OK, I'm really excited because I finally got the money for an AimpointML2 and have two questions.
1. What is a "kill-flash" and should I get it.
2. Where's the best place to order from. price being important, but service is a really big plus?
OK, that's really 3 questions but any help would be appreciated

The kill flash eliminates the reflection of the glass downrange in a combat/tactical situation. For ordering I highly recommend [url]www.SWFA.com[/url] or [url]www.MSTN.biz[/url] Great folks to do business with. Excellent service and turn around time. I get my orders in no more than 2 business days from these guys. Edited to add: Before you worry about an ARD(kill flash) it's important to look at mounting solutions. I assume this is for an A3 flattop? The Aimpoint QRP rail grabber is an excellent,rugged, no loss of zero, SOPMOD issue item. ARMS(#22 M68 w/Cantilever Spacer), GG&G(Cantilever Mount), Knights Armament Co(Cantilever mount) make equally great mounting products. You can't go wrong with any of them. Also it's very important to get a BUIS(back up Iron Sight). Look no further than the ARMS #40 for great cowitnessing.

definately figure out (if you havn't already) what mount you're going to use. i bought my aimpoint at a gunshow and didn't know the mounts were $$. the gg&g cantilever is nice but the ARMS 22m68 is cheaper and if you ever get a SIR rail or something you won't have to get rid of the other mount like i did. if you don't know if you need the killflash or not than don't get it.

do you need a mount? If so GGG has a special where you can order an aimpoint comp M2 plus a GGG standard mount for $440. Definetly a steal. i believe the cantilever package is a few dollars more. the kill flash is not needed unless you plan on doing some "urban ops" in your neighborhood there site is [url]www.gggaz.com[/url] and click on specials

I second Hoplite's recommendation. If you can, go with the package deal from GG&G. I have their standard Aimpoint mount, and love it. It's rock solid, and has the compartment for a spare Aimpoint battery. Now that's a GOOD idea!!
