Well, the issue scope for the M82 was the Leupold Mark4 4.5-14x. They're under $2k and you can still find them used. Just hunt around. Leupold doesn't make the Mark 4 series any longer except for Military contracts and special orders in quantity. I'd look at the Mark 4 replacement or similar (https://www.leupold.com/vx-3hd-4-5-14x40-side-focus-cds-zl-wind-plex) . There are plenty of others that you can get from them that are under $2K and for that gun, a 5-25x would be ideal but anything 14x and over works well.I'm in need of a rifle scope for my Barrett M82a1.......what would you suggest in the $2k or less range.....thanks for your input
Your linked scope doesn’t have a zero stop and is second focal plane. Two things which are a must for me are zero stop and first focal plane for long range shooting. I also desire more of a “Christmas Tree” reticle.Is there a reason?
Also, what Vortex Razors? The HDs are as much as a NiFo and Leupold Mark 5, so that not really a cost savings.
