Recently bought a 17 and am now debating optics, I've found a pretty decent deal on the 6X ACOG....any drawbacks to these other than weight?
Just think about the kind of shooting you want to do. My wife likes to compete in heavy metal. She uses the 4x for shots +100 yards out and the 2 moa red dot for closer. I run a trijicon 3x-9x when hunting in mostly open terrain where the shots will generally be 100-220 yards out or a aimpoint compm4 with a magnifier on a swivel mount when I'm hunting in heavy brush or 'broken' terrain where something can pop up and start running.Never seen one mounted before, I think I'll consider something else....thanks guys.
I prefer Atlas, but there's nothing "newb" about a Harris bipod. It's pretty much accepted as the standard in bipods.
