I am close to purchasing my first AR-15. I have already ordered a stripped lower and am just waiting for more money to come around for the rifle kit. In the meantime, I am trying to decide which scope would work best for my rifle. I am trying to keep the price under $200. Additionally, I would like the low magnification to be 2x. Not quite a red dot but still adequate for CQB.
The two I have been considering are the Redfield Revolution 2-7 riflescope for $140
Weaver V-10 2-10 for $180
Anyone have experience with either of these or any other options I should consider?
Also, I will need mounts. I would like to cram a scope and a buis all on a flat top AR. It will not have a railed handguard so space is limited.
I like the Millet DMS-1. That looks like a good option with an illuminated reticle. I know I want something that has magnification because I will be using the AR to shoot from 100 to 200 yards at times. I'm just now sure if 4x will be enough. Targets may include ground hogs What is the quality like on the Millet? Is the dot nice and precise? I know it says 1 MOA but is the dot crisp or are the edges messy?
