Im looking into getting an AR after Christmas and was wanting to look at different optics ideas. My rifle in mind is a Bushmaster M4 and any ideas you could give me would help out. Try to include a pic or a link and extras like price, store, etc. would also help me out. Thanks!

All kinds of stuff out there...

It all depends on what you wanna spend, and what type of sighting system you want.

I am planning to use my AR mostly for shooting Vermin, not home defense, or playing at the range....

I have a Leupold MK-AR 3x9x40 scope mounted with a Burris Proper Eye Relief mount.

First off, what do you think you'll be using it for??

Hunting? I'd go with a regular rifle scope. I put a 3-9x40 Nikon ProStaff on mine, over a QD LaRue mount. Made quite the shooter out of my Stag. Used this scope because it was laying around gathering dust.:wave:

Home Protection? ACOG, EOTech, and other "red dot" type sights are probably better.

Soon as I can rathole enuff cash, mine will be sporting an ACOG!!!.:wave:

I would beware of the NCstar scopes. There is threads on AR15.com dedicated to how junky they are.

How is the reticle? I heard people were getting them with slightly canted reticles?

Is there anything out there that would fit a dual purpose? What I mean is I would like to shoot wild doggies with it, but then again I like the coolness and small package of some of the fancier lighted scopes. Know what I mean? Or am just talking crazy?

Reflex....what does that thing cost?

I can't zoom in enough to read what types of scopes they are, but should give you an idea of what you can do with an M4:D

Hunt10... the eotechs and similar are for FAST target acquisition.

I struggled with this decision myself because I wanted the small package BUT I also wanted some magnification.

The AR332 scope that I bought gives you a bit of each. Go checkem out... the reticle is VERY user friendly also and has some BDC capabilies as well.

Most any Eotechs or Aimpoints can be used with a 3x magnifier. It's as expensive package, but it's one you'll only have to buy once in your lifetime. Buy cheap, buy twice, maybe three times when it comes to a good optic IMO.
