    Someone recommend a good optic for a Marlin 336 lever action in 30-30 Winchester. I am currently looking at a Burris Fullfield II 2x-7x-35mm. Over the decades my "go to" optics have been Nikon. They have provided years of reliability on various rifles my family owns. Then there is the...

    This is for a FN SCAR 17S .308 I'm torn between two Trijicon scopes And I'm hoping to tap into your guys' knowledge and hopefully experience. I like the ability of the scar to reach out and touch something but I feel like the Trijicon ACOG 5.5x50 would cripple me at any distance <50 yards. I...

    Having trouble deciding whether to get a RDS/magnifier combo or a 1-4x optic. I've run cheap versions of both, but feel those are not accurate representations, and none of my local shops have the vortex products I'm interested in. What I did notice is a magnifier doesn't offer good eye relief...

    The day has finally come for me to purchase a solid precision rifle. I've had my eye on the 700 SPS in .308 for a long time. Now I need to pick a scope, mount, and rings. I'm trying to keep my budget at around $600 for the three. PLEASE HELP ME! I'm in way over my head. Range will be 100-300...

    I thought this was a pretty good video Larry Vickers uploaded yesterday showing some Aimpoints that have been put through the ringer and STILL work. There's another thread about LPV's and alot of the same schools of thought can be applied here. THIS is why spending more on a quality optic is...

    Seems eotech knew about defects as far back as 2006 and failed to disclose this information. Now there is a class action lawsuit. http://legalnewsline.com/stories/510652369-eotech-sued-over-alleged-defects-in-combat-optical-sights Kinda ****es me off a company would put soldiers lives at...

    Hey, guys. Picked up a pair of Swarovski binoculars for $10 yesterday at a garage sale. I know almost nothing about optics but just picking these up and feeling how heavy they were let me know I was on to something. The "Made in Austria" writing confirmed it. Got home and realized one of the...

    I need a scope for the M&P15 (Sport,so with A1 front sight), purpose : precision shooting at 300 yards and more. It would be nice if it could be used at shorter distances as well like a red dot (see below). I know little about scopes, the search for the perfect scope is turning into a chore...

    I recently mounted a BSA 4x30 scope on the receiver cover scope mount on my SKS. After play time at the range I needed to remove the mount and all to clean the rifle. It doesn't keep zeroed that way. What are my best options for optics on the sks? Are there any scopes with decent enough eye...

    Hey folks, I've got an old Remington model 700 .308 that belonged to my dad. He bought it sometime in the late 70's and it was left to me when he passed. It currently has an old Tasco 3x9 on it which he mounted when he bought the rifle, the glass is actually pretty good on those older Tasco...

    Has anyone used or have any experience with the Halo series rang finder from Wild Game Innovations? i recently bought one real cheap, and was wondering how reliable, accurate and tough they are?

    Recommend a good 2.5x scope for the AR-15. I have an AR-15 that I am going to be using around the farm for wild hogs, coyotes,,, and the such. My longest shots are probably going to be around 100 - 125 yards, somewhere in that range. Price is a factor. So please no $500 scopes. Another...

    If this has been covered a hundred times, I have been dutiful to have missed it. I was sitting here at my desk just thinking up survival problems to solve, as is my nature, and that EMP thing popped up in my head again. What happens to the circuitry in the red dot sights? I had just finished...

    What do y'all think about adding an optics subsection to the firearm section? Or even a stand alone optics section with subsections that cover scopes, spotting scopes. Field glasses, telescopes, reflex sights, night vision, etc?

    Just ran across this one on amazon: Anyone have any experience with this? Wouldn't mind throwing this on my VEPR. From the description from Leupold: At the $229.99 price-point, and the fact that it's a Leupold and every review I've read has been glowing, could I possibly go wrong with...

    What's the going price of an Eotech 551 I have found one for $300. I really want to add an eotech to my AR. The 551 is new in box and is not a clone.

    i purchased a 1911 with a fiber optic sight. they work really well in daylight, quite bright. at night and low light, the fiber optic sight is less than desirable, i cannot see where the gun is pointing. so anyway, i replaced them with trijicon night sights. love them. oh yeah, the vise...
