Question about that scope..

I don't know how to explain this but is the red dot always in the correct spot? Meaning, if i have my eye a little left would I be shooting everything to the right and vice versa? Or, is the lens curved to somehow compensate if the shooter isn't looking dead on?

Great build.
the CTR would be nice but is it worth the $300-200?

i don't quite understand your question but...
the dot will stay on target as long as you don't move the rifle
but if you move your head the dot will appear to move in that direction but it'll still be on target if that makes sense

lol no no, it makes sense!

I guess what i'm trying to say is, if you spend the whole day sighting it in with ur eye directly over the barrel. If the next time you shoot it and ur eye is 3 cm to the left...will the laser still move to follow the target?

Hold your finger out in front of ur face, now without moving ur finger move your head from side to side..if your finger is the red dot then you're aiming for something different then what the red dot is covering.

Default Magpul CTR stock

took hillbilly's advice and picked up a magpul CTR stock
there is definitely a noticeable difference
the other stock shook and rattled
this stock is rock solid and silent

That's a damn fine looking build you have there Padwan - You are just about ready to graduate to Full Blown AR Knight at this rate.

Where's my NEW range report with the free float fore end and the CTR Stock?

breaks out calculator...ahhhh...those red L.E.D. numbers still work ....trying desperately to come up with some calculation as to how present day college kids can come up with enough dinero to afford all those doo-dads and doo-hickeys on that really nice AR...yet has now run out of moolah to go shoot it man, back in my day....well, nevermind...i think 'ol eugene stoner (no, that kind of stoner either...although who knows) was still refining the AR. kidding...i'm not that old. just somewhere between pre-cambrian and jurassic

just kidding junho. i agree...all the mods you've made to it look great.

i've also thought about adding a CTR to one of the kids in the safe, just can't decide which one to put new shoes on yet, or what color shoes, for that matter. after all, one must be dressed for success when contemplating zombie aeration
