The best toys are "assembly required".
The Aimpoint is a great choice. I’ve got some pricier ones but the Aimpoint is one of my favorites.
I've had a few Aimpoints, but I've grown kinda fond of these PRO's.
This was supposed to be a "before, after" thread but, unfortunately, the "after" has been put on hold for a few days. A few minutes after the "before" pic was taken, I was installing the barrel and my ancient mil-surp barrel nut tool gave up a gnipple and when it broke, one of the still intact gnips took a nice chunk out of my D-ring. A quick seach through my spare parts found just about everything but a D. So now I'm in a holding pattern until the USPS lady drops off my new ring.
Aero Precision is sure a good starting point !
I've used many different brands and I'm impressed by the fit and finish of these AP's. As long as I can get them relatively cheap, they will be my new go-to brand.
I bought mine back when all they sold was uppers and lowers and even the blemished models were really rather nice and low cost .
I have one waiting to be assembled as well, as soon as I get an "Operation Enduring Freedom" receiver from PSA.
My daughter wants me to build the next one for her on one of these:
I like the Aimpoint PRO. It’s not too expensive and you get a hell stout red dot. Sure, it’s heavy but there are options for lighter mounts.
Some dude had a house fire that destroyed the rifle. Amazingly enough the PRO still worked. He sent it back to Aimpoint and they gave him a fancy new model.
I have like Four or five PROs myself.
I saw that, i think I would have kept the AR the way it was and put it on the wall.
My last build has a FastFire on it. Small and light but it doesn't give me the warm-n-fuzzy that the Aimpoint does.
I've been thinking of doing my next suppressed SBR with one of those. Just as an FU
Yes, the theme receivers are fun. Kind of a nod to Woody Guthrie's "this machine kills fascists" guitar.
Done. Well, at least until the remaining parts come in (sling swivel, GG&G short VFG and rear BUIS, Surefire...).
I know these are cliche and done to death but, my first AWB sunset celebratory build (with parts collected in the years prior to the sunset) was a parts bin special "M4" and I've always had a soft spot for them. I've built a bunch of middies since but this one is all mine.
AWB sunset parts bin Franken4. (Bushy barrel, Ameetec lower, Del-ton upper)
I had a Aimpoint T1 that had a coating issue. Sent it back to Aimpoint and they sent me a new one in a few day to a week. About 3 months later I get a package in the mail from Aimpoint with my repaired T1. I called them and told them of their mistake and they just told me to keep both of them. Aimpoint fan for life after that.
