    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.

    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!

    yeah shopping isnt done yet got one or two more toys the rest goes to the wife's horse fund *sigh*


    those are on the rra varmint rifle she thought she wanted until she tried to lift a similar one lol. the weight was more than she wanted

    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

    BCM ftw!

    By the AK shooters that wear flip-flops or the AR shooters that want to follow you home and 'help' you break down your gun?

    Wife and i are going next weekend to bust some clays. Cant hit the trap range cuz she has a walking cast atm broke chips of bone in her ankle tripping on a hose at the horse barn :( but a new vid is a great idea of the saiga busting clays with a red dot.

    Lol you should see the hate looks i get when im outshooting the ar guys with a 80 year old mosin!! One guy last week running a stag with a bsa reddot, the bsa pretty much disintegrated on his rifle. He was pretty mad. I really wanted to suggest buying a vortex if he wanted a good cheap dot optic.

    Yes, you did. I love that gun, as you know, and I'm very thankful to you. I'll quite complaining now. :D

    Jon, I'm still kinda reeling... Two BCMs in a month! I've fallen behind by one. :p

    Oh well I do have a DD to go with my BCM - which does put me in the "1 is none, 2 is 1" category. :D

    Anyway, way to go... and thumbs up on the new purchases!

    Jon,

    Well my friend you sure got your points in today didn't you! :D That is a nice looking weapon for sure and I am sure she is very pleased with it as well as the Old Man! Let us know when you get the accessories added on and lets see her first Range Report! Looking forward to it. Good Job!
