    Help me choose a sub $1000 AR15 scope.

    Here's what I need:

    At least 8x max magnification, nothing past 12x.

    Between a 30-45mm objective lens. Nothing too big.

    Would prefer illuminated reticle.

    Would prefer tactical style windage & elevation knobs.

    Below $1000, which rules out the 2 I want most, the Nightforce NSX Compact Series & the Leupold Mark 4 MR/T series scopes.

    I've been looking at Vortex & the Leupold Mark AR Mod 1 scopes, they seem to have what I want, but I'm just wondering if anything out there is comparable or better for the money.

    So far the top contender is this Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10x44

    That's not bad but I would go for the redfield battle zone scope. Half the price BDC turrets for the 223 and mildot other wise on par with that scope. Only thing is it's not illuminated.

    I'm looking at Nikon, and wondering why any model with exposed turrents also has to have a BDC reticle.
