I ended up buying an Eotech EXPS2-0.

A bit heavy but rugged.

Oh and I also ended up with the entire FN rifle.
Got my background check but have to wait another couple days to pick it up. Waiting period and all that.

Seems to me FN built my Browning Hi Power back in the early eighties.

This is the first lower I have had that shows the stamping for auto at the safety selector switch, though it is semi auto only.

What's up with the notched hammer they put on it?
I thought notched hammers were a thing of the past.

That would be Fabrique Nationale in Belgium. You rifle is made by FN's American subsidiary, FN America.

That's the way Colt makes the hammers for their semi-auto AR-15 fire control groups (unless something has recently changed), so it doesn't surprise me that FN does the same.

Is that a 14.5” barrel with a P&W flash hider, or 16” barrel?

P&W.
However it's really 14.7in barrel with welded A2 bird cage to bring it to 16 inches.

That's what FN says on their website for the military collector series.

I changed my mind on this and went with the Aimpoint Comp4s.
The s model has the battery compartment low on the right side side instead of near the top right.

I thought since I went this far for a really close civilian Block 1 M4A1, why not go with the more common US Military red dot for it.

It's really going to look good when the Aimpoint arrives.
I have the vertical grip attached in a location I like and put on the appropriate KAC rail covers on the bottom to fill in the gaps in front and back of it.

I have had a lot of fun with this uncomplicated project. First project since my diagnosis back in 2015. But it was pricey.

Now I have to figure out if I want a 3X magnifier for it.

Congrats! Those are nice rifles. Can't go wrong with Aimpoint.

Careful with the clone rifles, they multiply. Fun projects at least for me. Finding the little parts is half the fun

Btw, M203 40mm launchers are treated the same as purchasing a silencer Big Grin

I have been around a while, but doubt I have ever addressed you directly. I always figured you already had anything you ever wanted in life. I have admired your career over the years, and also recall many challenges you have faced prior to diagnosis. You managed each challenge in a valiant manner.

Nothing to really add to this particular thread other than congratulating you and agreeing that you have made another wise decision. FN and Aimpoint manufacture quality products. What I like about my favorite Aimpont is that my KAC flip up rear sight aligns perfectly with the Aimpoint. I own FN, but KAC and Colt fill this particular space. I am a bit out of the loop on current technology, but would hope it is still a consideration to have a mount that allows the red dot to align with the open sights.


Most importantly, Salute to you Sir.

Thanks for the kind words.

Multiply? Yeah, the Colt Socom Block 1 is halfway there. Different red dot, going to be the T2 with a Scalarworks Leap 13 mount with the lower 1/3 height (1.93in). I want to try something with less neck strain.
Might look a little strange but think it will work well.

When I pass on, each daughter can one.
Seems only fair.
But will there be an issue between them where one rifle's red dot lines up with the iron sights and the other is taller ie lower third?

From my reading research, it seems current trends for civilians are the higher mounts.

Very Doubtful, according to Sundown at Coffin Rock.
