    So, I Broke down and having a gunsmith build me a very nice high end AR. Yet after the build cost of parts and such, I cant afford a Acog. He recommended the Burris AR-536 5x36 Prism Sight. Has anyone used one? You can also add on top of it a quick view reticle. Any advise or experience would be great.

    Yup have had one for several years on a AR. I really like it. No draw backs and it works GOOD without it being turned on. Wish it was 2 MOA as most of my shooting is at 100 yards with a 3" bull. At 5x it will show your hits on some targets.

    what length is your barrel, i am doing mine a bit different than the rest. have a melonite ares armor 16 inch barrel but might cut it down to 13.7 and putting a noveske d3 flaming pig on it so my 15 inch free float covers just the connection nut

    I have been eyeing a prismatic for a while but think the sigtac CP4 might be worth a look as well. It's a 4x not 5x but for nearly 1/3 the price I think I could live with that. I'm sure the Burris is nice and well made but think the Sig is as well.

    I went through a couple sighting systems on a 6.8spc chambered ar. this all ended with a burris Mtac that I really like as I hunt the rifle.
