    Just joined the forums and wanted to show off a few mods I've made to it so far. I'm interested if anyone has changed the muzzle brake? Any suggestions would be appreciated. As well as any suggestions for an optic in the 100-150 range

    Welcome to RugerTalk! :welcome:


    That's a good looking AR you've got there.

    What type of optic do you want? Red dot? Scope?

    I agree, couldn't beat the 479$ tag I got it for. Awesome value.

    A 1 x 6 x ? would be a nice match for that rifle.

    Nikon has a fixed 3x scope made specifically for the AR platform. It would fit the bill. Also any of the 1-4x or 1-6x variables would be great. I have a 1-4x Bushnell on mine. I like it quite a bit.

    Is the Nikon with BDC ? I've seen them and have wondered how useful/accurate the BDC scopes are

    My 3x did not have BDC. I'm not sure if its available with it or not.

    I've got a Nikon Prostaff on my 8mm Mauser and the BDC on it is fairly accurate with 196gn sp. It shoots about an inch lower than the scope shows at 200 yds.
