Hey everyone. I love the forum, tons of good info and friendly people that I can tell. I recently bought my first AR which is an Armalite. I have about 500 flawless rounds through it and it is absolutleyl the most fun I have ever had shooting a firearm. I know. I have done some lurking here and I see it is a sin to post your first post without showing some pics so here they are. I took a little hint from some of the previous pics and noticed you have to do a little "artsy fartsy" photography too.

Also, I am looking for a good middle of the road CQB red dot type scope. Any suggestions?

Nice

What is middle of the road to you ?
I'd suggest watch the EE for a used EoTech or Aimpoint.....with a BUIS
if that's a bit much, I'd suggest one of the SPOT red dots, new they go for 150.

Thanks for the compliments guys. After the AR I would have to say the favorite is the HK. Really nice firing .45

As for the scope, I was thinking the EOTedch as well so it's good to hear you guys echo the same idea.

Finally, yes. I bought it right out of the box as you see it. The handgaurd is actually an Armalite rail as well. Has their name printed on it and you can buy it from their catalog. I did a little research before buying but I guess I would ask how the rest like their Armalites?


Thanks.

Hi, and welcome. Yours looks nice! I love my ArmaLite middy - just took it to the range today for the first time. She still has a lot to teach me!

I luv my ArmaLite!

Nice rifle and welcom aboard... I like your set-up and would recommend that you give the Aimpoint and EOTech a try.. I had both until I recently sold my EOtech 551. I just prefer the M2 but to each theri own. Congrats!

You can tell by my number of posts I haven't been here long, but the result was figuring out what I wanted for my first AR and this is how it came out.

Welcome to the board.

On the red dots, you should try Aimpoint. I have 4 of them, I love them.
