Lightweight optic...

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the suggestions fellas! Y'all have definitely swayed me to a different price bracket. I've nixed the cheaper Vortex and it's between the VX-3i and the AR mod1.

Don't really think I'll use the graduated turrets on the AR. Longest shot will likely be 100yds for this rifle. Like someone else said, don't complicate shttt with complicated shttt. Can't find where it list how much weight the fire dot would add...

I like the slightly higher magnification on the vx3i. Also the one piece main tube is something i wanted. 

The mount will be an Aero P ultralight. So total weight for optics will be around 12oz. Not too bad.

I would but I don't want to rely on a battery when it's time to go to work. Waitin' to see what goes sale this next week. This light weight build is making my wallet equally light weight. I aint gay or nothin, but $20 is $20.

Lol. just carry a few extra batteries, they are low cost and low weight. I used many many things in the military that used batteries, just bring extras. Besides we always had irons for backup.
