    Just mounted a $1000 optics on my $750 Rifle. :rofl: :big grin: + a new grip like the m4 instead of holding the HandG's . We're also putting a different version on our machine guns.

    Works great.

    tehking you've probably had experience with these in Iraq, how does it hold up in combat?

    The ACOGs are good to go. I was the under the impression that most AD Marines have had the TA31's for their rifles for a while now. Probably mounting a version of the Elcan on the machine guns.
