Looks good to me.
Geissele Automatic?
I picked up the combo deal discount on the SSA-Enhanced from Xtreme Guns for this purchase.
I just couldn't turn down the SSA-E for the $100.00 upgrade!
I'm doing a swap out on the SBR, for a Fostech Echo Trigger that I just received, then moving the SSA-E over to an "old school" M6A2 6.8 16 inch hunting rig.
I believe the Echo and Six8 A5 SBR, are going to make a great pair.
Also, with the SSA-E in the hunting rig, I believe that life for the South Carolina Whitetail, just became a little more precarious.

Campy,

Sounds like you've made some nice upgrades, to an already outstanding platform.
Very nice, Sir!
I am considering the MAWL for future purchase as well. Best in class, IMO.



Pathfinder,

Thank you. Can’t wait to get the MAWL and red dot. Trying to decide Aimpoint T series, Trijicon MRO or Vortex Sparc/AR series.

I vote T2. Sport optics has a 17% off deal going on with the Aimpoint MRD's. CC- REDDOT17 :yup:

In my experiences the Aimpoint Micros are the best red dot regarding battery life, ruggedness and reliability. But they are also the priciest. Our SWAT runs the MRO on their commandos and it has proven to be a good optic but the battery life hasn't been as good as advertised. We have sent three back to the factory for various reasons; killing batteries and some of the tines that hold the batteries broke. I have a personal MRO on a Six8 that has been great.

Campy,

I would have to give the nod to the T series, as well. :wave:
I really can't speak against the others, as I have no experience with them. I've never found a good reason to stray away, from what I already had.
The T series truly is a set it and forget it, when it comes to my HD application.
I keep mine running on the 7th power setting and then do a battery swap annually on my Birthday.
This process has worked for me for quite a number of years and the Aimpoint has never once gone down.
Of course, they may all three do that.
I posses a ton of faith, in what I've already seen to be proven, so I therefore trust in my T. :yeah:

I’m leaning towards the Aimpoint. I don’t shoot it a lot at the moment. I’ll most likely get the T-2.

I hear ya Big Dawg. If you were to give those jalapeño and cheese snack stick an honest try, that herd would might be in jeopardy. :grin:
The sticks and the whole loins are a family favorite around this house.
Kinda got me thinking now, that I might just have to go and curl one up around the feeder this coming season, with the new shorty. 8)[/quote]

Have not shot one in years, self employed, busy all the time. It's really not fair out here either.

Friends bring me snacks, deer burger, backstraps all the time.

Now go show 'em whose boss!
I'll just sit here quietly and play with my new rail panels...........

Very nice. I'm going to throw my vote to the trijicon mro though. I've got 3 of them and have no complaints, basically an improved aimpoint and its trijicon. On a side note can you remove the piston cup and piston rod on yours? Mine is really tight maybe just because of the short barrel but on my other lwrc's I can get them out pretty easy.

How would you change out the spring then? Try a third arm. Pull the BCG. Sitting in a chair, put the stock between your legs resting on the chair, pull down on the intermediate rod while you have someone hold the nozzle. Hold the compressed piston rod down with one hand and pop out the intermediate rod.

I'll give that a try thanks.
