    Never heard of Arken. So many optic companies these days, I wonder how many will still be around a few years down the road. Specs look pretty good. Price looks really good. I like the 34mm tube, zero stop and the Horus-esque FFP reticle. If this is going on a .308, I would go for the 6-24x.

    This guy is familiar with high-end glass and he seems impressed:

    No idea either....but for the price the Primary Arms ACSS 1-6X or 1-8X optics (FFP or SFP for the cheaper ones) are really good...and inexpensive enough to have commonality on the majority of your guns.

    PA definitely has a very good reputation and probably isn't going anywhere soon. Their ACSS reticles (there are so many variants now) are great for fast shooting and those who don't like doing math. For precision mid to long range though, reticle like Arken's is very nice to have. It all depends on what the scope is going on and what you do with it.

    I recently picked up a Sig Tango6 6-24x on clearance with their DEV-L MRAD reticle on clearance. Very pleased with it. It is basically the Arken of the same magnification plus illumination, a built-in digital level and a little bit more flash.
