. :cool:
