Hello new to this forums and to the next step in my journey of learning about optics.  Well I've just got in my new AR platform the PWS MK-1 .223 round.  Application for possible competition shooting, range shooting and tactical CQB training.  Been to the range with it this week learning my iron sights with this new weapon and I love this gun.  Im interested in finding a perfect scope for this for my application but with my lack of knowledge and with friends of mine with similar platforms shooting mainly thru EOtechs they have very little knowledge on helping me pick out a scope.  I have a budget of roughly up to 1000$ if it is needed.  I want a scope accurate and clear to approx 400yrds.  I've read about Nikons 223 series and although less expensive as such scopes as swar, and ziess, would it be well worth it to get such a scope. Also next question is that I dont know what magnification to get up to I'm only guessing at a 4x12 zoom.  Any help or suggestions will be greatly welcomed.  Thank you ahead of time.Big Smile

This is all you need.  Don't bother looking farther.  Decide which of the two reticles you like best then if you want capped or exposed turrets.  Can be used on 1X (true 1X) just like an eotech but has the 4X which will give you precission when you need it.  It is by far the best 1-4 on the market today

Actually my preference is the Trijicon Compact ACOG TA442 for CQB but a lot of guys do run variable 1-4 scopes in competition and actual use. For use under 300 yds I dont see an advantage in tactical knobs but that changes when you get to longer distances so if you plan to shoot past 300 look strongly at the 3-9x42 Super Sniper.  (If I was going to go with a 1-4 Super Sniper I would pick the one with covered knobs so they dont get adjusted by accident)

Thanks for all your help I recently picked up a kit#3 exposed turrets T redicle package. After countless of hours in. Reading articles and testimonies and with you tube videos from this forum and snipershide.com it help clear my mind on how great this scope will be for my application.I did like the circle illum. Reticle a bit more but with the kit being package so nice it was to good to pass up. Also with the extra savings on my budget I am considering another scope for my rem. 700 possibly the 3x9 or fixed 10 hd. I'll keep you all updated and possible field report with I get my new swfa 1x4 in. Once again great forum and fantastic information on optics. Thank you
