    There are a number of decent dot sights - Doktor, C-More, Eotech, etc, but they're all more than $100. You can gamble on something cheap, but I'd just use your iron sights until you have enough for a quality dot, or decide that irons are good. (I personally like iron sights on my ARs.)

    I just got back from the reange.
    Hot Damn, I'm buy another one of these rifle. The whole experience was like a wet dream all over again.
    After sighting it in at 25 feet the 25 yard,50,100 then I went to 200 yards.
    All I had was iron sights and was able to keep the shots inside a sihloette with an eight inch impact ring. I shot about 60 rounds at 200 and had 51 of them on the paper. It took a minute to find the target, after adjusting the sights I put 25 out of the remaining51 in the impact ring.
    I am truely impressed with this rifle. Cheap ammo, 16.5" barrel and a half ass bench rest. What more could you ask from it?
    Mext will be a match grade upper with a big nasty scope. FUN FUN.

    Oh for heavens sake, don't do that with a match grade barrel. I know it's a blast to go cut loose with 200 rounds, but you need to break a new barrel in. Breaking them in is a pain, but your rifle will shoot better for your efforts.

    I bought this barrel used. The next barrel will have to be broke in.
    By the way how do you brake in a barrel?

    Alot of guys do it differently. I clean mine after every round for the first 25 rounds. Then every 3 rounds for the next 100 rounds. (PITA) After that, I only clean when I feel the need, unless I'm in mud or rain. Usually 500 rounds for a semi and 100 rounds for a bolt gun.

    well if I go to my neighbors - maybe he'll let me use his 24 inch wide screen monitor.

    as for me I just have to scroll a touch to the side with my 19" monitor.

    I'm on a 32 lcd in my living room with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
    I'm a full time student on an online college and want to be comfortable for reading and homework.
    How do I get these pictures smaller for you all to see better.

    What will happen if I don't break in the barrel?

    I just recently got an new EOTech 512.A65 off Ebay for $277.00 shipped. Its the real deal too, not some china made POS replica.

    So save your money and look around, you may just find one like I did. They are worth the money.
