Long-range shooters looking for the perfect scope to top their favorite AR need look no further. Nightforce’s new SHV first focal plane 4-14x50 F1 is built with the long-range shooter in mind. The lighted MOAR or MIL-R reticle features 11 illumination levels with an “off” setting between each one. Windage and elevation adjustments are available in .25 MOA or .1 Mil-Radian increments. Adjustment levels go up to 90 MOA for elevation and 70 MOA for windage, and the elevation turret can be set to zero quickly. ($1,290;

The right optic, laser sight or flashlight makes the perfect addition to any AR, and it can be a tactical advantage in any defensive or combat scenario.

As if your life wasn’t filled with enough choices already, along come a dozen new sights built just for AR-platform rifles. They are as complex or as simple as you want and range in price from a few hundred dollars to around $1,000, or more. They include standard reflex-type sights to scopes and even high-definition night-vision optics. No matter the size of your budget or the type of shooting you prefer, one thing’s for sure: Any of these optic options will make a great addition to your gun safe.

So what’s a dedicated shooter to do? Buy two or three, of course, and then buy a new rifle to attach them to. See? It wasn’t such a dilemma, after all, was it? Check out these great AR sights and lights to give your rifle a tactical edge.
