Sorry...I posted this in the Contender handgun forum first without realizing there was one for rifles!
Finally got a forend to go with my Boyd's carbine buttstock (pepper laminate). I only have 1 carbine barrel right now...6.8 Rem.
Now that I have a good foreend, I need to get a scope mounted on the thing and get out shooting.
I have installed an SSK Lightweight base and rings on the barrel. It has 1" rings. Most of the scopes I have available are 30 mm, so I may need to use different rings.
If anyone can suggest which of the following scopes available in my inventory might be a good match for the 6.8 Rem Contender rifle:
Burris AR332 3x Illuminated compact
Vortex Crossfire II V-Brite 1-4x24 30mm
Bushnell AR Optics 3-12x40 1 inch
Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x20 Firedot
Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6x24 30mm
Vortex Viper PST 1-4x24 30mm
You might notice these are all kinda "tactical" scopes, but that's what I happen to have that isn't installed on anything right now.
I was thinking that a light, sleek, low-ish power variable would be good for this little rifle.
Looks nekkid without a scope or sights!
