i started this in january 08' with the stripped lower on a group buy and i just got optics today so i can call it finished.....until i start upgrading parts :thumbsup:.
its been a long and arduous journey (read expensive relative to my income). i did all this on a university student/part time workers budget. i dont care if you flame my frugality, im just happy to be "Range ready". its not for home defense (thats what my second remmy is for).

stag-15 stripped lower
stag lpk (standard)
stag 3h upper
yhm carbine quad rail
magpul ctr stock
magpul pts MBUS
ergo grip
off brand (really bright) flashlight
some hong kong aimpoint clone (its my second and holds zero like a charm)

also i would like to mention my "poorman's storm case" is the box that my remmy 870 bird gun came in. i cut the styrofoam to fit all my appurtenances as well as the assembled rifle.

let me know what you think.

Why not slide the front side all the way up for the added sight radius?

I'd first get a bore sighter and roughly adjust the aimpoint clone and iron sights to it. You said you adjusted the front sight post to match with the red dot. How do you know if the iron post was more correct then the red dot? maybe the red dot needed adjustment and not the front post.
