Scope for my SOCOM16

I'm looking to get a Burris or Aimpoint scope for my SOCOM16 for hog hunting. Would like to hear from other SOCOM owners which one they are using, model numbers, mounting problems etc. Please include any yays and nays.

Any information would be helpful.

RD

I have a Burris 2.75X20 Scout scope on my Socom 16 and so far it has been great. The 2-7X32 may be a little more versatile but for the ranges I see and shoot pigs my scope works fine.

Thanks from Radio Dude

I once had a Aimpoint Pro on my SOCOM. I mounted it on the factory scout rail and it really through off the balance or the rifle. I removed it and stuck with the irons. If I were to do it over again I'd buy a mount that attaches to the receiver and buy a micro red dot. Good luck.

Thanks from Radio Dude
