    AR scope

    I bought this.....
    http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=117862

    its on my AR. I am having an issue... because the length between the rings is fixed. How can I order a scope and know it will fit?


    that is all

    this is one of the scopes I am considering. I can then use for HD & for Coyotes. I want it to have 1x zoom and adjustable up. more than 30mm for light gathering at night(coyotes). shots from 20 - 150 yards.

      Best to buy a scope you can hold in your hands and check it. That means a real dealer and he will maybe mount and bore sight it for free Mine does. Mail order is not the answer. Face to Face is better

        It appears the rings are 3.2" ring to ring, looks like the scope would fit. Can you pull up a schematic of the scope?

            Ah but MT if you go to the local dealer and actually see and touch the product, you remove all the excitement and fun of wondering whether it will all work. I do prefer to go to a local dealer when ever possible.

                  With adjustable power scopes, it's extremely important to get one with parallax adjustment. This scope does not appear to have that feature. You can tell because there will be an adjustment ring round the end of the objective.

                        The one you mention is TG8516BHX and is NOT listed as parallax adjustable. I bought a centerpoint at walmart which does adjust, but it's big and heavy and I think I'd be better off with a fixed power scope. I tried several adjustable power scopes without parallax adjustment and they all suck big time unless you're shooting 100 yards.

                        There are three on that chart marked "parallax adjustable".

                          When I was researching scopes for my AR I continually ran into good reports on the Weaver V-3 1X3 variable with duplex reticle. The specs and price are here: http://www.opticsplanet.net/weaver-r...ng-849400.html

                            I run a Nikon Pro-something-or-other(6000 series, I forget). It's 3-9x40, pretty bright and has the parallax adjustment. What I like about it it the bullet drop reticle. Once I learned how to use it, reaching out and touching something was a breeze. Mounted it on a Savage .308 but I could just as easily mount it to my AR flat top if I wanted to. Needs screwdriver for adjustments. I think I paid a tad over $120.00 for it.

                              I have the same scope, TuxAir. Called a "Pro-Staff". I have it set up in Burris Tactical rings for my AR. Worked out nicely. Really like the bullet drop reticle, too.
