Re: Need advise with first AR

Ditto on grabbing them fast. Today, on armslist, a guy sold two Stag stripped lowers for $175 ea. in a couple of minutes. Lots of companies list those lowers for $129-139, but everyone is sold out and with no eta on new shipments. I don't own an AR yet, but am trying to get a hold of a couple of lowers to keep my options open before I have my options taken away either by my governor or the feds. My thinking is they will ban the AR's, AK's and other high capacity semi automatics including pistols, but that the parts will be available for quite some time. I think we are losing the the war on preserving our gun rights.

Dont mean to hijack your thread but i have had a rock river on order for almost 2 months, called them today and they have no idea when it will be in. Just a heads up. Wish you the best of luck

Re: Need advise with first AR

Hey guys thanks for all of your help. The surge to buy AR 15s was insane but I was lucky enough to purchase an S&W MP 15T. I will shoot this a bit then decide whether I need to make any significant changes. But right off the bat the trigger has to go. Any opinion on the ACOG or EOtech for coyotes under 300 yards?

Eotech is sweet not sure about 300 yards but for short range its great. I am currently looking at scopes and quick mounts so I can swap back and forth depending on hunting situations. Im thinking quick release mounts Ive seen them that will put you back within 1/2 moa. Probably m223 for scope.

I love my ACOG. Not so powerful it's still great for CQB, and has a little magnification to stretch the legs. Tough as hell, too!

little spendy though. go green the tritium is warrantied for 12 yrs

You might want to use a regular scope for the longer shots and mount a dot type sight in an off-set mount. I run a Leupy Mark AR on top with a Vortex dot mounted on a 45 degree off set mount. Shoot normally with the scope or cant the rifle 45 degrees for close stuff with the dot. Makes for a wicked yote rig!

I went with an ATH and have had great luck with it for accuracy with 55 NBT's. Call Legal Transfers for the best prices on Rock River.
