    AR-15 1-4x scope

    I recently decided to go with a 1-4x for my bushy xm-15 and I really like the primary arms 1-4x for the price and from what I've heard, the reliability. What I would like to know is what experience anybody has had and if I should go for the deluxe extended mount ($59.99) or the standard ($19.99). Is the price really worth it?

    Any reasonable price you pay for optics and mounts will be worth it. It is another one of those "You get what you pay for". I went the route trying different scopes, red dots etc and finally settled on an Aimpoint PRO for my AR after several years.

    There is no magic "deal" on optics. If you don't want to spend some money for a quality optic then you are better off with iron sights.

    Just a FYI and you may already know this but... Primary Arms is releasing a new 1x6 scope this month. Might be worth waiting to grab one of those. Thats what I am doing.

    I think that completely depends on the purpose of the rifle. I don't see any reason to put a 2k nightforce on a plinking AR or a 10/22. I think that budget optics are fine for plinking/range/fun guns. Hard use guns? That's a different story.

    Primary Arms optics are well thought of as budget optics over at AR15.com.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Primary Arms seems to make a decent budget optic. I wouldn't hesitate to run one on a dedicated range gun. Vortex also has some quality gear and higher end line too like the RAZR 1-4 and 1-6.

    When it comes to mounts, I always recommend a one piece mount for the AR or similar type of rifle.

    I have no experience with this brand, but I would lean toward the deluxe extended. Most scope mount designs are not intended for the AR platform and will provide less than ideal height and eye relief with normal stock weld. If you have an integrated front post, it might even block your sight picture using normal rings.

    I put normal rings and a rail riser on my .223 rifle and was never pleased with it. The .308 is fitted with a single piece Burris mount (about $100); the fit is exponentially better.

    Just make sure you know what you are getting and if it will fit your rifle and shooting style.
