Thanks, Rowdie. I shot a few rounds through it while it was still stock, but not since the additon of the rear flip up or Trijicon sight. Next week I'm taking an AR refresher class since it's been about 17 years since I qualified as a sharpshooter with the Army Reserve.

Very nice. I'm going to need to sell my AR and get a new one now. :)

There's a very super outside chance I will be hitting ARC on Sunday afternoon. If you are interested shoot me your phone # by e-mail and I'll let you know if I'm going. The in-laws are visiting but if they leave in time I plan to go ... just haven't informed the spousal unit yet. lol.

Let me know. I need more practice for Griffin which is coming up soon. I'll try to be on time. :)

Very, very nice, Michelle! That's my favorite Magpul rear stock...

Since it's 5.56, that means that you can fire 5.56 NATO and also .223 caliber, right?

Does your sight mount raise the RD sight so you can use the metal sights in case the Trijicon sights batteries go dead? I forget what it's called 1/3 something.

I'm itching to hear how you like shooting it...

_jb, I'll answer in her absence. Yes in a 5,56 you can shoot .223 but supposedly not the other way around. And the 1/3 is a variable of co-witness.

correct :) the 5.56 NATO round is the same in every aspect except the pressure level and velocity. both are higher than the american .223. most AR's nowadays will fire both, and indicate such on the barrel with "5.56/.223".

1/3 co-witness...the Trijicon has tritium/fiber optics and doesn't use batteries...so no worries for about 15 years. If you look at the 2nd picture that I posted, the red dot was right at the top of my front sight post. It looks a lot better in person than in that picture though. Here's a slightly better picture. The dot is pretty bright outside with the filter adjusted correctly.

Thanks for the pictures, Melissa. I didn't notice the red dot in your first picture, but can see it in your second one. I don't know why, but I was expecting the red dot (reticle) to be in the center of the scope.

If you lift your head up from the centerline of the BUIS, does the red dot always stay in that position... the lower third?

The Trijicon rx01nsn isn't really a "red dot" sight. The reticle is etched in the glass and has tritium and the fiber optic to illuminate it. The dot does not "move" like a regular red dot style sight.

The AimPoints use a red LED to reflect the "dot" off a lens, so when you head moves the dot stays on target and "moves" position on the lens.

EOTechs work the same way, but with a holographic laser image reflected on the lens.

If you turn or angle the rifle up or down a little, the red dot is not always in the center. I'm going to take the filter off to see how that affects the sight.
