That depends on what you intend to use it for, your budget, and several other factors.

Premier retlcles heritage.. http://www.premierreticles.com/products/3-15x50.php


for your troy, you kind of went two ways by putting a loaded m1a into a CQB chassis like the troy.

You could bridge that by going with one of these. http://www.usoptics.com/optics.html?uso_lander_power=97 giving you CQB and the ability to reach out for those long shots.

That being said I think you will be happiest with the premier reticles heritage its a great scope for what you are intending.

Also any offering from night force, or from US optics would be just fine. depends on your wallet.


I went with a weaver 1-5x scope for my m1a. because i good a good deal, and i can't afford a really great piece of glass, but weavers are really good optics.
this is defiantly the most asked question that has no real answer, but thats my opinion.

Thanks from Techasn

I understand that there are many factors to making the proper decision for a scope. Just want yall's opinions on your favorite/best.

I have never regret buying my trijicon scope. not even for a second, when you look through those high dollar scopes just before the sun goes down, on high magnification, you know where all the money went.

Thumbs up

the best optic you can afford!

Seroiously, What is in your budget.....?

if you have unlimited funds I would go Nightforce, USO, Shimdt&Bender, Leupold MK4 etc...

If you have a beer pocket book like me .... Leupold VX1 or VX2, or VX3 first choice depending on your $s.

Nikon prostaff 2nd choice with the BDC reticle. or a little cheaper without the bdc.

all these have excellent optics with light gathering coated lenses that help in foggy lowlight conditions. I have hunted with the VX1, VX2, VX3, and the Nikon prostaffs. I won't say anything negative about any of them. they work and work in wet rainy conditions. all of these are durable scopes if you take care of them. If you don't take care of them the most expensive will still break.

just my .02.

I guess if I had to put a budget on it I would say my ceiling would be $1500.

unless you mean you are going to miss paying bills then ya you might regret it.

save your money for the chinese bear invasion


ooh had to work that into another thread.

but seriously techsan, did you get that PRS? or did you get the UBR? that is what we need to know. For the PRS your leaning sniper get a big stink in premier. but with the troy being a CQB chassis you should consider the UBR and a 1-6x scope... so many options

Thanks from RandyB45 and Techasn

Why is the Troy MCS considered a CQB chassis?

if your budget is $1500 hands down a US Optics ST10 you can add some nice options best glass you will ever see thru IMO for that dollar range, people you have to remember the troy a is modular chassis you can make it what you want cqb or long range with the addition of a prs and sniper palm rest grip or cqb with a folding stock
