Dayum, Dood!!Yeah I really really like my PA 2.5x32 CQB ACSS, it's like having a red dot with some magnification and hold overs. Believe it or not that is on my FAL. The FAL, even though some may not know, is not a tack driver. Lucky to get 2 MOA at 100. So the PA 2.5x32 is perfect for a battle rifle.
For most of my ARs, LPVO is all I have, I even have couple on my CETME C and L, all of them either 1-4x or 1-6x range some with BDC and some just mil dot. I like being able to use em as a true red dot both eyes open or turn up the magnification to reach out and touch someone. I still haven't mastered the 4x both eyes open, forget about the 6x ones lol. I have mostly SFP and one FFP. I guess if I had to pick something I don't like on the FFP is how the thickness changes on the reticle.
Yeah, I have a few red dot/holos too, some with 3X magnifiers. Still winds up being a low power optic however you look at it lol. The reticles are just better on the LPVO optics. Unless you are looking for super simple, aka red dot/magnifier combo. Have you thought about doing that? Like, lets say a good circle dot or T-dot with magnifier? That way you could get a true 1X flipping the magnifier to the side or have a 2 or 3 or 4x magnification (they get expensive after 3X).
As for my AKs I have, of course, Russian or Combloc optics. All in some kind of red dot form from chevron to T-dot to regular dot. They are built like tanks and add weight to an already heavy platform - but I like em lol.
I think I only have two high powered scopes. One on my L308 and one on my Marlin XS7 (Athlon and Bushnell respectively) and two mid power on my Marlin 336 and my Mosin, both of those are centerpoint.
Of course like many of you guys I have a few other types on some random firearms here and there and some that got replaced so they are back in their boxes...
You just vaulted to Top 5 status, with all these friggin Battle Rifle setups... I know you have a fuk-ton of AKs (like every model every made!) and a proper number of AR15s but multiples in CETME and FAL,
