Hey everybody! I just bought a Sig556 rifle, and I am planning to mount a variable low-power scope to it, using tall ARMS rings. I am having a hard time deciding exactly what to mount, though. This scope needs to be durable, be simple to operate, retain zero, have decent glass, and cost less than $550 delivered.

I am looking at these scopes:

Anybody have any suggestions for what I am looking for?

No opinions about the scope, but I found that my SIG 556 didn't require especially tall rings. I think that they were medium height Warnes. Definitely much lower than the ones required for an AR-15.

I ordered the scope rings based on the height of the rear sight. Worst case I'll swap it out for medium rings

Millett DMS-1?

The links you provided didn't work me for, so I'm not sure what you're looking at options wise.

You'll want lower optic center height than an AR-15.
