    I agree with you that a "gun should be outfitted for the task at hand," however, my first post was in response to your opening generic statement that scopes are worthless on "battle" rifles.

    I'm not going to assume the purpose of which the thread starter is going to use his rifle; however you are probably right about not going to use his rifle for hunting...and I agree that a magnified optic would not be the best in a home defense situation that most private citizens would find themselves in. Irons (with perhaps a tritium front), followed with an EOTECH or possibly Aimpoint would work best. They would also work best in most LE situations, but then again my agency doesn't issue ARs and I'm not in the habit of engaging armed offenders at extended distances.

    I have an Eotech on mine and plan on buying a low power scope as well. For general self defense purposes or SHTF I would use the Eotech, BUT at the range when I am paper target shooting (for the sake of killing paper, not "training"), I like the idea of having a low power scope to help my less than perfect eyesight. Generally I can shoot out to 100 yards accurately but if I want to go further just for fun, the Eotech is not much help. The ideal setup is pretty much dictated by the individual and how/what he is shooting at the moment. Nobody is ever always right. Especially for someone else....

    I have an Aimpoint M3 (2 MOA) on my personal AR.

    I think the biggest problem with these types of "CQB" sights is that many folks immediately purchase and mount them and neglect to "get to know" their iron sights.

    Aimpoint type optic on my AR too. Optional irons can be flipped up fast though. (and yes I know how to use irons)

    I've always thought the Leupold Mark 4 CQ/T would be a pretty good all 'round scope. But, IIRC, the thing costs more than the AR.

    The Leupold Mark 4 CQ/T is pretty neat, but I dont think its worth the money.

    Yep, that's pretty much why I don't have one.
