    IMHO your new rifle is probably capable of some respectable accuracy and deserves better than that. I'm running an ACOG on my M4gery but my BRO AR has a Leupold VX3 4.5-14 which can be had for about $650 and will allow you to see those iddy bitty holes in the bullseye at 100 yards.

    I don't know much about the specific scope, but looks similar to the Millet DMS-1 I have one one of my ARs. The 1-4 range is good for closer in, shooting offhand, and run and gun sortof uses. Not as ideal for shooting tiny groups from the bench.

    Im kinda looking for more of a run and gun type of deal more than long range accuracy....if I could afford a trijicon at the moment believe me it would be on it.

    I put a Nikon P-223 3x32 BDC on my Sportical. Not the best for precision, long range work. But it has a clear, sharp sight picture.

    If I couldn't get an ACOG I would go with something similar to the bushnell. You may not believe it but the ACOG I have was had through a trade deal on a gun I had about $400 in so I pretty much stole it!

    I can't comment on the Bushnell but for 1-4x scopes a good option is the Millet DMS-1 mentioned above. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/186660/millett-tactical-dms-rifle-scope-30mm-tube-1-4x-24mm-illuminated-circle-dot-reticle-matte
    I have one on my Marlin .44mag lever action for deer hunting and like it a lot. The circle-dot reticle is fast and can be used for ranging. Doesn't have target turrets like the one in your pic appears to but don't think you need that anyway for your stated purposes.

    Wish I had 500 to spend on the burris cause I sure would...I probably should be patient and wait a month and buy the trijicon I want...so I think im gonna get the 260 dollar bushnell thst comes with mount and all and in the mean time try to find a good deal on a used trijicon. And then put the bushnell on my bushy e2s I picked up over the weekend also.

    I personally prefer the 2-7 for a "general use" AR, mine sports a VX-II 2-7x33. Something from Redfield could suit you well.

    Looks a lot like the Leatherwood CMR I have. So far I really like it. The turrets are a little to easy to turn, but otherwise it works good.

    Actually, I need to get it back out and test how it held up to the accident we were in on the way to the SE Shoot. The POA seem to have shifted, because I had it sighted in, and it was shooting high at Jerry's.
