Hello Everyone, Since 9/11 the number of optical sights being used on long guns by police, military, and civilians has grown exponentially. Many of these optics have taken the form of a red dot sight like an Aimpoint while others use a low powered scope such as the ACOG 3.5X or the Leupold CQT 1-3X. Currently I am having a full size AR-10 (20" barrel) built to my specifications by my gunsmith and have been looking for a general purpose optic to match the general purpose nature of this rifle. As I am not a huge fan of quick detatchable mounts I would prefer a single optic to do everything from CQB to long range work. How great do you feel the power of an optic be before it becomes a hindrence in CQB encounters? Based on my experiments, I feel that 2x to 2 1/2X is the upper limit based on some work I did with a rare magnified Aimpoint at 2x and a Leupold Scout Scope at 2 1/2X. As a result I am considering a new scope from IOR that runs its power from 2-12X. http://www.valdada.com/vn/ior/03r Does anyone have any experience with this scope or other IOR products? If yes, how did they perform for you compared to Aimpoint and Leupold? Are there any additional scopes out there you might suggest I look at? Thank you for your input.
