    As an aside, I spent a few minutes doing some internet research on the Sig Romeo3 I found for $299.00 and posted in this thread. That is $100.00 off the going rate and I thought it was a deal.

    But then I found DHgate.com a company in China which makes or distributes the same sight and even sells them wholesale.

    It's got the Sig logo on it. Look at the features of this sight as you scroll down. It is the same as the Sig. Or is it a Sig? These guys either make this sight for Sig or they have stolen the entire set of blueprints, including electronics, from Sig.

    I think one day aimpoint will figure out a circle dot reticle that also has 50k hour battery life. Kinda like holosun...

    Regarding the ATN X-Sight, this is the manufacturers site:

    https://www.atncorp.com/x-sight2-hd-...le-scope-3-14x

    They make a 3-14X and a 5-20X. If I am reading this correctly, the night vision is digital. Short battery life 8-12 hrs. but you can carry a battery pack attached to the rifle by a wire and extend the life. This optic weighs over two pounds, 2.15 pounds. There are some nice vids on this. There are tons of other features I would never even use. It looks super-hi-tech, like something in a sci-fi movie. For digital night vision all rolled up into a variable powered scope, this looks like the future.

    I had one of these briefly, the X-Sight Pro 3-14X. The NV is IR, not thermal, and thus requires an IR illuminator hanging on your rifle, which adds even more weight. It's a heavy system. The additional battery pack would be more weight, and they also offer a ballistic range finder that could attach to the front and pair to the scope to auto range and auto adjust the aim point to compensate for the range. More weight...

    The one I had was amazing at night, I could see clearly for several hundred yards as long as there was nothing close in the FOV to reflect the IR beam. Unfortunately, the one I had was defective in that the IR sensor apparently would not deactivate, which made it essentially unusable in daylight.

    It works, but it's heavy. Doesn't matter if you're supported I guess, but it was quite a bit to lug around and aim offhand. Probably won't bother the guys used to carrying 4 lbs. on the front of the rifle. Just be sure to test it thoroughly while you can still return it...

    Thin Al or well supported/structured polymer would get my $$$... great build!

    Or maybe a metal-reinforced polymer sort of like a Glock frame might work too.
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    I have been meaning to get back to you on this. The optic already has a metal hood. You are really beefing it up substantially with your design. I am thinking overkill. Maybe ok if you are going to take this optic to war but I can't believe it is so flimsy now that it wouldn't work for home defense. Tell me more of your thoughts on your design.
