Hi guys, I've been an "iron site" guy all my life and know very little about optics of any sort. Anyway, I just got a Tavor and was thinking about putting some form of ACOG or something on it. Any suggestions????

Aimpoint PRO for moderate budget (around $500)

ACOG if you can afford one but they are heavy!

I was recently in the same boat. I was going to put a 4x or 1-4x but a friend suggested a 3-9x and I'm glad he did. That being said I will probably get an Aimpoint in the future (scope is on a quick mount) for closer in and faster shooting, which I don't do a lot of.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the input. I'll deffinatly check out the Aim point. I'm not to concerned about the price, after all, the gun cost me a small fortune so I can't exactly cheap out on the optics ;p. Lol!!!

I haven't shot my fathers yet. But I always was a fan of variable low power scopes. Hes running a Leupold. I think I hooked him on them because you got 1-1.5X so its like a reddot but you got 4x or if you want to reach out, You not limited on just a 1X DOT that may cover the target at 100. And you don't need run a piggy back system.

What's your plan for it? What ranges will you be shooting at? Hunting? Competition?
Answer to these will narrow down some choices.

This?
For a shot in the dark answer on a Tavor, I'd say 4x is nice, maybe a red dot and magnifier, or a 1-4 scope? If you were closer, I've got both on QD mounts to try out...if possible, try before you buy.

I kinda want something to shoot paper at my club which is an indoor 50y range and I do often. But also what something for when I do manage to get up north in the pits and shoot at 150+ yards. Just want a happy medium..:).

I've done a lot of homework and keep coming back to the Vortex Spitfire...:). Burris also has a nice unit.

Im was about say Vortex Sparc but the Spitfire is better. You also get the no hassle warranty with Vortex.

Funny you say that, all week I've been reading every thread on the site regarding optics. In-between checking out "whats new" on the site & what the GOC dealers have to offer & all the reviews on the web & Utube by other shooters, now my head is spinning ! So much to choose from ! I started out with the Iron sights, 6 months later added a Meprolite M21 w/QD, 6 months later added a 3x magnifier w/QD & used those for 2 years. They work great together, but, I need something better for coyotes at longer ranges or 3gun I think at the moment(I have to check out the guys at CHAS soon & see what they use). I'm leaning toward the Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50. I thought about an ACOG, but for the money, the Viper would give me more distance. I've moved the M21 onto the 45*rail which makes it fine for close range shooting now that I have the geissele trigger pack(cut my groups in half) & it makes the gun more fun. Burris you say ? Eliminator 3 is one of my options, though I am unsure. Possibly a Leupold. Maybe a Flir R series. Different situations = different optics. So many choices, What to buy ?
Whatever makes you happy, that's my philosophy.
Back to my homework,lol. Good luck in your search and decision.
