In Alaska, we hunt with mini-14s & ARs off snowmachines, works well with team slings in open country or on river. I've picked up a couple stagg 15s for my kids down the road and hoping my nephew (in military) can find me an something lying around. Boy I sure had access to all kinds of good stuff in early 70s when in Army myself. So now I want to put a scope on my Colt A2 that I bought for $440 in mid 80's (say it ain't so). I saw the Mark AR Leupolds in Cabelas; thought that might be a good one for hunting applications. What scopes do you all use for hunting with colt pre-bans? What is best mount? I kinda don't want to spend 800 bucks for an AR scope that will be on snowmachine more than not, getting banged around. That Leupold is like $340 I believe.
