I am finally receiving my new Tavor 7 next week, after looking for one since last August. I have not decided yet on an optic for the rifle and would like to hear what Tavor 7 owners selected for their rifles.

Because I have astigmatism, I generally prefer a scope to a red dot. I usually shoot to 100 yards, but occasionally get to use a range where I can shoot to as much as 500 yards.

I have a Primary Arms 3x Prisms equipped on two Tavor SAR sand have been considering either the 3x or 5x prism for the Tavor 7. I have not used the PA 5x prism and would like to hear from anyone who has experience with it compared to the PA 3x Prism. And if you are a Tavor 7 owner, what optic did you select?

I use an Elcan Specter 1x4. If i were to do it again I would probably go to the 1.5X6 or even the new 1X3X9 power. They are pricey but well worth the $$ in my opinion (which in the grand scheme probably isn't worth a hill of beans  Smiley).

For my wants/needs, I'm going to pick up an Elcan 1x/4x for my T7 pretty soon.

Based upon what you mentioned about your eyes and type of shooting, I would probably suggest a traditional LPVO in 1-6x. You didn't mention a budget, so I can't recommend a manufacture. But there are a number of options out there. As always, just get the best glass you can afford.

Elcan 1/4 or 1.5/6 with RMR on top... or if you are on a budget ... Steiner P4XI cannot be beat ... excellent optic and it is currently my go-to LPVO under $700.

The Elcan 1/3/9 is meh...too heavy...too expensive and at 9X the FOV is veeeery narrow...not to mention the reticle is not sharp at all and hazy...

I think mounting an RMR on top of a scope might be better suited to a fixed power scope like an Trijicon Acog or Steiner T-Series battle sights.

Naw...1.5-6 Elcan is a great candidate for a RMR up top...especially within 50m

I wouldnt run one on a 1-4...

Congrats on your new T7.

As far as an optic. The best you can afford.

I've heard good things about the USO TS series...it is believed that the US TS-series optics are made by the same Chinese company as Primary Arms optics...was looking at the TS-12X but I heard it has some weird feeling turrets (loose to tight to loose to tight)...so been holding off.

I looked at the Elcan -- talked to guys on the swat team that had one --- they are heavy and pricey.  I have Burris XTR II 1x4 on my SAR's and have had ZERO problems --- I went with the Burris XTR II 1.5x8 for my T7.  Have not yet tried it out yet though.

I paid just over $600 and got it on sale with the 34mm perp mount.

I run a Burris 1X4 on my AR15. It is a decent optic & might be a little lighter than my Elcan. There is though no comparison in the field of view or the quality of the glass between the two, the Elcan is a far superior optic & in this case you do get what you pay for.

Elcan weighs the same as your XTR...but high quality doesn't come cheap. Truthfully...95% of firearms owners will get away with a sub $500 optic for the rest of their life...

My limit for a scope is 60 to 75% of what the gun cost me -- the MSRP was $999 with out the mount and fast fire and I purchased these when I was on the list for the MDR - which I bailed on after 2 years on the list and the T7's were coming out.

true the weight is almost the same -- but for 1200 to 1400 less - your paying for features that the majority of shooters will never need. do you really need a scope that can be under water for 2 hrs and at 60 feet?  High quality no doubt, but I do not take my gun when I go scuba diving  Grin - but being in the woods and 3 gun I do

1 yr warranty vs a lifetime warranty to me is a good deal, lord help me if should I ever drop it or bang it into a tree.  But you are right, you get what you pay for. But since I have 2 - I saved myself $2800 --- now what to buy

As I said...95% owners will get away with sub $500 optics...

There is more to it than just waterproofing...there is NOTHING wrong with an XTR...they are great optics. I am eyeing a 2-10X42 actually...

While Elcan states 1 year warranty...Armament Tech...who services Elcans for Elcan...they stand behind Elcan products and will service them...had a 2014 model dump on me and got a brand new unit in less than a week turnaround.
