    Noob Eotech Question (pic)

    Hi Guys (and Gals),

    Picked up first Eotech for my first AR-15 the other day. I just have two pretty dumb questions:

    1.)Is it OK to "hike" the eotech forward over the front handguard so that I can fit on a BUIS on the back of the pic rail?

    2.) How crisp is the hologram supposed to be? The hologram I'm seeing is pretty clear, but is a little blurry around the edges and on the edges it looks like a bunch of tiny dots together - not really a solid outline, is this normal?

    Thanks!

    Yes to both.

    The ring may be slightly fuzzy - more a function of your eyes than the sight.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    look at the bottom of your eotech and see the jaws that clamp on rail. You can move it forward some but leave the clamp part on rail. As far as sight, play with buttons to darken or lighten ring, main thing is to get a good clear dot and your good to go

    Don't worry about the dot/reticle - you should be looking at the target! It is pixel-ated, but that's part of the design. As far forward as it can still mount is just fine.

    SOrry for the off topic, but what kind of butt stock is on that AR? Can I purchase one for my plympic arms plinker.

    That stock looks like a pretty standard "G.I." collapsable stock - you can buy them from any number of manufacturers. They should fit on an Oly Arms, but I'd ask the particular maker (and/or Oly) if you're concerned.
