Are you sure you want a magnified optic for that snubnose little boomstick?

What kind of optic are you looking for?

Nightforce or US Optics is where you want to look.

Vortex. A Viper PST 1-4x can be had for around $450. They also sell trimmed down models for less.

Said it before, and I will say it again, here and in 2 other posts.
You can't beat Vortex Optics.
Stay away from the bottom line models. Go Mid or above.
They are a US based company, out of Madison WI.
The R&D guy is an M1a/M14 owner.
They have lifetime warranties on all their products.
Hope this helps.
A Viper sits on top of my Standard. I love it.
Next rifle will get another Vortex Scope.
