I’ve scored some smokin’ deals from EuroOptics of late - check out their demo deals ...

https://www.eurooptic.com/vortex-use...sh-scopes.aspx

This Vortex Crossfire is the one I picked up earlier this week (ordered it Sunday had it in hand Wed!): https://www.eurooptic.com/Vortex-Cro...CF2-31037.aspx


(“Crossfire,” haha, can’t wait til the first time I do errantly crossfire on the target of an adjacent shooter in one of our local matches; I’m just gonna point to the model name on the scope and smile ...!)


ETA: There ARE a lot of online storefronts that are obviously associated with each other but no way BattleHawkArmory.com is associated with locked and loaded (I believe L&L is a mirror of Tombstone, though.)

I’ve blown over $35k online in just the last 4 weeks alone and I can honestly say this:

BattleHawkArmory.com positively rocks in EVERY way; prices, availability, checkout, shipping, commos, etc. ; and,

Locked and Loaded positively SVCKS beyond belief or reality! (Their checkout system was so dysfunctional I wound up on the phone with a chimp who tried to explain $78 in s&h on a dozen or so mags by blabbering about their having to draw from “nine different warehouses.” GMAFB. Didn’t matter as their checkout system is broken. Anyhoo, Thumbs up to any who’ve had success with them but, based on my experience just last week, I would AVOID Locked and Loaded!

I did end up ordering the VSE 1-8x24 with the 30mm cantilever mount for 399 from OpticsPlanet, I hope it will work well on this ar-10 since it seems to be tweaked for 556 instead of 308 if I am reading the specs right.

Thank slsc98!

Sounds like a solid pick - looking forward to your thoughts on it after getting it out on the range.

Thanks Seagrave1963! Did you see my questions about the magpul flip up sights and how to protect scope when cleaning rifle? I would really appreciate some direction here.

You folks know more, and know about more that's out there, what would you recommend? Thanks everybody for any help you can give me.
IMHO, this is a no brainer for you...

I have a Swampfox Arrowhead LPVO 1-10 Green BDC on a 308 AR. I really like it for the money. Have not had a chance to put enough rounds through it for a long term review....but so far I really like the reticle.

If the Arrowhead series is out of budget...my buddy has the Tomahawk LPVO Series and he is happy as well.

swampfox has an awesome leo/military discount program, if you qualify for that.
