Default Wife's new AR15

did some shopping today and got the wife a BCM midlength from midwest industries with the lightweight MI free float tube and an aimpoint red dot. she likes the simple put the dot on it and shoot. she also likes the really light weight of this model.

im going to slap some mbus magpul sights on it for backup for her. she hasnt picked a sling yet.





while i was there i grabbed a saiga 12 thats already been converted. cant wait to try it on the skeet range!!

What riser are you using for the Aimpoint? Is it DD? I'm wondering if Vortex Sparc will be able to use the risers or QD mounts available for Aimpoint T1/H1?
Anyway nice good looking new toys!

Wow! What a day of shopping! Sounds like the M16 money's burning a hole in your pocket, Jon. ;-)

Nice buys by the way...

not sure what mount that is it came with the aimpoint. its what midwest industries puts on the ones they sell in their storefront. looked like a decent mount so i said sure ill try it on her gun. ill ask em when i go there next

its a qd mount single point. the screw hole in the pic just attaches the throw arm

i put my sparc on the saiga 12 should be a hoot at the geezer filled trap range
