I'm up in the air over optics for this thing. It's actually lighter than my Remington so it'll be my primary carry on dawgie hunts. I'm thinking about pulling my Leupold VX-II 4-12X40 off my Remington and putting it on this and buying a higher power for the Remington.Or should I use something else for this? Throw out some ideas folks...

I put a Bushnell Browning 3-9x40 on mine and I really like it. (made to the same specs as a 3200 Elite). That Leupold would be a great fit for a Yote AR.

At this point it will be because it's a lighter gun than my Remington. I'd like to take it to Cedarville for squeek gettin' too... I wouldn't mind taking the Bushnell Legend (3-9X40) off my Marlin .22 (which has iron sights), but it's a legend scope...

That would work. The legends are nice and I think just a tad below the elites. I think I read that they are built in the PI which is good.

Well, a friend of mine talked me into a no questions asked "give it a shot" (no pun intended) try out on an NcSTAR. I've never heard of this scope but I'm gonna give it a shot. Anyone else heard of NcSTAR? They come with a lifetime warranty. My dealer told me that in over 3 years he's only sent 1 back and they just replaced it - no questions asked. Based out of L.A. area.Green illuminated reticle with rangefinder in 4-16X50 and a 30mm tube.

Well, I think they are generally lower quality optics.I have one an a Mosin Nagant M-38 and it has taken a beating so far with no problems. It's a 3-7 long eye relief scope. I hope it works out for you.

No. I posted a message in that other thread about the Mueller. My wife had bought me a scope for my birthday (which is next Wednesday) but I spoiled it because I bought this one. So she showed me the new Bushnell she bought me.I put it on the rifle and she doesn't like how it looks (says it doesn't match - I guess it doesn't but that's a woman fer ya) so we may be returning it and I'll get a leupold 3-9X40 in matte black I guess....

Nope - not at all. I went with a 4-12X40. Here she is in all her glory...Attached File  AR_leupold.jpg   130.66KB   31 downloads
