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.
