hi there, i don't mean to barge in but i'd like to say i purchased a ncstar 6x24x50 at a gun show for right around 130.00 . I know people say spend as much on your optics as you do your gun your putting it on but I thought I would give it a try .I have been looking at them for about 3 to4 years now and they seem to be pretty darn good. life time warrenty yousend it in with 10.00 and they will fix it or replace it. I don't know how good they stand behind this as i haven't had any problems yet.
Has any one else tried these?

Thank you all, I have purchased a scope that should do all I need it to do. I appreciate all the insight form your years of experience. I settle on a Nikon Monark 4x16 with Mil dot reticle. It should be here by 1/12 just in time for the really cold front coming thru here. Thanks again

I agree, your the only one that knows the range you will be shooting, but a 6x plus is going to be pretty tight if you get something in close. I have two ar's one set up for long range and another for close quarters. Dont like shotguns! The long range is a Nikon Monarch Gold 2.5 to 12 with turrets. Its taken shots out to 500 hundred plus with no problems. My other one is a shorter compact AR with a aim point. That thing is a blast when you get in close to targets. Plus its nice cause you get to shoot with both eyes open.Helps to see where the varmit is running to instead of closing one eye and following it. Nikon

I just researched the whole gammot and ended up with a Nikon Monarch which wasn't even up for consideration when I began...could not be happier

Good choice.
It's not that I don't like people, but the more I'm around 'em, the more I like shootin' coyotes.

That is the beauty of an AR. Larue guarantees the PO to remain the same on their quick detach one piece mount. Daytime long range Prairie dogs, etc. slap on the big glass. If your going calling quick change out to an aimpoint or red dot.
