Default Getting a scope: Bushmaster Carbon 15

I recently picked up 2 more guns, one of them being the carbon 15 for a pretty nice deal. I am wanting to find a nice scope for it so I could use it for longer range shooting. What would some of you guys recommend to be best for this rifle? are there any good laser suggestions too for this? I may equip one of those for closer range.

Let me know what you go with. I just got one myself. Did you get the Bushmaster C15 Superlite O.R.C. The one I got come with a red dot.

Yeah that is the same one I picked up, seems like a very solid gun though I haven't been able to put any rounds through it yet. I've always loved the look of the M16 so I'm pretty happy to have my hands on a near identical model. I have heard Leupold's are great scopes, I just want to have something low profile for this beast.

Nice! It looks good, I haven't done a thing to mine yet. I still haven't decided on a scope yet, I want a laser on mine too but would like to incorporate it with the scope somehow, at least on the same tactical rail but not sure how to go about that yet, any ideas?

My local pawn shop had some scopes with lasers built in. Get on amazon, and search Ar 15. You will be amazed.

I did see some on there but will have to take another look at what they have to offer. I just want to make sure I get a nice quality scope as well, I don't need the absolute best but still, a nice one.

I am using a Bushnell Trophy XLT 1-4x24 with a 1 moa red dot on a 4A reticle. It has a 30mm tube. You will need a forward offset mount. You can shop the price.

I have the Sightmark 8.5-25x50 Riflescope on mine. The same one is on my Mossberg ATR 100 30-06.

Lots of good stuff our there for less than $400 just remember you wont be able to use Low profile mounts , your objective end will probably hit the hand guard and to low you will fill like your trying to cram yourself into the gun to hard to get into the scope . You need to think about how far you intend on shooting with it , will it be 300 yards or less or past that out to 500 ? a 1-4 power scope is perfect for 300 or less , you really dont need anything over a 9X for a .223 cartridge . Nikon, Leupold, Burris , Vortex, and Millet are all decent scopes in that price range, Lucid has a really really nice scope for just a little bit over that price, as does a few others .
