    I have not understood why the 10 and 20 round mags are as high as the 30round. I know the 30s are more popular but it takes less material to make the others. I'd like to get some of the smaller count mags for testing new loads but that's about it.....maybe use them for bench rest shooting or something....but for plinking,it's easier to just grab a couple of 30s.

    Yep I'd like a 10 to hunt with and just think the 20's would be easier all the way around. Guess they are higher because they sell less volume of them?

    I've had real good luck with sightmark reflex sights. Excellent value for the money IMO. I'm partial to the sightmark ultra shot QD, which is the quick disconnect version of the ultra shot. Here's a link to academy, but they can be found cheaper if you poke around. I think I gave $79 for the last one I bought.

  9. I ordered two set of the cheap Magpul ripoffs on Oct. 4th and still haven't received a shipping notice or the sites. No replies from emails or anything so I'm out 12 bucks.

    That $20 red dot just came in. First impressions, I'm impressed for the price. It feels solid. There's nothing that appears cheesy or cheap other than the box it came in. I haven't sighted it in or shot with yet but I'm looking forward to using it.

    On a side note... I really like that it doest have any names or badges on it. So yeah it's cheaper but it's not advertising just how cheap. It's just a red dot.

  16. Mine came in today. They are really cheap and barely functional but would work in a pinch if needed.

    I have bought more cheap sights than I care to mention but I absolutely loathed the mbuis knock offs. Hated them wouldn't stay folded down and they eventually fell to pieces.
    And on a side magpul allows some Chinese company to make and import those sights for airsoft or "training" purposes. Or at least that's what I've read. Somewhere on that box it says for training and simulations.
