If you are just going to be using the rifle with irons and don't want to put any more money it it get the one with the rotary diopter. I went with the base ER model and put quality sights on mine for example.
..."plain jane, bottom ringer with 556 iron sights" is the way to go...especially if you plan to mount an optic...and buy it from a dealer that has a store front...so that you can examine her "carefully" before purchasing her...and this means you'll need to field strip her...if he doesn't allow this...walk away...Stryker_556 said:... plain jane, bottom ringer with 556 Iron sights
or the Classic with Rotary Diopter Rear Sights?
