Well, depends on your preference/price range etc.

Personally, I like low power optics on AR's. For me, my AR is first and foremost a defensive carbine. Not a precision rifle. (I have more appropriate tools for precision). IMO, an AR optic must be usable easily from point blank range, to whatever max distance you want.

I run this: Vortex Viper PST 1-4 X 24mm in a Larue Tactical LT-104 Mount GREAT SYSTEM! I really do love it.

I have shot this system all the way out to 600 yards.

This may be outside your price range, but the Nikon series already mentioned are awesome scopes from what I have heard.

Also, you should look at a mount from Larue, or similar. (Larue mounts are not cheap, but worth every penny) Nikon makes a Larue mount "copy", so does Burris and Weaver. Can't imagine they don't work.

I would say the Nikon scope of your choice, and the offset mount, unless your budget is larger.

America is at an awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.
