Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knew of any acog like tactical scopes, except for cheaper? $1000 for a scope is just to excessive right now.

I would opt for a Burris 3x32 AR332 Tactical Sight for $319. Burris has a lifetime warranty.

Otherwise, look into a 1-4x or 1-5x rifle scope with a BDC subtension reticle. There are several models out there for under $1k, or under $500.

SWFA SS1-4x24 $799
Burris XTR 1-4x24 $699
Weaver Tactical 1-5x25 CIRT $659
Vortex Viper PST 1-4x24 $499
Leatherwood CMR 1-4x24 $329
Falcon Menace 1.5-5x30 $245
Millet 1-4x24 DMS $199

Keep in mind that you get what you pay for.

I stock both and the Burris doesn't work in all lighting conditions like Trijicon's ACOG.

If you still aren't sure what you need send me a line I can help you out, had my hands on a scope or two...

Like others have said, you pays your money, you takes your choice. If it's for a fun gun, it's OK. If it's for a serious no nonsense gun, go with the best you can get.

To be fair, experience has taught me that even ACOGs don't work in all lighting conditions. Twilight was always difficult with the TA01 I had on my DMR.
The BAC models have the best versatility, but they do have washout issues.

Still, they were eons better than the lesser optics on the market that many troops I worked with foolishly purchased and slapped on their rifles.

I bought one of these "Trophy Dot" scopes from Midway and it had good reviews. I've been reluctant to mount it on my AR since I give up my irons when I do. I'm keeping it for a later project.

acog like means something different than "looks like an acog" and paying for something as good as an ACOG will mean paying a lot more than something that looks like an ACOG.

I've spent enough money trying to save money to have paid for the thing I was trying to save money by not buying.

when people say you get what you pay for, i feel like that applies to a point...why drop a grand on an ACOG when you can have an awesome and reliable scope for half that, even a quarter of that
no doubt, ACOGs are the bomb, but for a $1000?, when most guns that people put them on cost half that?, not for me

I went through a couple of those looking for one with a level reticle for a .22 plinker.

I failed.

You do get what you pay for, usually. The ACOG is a fine battle scope. It really has no peers. The Elcan is nice, but costs the same, and it doesn't seem to be as stable as the ACOG concerning the mount. We used 'em on 240B's. The ACOG was good on the M4 to 600m, don't about the bullet once it got there though. I use one on an FAL now, the M4 gets the Trijicon reflex sight.

For cheap, you can get a Trilux. The Israeli ones that are going around, or were, are from M16's, not FAL's, and have mounts for such. Some have (and you can get) red illuminators for them, as the tritium lamps are long since gone. These things are small, 4x, military grade, but they have the stupid pointer reticle, looks like a sharpened pencil with an illuminated tip that points to the center.

For new low power scopes that are "tactical" some of the ones mentioned on here are okay. Good for plinkers and what not, but not for dragging through the mud or banging around on bad roads.

BTW, the "Super Sniper" scopes that SWFA has, the cheap ones, were pretty good a few years back. A friend used one on an M14 in Iraq. As long as they haven't changed, those are the only good cheap alternative I know of to the expensive scopes like US, Leupold, etc. Don't know how or where they are made, but they are light years ahead of say, ATN. Stay away from them whatever you do.

What is the scope for?

RRages.com has some great scopes; either the nice 1-4x scopes, or good ACOG clones (though they might be more for 22lr AR's).
