I can't make up my mind about two huge decisions regarding my AR and I would appreciate some input. First off, I love the Aimpoint H-1 specs. I love the durability, battery life, and I especially love the weight. There is only one problem, I simply do not like the look of it on an AR. My choice is between an H-1 and an Eotech 512. I want to be able to magnify the red dot without having to use a cantilever mount, so these appear to be my best options (I'm not interested in an ACOG). So I guess it really comes down to weight vs appearance since the other differences (battery life, durability, cost) aren't large enough factors for me to base my decision on. My next issue is my upper. I have a lightly used BCM M4 16" upper. I want to remove the fixed front sight post and put a DD low profile gas block on and a DD Lite 12" rail. So I'll have $390 in the rail and $60 in the gas block plus cost to install everything (anything else I'm missing?) and I'll still have a used upper with a carbine length gas system. I can buy a new bcm middy with the rail already installed for $875. So do you think I should just sell my upper ($400?) and buy the new one or put the money into my old one? I've been pondering all of this for some time now and cannot seem to make up my mind. Let me know what you guys would do and why. Thanks Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
