Anyone use Holosun optics?

I ordered one with an ACSS reticle from Optics Planet. When I got it, I could see a faint "ghost image" of the reticle. I sent it back for refund and ordered a different optic. Apparently a number of those particular optics had the same problem.

What are you using it for? I usually abide by the "buy once, cry once" mantra on optics and stick to the big three: Aimpoint, Trijicon and EOTech. You can find great deals on used MROs.

Bought both of mine used with mounts. Very good prices.

Thinking about putting it on a Foxtrot Mike 9mm AR pistol for home defense. I like the idea of the reticle coming on when motion is detected.

I saw the InRangeTV guys put one on their rifle experiment where they created a newer modern version of the M4/M16 and they said it was a good optic.

Alabama Arsenal reviewed one on YouTube. Shoots it with bird shot, freezes it, tosses it on the air...worked after all that. Should be fine for home defense.

I have bought 3 of the circle dots. I can pick up the reticle faster than ACSS. Primary Arms had them on close out for $139.

CMMG 9mm RDB and there 30rd ARC mags.

I have apparently been living under a rock because I just saw this. I can’t stand glock mag 9mm ar15s. No offense, it just doesnt look right and I have aproximely 2 glock mags

But this ARC kit from CMMG makes me have major wants. Anyone have this setup...does it run well?

Edit looks like it just came out? That’s on the short list now

Make some in 45 and 10mm and I will know what to do with all the psa lowers I just got

My guess was "looking through order to see why they sent me an upper instead of a lower"

Aero makes good stuff at good prices. If only people would order from them more instead of PSA.

Built a .22 pistol with one of their uppers, without the forward assist. The barrel was such a tight fit I had to coerce it in with a mallet. That sold me on their products.

A little drinking and web surfing with a sale netted me the idea of a who dat nation build

Don’t have a 18” anything, match style .223 Wylde setup at the bottom of the lake yet...and I like black and gold.

Why the LW BCG over the regular one ($100 cheaper)?

You could've gotten custom engraving for $10 too: LINK

re: Official AR-15 thread
I plan to have an adj gas block and run the magpul UBR gen 2 stock. That stock is able to run the A5 buffer system in it that's supposed to lessen recoil some. The ADJ gas block and the LW BCG will also help lessen it some (less moving mass). Heavy barrel...just trying something different and make it a smoother accurate shooter.

The place I bought it from had the barrel and BCG on sale too so I didn't pay Faxon prices for it. Because of that I was not able to get a head spaced matched engraved bolt. Also Faxon is out of the LW BCG so I couldn't have gotten them matched anyway unless i waited for the LWBCG to come back in stock...but run the risk of the one time run barrel getting sold out. The 16" gunner version is sold out now.

If there is issues i'll swap out the bolt but I don't know that Faxon usually has issues like that
