They also do not dimple the barrels for said gas block either which is a whole nother issue.

Does anyone have any advise or suggestions on an affordable, durable, and reliable CCO. I don't really want to brake the bank on the optic. Thanks for the advise.

Vortex Sparc

They can be found all over the net. I bought one from Palmetto State with ten pmags for $200

I have a Primary Arms Advanced Micro Red-dot on my 'beater' ARs. They're not like my Aimpoint T-1s, but I have not have had a problem with them at all so far and they're like ~1/4 the price. Plus I've had the things in the "ON" position for going on 3 or 4 years now and they're still running on the same 2032 battery --- just like my T1. Dunno what makes a CCO a "CCO", vs a "micro red dot", vs a "reflex" sight, vs a "red-dot", vs [insert other optic nomenclature here], but they've done really well for me and internet users also report they hold up for them as well.

Thanks. I have heard of Primary Arms optics just haven't really had any experience with them.

So shoot it with irons for a year and you'll be in better shape. No problem, other than dealing with patience.

That is true. Patience is the one thing I have always had trouble with. I am running Magpul back up sites now so maybe I will just do that. Thanks.

I recently purchased this from Brownells- https://www.brownells.com/optics-mou....aspx?psize=96. I did some research on it and asked a couple of guys for feedback and everything was positive. It has good battery life, uses existing Aimpoint T1/T2 mounts should you want other options and has a 5 year warranty.

In addition Brownells has a 100% guarantee as well.

With that said, I have not used it yet, but I have a feeling it will perform just fine.

That sale price is seriously attractive... I had planned on buying a sparc.. but for $139 I might just give this one a try..

With the discount code I had, I got it for 129.00 delivered. It showed up today and I mounted it on a Geissele Automatics lower 1/3 Co-witness mount I grabbed on sale. I did not win the Powerball, so don't ask.

After 5 hours of work the build is complete. I did loose the detente for the safety, so had to make a new one but other then that no problems. Runs great. Just need to break it in. Thanks for all the help early on.

ARs are fun to build, just use good quality parts and do some reading about assembly first. Have built a few and currently working on an A1. Mostly for nostalgia because it's what I carried when I was a mean teen, wearin' green.

Yep, been beating the crap out of the compact Wolverine model.

Pros:

1) Cheap.

2) Have not broke it yet.

3) Easy to use.

Cons:
1) At higher setting Dot is not crisp like Aimpoint or other brands.

2) Mount rattles loose with heavy use.

I have been using one as a beater optic for under $100 USD I can't bitch. Had it in the cold left it in water overnight and it still works. Been holding zero through all that. I do have a hard time seeing the dot on higher settings. The dot kinda "smears" out I wouldn't trust my life to one for playing at the range it does ok.

Hope that helps you.
