    what scope/sight system do you prefer on an AR15? has anybody got any comments on the leupold-gilmore red dot scope? seems to be a good deal at $160 from cheaperthanddirt. also, what upper should i consider for the scope/sight.

    i am starting an AR 15 build and appreciate all the input.

    I have a Luepold/Gilmore. It is a good sturdy scope but I don't quite know what it is good for. 22 or pellet gun I guess. It has zero magnification which makes it useless for long range, I can actually see the target better with iron sights as there is not a red dot to cover it up at long range. I had mine on a handgun for around 50 shots, left it on and the battery went dead so I took it off.

    I would be willing to sell mine. It needs a battery and the screw on sunshade has a minor dent.

    Ignorance is a crime in 49 states. In the other one it is bliss.

    And, an OTAL laser.

    I am very happy with both. They have stood up to quite a bit of vibration, and rainy weather.
