Scope for new AR-15 .....?
I recently bought an AR-15 with a detachable carry handle/sights with front sight post.
I may need to hit slow-moving targets up to 200 yards.
What would you recommend?
Keep the included A2 sights? Buy a 4-12x scope? Buy reflex-sights? Buy a red-dot?
What are the advantages to each? Approximate reasonable cost.
I borrowed a friend's 3-9x40mm scope; then bought a 3/4" riser. I removed the detachable handle; then replaced with riser and scope. The FIXED front-sight post is NOT visible either at 3x or 9x.
I'm keeping the handle (as backup sights) and buying a 3-9x40mm scope.
Seems to be the cheaper way to go than getting an optics-ready AR then buying MBUS.
