Beerman, I've got one very similar except I've got a military barrel. That's what my NVRS is for.

Mine has a removeable carry handle so I can pop it off and mount the Night Vision on. I was thinking of getting a red dot, reflex or something and maybe set it up to co-witness with the iron sight.

I am trying to configure everything for quick change over to any of the three sight systems.

For daytime fun, Any recommendations? Any insight is welcome. I have managed my finances very well but if I drop 500 dollars, I feel it. Not rich but secure at this point.
I just have to save for it is all.

Seriously guys, any advice is more than what I know in this area and is welcome to my knowledge toolbox.
I keep reading and trying to learn the technical aspect of these tactical sights.

I was thinking of just going with a good scope maybe.

Gunny, I have the swap sindrome I guess. I move one to the other and then back from where I started. I recently purchased 2 Bushnell 6x24x50 with adjustabel front octive. Wally World sales them, but i got mine from LGS at 139.99 each. Bushnell is not a Nikon and a Nikon is not a ACOG. The Bushnells do the job for waht I need ( here is my T/C Venture with one of them on it and my 100 ATR.). Great scopes, but not the greatest. For the money you will not go wrong if thats JMHO.

Gunny,

If you want something to put you on target fast I would recommend a red dot or halo. The red dot Aimpoint I have is great. You can leave the dot turned on and at the lowest setting the battery will last for years. In normal use I use it on the thired of about a dozen settings. This makes the dot bright enough in sunshine but not so big it covers your target. At the brightest setting you almost need sunglasses and it makes the dot so big its not very acccurate either.

The halo on my Eotech has a larger field of view and is easier to use but the battery life is about 24 hours at the normal brightness setting. It has the same issues with brightness and size as the red dot.

If you have a fast moving target and you need to get off some shots fast I would recommend either. There is no parallax issues at any distance and you don't have to line up front and rear sights. They are also 1:1 ratio and I use mine with both eyes open.

If you want a half inch group at 50 yards they aren't the sights for you. But if you want yotes that only allow you a one second shot then ya gotta get one.

" But if you want yotes that only allow you a one second shot " Yep that's what I'm wanting.
Sounds like it's worth the money to get an Aimpoint. Any particular model you recommend for our platform. (AR)

Thanks for the advice.

I like the Eotech more than the Aimpoint because the field of view is larger as is the eyepiece. Its much faster to get on target. Also look for one that takes AA or AAA batteries. They make sone that takes thin round batteries and you will need to have a dozen extras on hand. With the Aimpoint it doesn't matter which batteries because they last so long.

Kentuckysureshot,
In case you are still watching,
I think there are some pretty decent ones around for 250-300. I have been doing a lot of research on em. I may be in the market myself.
I'll post the results as soon as I get my act together.
I know how you feel, I don't want to spend 900 and up either.

On the other hand, if you come up with good info/prices and all related to this please share. It may help me.
I think we may have the same rifle.
