Please tell me that you shoot with both eyes open when using a RDS/HWS. If you are, FOV (field of view), really doesn't matter, and there's more mass blocking your view of the dominant eye with the comp m2/pro than with a micro. Sure if you are squinting and only using one eye, the FOV on the micro is smaller, but you shouldn't be doing that with a red dot.

But, the real reason why you'd want a micro over a pro is not the FOV . Its the weight. My micro with mount is about a 1/4 lb. The PRO with its mount weighs about 3 times that. 4 oz vs 11.6 oz. Almost 1/2 pound difference.

Im srue this is what he is trying to say . both eyes open significantly fixs what looks like it does in the pictures , however they are are 3 shot at the same distance on the stock , just a little different positions on the actual optics

This is a design feature of the M16/M4 and of course matters much more for automatic fire but still could cause a slightly out of battery experience.

Anyway that buffer rattle is a good thing - it's the way the rifle should operate.
Thanks Quentin! I watched some videos and see that spikes buffer has slightly more bolt bounce than a standard H buffer but it didn't seem like much. What is a "slightly out of battery experience"?

I'm just visualizing bolt bounce causing the cartridge to not fully chamber because the solid weights aren't present to cancel the bounce. Like when the forward assist is used to fully chamber a reluctant round. Of course rarely an issue in Sa mode but a big deal in FA.

As far as slightly OOBE, usually a misfire since the AR firing pin isn't likely to strike the primer OOB. If it did, well we know that's ugly.

So I got off work 2 hours late today, had a huge order to check in the system. Once I was off, I checked my email and had one from BCM saying their BCG's were in stock. I immediately pulled my debit card out to order one, and they were already out of stock in 3 hours! How often to they come back in stock?

As for your future plans for a supressor.....look at the AAC brakeout and Surefire MB556. Both offer solid brake capabilities and a qd mounting point for respective supressors.
