Congratulations.

If you go with a red dot, I would suggest a 2 MOA. I have an Aimpoint Comp M3 on my Socom, and the smaller MOA helps with the accuracy for sure.

I was only considering the 4 MOA because it was $100 off on MidwayUSA. The 2 MOA wasn't on sale. However, I do agree with you, I much prefer the smaller sizes to larger sizes. Nikon has an adjustable red dot sight that I believe has 1 MOA, 2 MOA, 4 MOA, 6 MOA, and 10 MOA. All in one, anyone have any thoughts on that? I thought it was quite interesting, but have no idea how it'd actually perform or hold up to a caliber like my .308. My scope is rated for .50 caliber use so I don't really worry about it.

The Hammer 2x42 which Doc told me (us) about seemed okay for the price, but the reviews on it were bad. People talked about how the reticle comes loose and starts spinning in the barrel when fired from standard AK-47 and such calibers.

I agree with you Jim, I sure do love the M1A line. They're all amazing weapons, even the Mini 14 is fantastic (from what I hear).

Can't speak to the Nikon line with the adjustable dot-size, but the smaller the better, in my opinion. I have a few Nikon scopes that I am very happy with, and I am a strong supporter of Nikon cameras as well.

Yeah I love Nikon, especially like their BDC reticle on their Omega and Monarch series'. No idea how they are with red dot though. I'd expect them to be pretty good because Nikon is amazing at everything else. :P
