The Leupold FXII 4X33 is a good scope for an AR-15. Here is my Stag Arms 3L:

I recommend the Bushnell 4200 6-24 x 50 Model 426245T, reliable adjustments, bright, nice big turrets, check it out.

That's a good looking piece, but you need to dump that clamshell and get a free float tube in your future additions.

I would want both in the future as far as optics. But as of right now low power glass is what I am looking for. I also have my eyes on Aimpoint for heads up.
I would definitely recommend dumping that ramp front site and getting a set of folding BUIS. YHM and Troy Industries make some great units with Yankee Hill having the better prices.

A good, fixed power 4 or 6 power would treat you right for what you are looking at doing. As long as you aren't trying to shoot dimes at 300 yards, you don't need a real high power piece of glass. It would narrow your field of view too much and make the weapon less effective in a multiple target situation.

Well I wont be shooting dimes so this should work out for me. Thank you for the knowledge, also in removing the front sight does it slide off once the pins are removed or does it just come right off, dont have to do anything extra.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Do you mind me asking why you mix black with brown.

Brown buttstock, grip, rail and vertical grip? Wasn't sure if its a desired look or just a shortage of parts. Or make it appear not as evil asa black gun lol

"You talking' to me? YOU TALKIN' TO ME??" (My poor Bobby DeNiro impression.)

If you are, it's a result of my photo skills and not a fashion statement.



Now if you are referring to my Name:  offtopic.gif

Size:  610 Bytes AK/SUR, yes it was intentional. (Is intentional.)



This is a social experiment with results as predictable as a Stamford case study. (Albeit conducted with NO government grant funding!)

Of the two above rifles, the COMBLOCK AK was <20% of the outlay of my grant funds. But dressed up as a mall-ninja range attention-whore, the AK gets 80% + of the comments/questions I get while shooting.

From an ego-stroke/economical/pure fun shooting experience, I too like the AK.

So why did I spend the $ for the AR and continue to shoot it on a regular basis? Simple;

When the SHTF, you know what rifle and go-bag I will be grabbing!

Nikon 6-24x50mm SF one of the best pieces of glass out there in the SUB $600 range.
