Optics for SBR

Alright, looking for optics for a SBR that I should have my stamp for in July. Looking at all the top optics in 1x's, red dots, 1-4's etc. I have a budget of around $2000. Tell me what you would buy and why. Just don't throw out optics without giving a reason for it please.

Thanks,

Jon

    What do you have in mind?

    I am running an Aimpoint H-1 2MOA with a LaRue QD that I find very accurate at 100 and less yrds. I have a Rainier 3X optic for running > 100 yrds but I have yet to utilize it. The glass is clear and it seems sturdy.

    I have given them ALL a look, Aimpoints, EoTech's, both with added 3x's, S&B 1.5-6, NF 1-4, Trijicon's with their RMR.

    I run a IOR 1.5 - 8 on another AR, it's a fine piece of glass and works VERY well with both eyes open at 1.5 and than at 8x out to a 6inch, 600 yard plate. But truth be told its very heavy and I want something a little lighter.

    The rig ins a 10.5 LMT. I have a Noveske switchblock, and centrion rail, and M4-2000 just waiting for the stamp for the SBR to show up.

    As I handle more and more optics and try and to remain true to the SBR, I am leaning more towards a AimPoint Micro T. The Trijicon's with RMR are nice, just have a hard time getting over their eye relief.

    All the 1-4s or more are just so freaking heavy.
