I have just purchased a AR 15 Colt Sporter II and because of aging eyes must scope it for distance shooting. I am planning on using a see thru carry handle mount. I want a fairly compact scope of 1.5 x 5 power or possibly a 2 x 7 power scope of decent quality( no cheapie 49.95 ones). May I have some of your recommendations on just what to buy for use on an AR15,;) and any on line dealers you could possibly recommend also. Many thanks!

The best AR scopes out there are EoTech, Aimpoint, and Trijicon ACOG. I don't think the Aimpoint and EoTech have any magnification, but a magnifier is sold separately. I know the ACOG magnifies, but I am not sure of the magnification. The EoTech and Aimpoint are $350-500 depending on model plus the cost of the mount. The ACOGs are $800-1200 depending on model. You can check them out at www.code4lesales.com and a variety of other places. Also, Leupold has a sharp looking tactical scope (I think the Mark4 or something). I believe it is well over $1000.

I am currently waiting for my first AR to come in, but I researched scopes briefly and those are my top picks and what I remember off the top of my head. I'm sure other members can add to what I said. Good luck.

The lower power ones seem to be pretty good,but the higher power ones aren't hitting on too much in my opinion.Swfa can lead ya in the right dircetion,but check ebay for possible better deals.My best scopes deals have come off ebay,as much as I hate to admit it.

I forgot about SWFA. I bought a scope off of them too. They had great service and good prices. I highly recommend them.

You might look at an illuminated reticle scope from Burris like the first two shown on this page http://www.swfa.com/c-206-burris-lrs-electro-dot-rifle-scopes.aspx.
