IIRC, it weighs about 4oz less than the NF setup i was looking at.
i've run a 1-4x on my AR for nearly a decade and have never had an issue. 1.5-6x just made sense for me on the 17.
Riceaterslc, how are you liking your Elcan?
Everybody whines about the Elcan weight, but the 1.5x6 weighs 5 ounces more than your current rig with that magnifier. A dot sight plus magnifier usually comes in over 20 ounces compared with the 25.8 of the Elcan.
I enjoy mine; crystal clear optics, NV compatible and solidly built.
Not to go OT but does the Kahles 16 also feature FFP or just SFP?
Like you set up. Nice and simple.
What color is your Elcan? Is that the stock FDE color?

Personally I don't think it's worth it for the price and weight. There are variety of setup out there that are better suited for what civilian shooters use the rifle for. I run a March Tactical 1-10x and ADM mount that weight about the same as an Elcan 1.5-6x but 1k cheaper and more magnification. Can easily and reliably hit out to 600 yds, and maybe 1000 yds (I haven't tried with the 17s).
