    Drove by a somewhat local shop yesterday and they had a sign in the window -- New AR-15 Rifles, $499.95. My only guess, had to be a Hesse...

    get a TA31, not an 01. they're pretty much the same, except the 31 allows you to use the Bindon Aiming Concept, whereas the 01 does not, and the 31 is illuminated during the day as well as at night. it costs a bit more, but you can get 31's for $850 or sometimes better.

    it allows the shooter to keep both eyes completely open. your primary eye (the one looking through the optic) sees the reticle, and superimposes it over the picture that your other eye sees. basically, you now have both eyes open, and it appears as though both eyes see the same thing: a full picture, with a reticle over your target. aimpoints do the same thing. the nice thing about it is that you can leave the optic on your carbine or home defense rifle at night, and put the front lensecap down, protecting the lense. leave the rear cover down, so you can see into the optic. if you grab your rifle in the middle of the night, using the above described concept, your primary eye will see JUST the reticle (because it can't see through the optic), but your other eye will see the world in front of you. your brain will combine them in your head, and you'll have a perfect sight picture with your target and a reticle right over it, even in the darkness. use your weapon light as necessary.

    basically, the BAC makes it even quicker and more versatile for CQB, but because you've got a magnified optic, you can still have an extended range of accuracy. from all reports, it seems as though the chevron reticle is quicker at close ranges, but the donut is more accurate at longer ranges.

    shit, if you look on the EE at ARFCOM, there are a couple TA01's. they're going from $775 to $850, with no mount, new. there's a NIB TA31 with the ARMS mount for $975. that's a good deal. most likely has the donut reticle.

    G&R Tactical is selling them new for $950, probably with no mount. the mount will run you another $100-150.

    TA01 goes for $950 also, but that's MSRP, not actual retail. they do go for a little cheaper than that if you're an ARFCOM member.

    okay, after looking some more, it seems as thought over $1000 is normal for a TA31 by itself, so that first link is a fucking awesome deal.
