Take a look at our selection and find the perfect scope for your next AR build.

Long Range AR-15 Scopes

The Razorback 1-6X24SFP is our Low Power Variable Optic or LPVO. The 1-6x means 1x is its lowest magnification for rapid target acquisition while 6x is its highest magnification for long range engagement. 24 means the objective lens diameter is 24 millimeters & SFP means the scope is second focal plane or also referred to as rear focal plane. An LPVO tactical scope is best suited to the AR 15 and other AR carbines that must deal with a mix of close-quarters, fast-moving shooting as well as mid-range and longer range engagements. This Razorback LPVOs flexibility, in comparison to a red dot sight or holographic sight, is its main advantage.

Red Dots for AR15

A red dot sight enables you to acquire targets swiftly, also allowing for a wide field of view. They're simple to use and can easily help first-time shooters. In addition, they work well in low-light conditions. The primary advantage to a red dot sight vs a long range scope is the fast acquisition of targets. Although red dot sights have no magnification, Red dots acquire targets significantly faster compared to high magnification rifle scopes. As a result, for quick target acquisition (up to 100 yards) & the capability to hit fast moving targets, a quality red dot such as our Rhino Red/Green Dot Sight is strongly advised for your AR15. If you are needing higher precision for a target further away then a 2 MOA red dot sight like our Razorback MRD is the choice for you. Many AR15 operators improve their red dot sight build quality by adding a magnifier optic to get the best of both worlds in target acquisition.

Reflex Sight

Other AR 15 scopes, such as our AR 15 Wide Angle Reflex Sight, don't have a beam that is visible. They use adaptive parallax instead of magnification and are intended for fast targeting. Meaning they're best for fast paced, versatile target acquisition and can be used with both eyes open. The tunnel vision that one gets used to with a fixed power telescopic scope is eliminated, and both spatial and peripheral vision are fully maintained while using reflex sights with both eyes open. As a result, catching the majority, if not all, aiming mistakes like tilting can help you acquire your target much faster. Like a red dot sight, these sights are suited for close range & medium range situations up to 100 yards. Many AR 15 operators swear by these scopes and add a magnified optic such as our Rhino 4X for more magnification to easily hit targets at a distance.

AR Platform Magnified Scopes

Speaking of magnified scopes, how do you decide what magnification optic is best for your AR 15? There is a belief that you should use a level of magnification that is just enough to hit the target. To keep it simple, too much magnification may bring disadvantages like weight, complexity, and distortion, resulting in a decrease in the rifle scopes' effectiveness. Many shooters settle on an optic with magnification between 3X and 6X as they find they don't require more for precise shots at 300 yards & under. When choosing your AR 15 magnifier, consider if you want one that has a flip-to-side mount such as our Razorback 3X to allow you to quickly move the magnifier out of the way when the situation calls for it.


What type of scope should I put on my AR 15?

Determining the best tactical rifle scope for your build is an important question.  If you're after a scope that will allow fast target acquisition in medium to short ranges, then a red dot will likely be the right optic for your rifle.  If you're looking for a scope that provides accuracy at longer ranges, then perhaps an LPVO is the right choice.

What size scope do I need for AR 15?

Start by determining the level of magnification needed to achieve your goals.  For 300 yards & under, magnified optics such as a 3x or 4x will work for achieving high accuracy.  If your goal is precise shots beyond 300 yards, you'll likely need a 6x magnified rifle scope or higher.

Should I put a scope or red dot sight on my AR?

For ranges of 100 yards or less many operators prefer a red dot due to its superior fast target acquisition capabilities.  If your priority is a range of over 100 yards, then an optic or scope will most likely be the best choice for your AR.
