I picked up an EOtech Holosight and a 3 x magnifier. Keeping my fingers crossed they line up right.

You spent double what the rifle is worth for optics? Ouch o well not like you can't take them off.

Nothing wrong with that. I know many people that have $1800 scopes on $750 rifles.

I have an $1150 ACOG on an $800 Bushmaster.

The 6X Swaroxski on my Model 70 Win .30-06 cost more than the rifle.

Whatever floats your boat. At least you buy nice optics. You get what you pay for in my opinion and you can't go wrong with eotech. I just remember paying (a few years back) $440 for my wasr 10 brand new. And last year spending almost $500 on my eotech 552 for my ar. I just always thought of an ak as a tommy gun. Kick in the door a mow everything in front of you down.

when I was a kid (back in the dark ages)

The old man that pretty much taught me how to hunt (after I lost my father at 13) used an old "as issued" Kar 98 Mauser he had "liberated" from a German that no longer had a need for it.

When I asked him why he had such an expensive scope (Lyman Alaskan) on a cheap rifle, he shrugged, and said that almost any rifle will shoot straight if it has good sights.

That was some of the best advice I have ever had. I would have saved a lot of money and hassle if I had followed it from the beginning.

I love my cheap wasr 10. Probably put 2000+ through it and never had one failure. Other than steel mags take a little extra love to drop out.

Nice how sturdy is that dust cover mount? And what kind of muzzle break you rocking?
