Ozark, this is a wrap from gunskins.com I thought they had the better pattern for an AR.
The hole in the cap improves depth of field greatly at short ranges .It allows me to focus at 100 and have a clear picture at 25 yards . It makes a huge difference on my atn binoculars too .I find the dawn dusk capability to be as good or better than my scopes. looking toward the sun has been a challenge. Definitely use the sunshade. I also used a lens cover with a 9mm case hole in it but don't remember that helping any more than the sunshade alone. Will need to go back in the thread to find out.
Thank You. I don't have it yet to see the shape. I was going by the original X-Sight that I had. They were bulky and could interfere with the bolt throw on some rifles when positioned far enough back for good eye relief.ac, my rings are the standard 1.5 inches above the mounting rail (standard AR). This ATN scope is configured like a standard scope so I'm not seeing how it would interfer with a bolt action rifle. I find having scopes mounted too high on my non-ARs problematic. I would start low and work up. Do you have other 30mm rings you can use as a test case?
