    Thank you. Just got my SCAR 17 in a few days ago and zero'd the iron sights. I was looking for an affordable scope for the 17. Looking at the 3-9 range, and I saw Burris had a nice 5x fixed sight. Any thoughts? I was considering the Barska scopes because of price but after looking into their quality I think not.

    Check Vortex first. Good glass for the price in the Viper PST line.

    EXAMPLE:

    Scope/Mount:
    Eotech XPS 2-2 Dual Dot site

    Specs:
    Product: XPS2 | L-3 EOTech Holographic Weapons Systems
    ■Single transverse 123 battery to reduce sight length
    ■Shortened base only requires at most 2 3/4 inch of rail space
    ■Battery cap and latch are eliminated and replaced with a simple O-ring, tethered cap; better sealing is achieved
    ■Average battery life at brightness level 12 is roughly 600 hours
    ■The XPS2 is not Night Vision compatible, for Night Vision compatibility see the XPS3 sights.


    Uses: Home defense, short yardage target shooting out to 100yds.

    Pro's:
    1.) Compact size
    2.) holds zero
    3.) Looks bad ass on my Scar
    4.) Multiple dots for different yardages
    5.) adjustable brightness
    6.) $338 after $50 rebate

    Con's:
    1.) reticle too large for anything past 100yds
    2.) battery cover skinned my knuckle
    3.) Magnifier is damn expensive

    Overall opinion:
    I really like the looks and functionality of this site. It keeps zero when I take it off and put it back on after using my Long distance scopes. It really looks great on my Black Scar 16. The battery should last me as long as I need or own this. I would definately buy this again.


    Pictures:

    On the EoTech. I ahve one on my AR15 SBR witrh nthe magnifier. I run the ACOG TA11J on my SCAR 16s SBR. thaat's the combo that works for me on both rifles..and I can switch em if I want with the quick release mounts!

    I like it just wished it was the 24mm not 32mm. I really wanted a 2.5-10x24 mil dot but had no luck finding one. If somebody has one they want to trade I'm right here
