There are thousands of options when it comes to optics for the AR-15 platform and every combination will get you something different. This week on Gear Tasting Radio, Bryan and Rob discuss choosing an optic for a short barreled rifle and why magnification may not be as important as you’d think.
In addition, they walkthrough some of the issues experienced when shortening the barrel of an AR, including decreases in velocity and increases in pressure inside the gun.
