There are a LOT of random things floating around out there on AFSOC guns. The 10 year old AFSOC thread is still running, just not active all the time: https://www.ar15.com/forums/ar-15/AFSOC-Para-Rescue-PJ-Unit-LVL-Purchase-carbine-discussion-thread/118-555403/

Decided to try out a VLTOR stock and Tangodown grip.  Stuck on what to do about the optic.  Kind of like the Aimpoint, but also like the Exps3-0 (either black like the PJ pictures, or tan for a 1.5/PR), or even an Aimpoint T1...  Any suggestions?

I like a 30MM Aimpoint on these style guns.

Agreed. They're not the most sophisticated, but they work well. Here’s a photo from my Iraq tour. Mine on the right.

ETA: Apologies for the poor quality. Here’s one more from that time period that should come out a bit better.

As much as I agree, I got a good deal on an exps3-0.  Im going to try it out for a bit to see how I like it.

My in-progress block 1. Nothing special about it but I ran it in a class yesterday and it gobbled up crap tula ammo without a hiccup.

Was wondering if it was done to drop the peq2 lower and clear the window on the 551. Doesn’t effect anything, more an OCD thing than anything else.

I would guess that if he didn't have the riser already installed, but who knows.  I ran a 551 and a peq2 back in the day without a riser and didn't feel my view was too obstructed.  Each his own, but my OCD couldn't handle it being upside down unless it was function over fashion.

I'm going to assume the answer is yes to lowering the PEQ, I believe thats why it has two different heights. You're also right on it not mattering with the riser, but he may switch optics.

It's designed to be mounted either way.
Link Posted: 10/19/2021 4:49:59 PM EDT
[#17]
It is "upside down." The rail has two versions a low and a high. High is standard AR height, Low drops the PEQ a little more. It's unnoticeable in your hand on either setting. I prefer a lower PEQ as it also puts it closer to the bore. I'd like to get the direct low profile PEQ mount to make it even lower, but I have other things that are in order.

Even though I just said I was done, I kind of want to add a couple minor things.  I apologize if it has been answered, but I know the PRI gas buster is good for block 2, but is it still kosher for a 1.5?  If so, what latch is recommended?  Same for CQD sling mounts. 1.5 acceptable?

Currently using a bcm mod4 charging handle and IWC qd sling mounts. Didn’t want to use the colt side swivel as I like my front sling attachment towards the rear.  These two items work, but want more of a “correct” replacement.

That’s who I was going to use.  Ended up ordering one last night just for the hell of it—it’s only a couple bucks.  But holy shit, I ordered around midnight, got an email this morning at 6am that it’s been shipped.
