    The quad rails are sharp as crap and it has no forward assist BUT it does have a free floating barrel. If you can handle those sharp rails or plan on adding a fore grip, I'd say go for it. Could you find a better deal? Well there's always a better deal out there. But that's pretty cheap for a Mossberg MMR. If that's what you want I say go for it.

    Just saw what you picked up.
    I hope the carry handle is removable?

    If so, its not a bad configuration due to the quadrail included and a seemingly decent buttstock

    Not that you asked but, I would suggest selling the red dot and possibly getting a scope for the carry handle rail. The carry handle co- witnessing with your red dot negates any advantage a red dot gives you(parallax free, both eyes open). The irons don't have a bright red light but will serve the same purpose. The scope on top would add magnification for further shots. Also, getting rid of unnecessary weight up front is always a good thing. Personally, I would also swap the two piece quad rail for an MOE with polymer rail sections, again to minimize forward weight.

    And your solution for low light encounters would be...........?

    Congrats on the rifle. I like an A1 configuration as a keep it simple platform. I had less than pleasant experience with Olympic. Hopefully they have improved.

    red dot won't help much in low light anyway. Your eye will naturally focus on the dot making it harder to see the target that is already hard to see in the dark anyway. Best option for low light. Flash light or go big and get nv

    ...you've never used an optic with an adjustable reticle and a mounted light have you?

    I agree with the red dot co-witnessing the sights on the handle. The purpose of a red dot is fast target acquisition. Co-witnessing it with fixed sights just brings you bak to square one. Only now you have a little red light annoying the crap out of you. I do however like red dots I opt for the red dot and x3 magnifier on a flip mount. Best of both worlds.

    My solution for low light encounters is usually..........light. Unless its the type of low light encounter initiated by the wife. Then the solution is a little different.

    "Common sense" is wrong. Standard setup for our entire agency is some form of a red dot sight and a mounted light. We use several different ones, all have adjustable brightness. Neither myself nor any of the guys I work with have ever experienced anything remotely like what you are talking about with or without the mounted flashlight engaged.

    The flashlight affects night vision WAY more than the red dot when it's properly adjusted. What IS basically impossible is getting any kind of sight picture at all with iron sights in low light. Unless you are backlit. In which case you are also a silhouette.
