    I have a tough decision to make. I have been wanting to finally grab a high end scope to make my AR a bit more accurate. I run a trijicon reflex with triangle retical on an A.R.MS qd mount, I was thinking have another qd mount with a magnified optic for longer range/precision. I have a good buddy at Leupold so there's no confusion there. My question is, just grab a Mark AR 14 power or get the holy grail Mark 4 HAMR 4 power and call it good. Is 4 power with amazing glass worth it?

    Holy grail, buy it once and then forget the expense. My 2 cents! Gary

    I had both, at one point. Sold the Mark AR and now have a HAMR on it. It's great. I really like it. But IF you want the real holy grail, i would recommend the Leupold CQBSS! 2012 Optic of the Year!

    My cousin is one of the head designer for the CQBSS and it is a badass scope. Even with his employee discount i cant afford one.

    Isn't that the truth! I've gotten to play with one, it's smooth, bright, clear, just flat amazing.

    Seems like kind of a apples to radishes comparison I really like my mark ar 3-9 but it is nowhere near as nice a scope as the HAMR (nor anywhere near the cost either) but it serves a different purpose than a fixed 4x scope There is little overlap in application between a 14x scope and a 4x so I suppose it depends on what you want it for.
