There is a difference between properly mounting a rifle scope to your long gun and properly mounting a scope for the shooter. While one ensures the optic is secure, the other adds the additional factor of ensuring the shooter may obtain a comfortable, repeatable mount for increased accuracy. Few of us shoot to miss, so let’s look at how to do it right the first time without the frustration and wasted ammunition when we sight it in.
A new AR is essentially a blank slate. If you want it for tactical use, a light, laser, and red dot sight may be in your future. If your AR is destined for varmints or deer, elk, or antelope, a sling, bipod, and scope will be standard fare. Maybe your new AR will reach out to targets on the 1,000 line with a premium scope and benchrest accessories. Whatever your next AR is destined to be, the right accessories define the Modern Sporting Rifle.
If there is anything I have learned in 40 years of shooting, it is if you buy cheap, you buy twice. When it comes to optics many that are OK for informal target practice and others are suited to some forms of competition. However, if you need a quality holographic sight for critical use, few if any, have stood the test of time as the EOTech sight has.
