down to 2 scopes for my ar15

I know this one is a good scope:
Simmons Whitetail Classic Rifle Scope 6.5-20x 50mm Adjustable Objective Truplex Reticle Matte - MidwayUSA


this one sounds good and has some nice features, and i love shit that glows. seriously love... so take that into consideration
Leapers TS Platform Rifle Scope 6-24x 50mm Adjustable Objective Red and Green Illuminated Mil-Dot Reticle Matte - MidwayUSA

Im really just looking to use the magnification up to 14, and im confident in both scopes for that. does anyone have any experience with the leapers scope?

also if i get a quick release mount will I need one that moves the scope forward or not?, cuz its a big scope

I have the Simmons on my 10-22 and love it.

I read the reviews on the Leapers and it apparently doesn't hold zero very well.

Up to you which you go with. :)

Leapers is crap. Period. Have you looked at the Leupold VX1? 3-9x40.. It's what I have on my 6.8 and I love it.

WTS: Leupold scope

you should put this scope on it. It's pricey at first, but guaranteed for life. I also believe Leupold is in Oregon?

$400 for a 6.5x20 VX-III.... That's a steal!! Granted it looks like a gloss vs matte finish, but a can of spray paint and it'll be good to go.

go with crosshairs so you can tell if you are canting the rifle left or right(everyone does it) if you mount it high like on the carry handle you can gain quite a bit of windage the farther away the target is with a little tilt
