Thank you! I like it alot, its a very clear magnifier. I made the mistake of buying a sightmark and its not very clear compared to a EOTech or Aimpoint magnifier. The ARMS or larue slip to side mounts are very good the sightmark ones are not so good. They (sightmark) flop around when the magnifier is flipped to the side.


magnifier flipped to the side:




when the magnifier is directly behind the sight, it helps to have the controls on the side of the sight and not behind as the magnifier will get in the way.



Hope this helps.

Very nice setup, goretro77! Thanks for the great pictures too.

My humble AR doesn't compare to all of yours, but here she is.

I added a Larue rail to free float the barrel and I wanted to add a light.








Its final form:
