View Full Version : Scoping an M4gery?
I have a standard m4 setup like this (http://www.stagarms.com/product_info.php?cPath=13_22&products_id=206) one and am trying to figure out what kind of optic to do. I was thinking of possibly going with some type of 2x7 scope but then realized that the front sight might get in the way. What is everyones experience with this. Does the front sight get in the way? What are the ways around it?
I suppose it depends on what time of shooting you do. You my be fine with a red dot scope (no magnification). With a proper mount, you will "co-witness" the front sight, an that will not be a problem. The second most common option would be a fixed power scope like an ACOG, usually in 3x or 4x. The front sight may be a slight blur in the bottom of your field of view, but it doesn't bother most people. If it is a big worry, you ca always have the front sight post shaved down, add a rail and a flip up sight. I suggest saving for a quality scope with a quality mount. Maybe try some out if you can, to see what you like.
i would suggest, a 1-4x variable.

i recently got my eyes on a burris xtr-14 (which is the same concept 1-4x) and wow. on the 1x magnification both eyes open, it was quick to acquire targets and really easy on the eyes. the variable magnification will give you alot of versatility as well.
the primary arms is the same deal only MUCH more affordable. i have no experience with that particular scope but i know marshall and primary arms in general is GTG and fantastic people and service, and i have heard NOTHING but good reviews on their products.
