    So the 11.5 that is next to my bed has a MRO and the 11.5 that I keep in my truck the majority of the time has a 1-6 pst, IMO it’s going to come down to the intended use

    Aimpoint Micro or 1-X LPVO

I have an old PST 1-4x that works fine, and it’s lighter than the Vortex 1-6x.
    For what its worth, Fusion MSR exits an 11.5” barrel at ~2600 fps and expands well down to at least 1700fps. That gets you 300+yd expansion and even a neophyte can get hits with that velocity at 200yds.

    Watched MrGnG’s video of the BCM 11.5 pistol and he scoped it with a Trijicon Accupower 1-4x.

    I think Garand Thumb might use Aimpoint Micro for his 11.5 but I need to look/check/confirm.

    Any favorites or suggestions gratefully appreciated, with my thanks in advance ...
    Once upon a time, when people would ask for advice on an optic or any piece of kit, the first question asked by more senior members of the group was usually What do you intend to do with it? or What is the purpose/mission?

    Nothing has changed in that regard, and it's a question that you need to ask yourself before deciding on what optic family you're leaning toward (reflex sights, LPVOs, fixed power magnification, etc.). Knowing your mission/intended use will go a long way in informing which optic might be optimal for the application.

    On my 11.5 I'm running a T2 on a KAC high rise. On my 12 I'm running an EXPS on a Larue riser. On my 9 I'm running a T2 on a KAC high rise.

    I’m a big fan of the mro for red dot or a vortex razor if you want to go lpvo
