I'd have to agree Todd.

I think the Primary Arms or even the Bushnell TRS-25 'clones' of the Aimpoint Micro aren't too bad for entry level. In fact until recently Daniel Defense had a value priced law enforcement AR that came with the TRS-25. That DD would use the Bushnell on their rifles says they had some confidence in it. I've had two TRS-25s over a year and no complaints. Don't know how it would handle .308 but it seems all right with 5.56.

One little thing, start off with a standard carbine buffer, if you really want a heavy buffer, get them both at the same time. I wouldn't recommend that you start off the a heavy buffer.

I have a carbine 3.0 buffer and it has cycled all the ammo so far. What would a heavy buffer do for me? Less recoil?

Um.

Not really less recoil, a heavier buffer slows down the timing so there's less percieved recoil (as its spread out over a long period of time).

What you are trading off is slower cycling and potential feeding reliability, for smoother cycling and less perceived recoil.

Its a trade off.

Go too heavy and things start to short cycle, and follow up shots get a little too slow. When I first started playing with timing I started out with 4 different weight buffers (c H H2 9mm) and played with them. Just remember every guns a little different, so each needs its own tuning.

IMPO if you want less recoil get a brake or compensator. Way more difference, and honestly better bang for the buck.

Have fun!

I had a PA micro dot peter out on me about 3 weeks ago after roughly 3200 rds , something was loose in it , it would still work but at the right angle it would shoot about 3 ft high . Called PA they sent me a RA # and it went back , received a new one a week later but after a slight mess up " shipping the first one to a unknown business 1500 miles away left me with no mount as they put my original mount back in the box because they were out of that particular model " Anyway I have the new Seekins mount heading this way to go with my new Micro . Great people at PA , great customer service, and great products .
Marshall and his crew do a fabulous job keeping everyone happy

Looking good is the sparc perfectly co-witnessed or is it higher than you front sight?
