    I have a number of ARs, 1 w/Bushnell 4-12x50, 1 w/Aimpoint red dot, 1 w/Eotech. I have a 16" LaRue OBR .223 on order that is said to be a tack driver and recently looked at a 4x Trijicon ACOG that blew me away in the store. The dilemma is what to mount on the LaRue when it comes in (have backup order placed w/dealer friend who ordered long b4 I did). I read a review from a OBR owner saying he wished he had mounted the Trijicon 5-20x50. I read up on that scope and it has great features but I rarely shoot over 100 yds. (city captive). And - - I would like to mount iron sights as a backup but not sure you could see them thru a low mount ACOG. Yeah, I know. Get both optics w/LaRue's quick detach & return to zero on both. I really like the features on both of the Trij optics i.e. parallax adj on the 5-20x50 & drop marks on the ACOG. Hey, these toys ain't cheap! Any ideas or recommendations? :banghead:
