I've got it narrowed down to either the Stag Arms model 1 or 2. Model 1 http://www.stagarms.com/product_info.php?cPath=13_22&products_id=205 Model 2 http://www.stagarms.com/product_info.php?cPath=13_22&products_id=206 I really like the carry handles for some reason. But EVERY single person I've talked to has went on about how I'll want an optic eventually etc, etc. And I know backup sights are a must when using a optic, so I don't know whether to just get the model 2... The thing is I really would like an optic but just hesitant to throw out 350-400 on a Eotech 512.... So should I get the Model 1 and call it a day or get a Model 2 with an optic such as a Eotech 512 or hopefully something cheaper and just as good?
