this is an official placeholder for my next build if i can pull it off.

the idea is to do my first build from the ground up. not just slapping an upper and lower together like my previous ebr's but starting with a stripped lower and going from there. now here's the twist.....this is going to be my actual zombie gun. not in the typical gun world "zombie gun" sense, i mean this one is going to be completely and totally literally zombie themed!

and it all started with a magazine article that showed me this little gem.

if eotech is jumping on the z-wagon then so am i. lol

The eye piece is a fixed size depending on the brand and model. The objective end gets larger or smaller depending on what is needed or wanted from the scope. If you want a compact scope then you get a smaller objective lens. If you want maximum light gathering for low light hunting then you want a larger objective end.
Most low power variables have smaller objective lens to keep the weight down.

Not really. A lot of higher magnification scopes have larger objectives for hunting in low light but its not necessariliy tied together. Takes Nightforces compact 2.5-10x24 mm scope.

Will do. It'll be a slow process as funds continue to come in, especially since I have a few other upgrades and changes to make in the process.

Semi-recent photo, but the Scout now resides on a cut-down rail at the 3 o'clock position.

Black Rifle Forum

Planned changes/upgrades currently include BCM BCG and Gunfighter grip, followed by installation of the DD Mk. 18 rail and a possible return to a standard birdcage FH. I like what the KX3 does with blast off the short barrel, but I hate the weight of it.
