Good Scope for M&P15 Sport?
I'm waiting to pick up my Sport and need advice on the optics. I will be using it mostly as a target/range gun and some varminting. Maximum range will be sub 300m. The price is as close to $200 as I can keep it. The Bushnell Trophy Xlt 3-9x40 looks to be about what I'm after. I'm not after top of the line, just good value. Also what kind of mounting rings are needed?
If you're looking for a simple reticle, you might consider the Redfield Revolution scopes. Their 2-7x33 or the 3-9x40 are very nice optics. I prefer the standard 4-plex reticule. Great eye relief and optical clarity.
I cannot speak to rings as I'm new to the AR platform - old M1A guy lookin' to go light
I'm looking into the Nikon scopes for mine. I think the M223? IIRC is pretty decent looking.
That would be my advice. With the kit, mounting rings are included. $325-$350 at SWFA.
