I've been using this in central Texas and have never once thought it was any less than adequate for whitetail deer, hogs, or coyote. Added perk of the slick handguard is I'm not able to self-sabotage by adding unnecessary stuff and adding weight.

Man, I know where that stand is, and I have hunted the powerlines a few miles away with my MWS.  That is just crazy.

That’s a riot! Not my stand btw- it’s the guy who owns the storage units and the land near by from RT 1 to the corridor.

Man, I need to find someone near me who can take me deer hunting...I've never been and I keep meaning to go, but year after year I don't get around to it. Anyone want to take a 30 year old kid hunting?

This would be my go-to hunting rifle

Upgraded both my ARs with Geissele BUIS:

Attachment Attached File


As before, gun on bottom is my GO-TO. Current description:

Rifle: Geissele Super Duty Rifle, 14.5" (P&W), 5.56 (duh)
Iron Sights: Geissele BUIS set
Optic: Vortex Crossfire on a Geissele lower 1/3 height T-1 mount
Sling: Magpul MS1 sling with Midwest HD QD swivels and Magpul M-Lok QD sling mount
WML: Streamlight Pro-Tac RL-1 on a Magpul M-Lok cantilever scout mount
Bottstock: Magpul CTR


The only upgrade I have left is to change the optic to an Aimpoint T2. That's going to be way down the road.

Has Geissele had any of their BUIS for sale lately.  I bought an FDE Set a year ago.  If I had known they would be as good as they are I would have bought several sets...My opinion,  Geissele BUIS are probably second only to KAC & LMT BUIS.

Here’s an updated photo. Just picked up an Aimpoint PRO. I need a sling and a light. After that, should be good to go. Any recommendations? Would like a light/mount. Plus a two point sling.

I think I’ve posted this before but..



My go to for anything and everything.

Geissele SSP
Colt 6933 barrel
Toolcraft BCG
Everything else is self explanatory.

Easily my most light and handy rifle I own.

Still working out a solution for getting the magnifier up a bit as it is offset from the optic due to being a 30mm tube. Works fine though.

Yeah brother, I owe you one big time.  Thank you!  I was able to get 2 sets in Black (which is the color I needed) never would have known to check in the Blem section without your tip.  I'm actually surprised they were in the Blem section.  HOW DID YOURS LOOK, ANY NOTICEABLE BLEMS?  Either way, I've never bought any Geissele Blem that wasn't perfect with the exception of the "Geissele Gray RE's".  Those were in perfect condition, but they were not Grey.

Actually, the only items I have ever bought from Geissele that was not perfect were the gray Buffer Tubes.  I had to order 3 to get 1 that was gray.

Brother, if you want to go "Deer Hunting", hire a Guide.  Unless you live in the mid-west corn fields, it takes a lot of time and knowledge to get to shoot deer regularly.  I live in Maine, very hard hunting (for big Bucks at least).  Took me years to figure it out since I didn't hunt with My Father.  I have always wanted to hunt with a Guide in Illinois or Ohio.  Big Racks, little effort!

Thank you sir! I have the rifle set up for SHTF at the moment with as many capabilities as I can fit on it. I hope to add a FP peq15 to it one day.

For hunting though, I like to keep it simple with a sling and scope. At 1.5 on the low end the FOV is not great, but I shouldn't have any trouble finding my target without the Aimpoint. I'm setting up my blind for a measly 40-75 yard shot. Honestly, I'd be fine using irons, but I want to gain some practical experience behind the scope as this upper is one of my go-to recces.
