So you would do a 2-7 over a 3-9 even though the optic is smaller?

I would wager that it's at least 3 MOA or better, but how much better I don't know.
As for optics, my suggestion would be to consider going for as low of a number as you can on the lower magnification range. If you have to use it at short range (under 100yds), having as wide of field of view as possible is ideal. 3x is the highest to go on the low end, but 1x-2x would be my preference.
I guess I could see if they have a 2-7 50mm or something.
Do they make a variable down to 1 like 1-5 or something?
I have a EOTech holographic on my AR, irons on my .223 pump and AK, so I am kinda looking for something normal scope like to have something in each type of category.
