It seems to be becoming a requirement that every AR has to have at least some Magpul shit on it these days. Not that I’m not equally guilty . . .
The Magpul pistol grip is far more ergonomic. I personally can't stand the A2 grip anymore.Thanks ChuckMK23, it looks more ergonomic than the classic A2 grip.
Nothing wrong with Magpul, it's good stuff.It seems to be becoming a requirement that every AR has to have at least some Magpul shit on it these days. Not that I’m not equally guilty . . .
It had the elastic webbing. I removed it, added the folded-over webbing loops and the shockcord.That's a nicer SV-2/LPU combo that what we had - I did not realized it had been improved at some point - gone is the elastic cotton webbing on the rear replaced with bungie - good idea. Looks like a next gen LPU - with higher quality materials. I was not ever a fan - bulky for what it did and too much mandatory gear - I always wanted a low profile setup that would not inhibit water egress and keep me afloat with basic signaling and IFAK. Never got that.
It was never something that I found comfortable. My first AR started with a MOE. Once I tried my first MIAD, I was a convert. The MOE is nice, but the MIAD fits my hand better with the larger backstrap.The Magpul pistol grip is far more ergonomic. I personally can't stand the A2 grip anymore.
My answer is complicated. First of all, I have two EXPS-3-0 with two G33 magnifiers. I find them to work very well together and I don't have any significant issue with the dot smearing, magnified or non-magnified. The Eotech is a little fuzzy, but I suspect that's just the "laser" reticle versus an LED.I am frustrated with my AimPoint - as my 54 year old eyes render the dot now as a smudge of three dots! I understand EOTech HWS's are immune from this.
BTW the President of EO Tech is a Hornet dude (and USNA grad and a watch guy with cool vintage Speedy) - good guy - although he has not come through with free review units for AW'ers - I will ping him on that.
Didn't want to create a new thread for this - but I suspect a EOTech is in my purchase queue for my carbine.
@Gatordev is the AimPoint still something you are sticking with?
