Thank you.

My point - I have experience w/ the FSP not getting in the way when looking through an optic magnified or not.

Not to get off topic but why Remington?

The is military I believe the Army is transitioning to the remington . That is the primary reason but they look cool. I would appreciate any feedback on the Remington

The commercial Remington AR is basically a rebadged Bushmaster these days. Their M4s for the military will be altogether different.

The M4 Remington supplies to the military must meet Colt's TDP (as demanded by the contract) so basically it will be a Colt not a Bushmaster like their commercial version.
