Hey everyone. I am looking at a couple of scopes for a tac rifle match. It has ranges from close quarter and out to 200 yards on 6 inch plates.
I ran a red dot (Vortex Spitfire 1x). Time out of the 200 yard stage. So I am looking for a low power variable optic.
My choices so far are:
1. Swarovski 1-6 BRT (used around $1600)
2. Leupold Mark 6 1-6 (new around $1800)
3. Nightforce NX8 (new $1700) or the ATACR 1-8 (new $2700)
4. Vortex Razor GEN 2 E (1200)
5. Any Other?
I would like to keep it relatively light for maneuverability on the close stuff, but want to reach out to 300-400. Vortex and ATACR (price is hight) is heavy so leaning away from them. But can't denied the lower cost of the Vortex. I also like the eye relief of the Vortex. I have not handle the Leupold. I like the Swarovski for the weight and clarity. My eyes are getting old. I am 47 and 160 lbs. Thus weight is somewhat of a concern. Rifle is a mostly JP. I've switch out the handguard to BCM for weight concerns. Rifle is sitting just under 7 pounds with the Spitfire. I would like to stay under $2000.
What are the opinions and why. Also some other options.
