I still want a pic looking through the Aimpoint. It looks like the FSP or FSB would block the dot with the mount he has.

No, but he says in the video at around 3:58 that he is a "representative" for Maxim Defense now.  Although of course he really, really likes it and it's the best stock ever and the Department of Defense should buy it, etc.

Correct. If I remember correctly he said the gun has pretty much remained the same but was a fan of those stocks and changed it out.

Are you saying the dot is not obscured or are you saying he uses it as an occluded sight?

meh, not so much the case. its one thing to have the housing as a ghost image but i’d prefer to have a less cluttered view. probably why lower 1/3 mounts are so popular.

he just ran what he had, doesnt mean its right.

BULLSHIT!

Without a two point sling that single point would have failed long before 14K of rounds outbound.

Get real. Never rely on a single point when there are so many points available lol

I'm sure the fact that he's a paid spokesperson for the company has nothing to do with it.

I'm saying the FSP is not a problem on that gun or 2.8 gazillion others just like it. Take that any way you want to. but the FSP is not a problem.

If you are seeing the FSP while using a red dot, you are doing it wrong. Unless you lack stereoscopic vision, you shouldn't be seeing anything other than the target with a dot on it.

If you are sighting through it, all peepy eyed like a conventional magnified optic, you will see the FSP  as a ghost, but if that is how you are using a red dot, you should just put a magnified optic on.

What’s the story with 88 Tactical?

Seems like an easy leap for some libtard to associate them with the Neo-nazis.

I have never seen another AR15 on ARFcom with a mount that low and a fixed FSB. I have to think there is a reason for that. Absolute cowitness is as low as most people go.  People who can use the BAC might be fine with that low of a mount however. Not everyone can use BAC unfortunately.
