    i have a M4 (colt 6920) and i was thinking about doing some small game hunting with it.i was wondering if the M4 is an accurate enough rifle for a magnification scope? if so...what would be a good scope for it and how powerful?
    I would really appreciate some advice. thanks!

    Yeah, it would be accurate enough. How much do you want to spend on this scope?

    As shay has stated, price is indicative of what you'll end up with.

    However, more so, use.

    How far do you plan on shooting from? What small game? Details man, details!

    I would also say the rifle is most likely more accurate than the shooter.

    I'd suggest Bushnell, Leupold, Nikon would all be good brands for scopes. Trijicon is making some great scopes now I hear with the Accu-point systems, but they're pretty expensive. I'd go with either Bushnell or Leupold as my personal preference and get a good 2-8 or 3-9x40 scope and you can't go wrong.

    I like a 1-4X or 1.5-5x scope on a hunting AR.

    But they should be accurate enough for more magnification. My son's AR has a 3-9x on it.
