Congrats - my buddy has a Nikon scope on his gun. I'm curious about the 1-4x magnification. I definitely like the fact you can dial up the magnification or shoot with two eyes open up close. What drove you to get the M-223 over the Monarch African (they're both 1-4x magnification)??

Thanks!!

I actually shoot everything with two eyes open. I'm a righty shooter but I can't consciously close my left eye, and I have no desire to swap over to shooting lefty. It takes a few extra seconds to focus when using a scope but I get by. Shooting irons with both eyes open SUCKS though.

The M-223 has a BDC reticle (only offerred frim Midway) that is calibrated for a 55g round, which is perfect because I shoot XM193 pretty much exclusively.

Evidence of existence of hot neighbor is required.

Hopefully it isn't mounted to the gun while peeping around the neighbourhood checking your 1x zoom! I can just imagine that conversation with the cops if someone spotted you!

Ok, I think I want a Colt 6920. I definitely want avoid the NFA stamp issue. Now let's see if I can find it at a decent price. And how much will the girlfriend be pissed off by that. Part of me thinks greatly.

Just to confirm: I do not need to fill out the ATF Form 4 correct?

You only need nfa if the overall barrel length is under 16" total. Colt 6920 is Gtg without any ATF paperwork.

Of course it's mounted to the gun. You just need to assume the correct postiion to remain unseen.

I really like the eotech...im a big fan of the reticle. I haven't had a chance to shoot it much and only 25yards indoors. I'm hoping to go shoot it at the outdoor range soon but work has been crazy lately(my dad decided to go on a month vacation so I get to do all his work plus mine now haha, I'm glad they went just sucks for me.)

I'm sure you have probably discovered this already, but inside of 20ish yards you can place the bottom verticle hash on the target and have a near perfect holdover.

while i doubt an AWB would happen on a federal level, im concerned my wonderfully retarded state of IL might move on something sooner. That said, im doing a bit more research on simply buying some lowers and holding on to them until i decide to assemble it.

What are some website you'd recommend i look at to buy from. I really dont know what the good vendors are. Every mentions PSA, but what else is there? I understand that a lower is a lower is a lower, so i shouldn't get caught up on brand names.

I think lowers are a good place to customize one's AR15, are there good websites that sell lowers with unique engravings or markings? I like the HK navy pictogram style safety markings, anyone sell lowers with that?

Those guys are at it again. Assholes! It's why I won't buy anything from them anymore. I'm at work on my phone, but pull up the fail pic of theirs (negative savings)
