My AR normally has an Eotech 512 mounted on a quick detach mount. When time for thinning the hog population, I've got an vintage Redfield lo-pro Wideview 3-9 sitting in a quick detach mount on my AR. For about $150 you get a made in Denver scope with great glass and the wideview feature.

Running hogs and 'yotes stay in view due to the super-wide field of view offererd by the scope. I also like how the lo-pro keeps my AR system compact.

Low light shooting? I've got a vintage Kahles Super 6S2 that came on a Remington 700 ADL in .243. The Remmy action is being turned into a long range shooter. That 6x Kahles with it's 26mm tube is almost like having night vision. If I had the cash, it would go great on a suppressed .300 Whisper for a SERIOUS hog rig.

I love the vintage stuff. I just picked up a new-in-the-box vintage Kahles 3-9x42 scope. I have no use for it now, but it will be great trade material for future long range glass.

Don't discount the quality older stuff.
I'm not as think as you drunk I am.
