You didn't offend anyone. Using the correct terminology is important . Words have power.

Calling a semi automatic only ar15 ak47 or any other semi auto only rifle an "assault rifle" is like calling a prius a f1 racer.

Assault rifles are rifles that have been used to assault someone and this can be a a single shot 22lr or any other rifle out there, second type is a rifle that has full auto 3 round burst or combination of both and is issued by a government to its military forces.

It just helps to be clear when asking for info or opinions. No one is offended

But the price tag is still less than most acog configs which people had suggested/mentioned...

Bushnell TRS25 is one but the favorite on my semi auto carbine is the Bushnell Trophy 1-4x24 scope with a 4A reticle and a 1 moa red dot built in. I like to keep it simple with an uncluttered reticle. I can use it with or without power and dont have to contend with a swing away magnifier.

Durable.
Accurate

Except the price tag
So would you say that it's worth the price for a scar 16 ?

Scar16 no. Scar17 yes. There isn't enough performance gap between a scar16 and a good ar15 as there is in the scar17 to any ar10 to warrant the cost difference.

There are so many variations on optics for the AR that you have to decide for yourself what you are wanting one for? I like Eotechs for the large field of view. I like Aimpoints for the tiny dot not covering up the target I am aiming at. I like optic scopes for being able to see what it is you are wanting to shoot at long distances. They make them with fiber-optics that require no batteries, etc, so they would be prefect for a real SHTF scenario. (Mepro and Trijicon for starters), What are you wanting to use one for?

For long range and varmint extermination a good conventional variable power scope.

I prefer the iron sights on my AK's and an optic sight for 'hunting' with an AR. I use a 3x9x40 on a QD mount


for a shtf moment, ill put on a red dot sight instead
