There are almost endless options for optics to mount on your new AR15! From variable powered scopes to red dots the choices are vast. Here are a few suggestions to consider when it comes time to get new glass for your rifle.

Red Dots

Red dots are simple to use and make target acquisition short work. They can be run with both eyes open and are general small and light. Here are a few to consider. First is the Trijicon MRO with its 2MOA dot. Hearty and well made, this is a solid choice. Next up is the Aimpoint Micro T-2. Aimpoint is a leader in red dot optics and the T-2 is one of the best they offer! One last red dot to consider is the Romeo 5 from Sig. Well-made and priced to accommodate a more sensitive wallet.

Magnified Optics

For ARs, a relatively low powered variable scope can enhance your ability to reach out a bit more. The Vortex 1-6x Strike Eagle is a good choice that has a mix of performance and good pricing! One other in this category is the Bushnell Elite Tactical 1-6.5x. Like the Vortex it will provide you with great performance without breaking the bank!

There are dozens of choices for good AR centered optics today. I encourage you to research and decide which style fits your needs the best, then start shopping!
