First AR optic?
Sorry, I know this is asked all the time so I'll try to be specific to my needs.
Colt LE6920 SOCOM II 5.56 1:7 twist, shooting 62gr. Mostly paper hunting, indoor / daylight outdoor ranges from 50-200 yards. Small zoom, my eyesight is average. Budget around $300-$500 but I'm willing to go higher for quality. I'd prefer to keep my BUIS fixed front, flip up rear in place.
This probably reduces my options from infinite to billions but even general advice or brands would help. Thanks, TFL!
