If your PTR has a rail, you can put any scope or sight on it according to your taste.

If no rail, get a claw mount and pick your optic.

If your pigs are under 100m, a reflex sight may be your ticket.

Scopes are like underwear, you gotta try a few to decide.

If your State has a restriction on mag capacity for hunting you will need to make/buy one of the appropriately sized mags to avoid getting your rifle confiscated by a Game Warden.

The PTR works fine for hunting as long as you don't mind carrying a 9+ lb rifle through the woods all day. Many hunters get along just fine with a 4x or 3-9 scope so a 1-6x24 scope would work and avoid interference with the charging handle.

i may be wrong, but it's my understanding that sig optics are crap. i'd avoid anything with dual red/green reticles.

Primary Arms makes very well thought of optics that won't break the bank.

what would you suggest other then sig?
I run a vortex spitfire 3x on one of my PTRs. That's a great little scope. Not too expensive, vortex warranty, nice fine reticle, also has a removable spacer so you can get it very low mounted.

i'm just not an optic guy really, i prefer irons. i have trijicons and aimpoints and they are great but probably waaaaay overpriced.. i've just read so many negative comments/reviews about sig optics that i wouldn't even try it. people seem to love vortex (lifetime warranty!) and primary though. Save up (like 900 bucks up!) for an accupower or accupoint and you won't be sorry.

The Vortex optics also get great reviews.

I believe you meant to say a red dot/magnifier set up. They can work but personally I would go with a 1-6 scope as it's a cleaner install and faster to change the magnification. Plus you aren't limited to a single power as you are with a magnifier.

Here is an example of a strike eagle mounted on a PTR.

is that urs
?
Yes. My new PTR. I am still working on it. I am configuring it as a dedicated bench shooting rifle. I still need to buy a matching grip, a better bipod adapter, and a scope better suited for precision shooting. The strike eagle is a decent quality optic but the reticle is a bit fat to try and pick out the half inch center of a bullseye at 100 yards. Normally the strike eagle sits on my tavor where it is better suited. The mount is a Midwest Industrys QD with a 1.5 inch optical center.
