Optics decision for .308 Battle Rifle......

Trying to keep weight down to about 11 pounds unloaded.........

Here's what I have so far-


Black Rifle Forum

- VLTOR EMod (Being replaced with MagPul CTR)
- Troy BUIS
- MagPul MIAD grip
- MagPul AFG2
- SureFire M300A w/ SR07 switch
- Vortex Flash Hider

I'll be right at or below 11 pounds if I go with a Trijicon TR24G.........the 1-4x is definitely something I like, however, I'm having a hell of a time trying to decide between the TR24G 1-4x24, or the TA11E-G 3.5x35 ACOG.

BAC works for me, so I'm thinking the TA11 ACOG should be decent up close, however, not sure what I wanna do yet.

I will say the TR24G w/ ADM Mount combo is $845 from Primary Arms, and the TA11E-G ACOG is $1148 shipped........so I'm looking at a $300 difference.

Thoughts? I don't plan on using this thing past 500 meters. I KNOW I can hit a man sized target at 500m with a 4x ACOG, so I don't think it'll be an issue with a 3.5x.

My concerns for the TR24G are durability, mainly. Anything with more moving parts is gonna be less reliable, IMHO.

This isn't meant to be a precision rifle...more so, something to offer me a little more range than my 14.5" 5.56 rifle w/ 4x ACOG.
