Any idea if it can mount a bipod via sling swivel? Thanks.

Doesn't have any sling studs installed.
It comes with rail sections you can attach anywhere on the fore end you want.
You could use an adapter that attaches bipod via picatinney rail that way.

For the money, heck, it's probably worth it to bring extra batteries with you -vs- dropping the bucks on an Aimpoint/ACOG/Eotech/etc. Good job.

So far its still on the first battery and going strong after nearly 2 months. I've used it a fair amount at 2 carbine side matches, several range trips, alot of dry fire practice, and have forgot and left it on a few times (it shuts off automatically after 6hrs)
It has 5 brightness levels in normal mode. They state battery life is 120hours at maximum brightness, which doesn't sound like much, but that is super bright and easy to see at noon on a sunny day, about the only time I need max brightness.
Battery life on minimum power is listed at 3400hours and is perfect for low light/nighttime use.
It also has 2 nightvision levels listed at 4200 and 4600hrs.
Have had no shift in impact through @ 1000rds, and so far it seems like a real solid piece.

AR's look like so much fun. I have a hard time wanting one since I played with the crappy ones in the army for so long.

My last year we got new m16's, I was out before I ever got to shoot it, but I did clean it many times.

Well Build one that suits your fancy. It's the army, did you really expect them to let you play with the cool new toys unless you reupped?
