My top 5 1-6x scopes: The Vortex Strike Eagle, The Leupold VX6 FireDot BDC, The Vortex Razor HD Gen II, The Kahles K16i SM1, and The Swarovski Z6i BRT-I. Some qualifiers: Must be Second Focal Plane as First Focal Plane isn't useful except at higher magnifications, IMO. Must have covered turrets since they protect your zero better and you shouldn't need to dial for elevation when you can just use the faster BDC/MIL drops. More scope-specific details: 1. Vortex Strike Eagle - The Primary Arms 1-6X ACSS is essentially the same scope so choose whichever reticle you like best. Personally, I preferred the ACSS reticle but I leaned Vortex due to their warranty and CS. 2. Leupold VX-6 - Due to the clunky illum knob, I'd suggest setting your max brightness indoors (i.e. blinks 5 times at max) and then letting the sleep and wake sensor do its magic. That way, you won't have to adjust in bright sunlight as it's hard to see in those conditions. Another consideration at the same price level is the Trijicon TR25. I prefer the VX-6's BDC drops as I found the TR25's MIL and MOA Dot drops were too widely spaced apart. Also, the VX-6 is 5 ounces lighter, however, the TR25 has slightly better daylight illumination. VX6 UPDATE: I've since switched my illumination from green to red through Leupold CS. The brightness remains the same but the red now makes it easier to see in daylight. I'd recommend anyone purchasing the FireDot BDC to do the same. 3. Vortex Razor - If you have an early model with the stiff zoom lever, contact Vortex to loosen the zoom lever or ask them for DIY instructions. 4. Kahles K16i - Having shot the Burris XTRII 1-5x with the CQ MIL reticle, I know how something like the SM1 reticle with half mils can feel cluttered when shooting at distance. The G4B crosshair reticle may be a better choice. 5. Swarovski Z6i - This was a Gen 1 model. The current model is Gen 2, which has a reinforced zoom lever and a new sleep/wake sensor. Other than that, they are essentially the same scopes. For 1X testing, paper targets ranged from 5-20 yards. For 6X testing, 10" MGM flash targets ranged at 200, 300 and 400 yards. All BDC drops were generated from Strelok Pro using 55gr with BC of .243 going 3000fps. These videos could not be produced without the invaluable help of Max.

Many thanks for watching and wishing everyone the best. See you guys on the range!

This video is late. Like 5 years late. Despite its age, the TR24 can still be described as the best general purpose scope available for the AR platform. Lightweight, rugged and excellent battery-free illumination in a $750 package. ATTRIBS: Overcome by Neumann Films Hip Hop Beat Strange by Pond5 Excitement Buildup Tension (Loop) by maartenbonder

That is a great thing as a consumer. Vortex has a pretty nice offering in their Razor HD Gen II-E 1-6x24 scope. It offers a lot of flexibility in a low power variable optic. At 1x you can get some fast shots up close, mimicking a red dot. Especially with it's daylight bright dot. Or, crank it up to 6x and you can reach out to identify targets or get those consistent hits at range. While there is no perfect solution, the Vortex Razor HD Gen-II E 1-6 does a pretty solid job, marrying up the features of a red dot and a magnified optic. It was challenging for me at times during the NightFighter 101 course by Viking Tactics, but it is totally usable, even under less than ideal conditions. #kitbadger #guns #shooting
