Yep, this one is a flat top. That handle comes off and there's a rail underneath.

Yessir...the legs are spring loaded and independently height adjustable. They come rocketing out at the touch of a button. Functionally it's a pretty sweet combo. My goal is to try the front of the rifle as light and simple as possible.

That's the spirit! The AR-15 is the patriot's weapon of choice.

I notice you don't run back up iron sights with the ACOG. With a fixed 3x scope do you any trouble with target acquisition at ranges under 100yds?

See, that's what I'm worried about...picking a nice powerful scope then being screwed in the event that I ever need to pop something at close range.

Meanwhile:
Magpul MS2 Multi Mission Sling and Ambidextrous Sling Attachment Point (ASAP) arrive this week.

Took me about 400 rounds to break-in my AR-15, which sucks in California because I'm limited to 10 rounds at a time before I reload.

Actually underneath the ACOG, there is a foldable BUIS. Not the greatest, but it works. I was looking at a Diopter type rear sight, but want to do more research on it.

With the ACOG, I would say anything over 50yd is fine, but I never really measured to be honest, so I would say 50yd give or take...

Today...was a good day.

Woke up, dumped another couple hundred rounds through the AR and got the new optics dialed in. Then hit up a local spot and picked up a T-bone with all the trimmings for lunch.





Newly added since last time:
Daniel Defense QD rail mount sling attachment point
Leupold CQT 1x-3x Scope w/ illuminated reticle
Larue Tactical QD scope mount
Magpul "MBUS" back up sight
Magpul "ASAP" rear sling attachment plate
Magpul "MS2" multi-mission sling

At this point I think this project is pretty much done. I can't think of anything else I really need. As it stands it feels like a pretty solid goto rifle.

Any suggestions on spare parts I should keep around??

oops...

Hit the target holder while doing double taps at 100yards. The bullet punched a hole in the steel, sprayed hot lead all over the paper and kept going.

Bushmaster sells a "spare parts kit" here, about half way down the page. It comes complete with every spring in the ar, even the buffer spring. I ordered one but I doubt it will arrive anytime soon. Your rifle looks "very evil" . By the way, are you guys in NY required to have a bullet button, or is that for California ARs? For us here, we can have a rifle full of evil features, sans grenade launcher, as long as we have a bullet button installed.
