    If I get to build the .300 Blackout AR pistol I hope to build this winter, I'd prefer a traditional crosshair type optic as opposed to a red dot as on my 5.56 pistol. A cheek type hold with a pistol forearm brace is expected mostly, with padded rests at times. This shall be a range gun for precision shots out to about 100 yards at paper and such. Not hunting.
    I've read several articles supposedly listing the best long/extended eye relief scopes, and only a couple I found reviewed are in my price range. A Nikon comes to mind in particular. But there are many newer brands on the market I'm not familiar with. I'd appreciate guidance here as to a few more low power scopes that might be appropriate for what I have in mind right now.
    Thanks as always. Don

    Having had similiar scopes on airguns and .22 rifles, I CANNOT recommend it for ANY purpose, ESPECIALLY the one you describe. You WILL NOT be making "precision shots" at 100 yards with a centerfire AR pistol with this scope. It WILL NOT withstand the recoil of anything more severe than a .22. I mean, you posted that as a joke, right??

    Honestly Davek1977 yes I posted it tongue in cheek. I've posted many questions about my new AR pistol build with many very helpful responses. Completely new to this type gun, I found an interest also in a true scope rather than the popular red dot on another planned build. A bit worn out in my search and having no voices of experience offering suggestions until your response,, I followed up with an outlandish non-person of the gun comment.
    I realize there's there's an issue with eye relief in an AR pistol scope dependent upon the hold used. I was hoping for some direction as to a line of scopes perhaps with a forgiving eye relief range allowing different holds (be it a shotgun scope, scout scope AR specific scope, a scope made more for .22 caliber rifles or some other style I'm unaware of).
    Thanks for taking a moment to offer some insight. Don.
