    I’m on the LPVO spectrum

  2. Mr McDonald on December 7, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    Hey i am curious ,i am buying a Mossberg Mvp scout in 308. winchester and i am looking for a long eye relief which i can use both my eyes open on it. any ideas?

  3. Ten Bears on December 7, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    If you’re wearing a t-shirt with one of the most famous bounty hunters on it, I’m buying anything you’re selling !!

  4. Wayne LeRoy on December 7, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Great review.
    I’ve gotta say though, I don’t know how you can shoot accurately holding a rifle with your forward arm straight but I guess it works for you.
    It won’t work for me though. There’s just no way to lock things into place.

  5. Bill 92869 on December 7, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Unless they’ve improved things, the Monstrum was shit

  6. Mr McDonald on December 7, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    I think Every scope should come with mounting rings, its like selling a car without wheels really isnt it,unless you want a specific type of rings. Im not too picky as long as they are solid and can take a lot of abuse.

  7. Charles A Williams Jr on December 7, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    sick shirt👹

  8. Charles X on December 7, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    I have a Bushnell Trophy 4-9 magnification. It doesn’t have a throw lever and thank to you I’m gonna order one. My only gripe is it doesn’t have any Mildots , only markings in it is the crosshairs but 9 mag really helps my old eyes see. If I miss my target it’s not gonna be cause I couldn’t see it

  9. Alex Acevedo on December 7, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    I love Aero Precision my first 5.56 build was with her upper and lower receiver and upper kit

  10. James Pollard on December 7, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Great info

  11. Scott Farkus on December 7, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    Why doesn’t someone build a 1-6x scope with everything on it? They’re all missing something. They’ll have a nice reticle that’s daylight bright, a throw lever, a nice mount, zero locking target turrets, but it’s 2nd focal plane. Or some combination of not quite gooder.

  12. Marine Pete on December 7, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    Awesome review. I have been impressed with the Busnell AR series as well. Found some excellent buys at MidwayUSA. Maybe you have done a review of Nikon lineup for AR’s, if not please think about that in future.

  14. mattwagnerofficial on December 7, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    this dork is running back and forth 50 feet back to his pavillion. like he is in a battle.

  15. dominic rossop on December 7, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Vortex 1×6 strike eagle should make the list

  16. Mr McDonald on December 7, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Why does everyone talk with their hands so much? and what is it supposed to be? I notice this on Tv profgramming a lot ,it must be some "Television technique" or acting or something.

  17. Jake Eames on December 7, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Sry after the first scope being not even $100….. junk is not going on my beautiful ar. Optics are your biggest investment in your rifle. Not accessories…. don’t cut yourself short and buy any of these pos

  18. 01nmuskier on December 7, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    The biggest problem with Monstrum products is that they do not hold zero. I went through three different models. The tightest groups I could get were 8MOA (4" @ 50 yards). I don’t even consider that zeroed.
    Total junk.

  19. Large Larry on December 7, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    It’s not for use out in bright sunlight it will show up black for that. If it’s just a range day and you’re sighting in your rifle just shut it off and save the battery. All sights will have a sweet spot indoors just before they start to bloom and show all kinds of light around the outer edge of the lenses. Use this setting if you are facing real trouble and you need to get busy. It’s for when your eyes are adjusted for bright sunlight and you run inside you can pick-up the sight fast, it will be their automatically without thinking about it. I hope this helps.

  20. Vash Matrix on December 7, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    I’d love an updated vid on a good budget lvpo for 300bo.

  21. - Kepha on December 7, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    I think its pathetic that you tell these listeners to participate in the comment section, as if you were actually going to participate, but your nowhere to be found. Guess there questions and comments just weren’t a priority, but I guarantee you’ll still want them to like and subscribe for your benefit

  22. Duece bigalow male gigalow on December 7, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Don’t get the monstrum I bought it for an airsoft gun and dropped it once and the glass cracked

  23. illiterate ink on December 7, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    In ten years it’ll be called LVPOQ

  24. Dee-Bee Kooper on December 7, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Atibal makes better stuff then Monstrum or Bushnell. ACSS is the best reticle regardless of price.

  25. Bratton Arnette on December 7, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Have you checked out Swampfox optics?

  26. Anthony Ross on December 7, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    I run the bushnell AR optic on my shotgun. I shoot 3" 12 guage sabots with it for deer hunting. I shot a doe at a full run from about 100 yards out,and yes it held zero! I very strongly reccomend the bushnell AR optic. Its mounted on a mossberg 500 which is a pump gun.

  27. jd Martinez on December 7, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Those medium mounts will not work for ar’s with a true front iron sight …u will need a scope riser atleast with 1 inch raise

  28. Clarence Smith on December 7, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    I like the first one best because it doesn’t have the horse shoe Reticle

  29. Angel Myoujin on December 7, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    What do you recommend for a 300blk set up?

  30. Dee Noneya on December 7, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    This guy looks like the guy from without paddle

  31. Shooterz Paradise on December 7, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Can you use any of these with the carbine style ar’s?

  32. gypsymanjeff 21 on December 7, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Hmm ..no mention of 1st or 2nd focal plane.why not???

  33. snowman7154 on December 7, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Any thoughts on the Vortex 1X6?

  34. brianbirc on December 7, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Is there now a PA with the focal plane that the BDC works at different magnifications ? I suspect there is and 1×8 if mot 1×10 not sure. How does the PA do against Vortex scopes. These may be more $$ but not in the high cost group.

  35. Gregory Shepard on December 7, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Just picked up the Monstrum on Amazon and it came with a cantilever for $105. I was surprise how clear the glass was. Glad it made the list.

  36. deadhorse on December 7, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    It’s a Bushnell it a brand name and quality product so you are going to get that right out of the box ….. Until it’s broken right out of the box then Bushnell charges shipping to them and shipping back to replace it then the 2nd one you get is also broken right out of the box… Then they again charge you shipping both ways to return it yet again and then make you wait 8 months for you 3rd optic because they changed manufactures in China and had a huge batch of bad optics but yet still fail to compensate you for your time or for all the shipping charges to make it right… Bushnell has the worst customer service. And a horrible warranty, and puts out products that have no QC at all. But it’s Bushnell it’s quality right out of the box…

  37. RKBA on December 7, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    I’m like cheap but I’d never put a budget optic on a fighting rifle. Range toy, yes. Fighting or hunting rifle, no. I wouldn’t want to blow a $4K Elk Hunt because my budget optic went kaput on the side of a mountain somewhere. I think the fighting rifle point is self-evident.

  38. Alaskan Ballistics on December 7, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Good to see mark getting some action on here. He’s a good guy

  39. Doc Holliday on December 7, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Pay the extra hundred bucks and get the acss raptor

  40. Chata Fuq on December 7, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Great video “depending upon when and where” you watch it. LOL.

  41. gunfreak on December 7, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    I would have liked to have seen the BSA rather than the Bushnell. I don’t consider Bushnell "quality". There upper teir optics are but the other stuff is Chinese crap.

  42. ϟLVTΞR on December 7, 2021 at 9:03 pm


  43. M B on December 7, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    For $80 you get an $80 scope. Be good on a $80 rifle…

  44. Jim G on December 7, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    What wou,d you recommend for the HK 416 22 pistol?

  45. Dan on December 7, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Thank you, but I could have read the specs on these myself!

  46. Big al From brewster on December 7, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    I had to sell my gun to buy a scope now I have a scope but I don’t have a gun

  47. HelmtheShip on December 7, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Budget my ass. I would say the first option is a budget option but… Nah sorry, this list isn’t budget

  48. Good Bonezz on December 7, 2021 at 9:07 pm


  49. Bt Wiese on December 7, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    $20 throw lever?…. do tell.

  50. Don Huynh on December 7, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Man, monstrum does not hold zero at all. Either that or I got a lemon
