I was thinking something HSLG that was compact and .308 recoil proff out to say 300 yards max. w/1x mag.or 2x @ most. Ya'Heard?:fire::evil:

Something like those.

Well I thought you meant you couldn't find a low magnification scope.

rino,

The rail is a Knight's Armament RAS rail system. I used to have one. They are ok, but have a few drawbacks as well. The biggest drawback is price. They go for 400 bucks not including the $100 optional clip guide mount that replaces the rear stripper clip guide for mounting of a traditional type scope.

Hard to go wrong with an EOTech, and you can mount it further forward without worrying about mounting the optic directly above the receiver. I personally like them more than AimPoints, though those work quite well too. Either one should be fine for shooting out to 300 unless you really need a magnified optic.

Small thread hijack...

With regard to the Knight's Armament RAS rail system as seen in the first pic...

1. Does the aimpoint cowitness with the irons?
2. If one does not want to add a traditional scope, can I assume that srtippers work as normal?
3. What were the other downsides? Looks like additional weights could be one...

PS MSRP looks to be 600 smackers nowadays.
