i have a buddy who is planning on putting a medium powered scope on an 18" spr but also is looking at the dueck (sp?) buis at a 45 degree offset. i mentioned to him that i would go with a mini red dot like a T1 or sparc. ive never messed with this setup yet but even mentioning it to him has me wondering about doing the same on my next build. i am consolidating from a basic m4gery and a r700 bolt gun to one nice AR to be a good all around gun, from HD to hunting. i am debating using a 1-4x like i am now or going to something in the 2-10x range with an offset red dot. i was wondering if anyone here runs a setup like this on any of their rifles and what they use it for? pros and cons to the setup? i would also appreciate pics if possible.
