When choosing accessories for an AK, optics seldom top the list. In fact, for most, optics are not even on the list. However, that does not mean that optic cannot or should not top an AK. For those who want a bit of glass on their AK, Bushnell has the optic built specifically for the task. Read the full review from the NRA.

A good long-range rifle is a wonderful tool, but its capabilities are only as good as the scope that sits on top of it. This fall, my shooting partner and I had the chance to test the Savage model 10 BA Stealth chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. Bushnell loaned us its Elite Tactical LRS 6-24x 50mm scope, so we could see what we were shooting at—and actually make hits.
When selecting a compact reflex sight, there are a few “must have” features: low profile so you can co-witness the iron sights, lightweight, and fast, close-quarter acquisition to shoot with both eyes open.

Smart shooters know that less is often more when it comes to dialing magnification on a riflescope.

According to the U.S. Army Laboratory Command (Small Arms Technology Assessment: Individual Infantryman’s Weapon, Volume I, March 1990 to be specific), 98% of all targets across all terrain are engaged at less than 600 meters, 90% less than 400 meters, and in urban terrain, 90% less than 50 meters. With this in mind, we need the ability to be able to reach targets beyond the 15-25 yard lines, but it is unlikely we will ever shoot beyond 600 meters in a defensive or even hunting situation.
When it comes to selecting an optic for your boomstick, there are so many quality options that many simply throw a dart at a list, ask a friend, or buy whatever is cheapest. TruGlo would instead
