MTAC™ Riflescope 1.5-6x42mm is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from MTAC A Lot Of Scope For A Lot Less Money This Burris MTAC 1.5-6 X 42mm is my second Burris scope that I've bought. My first Burris scope a XTR 1.5-6 X 40mm that I mounted on a AR-10 build made me a Burris enthusiast. First thing I noticed was that my new Burris MTAC scope was packaged great. The matte finish matches my AR-15 perfectly. Looking through the glass is super clear, I'm sure the 30mm tubes help with the clarity. The illuminated reticle is crisp, and clear with a wide range of adjustment. Weighing in at just 15.5 oz. the MTAC scope is a perfect match for my AR-15.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scope has me wanting a new one. I love the scope's quality. I specifically bought this scope because of the 42mm objective light gathering ability and low power setting (1.5times). Brought it to a Larry Vickers carbine class for a week and it worked great. I'd buy 2 or 3 more if they would offer a 42mm in 1.0 x 4 or 6 power...the 1.5 works up close but it requires specific training to use the 1.5 as a dot. 1.0 power on low with 42mm would be a real winner for low light....you don't get to pick the worst day of your life at that may not occur in broad daylight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and strong This is a full field scope I purchased for a Big and Dangerous Game, Heavy recoil Rifle, 1) the reticle is the type I like for accuracy at close and moderate distances 2) the 1.5 magnification is optimal for extra wide field of view and target acquisition in immediate need situations 3) The scope has good eye relief for the recoil of the 375 Ruger and Sturdy, 30 MM tube, good light gathering ability make this my choice for my big and dangerous game rifle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality for the price Very nice scope for the price, not a huge fan of the reticles thick circles but multiple brightness settings are nice. Was disappointed that lens covers for scope were not included and even more dismayed that Burris apparently doesn't offer them as an option but Im still happy I made the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on the eyes Bought this about two months ago. Took it to the range and like others reviewed the center dot could be a littler smaller but not that big of deal. Bought it mainly for my AR but the ad says it can be used on a 308 which sweetens the deal. My eyes are starting to fail with age so the adjustable distinctly defined reticle makes it a pleasure to sight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burris Scope 1.5x6x42 Ballistic AR I have a Fullfield 3x9 scope my Ma gave me for my birthday in the late 70s. I have two Fullfield 2 scopes, 3x9, one 2 power pistol scope on my Super Blackhawk Hunter and two Mtac 1x4x24 Ballistic CQ scopes. All these are Burris and covered with a forever warranty but I have never had any trouble with any of these. They all have been used repeatedly and roughly in some instances. My new scope a Mtac 1.5x6x42 Ballistic AR has just arrived. When I get the last part for my new rifle; a Wilson Combat 20" SS bull barrel I will let you know how it performs. I think because it is a Burris it will be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope I purchased the MTAC 1.5x6 a couple of weeks ago and had an opportunity to take it out and get it sighted in yesterday. Starting at 25yrds first round was on the paper, dialed in what I thought the correction should be at that distance was 1 low and .5 to the right, one more adjustment and I had it where I wanted and was ready to move to 100 yards. This scope is bright, the eyebox seems to be very good and the reticle (Ballistic AR) is amazing. While not daylight bright if you're in the direct sun on a light object, on the darker target with the power on 9 the reticle was very visible. Overall I'm very pleased with this scope at this point, enough so that I'd give a look to some of the other Burris products.

Looking for a scope for AR Sig MCX, a multi cal gun 5.56/300 blk out with a quick barrel change. At the range with 223/5.56 may plink to targets at 500 but when hunting with 300 blk out likely won't shoot past 300. Is this the right Burris scope for me.

Asked by: Chillin moose
You will likely need multiple DOPE cards and/or Reticle analysis sheets to use with multiple cartridges/loads, but yes, this scope should function well. ballistics.burrisoptics.com

Hello, I need to know if this model of scope, it's the ideal model for hunting, because all of comments it's not about hunting... It's a good choice? Thank you

Asked by: Nuno
This scope was built for tactical, target, and competition use. While it *can* be used as a hunting scope, that isn't what it was built for.

is this scope suitable for the 308?? or is it calibrated for 223?

Asked by: jukka
It will line up with most centerfire cartridges, but was built with NATO calibers in mind. Check out our Ballistics Tools for more detailed information http://ballistics.burrisoptics.com/reticle-analysis#:1

On the #200439 reticle the "G" measurement for the BDC says it's 1.25 mils thick which seems extremely thick considering the holdover mark for the shorter 100 yard shot is .25 mils thick. Is the BDC thickness supposed to be .125 mils instead of the 1.25?

Asked by: AlexA
You are correct, in the catalog and in the scope itself, the "G" subtension is 0.125 mils.

Can this 1.5-6X24 be mounted w/ the PEPR Mount and the FF III - Just like the MTAC 200426 FF? I want to keep the FFIII on the top and not canted to one side. If not, any other suggestions with just a little more magnification and compatible w/ a FFIII.

Asked by: JPLX
The taller turrets on the 1.5-6x will occlude your view through the FastFire. In order to mount the Fastfire vertically, you will need to use a scope with lower turrets. (it is for this reason that the XTRII 1.5-8x package comes with the canted scope tube FastFire mount, as the XTRII has taller turrets)
