I'm going to check that out! Meanwhile I just ordered my barrel. I was going to go with 20'' but I figured it may be too much for my needs. So I ordered this one...

Also, those optics that I mentioned are VERY expensive. Like $1300 expensive. You want to throw on a magnifier and you are looking at over $2k in the sights alone.

Given that this isnt a duty or service weapon, a true Aimpoint may be a little excessive. Hopefully your life isnt going to depend on the AR. There are less expensive, clones of the Aimpoints and Trijicons that can be had for about $500. Keep an eye on the classifieds section of AR15.com. People are ALWAYS selling optics. Oh, and:

Angular measurements
Instead of measuring hold-over in terms of linear distance (inches or cm), it would be helpful to translate those linear distances into units of angular measure. The concept of angular measure is that an angle of 1 degree demarcates 1.7 yards at 100 yards, or 3.5 yards at 200 yards. Everyone with a basic understanding of geometry should understand how angles work.

There are two units of angular measurement commonly used in rifle scopes. The first is the "minute of angle." Dividing a circle into 360 degrees, then each degree contains 60 minutes. One MOA demarcates 1.0472" per 100 yards of distance. The second is the "mil". One mil is one part transverse per 1000 parts distance. In units we understand, 1 mil is 3.6" per 100 yards (ie, 100 yards is 3600", one thousandth of which is 3.6"). Consequently it's also 1 yard at 1000 yards. Alternatively, in metric, 1 mil is 10cm per 100 meters, or 1m at 1000 meters.

Good info. So technically a 1MOA optic would be better than a 2MOA right?

YES! there is no use in building a tight and true 1MOA rifle and then putting shitty optics on it. just hit me up when its time to build the beast. the one piece upper/hand guard is the pimpest shit you can get right now. i dont want to even know the price

Amore Optics pro's around here? I was thinking about buying the Aimpoint CompC3. I dont need a NATO proven sight. I want a good durable sight that wont break the bank. But I also want something that I am going to have to replace soon.

Anyone know who to contact or have any ideas?
