However I don't know how it works for charging for assembly lol, but still $600 for assembly seems insane.

Thanks for the info BTW.

Only the Mk18 rail and to cut the barrel down.

Is $300 a good deal for a used tan 553 marked su-231? The marking is faded. Can you stil get it refurbished? Found it stashed at a local gun show.

Cheaper than I'd let mine go for.

@OilfieldTrash78

What spring and buffer? You should probably be using a Colt spring and H3 suppressed with 5.56.

Should I rock the DD upper ( Matches very well surprisingly...) or wait for a similar colored colt upper to pop up on marketplace?

H2 is currently clone correct, but that doesn't mean it is the best choice for his rifle.

If you have an H and an H2 you can make an H3 to try out. I personally make sure my rifles lock back not just on 5.56 but also on Federal .223 55 gr so there is a little extra gas.

New "beauty" shot. Forgive my crappy skills....
Link Posted: Yesterday 12:50:08 PM EST
So I ended up getting a used 553/SU-231. Got home and cleaned it with some windex/hoppes, and the "SU-231/PEQ" marking was not worn/faded and came out brilliant. My question to anyone that has one of these, my battery cap and hood do not have any sort of Eotech markings other than the yellow laser sticker. Is the typical or this a special version? Thanks in advance for info.
Link Posted: Yesterday 1:06:25 PM EST
Guys with risers, which ones are you running? I know Wilcox has one but I don't have the Eotech magnifier so I won't spend that on the riser without it. I like to shoot "head up" especially with my nods. I found the Weaver Tactical online for about $50. Just wondering what you guys are running

here is my current setup.

I was told by the guys at TNVC that the A3 is a better unit than the APTIL-C in terms of features if I remember correctly. I got my A3 back in 2015. One feature is that you can zero your visible laser and it will zero the IR laser at the same time. I also believe the Ir illuminator on the A3 has more adjustments than the APTIL-C? I got the A3 mainly because the APTIL-C was out of stock and I wasn't into clones yet. Call TNVC and speak with them. They'll set you straight.

The APTIL-C is clone correct unless you can get your hands on a PEQ15a (never seen one for sale) or a real PEQ15 (run about $2000?) or LA-5 ($3000?).

I don't think there is a clone-correct one per se, but I'd try to stick with a quality manufacturer. We have seen the LaRue LT100(?) used on both M4s and HK416s, the KAC has been spotted on a variety of guns, and I have seen a super-high A.R.M.S. riser (#54, 1.5" rise ) used on old-school CQBRs with EOTech 551s/552s (check out the Instagram profile for sofsurvivor). Those are all going to be pricier options. TannerB posted a pic on Instagram showing a Leupold riser that looked pretty nice and is a bit less expensive than the KAC or LaRue.

ETA: here's a pic of the 1.5" riser (on top of a SIR no less)

That means it's a legit SU-231. Mil 231 and 231As do not have any other markings other than the designation. No L3 or EOTech logos.

A bit OT but I received my 80% lowers back from anodizing and had no issues. So hopefully that "problem" is currently only local to USA. Does anyone know what the outcome of that ordeal was anyway? It seems the thread was nuked from the legal section.

The OP was going through and deleting his posts, so I would assume he probably had a MOD nuke it so there wouldn't be anything to use against him should he have to go to court over it.

PSA had a good deal on all sizes and colors. I picked a few up at one point for some bros in this thread.

As far as PEQ15's you can track them down for $1000 - $1300 every now and then.

Probably one of the "Law Guns" Eotechs still floating around. I WOULD NOT send it in to Eotech as they'll most likely confiscate it as stolen .gov property.
