It is going to be used strictly as a hunting rig, namely for coyotes. So as of right now I am unable to mount and test it but once I get it mounted up I will put it through it’s paces and add more to this review. This is how the scope showed up to me. This is what came in the box. It includes a cloth with the Vortex SPARC logo on it, an allen wrench for resetting the turrets, the shims for the Zero Stop, a little Vortex SPARC pin, a reticle manual and a product manual, one CR 2032 battery, and a 4 inch 44mm sunshade. One note is that at the front of my sunshade there is a 1 inch scuff mark on it. Not a big deal to me as it will see far worse in the field, but figured I would note this. I’ll begin my review at the rear of the scope. On the ocular side of the scope it utilizes a fast focus eyepiece. It’s stiff enough where it should not turn on it’s own if it’s bumped so once you set it, it should be good to go. Moving on to the illumination knob. It’s positioned at a 45 degree angle off the left side of the eyepiece for ease of operation with your left hand. It has 10 illumination settings.

3/30/2012 3:39:59 PM This also depends on what whether its the actual swiss AR-15 Stock or the swiss “style” stock. If its the american swiss style stock, then anything is an upgrade. The biggest deciding factor should be how it fits you. The real Swiss AR-15 Stock is fixed length with only a longer buttpad available for people with long arms. But it looks best in my opinion and keeps the rifle looking more like its European cousins. Ar AR-15 Stocks allow for much more adjustment and styles. If you need a longer AR-15 Stock because you have gorilla arms, like me, then its a huge plus. You can get AR-15 Stock with higher cheek rests, better sling attachments and heavier for a better balance with the front heavy sig 556. I would try the swiss stock, feel it, decide if you even need to change and then go for what feels right. Have not heard of any AR AR-15 Stocks that wont work with the ddles adapter. Lenaburg

Rifle Slings

2/29/2012 7:30:08 PMWhat does everyone think is the best place to mount the front part of your rifle sling on the handguard…all the way forward towards the gas block or all the way back towards the receiver? The_Hammer 4/24/2012 11:25:51 AM rifle sling mounting is a very subjective/personal thing and what may be “best” for one person isn’t necessarily the “best” for another. It also depends a lot on how your rifle is set up and it’s intended use. I personally like mine mounted like this. I like it mounted forward so I have plenty of room for different hand positions on the handguards. I also tend to wrap my thumb around the rifle sling mount as a hand stop when I’m using the light. henschman

Scope Mounts

9/4/2008 11:06:04 PM I’m probably wrong about this, not a structural engineer, but couldn’t you bevel out part of the folder so that it will go past the mount? The issue of not being able to fold it with optics on isn’t a big one in my book, because you can’t do it with the left side folders either. I was toying with this idea myself just the other day…….

Streamlight

7/30/2009 9:15:48 PM The Streamlight is an LED model, which should give yuo more run tim than the incadecent G2. If you want the G2 LED, your going to pay $65 to $70. Personally, My only Streamlights are keymates- they are nice lights for the money. I also like Surefiresproducts.I own an E2E, a basic incandescent model- which I prefer in incandescent, I have other cheap LED options (converted mini-mag, keymate, etc….). I have also had great experiences with SurefiresCS, even when the problem was most likely my fault. younggunner09

After doing a web search, I found some information on the DCM M14 Scope Mounts program and assumed that some were eventually sold to the civilian market. After the information in this thread, I will forget about that idea, although it impressed me enough to still want a M1A Scope Mounts instead. It felt less stable to me than my AR when shooting off hand, but I was still able to score decent. It got pretty windy throughout the day but I only needed to add 1 click of windage at 600 yds. Naturally, the AR15′s were adding a bunch more clicks and were effected more when the wind changed direction. It was a very comfortable rifle to shoot in general and would love one for a dual purpose hunting and target shooting rifle.

Match and specialized sniper/long range ammunition is far from underloaded.

There are specialized gas plug screws made fro the M14 Scope Mounts type rifle that allow a wide variety of ammunition to be utilized so there is no drawback to choosing one over an AR10 type platform for civilian use and again, a properly manufactured and heat treated modern M14 Scope Mounts type receiver is no less reliable than a modern manufactured AR10 two piece receiver system.

A: LRB Arms. They actually machine the receiver from a steel forging, as opposed to investment casting, like Springfield Armory, Inc. or Fulton Armory. A forging doesn’t automatically make it the best. JJREA [Member] 6/9/2006 10:09:30 PM They are not exactly to spec on all parts, but the receivers are forged, and only need to be properly heat treated to be really nice receivers HUH? Heat treated?
