Good to know about the NC Star. That's actually one that a lot of people were pushing at the gun show but a few people there said they are "Chinese crap".

Any recommendations on optics? I'm going to use the gun mostly for varmint/hog hunting at night. I'll also use it for shooting does. I don't plan on attempting any shots over 200 yards with this setup.

I would like something with a laser and lighted reticle. Also want some sort of spotlight. Not sure if anyone makes an all-in-one combo for this stuff or if I'll need to get the spotlight separately. I've seen a couple of setups that have 2 scopes...one for magnification and another for night optics, I believe. How are those?

I'm very familiar with guns but I'm completely new to the AR world so I appreciate your suggestions.

I got a EOTech holographic sight. They have a version that is compatible with night vision devices if you ever decide to go that route. Look at Surefire's stuff for lights.

cheaperthandirt.com <----good deals, selection

ar15.com has crazy amounts of info...just use the search button on that forum, you'll find answers

I like the look of the holographic sights but I want something that has an adjustable magnification (maybe a 3x9). I guess that I should have mentioned that before.

EOTech has a magnifier as well...that's next on my list. Sits right behind the sight. It's more expensive than the sight itself...

I ended up putting on a cheap Barska 3x9 with illuminated reticle. I only spent $100 on it but it actually worked nicely. I shot a few pigs with it and the glass wasn't too bad. It's not a Zeiss but I think it'll work until I upgrade to a nice night vision setup.



Got the flip up lens covers for it. Starting to take shape.

I sure would love to have one of those. Maybe next Christmas Santa will smile on me. Can't say I was disappointed last year though, got a M&P .40. Love that pistol.

I have had good luck with my primary arms accessories. I have this https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary_...ht_p/pam3m.htm
on my M4. I dont think I would take it into battle, but I have been pretty rough with it and it is still holding zero.

I have their light also, https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary_..._p/pawl-01.htm its pretty sweet as well.
