Recommendations for scope for ar for yotes


Recommended Posts

Have a ar im setting up for yotes. Looking to go with a 50mm obj. Not night vison but early am and late pm hunts. Been looking at Vortex, leupod, and night force. What do you guys have and what should i stay away from.

Thanks John

Night force is out of my price range. I have a variety of vortex scopes from $-$$$ and they make good glass. For the money though, I really think Leupold is the best bang for your buck. On my latest rifle build, I got a vx-3i 4.5-14x50 cds, and by far the best low-light glass that I own. Cant really explain it, but seems to gather much more light than my vortex’s. Moving forward, I cant see buying anything else but Leupold, and that says a lot considering I get 40% off vortex (wife was former active-duty).

Leupold stands behind their products 110%...... Had a pair of very old 10x40 binos that the eyepiece lens on one side got forced into the body of the binos, and they repaired it and repurged it for free..... don't even think I paid shipping on the return trip.

I own Tract, Leupold and NF.  You will have to be lucky to find a used NF at $500.  Not impossible, but not likely.  My Tract has been nice.  Good glass for the money, BUT I wasn't impressed with its high magnification clarity.  I find myself backing off a bit  for a better picture (sounds goofy, I know).  If you are going to set it and forget it, go with Leupold.  For $500, you can find some good used loopy deals.  Years ago, I had a Vortex PST, 4-16x50.  I would use my VX-3i to spot the holes in the paper when I couldn't see them with the Vortex.......sold the PST shortly thereafter as there were better options in that price range.  Take a look at Zeiss.  Should be able to get their Conquest line used at your price,
