    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

    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.
