AR-15 Rifle Scopes:
AR-15 shooters typically look for scopes of a tactical nature. These scopes will often have exposed turrets for easy windage and elevation adjustments. Another desired feature is a bullet drop compensator calibrated for the 5.56 Nato round and occasionally 7.62 Nato for AR-10's. A matte or camo finish is also desirable. These scopes will be fixed magnification, low magnification variable and high magnification just like hunting scopes. Common magnifications will be 3x or 4x fixed, 1x-4x variable, 4x-14x variable. Long range target shooters may opt for benchrest or varmint scopes of fixed or variable magnification.
Mounting: Many of the low powered, typically 1x-4x variable scopes will include a mount for either carry handle or flattop mounting. Larger and higher powered scopes will typically be mounted with either a quick detach mount or rings enabling the shooter to swap optics in seconds without a loss of zero.
