Alright well as much as I loved the eye relief and the functionality of using my huge rifle scop on my M16A4 I'm switching roles from a DM to just a rifeman and am shedding the scope and bipod.
And I'm having a hell of a time trying to decide on what optic I should get to replace my scope on it. I'm looking for something more compact, however I still want something magnified, but I really would like for it to have a decent eye relief so that I can clearly see my shots, and up to a decent range (200+ feet)
So I'm basically looking for a magnified optic, and have been debating on whether or not to get a 4X32 ACOG replica, or a 4X SpecterDR that's already out.
I've heard that the eye relief on the 4X32 ACOG's are pretty small, and read that with the SpecterDR that it's pretty good.
I'm even open to getting something unmagnified like a Eotech and then buying a magnifier.
I'd like to hear what's worked for all of you and see what you would suggest. Thanks guys.
And I did research brands and what not I just don't know which optic would best suit me.
G&P MK23 - SMP G&P MK18 - STAR FNC x2 - Tokyo Marui MP5 - CA M24 - UTG M3 - Cybergun M&P 9
Eye relief on my SpecterDR is good enough. It's not the best, but it's better than some repro sights out there. I can't comment on zeroing it as I haven't done that yet thanks to replica issues. They're sexy though.
The eye relieve on my Made in Bay-jing ACOG 4x is not bad at all, actually, I find it better than the one on the G&P I once owned. Its reticle is some Leapers-type mildot shit, but it gets the job done quite well, and on a good M16, it turns your Death Star Planetkiller into something so precise, Vader could shave his balls with it, had he not had the lava-wax.
Lemme know next time we meet at a game, gunny, I'll let you take a look-see.
I actually came in this thread to tell you to get an ELCAN replica. They look sweet and are crazy effective. The one I looked through was GreatDestroyer's and I loved it. You'd have to PM him to see what brand that beast was.
