Alright, since I began toying around with the idea of getting a long range rifle I started thinking, for now why not just get a scope for my AR? My ar is a flat top, and I have flip down sights on it, front and rear. I am looking for a decent scope... and when I say decent, I mean a low priced one that is still OK. I know it probably won't be a scope that I will always use, but it'd do for now. I plan on mainly using it for the 100-400 yard range. I would prefer to have mil-dot. Also would prefer it to at least abe a 40 mm objective on it too, probably 3-9x or maybe up to 12x. I plan on getting the quick detach scope rings so I can easily take it on and off and use it right away.

So, lets set a price range of $200 or less. I'd prefer it to be more around the $150 or less, but $200 would have to be my max. Again, this doesn't have to be some fancy sniper scope that is made to hold up to the harshest abuse you can throw at it. I just want it to hold me off for a while in some longer range shooting until I can afford a different gun.

Oh, by the way, I prefer one that has the tactical adjustment knobs, vs a scope that has the threaded on plastic covers that have to be removed to adjust it. So lets hear it, any suggestions?

What about barska scopes? Again, I'm not looking for the most awesome scope out there. I know good optics are well worth their money. But I was also told that there's no way I would be able to see mirage, and bullets hitting with my burris landmark spotting scope. Not only can I see that, but I could see either the bullet, or the shadow of the bullet zipping in on it's way to the target. Granted, it still did cost $220, but I was told by quite a few people that I'd need to spend at least twice that to be able to get results.

So, I was searching last night and found this.

I think I can look at it locally too. It's kind of more what I was looking for, and not going to shock me with sticker price either. Honestly, I will probably only use it once a month. I don't get out often to shoot my rifle. So I'm willing to bet that this would work for me, for now. Later on I will invest in something better, but something like this would hold me off for now.

Found this. Might be worth a pm to the guys:
