The Weaver I was looking into was the V24 6-24 x 42mm with a fine crosshair reticle. MidSouthShooters.Com has them for $362, but they are on backorder. I believe they also sell the GrandSlam cheaper than MidWay. Actually they sell everything cheaper than MidWay!

Ok, I'll give midsouthshooters a look. And just got back from the range. I'll post some pics when I get done cleaning the gun.

Ok, I went to the range today but decided not to go through the trouble of posting the pics because the groups I shot today were just that bad. There was a pretty strong wind, but I think the main problem was the trigger. It was very gritty, catching really hard in certain spots and it was hard to tell when it was gonna break. But at one point, the range officer came over and was asking me how my groups were, I said horrible and that I thought it was the trigger. He said he hears that a lot about AR-10 type rifles and told me to take some 0000 steel wool and polish all parts of the trigger. Now this may be something that those of you "in the know" all know about, but me, being the noob that I am, knew nothing of it. But let me tell you, I did what he said after I cleaned it, and man, did it ever help. I don't know that the trigger is any lighter, but it's so much smoother, has a nice crisp break that I can feel coming and even seems to be a little shorter. I thought it helped enough that I'm gonna get out my other AR and my 10/22 and do the same thing to them tomorrow. For any of you that haven't done this, I would definitely recommend it. It only took me maybe 30 minutes to take everything apart, polish it and put it back together. The steel wool only cost me $1.50 because I work at ace hardware, but normally is around $3.00. Well worth the time and effort in my opinion.

Good deal! What exactly did the steel wool do? Remove the finish?

No, the finish is still there. All the parts are just, smoother, I guess would be a good way to put it. They don't feel as rough as they did. I wasn't sure exactly what parts to polish, so I did everything.

Nice groups on the pics. I am a AR noob too and will try the steel wool thing this weekend. As I am still in the process of building mine, it will give me something to tinker with while I wait for $ and parts. It sure as heck can't hurt.
