Outlaw,
Got word today that our rifles didn't ship, somebody screwed the pooch. They won't come in for several more months. Might have to do a review from Afghanistan.

Bravo 4,

That must have been some pooch screwin! Several months? wow.... no worries, you didn't need to train with it anyway right? I've been beating on mine a little bit as time is limited during hunting season, i've only had it out on 2 or 3 sessions so far with acceptable reliability. I am still testing so I can't say for sure that this is in fact better than the standard Mk4.... be safe over there & I sincerely thank you for your service.

Here is a pic (& a poor one at that) of the MK4 M5-A wearing ARC rings, next to a 1" Nikon Monarch 6.5-20:

I really like the Leupold M5. I will also be testing out a Locking Turret unit.

Mike,


When you get a vid of the Locking Turret model make sure to throw it up, Lowlight has been working on one for quite a while.

thanks,

I will do that. We no longer have an in house video guy work for us so it takes longer to get videos done.
