Default Used ACOGs

Does anyone know where to find used ACOGs for a decent price? I want to get one for whatever AR-10/15 I buy in the near future but I have trouble paying more for an optic than I do for an AR-15 (Stag Model 2 priced at just over $800).

I don't want one of those $30 Chinese made copies though. I've dealt with "bargain" optics and will never buy them again.

I don't expect to find an ACOG for $100 anywhere but I really can't justify spending over a grand for a scope like that.

Outside appearance doesn't matter as long as the glass and adjustments are in good working order.

Can anybody help?

(I don't need to buy one right away, I just started a new job yesterday and have to save my pennies until I can afford a new rifle)

That's the kind of optic I want yes.

I do plan on having an AR with a Millett DMS on it as it's a 1-4X and I don't seem to function well with the holographic red dot sights like the EOTech or the Aimpoint.

What happened with the ACOG having bible verses controversy? Is the military going to grind them off or get new ACOG's? If they're replacing them we'll see some surplus soon

From what my brother told me, they are grinding the "offending" numbers off the currently issued ones and Trijicon is removing them from any future deliveries of optics.

Scott, I'm nowhere near good enough to require a $2,000 scope for anything. Besides, spending near $1,400 on an optic for rifle that costs just over $800 is kinda stupid to me.

It won't be for competition or anything like that so I don't need top of the line. But I don't plan on buying a Trashco $40 scope. I don't want to spend over a grand either.

I know your set on an ACOG but Aimpoint or EOTEC and Burris makes very good stuff around $4-800

I can't use Aimpoints or EOTechs. Holographic red dot sights don't work for me. They screw up my vision for some reason. The one I used last August drove me nuts and I couldn't focus properly for a full minute after using it.

I need something that's an actual scope.
