  3. So, you spend the money on an SBR, along with all the time and effort, and say it's for "hurricane/zombie" use....

    then top it off with an optic that cost less than the tax stamp?

    Nice rifle. the optic looks like it's mounted backwards though.
  5. 1. no one knows what time or effort I've spent on the SBR

    2. all four of my $100 optics have worked just fine for years
  6. Thanks

    It was made in southern Louisiana. :rofl:

    Wow. Just... wow.
  8. Thanks

    I say the same thing every time I shoot it at 100yds.

    Amazing little gun...LOUD little gun, but amazing. :)

    gotta give a shout out to Primary Arms, too

    their microdot is a great optic for the money

  9. I've never heard of that optic before but it looks like a nice little rifle otherwise. What are the specs on the build?
  10. thanks, but it's nothing special

    It's just a Sabre Defence "Pre-ATF Raid" model. :whistling:

    Had a friend who worked for MagPul so I got a handful of their stuff and mounted it up.

    That's about it.

    Local cop had two of them, and, you know the story: wife said "No more guns till you sell something".

    So, I took it off his hands for not a lot of cash.

    My thoughts exactly. :faint:

    OP just run irons until you save up for a Aimpoint Pro or Trijicon reflex.

    Cheap optics will fail you when you need them the most.
  13. I've shot $100 optics for years without a single failure.

    And with my eyesight I can't see irons.

    But, I hear where you're coming from, brah.:wavey:

    Cheap AND expensive optics will both fail.

    No doubt.

    Wonder which category fails more often?
  16. I'm old and half blind, so that's why I just lay down suppressing fire. :cool:

  17. Exactly. You get what you pay for.
  18. Today's $100 optic ain't necessarily the same as cheap Chino digifails from ten years ago.

    Again, I've used three or four PA red dots and have never had one fail.

    Call me Mr. Lucky. :cool:

    And I've actually gotten more than I've paid for because several weren't bought new.

    Who knows? I haven't had any optics fail yet... :wavey:

    Higher price doesn't necessarily mean higher quality, though I don't have a problem buying higher-dollar optics (mainly for Aimpoint's battery life).

    I'd like to see actual stats rather than anecdotal evidence. We can all give examples of all types of optics failing or lasting based on our own experience or internet hearsay.

    Even the PA mini dots have a 1000 hour battery life. That's something like 40 days of constant on mode.

    For most folks in the world that's plenty. I wouldn't mind having a real T-1 just for the battery life of the unit and will probably have one eventually but my PA mini dot gets the job done and has for thousands of rounds.
  21. Awesome AR!! I also use PA, great red dot and service and they are local. :thumbsup:

    What sold me on their product was when the rep slammed the red dot on the table many times and then remounted and it was still holding 0. :wow:
