Trick looking scope mount. Which is it, and why so high looking?

Redfield Revolution 2-7x and the height is necessary for how I rest my cheek on the stock.

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

I replaced the same scope on my AR with the 3-12 Nikon Monarch. I need a bit more magnification for my eyes, yet at the low end I can go nearly as low. The Nikon also has side focus to reduce parallax at all ranges and I can fit target turrets if I want.

The only hassle is the charging handle. I have no idea why the designer didn't simply use a left side reciprocating charging handle. The rear handle is an ergonomics nightmare. That alone means I will probably have to get a different upper and a match barrel along with a piston kit.

I put on a gunslinger tac latch and it helps a great deal on the charging handle. never have shot opportunities beyond 150 yards so the 2-7 works for now. If I go out west may have to bump up to the 3-9.

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

My dream machine :

DPMS LAR upper receiver with left side only charging handle (ambi shown in the pic)

MGI Hydra lower receiver that directly takes AK47 magazines and solves the C Products reliability issue


Rifle length piston kit (will require modifying LAR bolt carrier) or the one above to take the reciprocating charging handle.

no-one seems to be making a match barrel for the 7.62x39, so that is a bit of a tough one. The chamber on my 16" dpms is a bit loose (diameter). I would love a 20" to 24" match barrel and skip the muzzle break.

That leaves the usual choices regarding stock and pistol grip.
