So I just bout an 18in larue Grendel. I am waiting some help on scopes...

I am leaning towards a 1-x scope

In
PST2 1-6
Razor 1-6
Smrs1-6.5

Out
Xtr 2 (34mm tube need 30)
Primary arms
Strike eagle

What other ones should I look at...

Most important factor is brightness. I will use this to hunt with

Read above post. No XTR2, he doesn't want 34mm.

Man the reading comprehension is weak in these threads lately.

I like Zeiss Duralyt. 1.2-5x

Incredible brightness and super clear view

I use a Schmidt 1-4 for lightweight hunting. Pretty basic but great for dawn/dusk. Swarovski would be another one to look at.

So after getting my hands on 1-6 I have decided that I want a bit more mag...

Thinking 3-18, 2-10 ish area now


Where did all the good glass 30mm scopes go? Seems like all the new ones are 34mm and weight a ton. I think vortex gen 2 razor 3-18 is 40+'ounces


The mark 6 at 28 looks nice...

I have not seen improvement in terms of light gathering
And clarity by going with 30 or 34 mm

I have all of them

Glass quality and quality coatings have the most impact

Go look at 1" Zeiss. Swavroski s&an etc. but ones with
Good coatings and glass

Post up pics of your larue. Im a little surprised they are on the grendel and blackout flavors but opted for 260 over 6.5 creedmoor.

I like Vortex and the Nightforce SHV line of scopes. Reasonably priced with plenty of features.

Thank you.


Maybe my biggest gun related pet peeve. That and referring to every gun as a "tack driver".

Even though I have shot lots of tacks I never refer to a gun as a tack driver, to me this is a tack driver
