    I'm building an ar platform in .450 bushmaster and am looking for a decent 1-4 scope to put on it that's not overly expensive but not crap either. What suggestions do you guys have ?

    What are you using it for? For pistol distances out to 100-200 yards?

    If you want to use it for CQB type use, then the optic must have close to zero magnification at its lowest setting. Mandatory when shooting with both eyes open.

    Vortex Strike Eagle fits your bill...don't think I can recommend anything less in quality.

    Generally, the more you spend the better quality of the glass...the actual glass. Clear, light enhancing etc., apart from the other features, the glass quality is paramount.

    What's your price range?

    titsonritz posted a good possibility. I was going to suggest the one I use, but it's a bit spendy...Trijicon Accu-Power 1-4×24

    I'm going to go full crazy and spring for a Nightforce NXS 1-8x24, so that's relative.

    I have an Accupower 1-4 on my .375 H&H. It can certainly handle the recoil.
    Maybe consider the Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4. I like the green illuminated dot. Goes for about $400-$450

    Maybe not too late to help with your selection. Is the .450 Bushmaster considered a high recoil platform? We have an 8 year old Leopold 1x4x20 standard duplex cross hair semi compact dangerous game scope. About 9.5 inches long. Extremely tough. It has gone from gun to gun with good results. Very high quality. Both up and down and side to side adjustment ranges have been worked to the max. No problem. I personally recommend this nice conventional scope.

    The down side is that it is very expensive at about $500 bucks shipped. Optics Planet. Right now it is on our summer garden monster slayer , (dinky ones) short barrel suppressed Ruger 10-22. Works very good in half moon light at 1X. A fairly forgiving eye relief. It gets swapped to and from Betty Bucker and Maxine Max Blast which are our Saiga 12 shotgun and Saiga 7.62x51 rifle. All Oregon State Laws, US Code Laws, NFA Laws, And BATFE Rules And Regulations Apply.

    You go from a wanting 1-4 to a 3-9?

    What does that even mean and how does it apply in his context?

    Yeah , I didn't think I really wanted to go higher magnification until I took a look at the 3x9 and it just seemed like a good fit.....

    Because it is important to bore the forum members by legally stating that since I mentioned a short barrel suppressed Ruger 10-22 as our garden monster, (dinky) killers for our summer garden protection it is best to let everybody know we possess the Ruger and that all the applicable laws and rules are followed.
