Is your RRA a bull barrel, if so I say suck it up and get a nice scope, if not take off some of the unneccessary accessories and add the magnifier, I think you will love it for most things past 100 yards.

And both the magnifier and holo both have quick disconnects...
How do you like the magnifier? Do you often shoot past 100 yards? What about the holo... have you disconnected and reconnected it? Is it still dead on, or do you have to adjust it a little after removal and replacement?

I love my holo... Eotech is awesome... I have the 2dot which gives me an auto adjustment shooting a hundred yards and over... I'm zeroed in at 50yrds with my holo center dot which puts me pretty close on my second dot at 100yrds and over... With the 3x magnifier flipped up really helps at that 100yrds and over... I can also see the target better @100yrds to adjust the holo after each shot to zero back in, but I tend to adj my shot, according to how far it's off rather than adjusting wind and elev... That away I'm not constantly adj at the range... I generally shoot at 100yrds... Not too many taken over that... Only removed it once and it was really close when I put it back on.

What brand QD mounts do you use? I've found that LaRue Tactical QD mounts are superior in the fact that they hold a perfect zero after you remove them from the rail and reinstall them, at least in my experience.

Hah! Yea, he bought it new from a dealer late last year. Maybe he'll finally get it back after he gets off the outage he is working (7 days/week/nights). I told him he could either pay me back or I'll give him a couple dollars and he can give me his AK. Would look really good next to my AR.

Do you shoot it more than 100 often, or just every now and then? I looked at a couple of EOTechs, but I finally decided on the Aimpoint PRO 2MOA. I like the simplistic single red dot, and found the 65MOA circle on the EOtechs to be too "busy" for my liking (although I think it would be great for CQB). Aimpoint has a similar 3x mag that comes on and off as well. I've been waiting to get it, but it's not on the list of things to do just yet. I would like to purchase another rifle, like a .308 or something to do longer range shooting. The 5.56 ARs are very capable weapons, but they just aren't 300-400 yard weapons. Not that they are unable to, but lets face it, those rifles are really designed for closer engagements. I'm very undecided on my next rifle, but I'm going to start looking soon.

I also have the EOTech EXPS2 with the 3X magnifier (the pics below are the 512 I borrowed from my older AR).

It really comes down to preference, but I like the "2 eyes open" approach. I can quickly acquire targets, without losing my peripheral vision. Then for longer shots I bring up the magnifier.

I'm also going to build a .308 at some point...probably a Remington 700.

Thanks. I'm very impressed with it. I really wanted a piston AR, and after loads of research settled on POF. They use a corrosion resistant NP3 coating, which allows you to run it completely dry. I took it out of the box and to the range without doing a thing. Ran 200 rounds through it without a hitch. Very easy to clean as well. Definitely a top notch weapon.

Man...not even going there yet. Once I've decided on a .308 I'll start doing some research. I figure I'll end up spending more on the glass than the weapon, which is the main reason I'm not in a hurry.

Lol I hear ya. I have seen some decent scopes that don't break the bank. I know in the long range I will wind up buying a nicer scope. Prolly settle for a cheap one for now.

I like the 2 eyes approach as well. There's no problem with that using the Aimpoint either. But yeah, it's preference more than anything. My red dot is at the forward end of the rail... maybe just a little farther forward but about the same as where your EXPS is. The EOTech was just a preference of "too busy" on the 65MOA ring. I found it a little distracting. I do like the slightly lower profile on those though. I was hesitant about the PRO at first, but it's not nearly as bulky as I thought it would be.

I don't know what I want for the .308 yet. But I really want something that's accurate and reliable for the 3-400 yard range. The AR is just not that weapon. Your gun is beautiful though. I like the silver lower. Is it polished or anodized?

Now if your putting it on a match system with a more precision twist you may want to move up into a better scope. You have to factor in your MOA for your gun as well. It really depends on a lot of thing that would take me hours to go into, but if you have the time I would be glad to help. Post or PM me your build with your grain and I can match you to a great scope under any budget based off of what you want to use it for.
