Default What scope for 6.8 AR15 w/ carry handle

Hey Guys- I need to add a scope to one of my rifles. It's a 16" AR15 in 6.8 SPC with a carry handle upper and A2 front sight.

The only Trijicon ACOG I can find in 6.8 is for flat top uppers. Was wondering if anyone had a link, name, or pictures of the ACOG which was made for a carry handle AR15 in 6.8.

Also, if you have a 6.8 carry handle AR15 with a scope on it, I would love to see pics to get ideas in case I want to go a different route.

Thanks Calgunners.

The baby 1.5x ACOGs would work well on your carry handle. They offer a carry handle mount, and the optic is small enough that you wont be goosenecking to sight through the optic.

Anyone know the model of ACOG for 6.8 on a carry handle upper?

There is no ACOG for a carry handle with a 6.8 reticle.

Swap your upper out for a flat-top.

Could never get my optics to work well enough off the carry handle -

I use a strike force vortex cowitnessed with the front sight (lolipopped) -

And a flip to the side 5x magnifier for shots past 250 yards due to old eyes....

Darn, thought they didn't have one designated for it. Looks like I have an excuse to get an LWRC M6a3. Aw gee wizz.

Swapping uppers is a pretty simple task, and you could sell that A2 upper in the marketplace to recoup some of your money.

Flat-top uppers can be found for under $200.

Thank you for the info. I have a flat top upper already, was just looking for something specifically for the carry handle. I like the oldschool looks of the carry handle for this particular build.

Yeah, carry handles and scopes just don't work very well together.

All I've been hearing from people is that you cant get your head in the right place behind it. Cheek rests too high. M16 has the right idea on the swap to a flat top.
