How much can you spend? A good way of choosing a new AR-15 scope is finding a scope or sight suitable to the type of target you want to shoot. If you want to hit a prairie dog and 400 yards you’ll want a scope with high power magnification, adjustable focus, and super clear optics. Next, consider how far you need to shoot. A scope that will perform well at 100 yards may not work that well on a target 600 yards away. The size of the target and the distance you need to shoot are two critical factors in choosing a new AR-15 scope. Another important consideration is how critical it is that you make the shot. If lives are on the line, take for example a police sniper, the reliability of your scope needs to be much greater than for some one blasting beer cans on a hillside. It may not be worth buying a $1,400.00 Leupold sniper scope for general plinking. For SWAT or military duties, it’s worth every penny. That leads us to our last consideration; how much do you want to pay? Taking all other factors into consideration, you’re new AR-15 scope needs to fit your budget. We place this consideration last, because we believe the others are more important than money. You cannot put a price on human life. If you need to make a precision shot under difficult circumstances, the high end scopes are worth the money. For general shooting and plinking, there are a number of great scopes that will provide years of enjoyment without taking your entire paycheck. A new AR-15 scope is an investment. You’re investing in the reason you bought the AR-15 in the first place. The scope will help you get the most out of your AR-15.
