How are you liking the laser? Obviously good enough to keep it, but what kind of tests have you put it through? The one i'm considering is split 50/50. Half arrive DOA and the other half have had no problems at all. Some people report problems keeping it at zero, while others swear by its accuracy.
Well that gives you around a 25% chance of success, if half of ordered lasers fail to work, and half those that work hold zero.
However most people that order items don't post reveiws, so you have, at least, an ok chance.

PPC, okdonk's stock would look great on your Colt! Really, a quality buttstock, sling and optic and you'll be set.
You're absolutely right, I didn't notice the buttstock before, but now that I am...i love it!

OkDonk...what buttstock is it?

Chandler, it's hard for me to see from that angle, but you wouldn't be using Kwikguard Rail Covers would you?

No...just some UTG "cheapies". I like that they cover about a two inch section of rail, so I can add a bipod or light or whatever, without exposing the entire rail. Plus, I think they look cool. If I were kicking in doors, or fast-roping out of helos I'd prob not use them. But for my purposes, and the price, they are perfect. I don't guess I've seen the kwikguard covers...is that the name brand? Where can you get them?

Just waiting on them to arrive. The thing I liked most about them is that they "snap" into the rail, instead of the pain-in-the-ever-loving-ass method of trying to "pull" them over the rail

Yeah, those look like they would work well. I like the three diff lengths.

I had the PA Micro on my recent build. I liked it and was going to go with an Aimpoint eventually, but picked up an ACOG instead.

I still have it and will put it on another AR or .22 build.

With that said if you bought it for a range toy, SHTF, marksmanship, hunting, etc that will help you decide what you want on it.

I personally keep it simple. I built mine as a SHTF rifle. I have an ACOG 4x on a quick release mount, AFG grip, and Flashlight. My Vltor stock holds 8 spare 123 batteries for the light and the grip can hold two more.



Below is how it was originally built with the Primary Arms Micro red dot. I was going to get the Aimpoint T-1, but wanted a bit of magnification.
