    The gun has been problem free so far with 5.56, but doesn't always lock back on .223 ammo. No stoppages, just a failure to lock back sometimes. It's only been fired 200 rounds, so it's basically still new.

    I plan to add Scalarworks PEAK sights, and some sort of weaponlight. For now I'm using a spare 1-4x LPV, which looks a bit obnoxious on such a small gun, but until it's been thoroughly vetted it's merely a range toy anyway...

    If I could do it over again I'd definitely do the same thing. I wish the SBA3 was sold as a brace only, because I'd go A5. It's not worth the cost IMO to buy the whole kit AND A5 stuff. However, now that I already have a Mk18, I've been ogling a BCM 12.5 Kino

    Nice rig. Go with H buffer if you arenít reliable with 223. No need for H2 if you arenít reliable with everything.

    Ok, I can respect your opinions. FBI and St. Paul PD approve use. Obviously they have tested them. Iím Mn it gets cold
    And they were approved. If itís good enough for FBI and St Paul PD then I am good with them. I have run them through a few courses and they have been great. I have aimpoint pro and the holosun has been as good so far. If it takes a shit on me then I have irons and a solid Colt AR. The nucleous is solid.

    Iím not positive but donít they have different grades of optics? Maybe thatís just the determining factor. I donít know, nor do I really care either way, Iíd probably just prefer to go to a Vortex Crossfire if I want a cheap dot.

    To be clear, the FBI does not approve any Holosun products, to my knowledge. They approve one particular Sig optic that is more expensive than others in the Romeo line and is assembled in the USA. Off memory alone, I think the opinion was that Holosun probably made the other Romeos and therefore the parts for the single FBI model. I canít check now, the thread is on this sight, I think.
    At the cost of that Romeo model, youíre in the territory of better optics.

    I got the PA optic blemished to try out a RDS, and I found it awesome...despite being notified after ordering that the night vision settings on that model would not function (though theyíll repair it eventually!). My second was a SPARC II based on the Recoil torture test, a $100 price, and the Vortex warranty.

    Sorry for hijaking the thread...
