What will it primarily be used for?
Both of those are great choices.

I would get the patrol because of the reticle. Both are good.

I have a VXR-3x9 on a 30/30, don’t know if that helps.

VXR 2-7 firedot on my wife’s AR, glass is better than my Nixon 3-9. Great scope.

Have a 2-7x33 Firedot 4 on my AR. I like it.


Don’t roll those bloodshot eyes at me.

I never go beyond a 40mm objective lens in order to minimize the distance between the center line of the barrel and scope.

On an AR style rifle 3x beats 4x and 2x beats both of them.
