    Question for Aimpoint owners

    I have never seen of heard of anyone with that problem. As long as the illumination is turned up to an appropriate intensity, no one should ever have a problem seeing the dot.

    You can get 1" rings with the LT-204.

    Bushy Red Dot

    Steve, after looking at it and looking over the specs, my opinion is that it is a cheaply-made Chinese optic and priced accordingly. $49.89 should be an everyday price, not a sale price. To me, I would buy a Bushnell TRS-25 instead of buying one of these. Then again, I would not even buy a TRS-25. If you are looking for an inexpensive red-dot, check with Primary Arms or sign up for their e-mails. They will have some good sales on red-dots on a regular basis. I recently bought one of their Primary Arms Micro SLx for $130. You can also get some the HOLOSUNs on sale for about that. Even PSA will have the VORTEX SPARC and SIG SAUER ROMEO 5 on sale for around $130 every now and then. To me, $130-$200 is a good range for decent quality red-dots. That said, Primary Arms has their Classic Series Gen II Removable Microdot Red Dot Sight for $89.99. A Primary Arms co-witness mount (lower 1/3rd or absolute) is available for another $24.99. I had one of these several years ago when they first came out. Good quality optic for the money. https://www.primaryarms.com/primary-arms-microdot-with-removable-base-gen-2

    Scope height

    Steve, bear in mind that when someone mentions scope and references rings and mounts, they are most likely talking about a riflescope and not a red-dot. When a riflescope is mounted, it is impossible to co-witness iron sights with them regardless of the mount. In most cases, when a scope is mounted on an AR with a FSB, the FSB pretty much disappears from view through the scope. Now, red-dot optics are a whole different story as co-witnessing can come into play. Here is an example that I own of an AR with a FSB with a scope mounted. To get proper eye relief, the scope has to be mounted in that a rear sight cannot be used unless the scope is removed. Here is an example of one of my AR without a FSB and a scope mounted. Again, the scope is mounted such a way that the rear sight is rendered unusable unless the scope is removed.

    One day, maybe I will do a .308, although I really do not need another .308. I want to keep my ammo stock down to a minimum amount of calibers. One day, I would like to get a bolt-action sniper rifle in .338 Lapua.

    I have not used this one yet, but I did have a Micro back when they first came out. I liked it just fine. The Micro SLx is a bit more refined and I expect it will be an excellent optic. I can already tell that the glass is better quality than that on the older Micro.

    I wish. All totaled, of the ARs I have built, this is about #90. In the collection, it is AR-15 #47.

    Well, I finally made use of the completed lower assembly I had. For months and months, I have had a McKay Enterprises lower that I built up sitting on my shelf trying to figure out what to do with it. Since it was in a basic configuration, my first thought was to do a simple M4 type build. As time went one, I deliberated about changing it up and doing a more of an upgraded build. After Christmas, I made a decision to just do a simple and inexpensive M4 type build and bought an Aero Precision phosphate M16 BCG and ordered a PSA 16" Carbine Length 5.56 NATO 1:7 M4 Nitride Freedom Upper (No BCG or CH). I also ordered a Primary Arms Micro SLx and absolute co-witness mount. I did utilize a charging handle and MAGPUL MBUS sight I already had laying around. Here is the finished product. I need to get it to the range next week to see how well it performs.

    67yrs young and i want one

    I have to agree with several others about the PSA option. Your money can do more for you in that you can choose the upper assembly and lower assembly you like and get them for a really good price. Many of them already have free-float handguards. Upper assemblies are available with and without BCGs (bolt carrier groups) and CHs (charging handles). Some uppers are even available with MAGPUL MBUS sights. The lower assemblies are available with a variety of stocks and trigger assemblies. 16" upper assemblies https://palmettostatearmory.com/ar-15/barreled-upper-assemblies.html?caliber_multi=2304&upper_barrel_length=1380 Complete lower assemblies https://palmettostatearmory.com/ar-15/lowers/complete-lowers.html PSA and Primary Arms offer a variety of red-dot optics and scopes for really good prices.

    Scope height

    I would venture to say that all cantilever have an appropriate height. In your price range, Primary Arms is your best bet. You just have to make sure that you order the one with the correct ring size (30mm or 1") for your scope. These mounts are priced at $59.99. https://www.primaryarms.com/Brand+Primary-Arms/MCategories+Scope-Mounts

    Colt MT6601

    They do not. 20s are nice if you are doing a lot o f bench shooting. 30s have tendency to be too long when bench shooting. Of course, that all depends on how high you have it supported. Here are a couple I recommend. https://www.brownells.com/magazines/rifle-magazines/magazines/ar-15-20rd-magazine-cs-223-5-56-prod71747.aspx https://www.primaryarms.com/magpul-pmag-20-ar15-m4-gen-m3-5.56-nato-magazine-black-polymer

    Colt MT6601

    Call Colt for the date of manufacturing. 800-962-COLT (2658) You have a very nice shooting Colt. As far as ammo goes, any good quality 5.56 NATO or .223 REM will be just fine. With the 1/7 twist barrel, you can shoot anything from 55 gr. up to 77 gr. ammo. In regard to magazines, are you wanting to stick with 20-rounders or pick up some 30-rounders?

    Midwest Industries makes good stuff and a Criterion barrel is one of the best.
