So, I'm thinking of getting into 3 gun competitions. I've been looking at 1-4 scopes and ran accross some 1-5 and 1-6 etc. I definetly want a true 1x and illuminated reticle. However, I'm having a tough time deciding. I've been browsing the boards "snipers hide" etc and getting varrying opinions. I'll probably get different opinions here too and thats fine. I would like to not have the amount of money into it that I would have to spend on say a nightforce. I've been looking at the burris xtr 1-4, the vortex pst 1-4, the weaver 1-5. I've seent the swarovski 1-6 and they look nice, but too much money for me. Also I've looked at SWFA 1-4. Keep in mind I haven't actually held any of these on my own. I can't find any around here. Just been researching them. So, if anybody has had any experience with these or have another good recommendation, let me know. Thanks.

1-4

Leupy even has a 1-8. I know a guy that has a vortex 1-4 and likes it. I have a Trijicon TR 24 G that I really like as well. It would work great for 3 gun. Check out the sales section on the hide. I picked up my Triji from a guy on there for about 600 and it was brand new.

I'm planning on using Larue mounts. I have them on a couple other rifles and love them.
