FYI, they are releasing the StrikeFire 2 and Sparc 2 with the same MSRP of the previous models.

The difference between the old ball player and the new ballplayer is the old ballplayer cared about the name on the front of the jersey, the new ballplayer cares about the name on the back...
like it a lot for the price i paid. 2x magnifier helps a lot. i heard a lot of negatives about the flip up caps, but i don't have any problems with them. btw, i have the red/green version.

Default What I did to my AR's

Since I live in the PRoC ( Peoples Republic of California), I did what a good sheeple should do. I took mine fishing with me one day and lost them when the boat capsized.
All my evil "30 clip magazines" went with them too.
Since DeLeon said mine would empty a "30 clip mag in 30 seconds" I couldnt afford to shoot them anyway.

Seriously tho. I just added a 3 power to one of mine and a military surplus Aimpoint Red Dot to the other one.

Scope was $439.00 delivered. Already had the mount, but it's an expensive one.

Not too bad. You need to have a good mount though.
