Here's my first AR. :danceban:
Nice. The Glocks look like piglets that are ready to feed off mama.
A "moving" picture of the latest addition during the "first firing" session:
I touched it up with a little Aervoe Sand dusting on the receivers yesterday. I'll have an M4s and hopefully at least one T1 again within two weeks.
Rifle looks great painted, Jon. Sucks to hear about you're things being stolen.
Other than being lighter and smaller, is there any big benefit to the micro over the M2/ML2/C3/M3/ML3 type of red dots? I've been considering going to a T-1 or H-1, but can't justify it. I'm really only interested because they're smaller and more slender. What made you want to go for an M4s instead of a second micro?
My reason for the M4s over a T1 is that it's a free loaner! I've owned an M4 and it's a great optic, but I have no reason to buy one over a T1. You'll hear some mention the tube size being bigger on the M2 - M4, but the inside diameter isn't all that much different. Also, the T1 has a smaller footprint, so at least for me, it disappears with both eyes open a little better than the Comps do, if that makes sense. Also, the T1 is now available in 2 MOA instead of just 4 (3.6 actually).
I'll get a comparison pic of the inside diameter in the next few weeks. The difference in weight is quite noticeable, especially when running a magnifier.
I'm a huge fan of these and have been running them since prototype. They snick nicely into place and almost feel like they're assisted after they break in a bit. If anyone ever orders any, mention my name and they'll take good care of you.
Here's the 45 degree CASS-3p. Below that is the standard Bad-ASS with a hybrid right side lever. Notice the difference in the way the levers are attached. I much prefer the dovetailed CASS-3p. I just switched back to the 90 degree selectors from the 45's, but I like them both.
Actually, in the first pic, the rifle on top (not the SCAR) has the 45 degree CASS-3p and the one on the bottom has a standard 45 degree selector. It may be hard to see the differences now that I look at it. The CASS-3p slides on and is held by a screw. The standard just sits in place and is held by a screw. It would be almost impossible to sheer the dovetailed model's screw.
Contact Roger (the owner) at Battle Arms of you're interested and tell him I told you to call/email him. He'll help you out.
Running an M4s for own place of the M2 while I wait to get new T1's.
