    New 1-6 ACOG

    you can easily find Trijicon on sale for 30% off MRSP. So street price should be around $1589. good point...TR24 price on the trijicon website says $1050; and I think paid less than $680 for it.

    New 1-6 ACOG

    Looks funky..but I like it...sort of. Snaps I just bought a vortex 1-6 a couple weeks ago...like it a lot. If the vcog was say... $1750 and I did not buy the vortex yet...I would be interested in taking a look at one.

    Vortex Razor 1-6 HD Gen II

    Alamo, I got the MGM switchview lever in @ the beginning of the week; pretty sweet. i like the length of the lever...it's not obnoxiously protruding, but enough for some leverage. some leverage was definately needed, changing the magnification requires a bit of muscle. hopefully it loosens up a bit down the road. i believe i found a decent spot on the rifle to optimize eye relief; i have it on a larue SPR-E mount. it's pushed pretty far foward because I run the VLTOR stock on the third position setting "3".

    Vortex Razor 1-6 HD Gen II

    Nice bearcave! I hope to play with the BDC this weekend. Did a quick comparison to a TR24....the eyebox is not quite as large/forgiving on the vortex, but it is pretty close; which says a lot. Because the TR24 is not picky at all. What I did initially notice yesterday playing around with 1X on the vortex was that it made objects seem smaller....I am talking about at close objects ~ 15 yard away. And with both eyes open it was a bit disorienting. Then I noticed the focus adjustment was turned all the way in (clockwise). I turned it out counter clockwise a bit and was able to tune the 1x so objects ~ 15 yards seemed truly 1x. I don't know if the focus ring is shipped from the factory turned in all the way, and I don't know if the focus ring also has the dual purpose if fine tuning @ 1x. I guess I will find out at the range when my distant targets seems blurry.

    Time to look for a throw lever...is MGM switchview a decent choice?

    Vortex Razor 1-6 HD Gen II

    didn't get to shoot as much as I wanted with the vortex this weekend, but had the chance to at least shoot a bit at 200 to get it sighted in. pretty sweet scope!!! Fine reticle for distance and bright reticle at 1x. and the glass impressed my cousin who has pretty high standards.

    Appreciate the input all. just completed the order through Liberty Optics (Scott). Will follow up with my initial thoughts of the optic after sighting it in... Thanks

    Thanks Pat. ~ 3 MOA @ 1X sounds good. In the process of ordering one. I have been comparing the vortex 1-6 vs the Leopold Mark6...hoping the vortex would come out on top due to less damage on the wallet. Although i like the hash marks for windage; I was reading the recticle is hard to see on the Leupold Mark6 (first focal plane) at 1X.

    thanks glock34shooter! last question, as I have pretty much decided on this scope...how big is the center dot @ 1X magnification? online manual says the dot is 1/2 MOA...but I assume that's at 6X, and was wondering how large it was at 1X. thanks!

    Is the ADM recon X (additional cant) preferred over the regular recon mount for this optic? For comparison I shoot with a Larue SPR-E on the TR24 trijicon.

    Hello anyone happen to know if the reticle on this optic is brighter than the leupold 1-6 mk6 reticle?

    Any new 1-6 or bigger scopes?

    Thanks all...hopefully I get to run into one soon...would like to see it in person before jumping on it. Anyone happen to know if the vortex 1-6 illumination is brighter than the leupold 1-6 horseshoe reticle? Ouch...that Leopold is not cheap...heh. I have heard the Leopold reticle is not so bright...in full sunlight...

    Any new 1-6 or bigger scopes?

    About to add a second AR15 this weekend; I'm not sure why...it's not like i have surplus ammo... Am researching the Vortex 1-6 right now...would you fellas know who sells it at the lowest price? Thanks!
  15. A good buddy of mine came up with a staggered double mag pouch that has a mechanism that kicks out the inner most mag when the outer one is removed. I have preferred to use single magazine, but am anxious to give this one a try next time out. anyhow, i think he's onto something...and wanted to share! Demonstration...
