What optics for my 2 M4's?

I have 3 AR's. 2 M4's and an AR 10 set up as a Sniper type rifle. What I want is opinions on how to set up my 2 M4's on optics. I have a S&W and a Daniel Defense. As of now I have an Aimpoint Pro on my DD, and my Smith has a removable carry handle on it. I have a couple ideas that I'm pondering. One is to buy an Aimpoint Micro, and put it on my DD and slide the PRO unto the S&W. Then, however I would just have two M4's with red dots. My other thought is to get some type of 1x4 or 2x8 style variable scope to put on my smith, I like the Nikon AR series. The Smith rifle would be used for everthing from the range to hunting. I have about a 600 budget. I am at a real dilemma on what to put on it. Thoughts?

Can't go wrong with a Burris TAC30 or MTAC 1-4 in a Burris PERP QD mount.

If you want to hunt with one of the AR15s I would consider the 1-4x. Otherwise I would go with an 2MOA Micro.

I just recently bought a Nikon M223 2-8x and put it on a 20" build I completed a few weeks ago. Very clean, bright optics; I like it a lot. The M223 2-8x is under $400 which leaves plenty of room for the mount of your choice in your budget.

Since you already have a good red dot, I would go with a low power variable. I also recommend a one piece mount. Larue, ADM or Burris.

Leupold VX-II 2-7X in a LaRue LT104 on the S&W.

Keep the Aimpoint on the DD for more serious uses.

Nikon M-223 1-4 x 20. Love mine. I use the Nikon mount. At 1 power you can use it both eyes open and it is fast on target. If you need a little more precision then the option of 4x is great. If you get any Nikon scope I suggest you check out Nikon SponOn (if you also have a smart phone) or if you want use the software on their web site for free.

Love my ACOG and really liked the Aimpoint T-1 I use to have.

Go with a 30mm tube for a low power variable scope, the bigger tube does wonders for light gathering ability.

I really really like the Vortex Viper PST, it is incredibly sharp and clear.

If you don't want to spend $500 on the scope, take a look at the Weaver Classic Extreme 1.5-4.5x30mm. It has an iluminated reticle, and costs $280 from Natchezss.com who is the exclusive distributor.

Burris is nowhere near the quality level of ADM or LaRue.

I highly recommend the ADM, their QD mechanism doesn't mar your reciever like LaRue are known to.

Installed following the instructions i.e with more than 1/10th a degree of common sense, the LaRue does not mar the receiver.

Getting some lithium grease on your gun also does not constitue 'marring' either.
