Got a link to the vx-6 for $900, Id jump on that deal! That's a decision for you to consider, you'll be able to shoot equally well or better with 6 power optics. The fc-3G doesn't really get me excited.I sorta wanted to stay brand loyal and get the nxs compact with FC-3G for some long range shots but i can get an illuminated vx6 for 900 bucks
can you give me some more info or evidence of this? not trying to call you out by any means but larue is a pretty reputable company so id like to know more about this1-6 is fine out to 200 yards. My 16 wears an Elcan 1-4 and I've shot coyotes at 300 yards no problem. An illuminated dot is money on moving targets. I would avoid Larue mounts on the SCAR unless you don't mind scratches on the underside of your rail.
personally I think anything over 10 power is just extra weight on a .223 carbine...but I do have a nightforce and have a serious hard-on for that company, the SHV is a badass scope for the money.
Agree, the nightforce SHV is on my little man's 308 pictured. The scope and the rifle get allot of abuse. It is 4-14 power but I was not planing to go with the nightforce scope until they released the SHV model, turret caps and the standard zoom ring is why I went with it. I did not want to drag through the woods the NXS with the exposed turrets. Somehow kids don't seem to care about it as much as I do :0) but it is holding up well.personally I think anything over 10 power is just extra weight on a .223 carbine...but I do have a nightforce and have a serious hard-on for that company, the SHV is a badass scope for the money.
