View Full Version : a scope for my AR?

May 5, 2001, 04:34 PM
I have some money for a scope for my Colt AR. It has a fixed carry handle. I would like to buy a scope and mount for it. It is accurate but I don't see as well as I did when I was young. I hand load the sierrra 77 grain moly coated round an it shoots very well. I can't see out to the range I would like to shoot. What can I get for a few hundred that would also let me use the iron sites as well. Thanks, John Mason MSG USA (retired and getting old)

I use a Leupold Vari-II 1x4 shotgun scope with the thick reticle.

On one of my ARs with the fixed carrying handle, I have the Tasco 3x9 rubber armored scope with integral rings. The base is the ARMS detachable with the Colt logo. Another upper wears the 3x Colt scope.

Thanks for the help. I ordered a colt 4 power today. John
