Wow I just switched it. Much better. Thanks who knows how long I might have went with it backwards. I shot 50 rounds of 223 Federal,Remington and Wolf. The BCM bolt carrier is a little stiff. Meaning the bolt ,you have to push it to the back position and pull it forward. I guess with time it will slide smoothly.

What do you guys prefer on Red Dot Sights? Micro or Aimpoint Clone? I'm looking $170 or lower. I have two picked out micro $170 and the Clone is $110 I will be shooting at 120 Yards or less.

It's not supposed to just slide back and forth freely. That's your good to go gas rings that are keeping it sort of stiff. If it just slips around freely, you need new gas rings.

I've never had experience with the clones and what not, but I hear primary arms has a good cheap micro that normally stands up well to easy to moderate shooting. Not quite that cheap though I don't think.

If your talking about pushing the bolt into the bolt carrier by hand with the bcg out of the gun that is how it is supposed to be when it is made to spec. It feels wierd because most ar15 arent made with that attention to detail. So if your used to other bcg the bcm one does come as a surprise.

As for budget red dots the best out there that isnt aimpoint is the vortex sparc and vortex strikefire. Ive got both and they are pretty tough for a cheap optic. Ive had both mounted to my 458 winchester magnum elephant gun and they refuse to lose zero. Right now the sparc has found a home on my saiga12 and the strikefire is on my m&p 15-22.

Vortex has a no bs garuntee they dont care if you bought it from your best friend's cousin's sister's boyfriend or new in the box they will fix or replace the optic no matter what happens to it. Plus its a wisconsin company with a great rep for customer service.
