Hi I own a Springfield Socom II Rifle in .308 cal. I want to put on a Trijicon scope on it . What model and is a 4x32 power fine for shooting out to 200 yards and I course for the short ranges also,Close Quarter combat. I wear eye glasses so is this scope a good one? Any info would help. Thanks

Get an ACOG4x w/ the Docter red-dot sight if you can afford it.... BEST of both world....

ACOGs are nice, but try them at a store before you buy. You might be surprised about the amount of eye relief on some of them.

The real question is, how do you plan to mount it on your SOCOM ?

+1

I personally think that an EOTech or AIMPOINT (I personally prefers the EOTech) is a better fit....

If you are only shooting to 200 yards save a bunch of $$$ get your glasses fixed, and use iron sights.

Tony M hit it where are you going to mount the optic.

Uh, I wouldn't recommend the ACOG w/Doctor(JPoint) combo in your case. It's a very "high" setup that can be problematic up close and if you drop it once the ACOG is the only part that will survive. Also most ACOG reticles are designed for .223 setups. If you're set on having a magnified dot optic, you could try the Trijicon Accupoint (TR21). The ACOG is really good as a fixed defensive optic, but there are better overall setups (for less in some cases). If you're focused on 50-200m shots, then an Aimpoint or EOTech would be a good choice (as would irons). If you wanted to go any farther I'd recommend a low magnification variable optic like a Leupold MR/T 1.5x5. It's more expensive, you get variable magnification and you get an illuminated reticle. The Nightforce NXS 1x4 is good too, but the reticle illumination isn't bright enough during the day.

If I was in your position, I'd go with an Aimpoint (2MOA).

Brando is correct about the reticle for 223 but they do make one for 308. My choice would be the Accupoint. If you don't like the one you buy put it on another rifle.

Good luck

TR21s are very popular with 3-gun matches and are an undrated optic. Randy's correct, you can get a .308 BDC reticle for the ACOG, but as far as I know they are only available in certain models (such as the 5x large ACOG for M240).

Where do you live? I might be able to arrange for you to see a EER 2.5 Leupold, a 2 power Aimpoint and a Accupoint all on scouts.

I use a EER 2.5 Leupy on my Scout and it's fantastic as an intermediate rifle.

I like my TR21R very much. No needs battery and the glass is very clear. I got the version of the SOCOMII with extended rail because I wanted more than a red-dot; in my mind you get more options with a varible scope. I do not see myself clearing any room any time soon of course, and I am just sharing what I had in mind before I got the Trijicon:

Elcan: SpecterDR 1x/4x
IOR Valdada: 1.1-4x26
Leupold: Mark 4 CQ/T 1-3x14
Leupold: Mark 4 MR/T 1.5-5x20
Schmidt Bender: Short Dot (Marksman II) 1.1-4x20
Trijicon: Accpoint TR21R 1.25-4x24
U.S. Optics: SN-4 1-4x22

Other makers like Meopta, Swarovski, Nightforce and many more make this type of optics too, but those weren't my tall glass of Coke per se.

(Don't mind the doggie, he had a long day too...)
