Don't really need much of a scope in the mall, but that muzzle device could be a real lifesaver.

Why would you need any kind of magnification for shooting cans in your back yard? That is the primary function of a rife like that isn't it?

OK, am I looking at an AR lower on a .50 BMG upper? If so, the answer is because someone wanted to build it for a buyer who wants a relatively inexpensive trigger/grip/stock assembly. I think it's great then!

Even Hoss almost bought a .50 just the other day but they didn't have ammo for it...

It's an armalite AR30 with a cheap red dot on it. It runs about 3K.

Unique, never saw or even thought of that combo. But an acog will go good with anything, even steak, the red dot on the armalite is under kill, but also I personally think a 1000$ scope on any .22 is overkill unless its for competition.
