I have a PRO for my go to rifle and a RMR on my pistol. All my range/fun shit has various vortex/PA/SIG cheap stuff. Aimpoint PRO seems like a no-brainer @ $400 vs a Sparc II or something that costs $200ish.

How does it handle suppressor gas?


Eta: Nevermind. Per the manufacturer it isn't rated for the application OP is using it for.

"Compatibility: For standard mil-spec AR15 only. Not rated for suppressors and /or full auto fire. Not for use on SBRs or pistol length barrels (<14.5")"

https://www.strikeindustries.com/si-ar-slch.html

So he is using it on a suppressed SBR which is like double not recommended.

If the bolt isn't closing off lock by dropping the bolt release, I find it extremely hard to believe the slight extra momentum from racking the handle is going to make a difference- something is wrong and it's going to gum up either way.

Yea, sorry, I'd take a gear sector sling over a VTAC/Vickers.  They are all great slings, but Andrew seemed to get it (quick attachment to multiple rifles, with different attachment types, and even changing from single point to double point).  Didn't seem to sink in with the other guy?

As someone with bad astigmatism, I found that placing a red blob on a target is still just as effective as placing a red dot on a target at 200 yards and under.

I have used aimpoints and still own old eotechs.   Are they really that great?  A circle with a dot and a dot?    They have simplicity, fairly good reliability (not great, especially eotech), and the prices are not horrendous, but if people are honest, much of the appeal is that they are used by the military.   Just my opinion. I would be happy with an aimpoint compM4, but wouldn't necessarily feel like spending that kind of money was necessary.

I’d say you keep an HD rifle because your “life may depend on it” someday.  Reliability should be the aim of the game there.

Even if so, so what?  The example you have might have proven itself durable/reliable.  What about one that was shipped out 6 months after yours?

There is a certain peace of mind that comes with an optic that has been in hard use in large numbers for a long time, especially ones that are manufactured in places with a known track record for consistent quality and QC.

 Zero issue with it and have been so impressed by it I replaced all of my aimpoints with their prisms.  Also helps me out with my astigmatism as well....win win for me

Andrew has a Surefire muzzle device that his Surefire suppressor fits on. The Warden also fits on the same muzzle device. The KAK flash can is works just as good as the Warden, but it is direct thread.
