Anywho, is that one have the SOCOM medium contour barrel? Hows it shoot? You ought to throw a Daniel Defense rail on there and Surefire 3 or 4 prong to do a M4A1 Block 2 cloneOnly the best for me. I know, it's pathetic, but a cheap buzz. That with the McCafe coffee, I figure they deserve one another.
I should have mentioned that I had only one of a very few negative experiencs at my private gun club, members only.
So, the Steel Plate shooting crowd was out doing their weekend match and they always take five of our wonderful outdoors shooting combat pits.
I set up, first open pit, next to their first stage.
I start my M4 drills, warming up then moving over to double-taps on a torso target, I empty my last mag and turn around to find one of the steel plate shooter guys literally glaring at me. I say to him, "Good morning, something I can help you with?" He said, "That's pretty loud." And I said, "Yes, it is, ain't it great? How about you just go back to your steel target shooting?" He walked away.
Steel plate competitions are fun, but these morons think that because they can put a round on a large steel plate at 15 yards they are somehow shooting NINJAs. LOL.
I put another 600 rounds downrange fully satisfying my monthly drill standard with my AR and then went home. Enjoying the fact that I was upsetting the FUDDS.
its nice, I could have done with out the lines on the side but I wanted the correct scopeHow do you like the scope?
I was looking at those (and still kinda want one since it looks proper). I got a NF 3.5-15 for my Mod 1 build based one pic of it in the wild. Close enough for now.
looks good, looks like it works darn good, judging from that hunk of port that it's leaning against. My only other comment is that your scope mount doesn't look to robust, but as long as it works and holds zero...AR I built.
I'm jealous of everyone's photography skills, haha
$40 scope mount that has been hauled around and bounced around in a janky mule 4 wheeler for the past 2 years. Continues to hold its 0 pretty well. I was just walking around the property when it pops out of the tall grass 20 yrds in front of me and takes a step towards me. Dropped with a quick forehead shot and helped feed my wedding guests last month.looks good, looks like it works darn good, judging from that hunk of port that it's leaning against.

The Athlon Argos BTR 1-4FFP mil/mil is a good deal for what I paid, about $225. It is very bright and the reticle is almost as useful as my SWFA 1-4HD scopes which is to say awesome. FFP and a well designed reticle work double duty, red dotish on 1x and usable mil reticle on 4x. My SWFAs are FFP as well, the one you’re mentioning is not.@Lawless
How has that Athlon held up? I like their specs for the price but keep turning to the SWFA 1-4 non-hd to fill that role at the price. Any comparison?
Role is to be atop of my wife’s 16”, basic AR. How is the illumination. I’d get her a RDS but she has an astigmatism so its a no go.
Definitely requires repetitive training to get fast going into the right position.My 1-6 I used to have was great, but I feel I lacked speed up close with it. For a DMR/SPR scope I think it’d be awesome. Also kinda heavy at 22.1 oz. for a fast carbine. Slowed down the rifle.
