So I just got a decent pay raise at work (20%) so I have a little bit of cash to burn now...at the moment Im torn between buying a couple receivers or buying an optic like an ACOG or an Aimpoint...

Any thoughts...?

I'd spend my money on lowers, mags and ammo. Optics will always be available.

Solid Advice!!!h.gif

A couple of High Quality, NIB AR-15 Receivers might
fetch a purty penny in the next couple years.

+1...NObama may well be on his way.  Get lowers, stocks, mags, and ammo while you still can.  ACOG will aways be there.

+1 to stocking up on the essentials if you can.

Aimpoints and ACOGs are just for optics snobs...






Ok, Ok... I'll quit prodding you.

I'd say buy ammo.  Right now there are some good prices out there that we haven't seen in a while.  I'd take advantage now.  Ammo rarely goes down in price.

Plus, if in the future there is some kind of import ban, or new tax on ammo, etc. You'll be allright.

Even the fanciest rifle is just a paperweight without ammo.

Saving it maybe?

Help me spend my money.

This is what "redistribution of wealth" means to me. Not taxes.

Just want to see if this Trijicon stuff is as fancy as you all say, or just a beefy NCStar
