This may have been done years ago when we first created the forum, but newer people here now...

What's everyone's favorite defensive rifle optic?

Mirrors to reflect lasers? :th_thicon_lol:

Holographic or red dot likely.  Low power wide field scoped maybe?

Im still learning.

Eotec for me. Irons would be second, assuming its inside 100 yards. At night, eotec all the way. Big field of view, illuminated, and don't have to have a good check weld.

No other optic fans here, I see?...

Over the years, I have owned 2 Eotechs, 7 Mepro 21s, an Aimpoint Micro H1, the new Sig Romeo 8T I just got in, a Romeo 4 (hated that thing), a Trijicon Reflex sight (I forget the model #), and a Blackhawk 1.5-4x scope. Plus, I have a $70 Trudot sight on my son's 22 rifle.


My one experience in magnification showed me I prefer 1x optics...

What's everyone else here owned?

For general defense - Sig Romeo 5's on both my PC Carbines.

For longer situations - S&B PM II or IOR Recon

At Night - Resolute Night Vision

Just got a BSA  TW35RDG Tactical with a laser mounted on also.
Going to mount it on my AK and get it sited in this week I hope.

Yes sir. It takes a little time to get the two optics boresighted to each other but it is a nice setup, with a 2 second change from 1X to 6X, while keeping the red dot.
Next stop is the 100+ yard range.
