Sight picture is clear; dots are bright with minimal starburst, does a good lower 1/3 co-witness, and seem solid.

Need to test it out but it looks like a keeper.


It's an S&W M&P15 Sport with FDE Magpul furniture, specter gear 2 point sling, pmags, and the primary arms multi-reticle 2moa dot.

How's this for a first AR?

Good stuff, simple no frills. You'll enjoy it

lets hope the dot keeps zero.

I co-witnessed it with the irons (the irons have been dead on from the factory) so it should be pretty good.

i'm thinking i might want a different front sling attachment.

and maybe a light....but the light feels like i'd be going overboard.

PA is good stuff. I have one of their micro dots (H-1 type) and I have been extremely happy with it... it has taken all the abuse (short of being dropped out of a heli) in that DD video with the aimpoint.. and I haven't had to adjust zero once, even with removing the thing to paint my rifle like 30 times.

Lining up your dot onto your irons will get you very close, but not always dead on. You'll probably have to fine tune.

Also remember that if you defensive ammo is a different grain from your range ammo (FE: 55gr vs 62gr Green Tip) your POI will shift slightly at 25 yards. It's ideal to zero with the ammo you plan to shoot next, like when you first start on the range zero for what you're shooting and before you leave zero to your duty ammo if you keep it for defense so you're sights are good next time you pull it out.

Unless you're planning on clearing rooms and shoot at night, flashlight mount, light, and tail cap extension is a waste.

the rifle is mainly a fun gun.

i'll shoot it maybe a handful of times a year (funds limiting) and i wanted to get an AR before it was too late :TFH:

i'll mostly be shooting my MKIII and 10/22 since I can on the cheap, but my centerfire stuff (AR, mini14, pistols etc) will unfortunately have to take a back seat.

Nothing wrong with a simple straightforward set up. Looks good :)

Nice set up I plan on converting my KISS carry handle to a set up similar to yours. I just got the same sight for my Socom II.

I had a PA microdot with an AD mount on my AR and I really liked it. I have an aimpoint PRO now, but I miss the micro dot size.

What mount did you get for your Optic?

The one that PA sells with it. Its a high cantilever mount that's an extra $10. It locks up tightly and appears sturdy.

Cool, personally don't like the magpul handguard but as long as you like it, that's all that matters.
