Building an AR and was going to get a Primary Arms SLx 1-8x24 FFP scope, but they are back ordered for the next couple months.

Anyone have recommendations for something similar?

I have a Burris RT6 that I like. It replaced a Vortex Strike Eagle. I like the Burris a lot more. If you’re looking to stay under $400 it’s one I would take a look at.

Ok, so where does one find a Burris RT6? I wouldn't mind trying one myself but can't find the sucker in stock anywhere at all...and don't trust the Academy inventory...I went to the stores that said they had one, they don't.

SWFA SS 1-4X or SS 1-6X

The ultimate ten feet to 400 yard AR rifle scopes.

(Unless you want to drop the coin for a Night Force NX8 1-8X)

I would just go 2nd Focal Plain. I have this scope and it like it a lot. Haven't had it long enough to recommend reliability but the reticle is very well though out and the glass is clear.

I have the Vortex Viper PST Gen2 1-6 and have been pretty happy with it. I dont really dial with this AR so the 1/5mil adjustments dont bother me all that much.
