I've checked their site, Brownells, Midway, Optics Planet, Tag Firearms, Rainier Arms, the local forums, the Facebook groups, and Reddit.

Thanks! I'll dig into their stuff. I've been out of the game for so long it's really fun to just browse websites to see what cool new stuff companies are making. I recently learned about Radian.

I also run this ASC slick-side upper receiver on my 7.5" 300 BLK with an AERO lower receiver. Love it!

Strike Industries is definitely a solid company as well.

Thoughts on absolute vs 1/3 cowitness? I've got a Colt 6920 that I want to put an EoTech on but leaning towards absolute cowitness with rear BUIS.


Also, anyone have experience with Australian SS109 surplus? I want to run heavier ammo through the 1:7 barrel and I've only purchased Lake City M855 in bulk when I lived in Florida.

Strike Industries makes some nice stuff - and good company to deal with. I have a lot of their stuff.


How many use optics on their EDC? I'd thinking of trying it and wondered how much of a difference I would feel with the optic. Digging in, etc.

I'm old and my eyes are shit and I'd like something I could use without without glasses and with either of my RX (close/far). The sights on my P365 SAS are better than anything I have used before, but a dot would be even better.

What are you horror stories before I drop $700 to try.

Strike comes to our academy and gives us discounts. Love it!

Optics work wonders. Our range team has found shooting accuracy has improved substantially now that we allow optics on our duty weapons and off-duty weapons. I don't have an optic on any of my pistols, but I may consider it down the line. All of my partners with optics on their Glocks, Staccato's, S&W's, etc. love them.

Finally got the suppressor and optics mount for the MP5. Would like to go to range today and zero in the optic but it isn't to be.

I have a little LCP I keep in the car. Adding a laser grip (Industry discount - nice) I bet changed my groups by 50%. Those little guns are hard to shoot well, but taking the sights out helps a ton.

My eyes are shit. At any time of the day I might be no glasses, reading RX glasses or Distance RX glasses. I want to be able to shoot well in any condition. At least a milk jug at 25 decent anyway.

I'm prob 80% of that without glasses with the SAS sights - which is pretty good, but I think a dot would get me to 100%. Just wonder how they would work with appendix carry. I think I'm gonna try a P365X Romeo when/if I find one in stock. I can always sell it.....

Appendix works fine with the proper holster. I haven't heard any complaints from those carrying appendix with an optic.

I used a Veracarry Zerobulk Pro - I have fallen in love with it and would used it for the opticed version too. I think it'll be fine.

That's a cool design. I use something similar for appendix carrying my Shield and my P365.

Found a purple unicorn KAC RAS optic mount so a Aimpoint T-2 will get mounted and a KAC claw as well. Will post pics as the upgrades come in.

Also forgot how much 16 genuine H&K 30 round mags cost. Ouch.

Everything HK costs. Because it's worth it.

Where do you go shooting? I usually go east to Usery Mountain.
