I do not have a 20s, but aI think a 3-18 or 4-16 with a tree reticle and ring cap mini RDS would go very well on a rifle like this.
Yes. I think an ATACR 1-8x would also be a good choice. First, if you have never gotten behind the new NF 1-8x, you need to. I think everyone needs this scope. Goes nicely with the Scar. Point and shoot like and Aimpoint, and the ability to dial-in to 8x. You say that 8x is not enough? Yeah, I like 15x just fine, but our snipers shot with 8x, 9x and 10x on the Mk11 and Mk12 platforms. 8x is plenty to 600-800 yards, if you scope is as clear as the ATACR.
Want more, go for ATACR 4-16, or the S&B US 3-20x. Cannot afford NF or S&B? Come on, you just spent $4k on a rifle.
(btw, I have two Scar 20's looking for a good home.)
I have the nx8, so not the exact same thing as the ATACR, but my one big issue with it is, getting past 300 or so, that center dot is really big. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the NX8 and ATACR reticle the same outside the tree in the ATACR?
I love that scope, but I wish they would make that center dot smaller. The hashes around the dot are plenty to make the "red dot" effect on 1x.
Have a buddy of mine who's kid is in the Ranger Batt, and he showed me a pic of him in Afghanistan. Mk20 , with a Luepold MK5.
NF 4-16 or NF 3-15 F1.
That rifle deserves an optic as tough as it is itself. And also, an 11# rifle deserves more than an 8x optic. Anybody recommending a 8x optic (or 10x for that matter) is downright stupid.
That’s a very silly thing to say unless you’ve been behind one. I am SUPER comfortable using my ATACR 1-8 out to 800 yds, and last Friday, was hitting at 1000 yds with my KAC ACC and my 1-8.
You can say “for me that doesn’t work...” but to imply that guys who are doing it, and making the hits, vs talking about it on the computer are “stupid “ is bad taste man. Cmon, The Hide is better than that.
That said however, I just recently picked up a 5-25 ATACR F1 with T3 reticle that I might try out on this rifle. It's a sweet shooter and very capable at distance so the extra mag will be handy.
I need to get a 1.5-6x for a 17 too but I probably won't see that rifle for another 3-4 months... And god only knows how long it'll be before I can get the FA762SS suppressor for the '20 but the Form 4 has finally been submitted and ATF billed me already so just wait... That's all I seem to be doing with shit backordered into spring or later. Wanna SBR a SCAR 17 w/13" bbl. but the damn rifle won't be here until April probably. And I'd like to score a 5.56 SCAR as soon as those come back out (according to FN, US made ones are coming in spring too). What a year already.
Nice rig. And I AM coming down there one day, just can't say when at the moment. I'll bring toys. But if you wanna blast shit with the M2HB you're gonna have to come up here (lots of members up here too, maybe we can have a 'Hide party on some BLM land when this covid shit is over!).
You ought hold off on some new optics... There seems to be like a lot of NEW shit coming down the pipe... ATACR II, PM III, new models across the board.
So I ordered both of those scopes, the 4-16 for either an SR25 or Mk20. Probably the Mk20, always wanted a PM2 or Hensoldt for the '25. I scored a fixed ADM Delta mount with offset cap in FDE for it, I think I'd like to put a mini red dot on it. It looks ideal on paper, we'll see. It sure is a common application though.
I also ordered a 5-25 ATACR, same as yours --both of these in fact have the Tremor3. But I got the 5-25 for an MRAD in a Condition One mount, I feel it's too big, too much for a '20 but that's me.
After $43,000 bux @TheHorta 's wife left him, parents disowned him, kids spurn him, wang failed him, and he ran out of dough at the tripod/ballhead stage.Liar!!!
