The clark custom Gator seems to me like a pretty good target AR-15. I was planning on getting one with a carbon fiber handguard , and a Bushnell Holosight. The gun's price at about 1600(with scope) is about the max of my price range.

Have one of the Gators. It is a great setup and they meet their stated 1/2. But why buy a accurate rifle and put a holosite on it?

Use holosite on some guns but you limit yourself to a more limited range and lose some of what you are buying the rifle for.
Just my thoughts but you wont be sorry if you buy gun.

Would have to agree with boohsdad. Why put a red dot sight on a heavy barreled target AR?

The Gator is for 3 gunning. I've watched Jim Clark shoot in the WC3gun and the man is simply amazing.

In our world the Gator with a Holosight makes perfect sense.

I agree the gator is good to go for 3 gun with a red dot, however the question referred to target rifle. That said, A scope would be the most likely sight.

the acog would be a far better sighting system.


if you shoot properly set up 3 gun matches often, you'll realize that red dot sights are at more of a disadvantage than iron sights are, because they're not as fine as irons, and provide none of the magnification scopes provide.

...because Jim Clark shows one on his website? ;)

I think the Holosite should be made in two sizes.
The older, larger version just looked better on some guns!:D
