My son's best friend is a Sgt in the Marine Corps. He did 2 tours in Iraq. He sent me an e mail a few weeks ago and asked if I would like to have the Eotech he used in the sandbox.
I just got it.
Looks like somebody has an excuse to buy a new upper. My Ar has the permanent carry handle. I have been wanting a flattop anyway.

Black Rifle forum is over there ^

But...was he having to use a personally owned Eotech on his issued rifle while deployed...or did he liberate a USGI Eotech?

If it was anyone but you Jack, I wouldn't bother with the photo.
But since I consider you the Commandant of GTR, here ya go.

That is very generous of you and in truth I never doubted you for a moment... I simply didn't have any idea what an Eotech was.

Now I know. Seems to me when I proudly wore the uniform our M-16's were equipped with... oh, rats... what did they call them... oh yeah... SIGHTS!

BTW... do all of those nifty things come standard with that manly, handsome gentleman in the viewfinder? :whistling:

Hey Jack
In this thread you are surrounded by Hoosiers!

I would type more witty responses, but I have to tie up my goat before it gets dark.

Jack, a lot of water has passed over the dam since you were in the service. (Somebody best check and see if there is any water left in the pond!) Those "sights" are now commonly referred to as "iron sights" as opposed to what most everyone else wants/uses today - an Eotech or an ACOG.

Hey, if 'iron' was good enough for the gladiators it's good enough for me.

I am curious what model # that Eotech is? I would love to get ahold of one of the ACOG sights that had the biblical #'s on them. I bet they would be a pretty cool collectors piece someday? Good score, I hope you don't see any Iraqui ghosts through her, lol.

Sounds like you got a hell of a deal. I've been procrastinating about getting an Eotech for a long while now. But what does this have to do with reloading?

As our Commandant, Jack, likes to say, we talk about everything on GTR.

And yes, I do reload for my AR.

2wheelDuke:

For your own sanity and well being pay little attention to Norton... there is no Commandant on GTR... the home is still trying to get his meds regulated and it has been a challenge that they have yet to conquer.

Unlike lessor loading forums on the net GT has managed to find that balance of very knowledgeable, experienced loaders who take great pleasure in helping newbs to learn and enjoy the addiction.

A value added facet of this forum is that it's recognized that ancillary subjects add to the over-all experience of loading, shooting and firearms knowledge in general and threads tend to be replete with nuances that are found nowhere else on the web.

In short, it's just a bunch of friends sitting around a table BS'ing about things we have in common, without the cigar smoke and scotch... unfortunately.

Hang around, become a member of the 'mad house club', teach what you know, learn what you don't and above all... have a little fun.

Oh, BTW... welcome. :wavey:

Well, I'll agree with the cigar smoke comment, but not the scotch.. :cool:

Let go of some of my squealing money today, and picked up an M&P 15-22 to mount the Eotech. Thing is, it appears to have very good peep sights on it. I may try them first.

Peep, (ghost) sights are some of the quickest ever designed. Your eye naturally finds the center of the sight.

That's probably the reason they're not allowed in black powder shooting. They say you can't use a red dot because it's not 'period authentic' but my feeling is if Jim Bridger would'a had one he'da used it. :whistling:

Please tell me you are not going to mount a Eotech on a 15-22. That is way to much optic for that gun. I am sure you have something to honor that sight a little better. I bet you that grunt would be upset if he knew it was going on a dueche dueche. JMO please don't take offense.

Jack, I got in a major argument on another forum when I said if ole Daniel Boone were to come back today, he would throw down his Flintlock and pickup an AR with plenty of extra mags. Oh my, the period dressers had a hissy fit about that one.

Love to go to 'Rendezvous' with the primitive guys. They come out all dressed up in their leathers, smelling like a litter of puppies', their fire making kits and hardly able to walk from sleeping in their teepees.

When they get to the line they've got everything in their possibles bag and stay well away from everyone smoking 'cause they've got a pound of black powder hanging around their neck.

They look good, gotta admit, especially compared to me in a pair of shorts, 'T' shirt and running shoes. However, I, like them am always equipped with my own fire starting kit... it's called a Zippo.

When ya shoot against these guys you always know you're going to take home some folding money... most of 'em can't hit the sky with a helium balloon.

If Bridger, Lewis, Clark, Boone, who ever had what we have today they'd have used it... why do people think it was all invented?

It's still fun to shoot the old stuff though. :supergrin:

No offense taken my man. My Sgt. friend told me to have fun with it, and I can't think of too many firearms more fun then the double deuce.

Ya true. That is just such a nice optic, i think you could get more out of it on a AR. But as long as your having fun, thats all that matters. And i am a little jealous. :crying:

Range report.
Fired about 200 rounds of Remington golden bullet-not recommended by S/W and a couple of days later about 100 rounds of Federal. I had about 5 FTF's with the Remington fodder, all of the Federals fired and ejected without a hiccup.
The Eotech?
I can see why the Marines use these. I was able to shoot with both eyes open and still focus on the target. I shot at both 30 yards, and later at 50 yards. Offhand It was easy to hit a pie plate shooting about as fast as I could pull the trigger. This S/W is more fun then should be legal. It's controls and function are very close to my Bushmaster AR.
I don't have to reload ammo for it either.

Not that reloading isn't fun. After all this is GTR!

A 'KOBALT' tool box... was Jimmy Johnson there to fix something?

For those of you who knows what that means it's proof that you've watched NASCAR so quit lying about it.
