And because its extremely in-demand. I might keep the upper, but honestly I can make a few hundred on it immediately because people can't get it for months. Why wouldn't I take advantage haha?

Option 1: Sell the EOTurd and buy an Aimpoint

Option 2: LaRue Tactical LT110 mount

Just so I'm 100% sure...you don't need to use an FFL to ship an upper, right? I can just use UPS?

Funny enough - I tossed .223 ammo on the bill when we were picking up dog stuff at Gander Mountain. She still thinks the AR-15 cost $500. She also stopped and picked up 5.56 ammo the other day. She's also willing to pick up pmags if they come in and im stuck at work...

I think I'm sitting OK for the time being...

I would list it as a "barrel assembly" if they ask for a description. Some shipping locations are staffed by idiots, and so if you put "rifle upper receiver" on there, someone could have a cow about it. When I ship my lower receivers from the UPS Store to get engraved, I list them as "aluminum machining components".

I heard great things about aim point and will get that... But how will I mount it with iron sights? Does it sit in Line or over top/above?

Btw could I theoretically buy the upper from the DDMK18 and mod mine to short barrel?

It will likely end up north of 400 though per 1000 given shipping costs. I need to know that a 10-20 dollar swing won't dissuade anyone cause I certainly don't need that many rounds myself lol
I'm out at $400 unless you can get back to me with the specs on it.

Just attach it to the rail. In front of your rear sight, and in back of your front sight.

You can send anything but the lower receiver to another individual.

you can do absolute co-witness where your irons and red dot are in line, or you can do lower 1/3 co witness where the irons sit in the lower portion of the red dot. this is achieved by bases of different heights.

I received the two selectors this week. I went with standard/long thin on one and standard short/thin on the other. He also included two short levers. I have not had the chance to take them out yet though. Have you tried any of the other combinations?

The first set i bought came with 3 levers. Standard, short and long thin i believe. I installed the long thin at first and didn't like my finger rubbing against it. The short one doesn't interfere with my finger or rub against my hand at all if that makes sense. But i haven't tried a lot of the levers. i might order a few different levers to try out though

No need to order them, just send one back with a request for a different one and Roger will mail it to you.
