Does anyone know of a dealer in the north Atlanta area that carries, in stock, one of those AR-15 scope bases that is made for AR's with a fixed carry handle? Looking for an inexpensive one to stick a cheap hunting scope on an old Colt SP-1,

OR, it could be the scope/mount combination, where the short 3x or 4x fixed-power scope is mounted to the scope mount and base permanently.

Something like this:

I think I have one laying around someplace. I'll look it up later and if I can find it you are welcome to it.

I got the Barska scope a few weeks ago. Seemed solid and easy to install on AR's with the carry handle. Got a rough zero by looking under the scope and still seeing my rifle's iron sights that got me within 12 inches of the center of the target at 100 yards.

Adjusting the scope's turret knobs (with a dime or penny) was fast and easy a couple of two shot groups at 100 yards got me dead-on.

The scope doesn't have as good light gathering ability as a conventional hunting scope with a 32 mm to 40 mm front lens and a 1 inch body.
But it's close.

On two nights at two different locations, I sat outdoors from 20 minutes before dark until it was thoroughly dark and I looked around the woods and fields with the scope-- and another scope also fixed 4X power.

The BARSKA was only a little bit dimmer and it allowed me to see things that I could not see with my naked eyes.


At the range, shooting at 100 and 200 yards, this cheap Barska scope cut my group sizes in half. From 200 yards most of my iron sight groups were around 10 inches; that shrunk to 5 inches when I was doing five shot groups after I got the scope on.


I say it's worth the $62 that I paid from Amazon.com, and the seven dollars extra I paid for three year extended warranty.

Pic of that Barska carry-handle mount AR-15 scope on a retro-AR build rifle.
Sorry that this pic isn't so good at showing off the scope, and in this photo it's got those ugly lens covers on both ends.

Just so everyone knows, in the corner of that SG ad page it has the UPC code. The bottom number below. Google that and you will find it online at other websites and you can likely find an excellent deal on purchasing one.

The center of that scope now sits
3.687" above the center of the bore.
I measured it today with a micrometer. See pic.
I could be off by may maybe 1/16
of an inch, but not more than that.
