    Here she is. Nothing too exciting...yet. only thing I did is put the Magpul flip up rear sight. (Boring so far I know but it's a start.)

    ...............and too far forward. Put it on your AR so that the thru-bolt goes through the most rearward slot on your upper. Peep sights work best when closer to the eye.

    BTW, welcome and I have heard that Delton's are good shooters. Be sure to give us a range report when you get out and shoot it.

    You know what's funny about that, my shop guys were messing with it all day trying to irritate me by stripping everything (they succeeded, both ex-marines btw) and one of them said they'd throw on a rear sight, and I'm like oh cool thanks. Pretty much brought it home, took it out of the box and took a pic and went to bed. Didn't even notice it. Thanks for looking out for me. Ill fix it when i get home.

    When properly mounted the MBUS should look something like this in the stored position: :cool:

    My AR-15. Got her set-up and took to the range. No pics because we were shooting steel and cans. I didn't even have to zero my Bushnell TRS-25 red dot in. It was right on the money. Very happy with the results. Whatcha guys think?

    I like the green. I almost went with that color but decided on the dark earth from magpul

    Nice looking set up Josh. Glad you're having fun with it. But a video at the least?

    No! I'm such an idiot. I'm not even kidding with the red dot. My first shot was a can at 100 yds and it shot up in the air! I know I know, no proof just my word so you have to trust me!
