    Finally found a S&W M&P15 that was in stock (2 left :eek3:) but it's the OR model, which is fine with me... but now I need to start figuring out what to do to aim the damn thing.

    Eventually I will get optics for it, either an EOTech or Aimpoint, but to start, I need irons.
    Give me good ideas. Price range - under $200 for both.

    I really like Troy battle sights... but my god, $140 for ONE? The gun industry has gone crazy, I swear.

    Give it about a week and they should be all over. People that preorderd directly through magpul are starting to get theirs.

    Problem is those will probably be pretty expensive with all the hype they're getting.

    They're released as well as magpul releases anything. If you stay away from private sellers you should be able to get them at their normal price.

    Which is? I'm having a hard time finding any real credible info on the things. No prices anywhere, no public release date. Nothing.

    I don't think they'll be beat for the price. The only thing I've seen that I don't like so far is a little extra material here and there from the molding process. I'ts purely cosmetic and it's nothing that can't be fixed with a razor and a few seconds of time.

    I do see what you're saying. They look... bloated, not streamlined. I guess that's just what you get when you use polymer.

    Nowhere yet, apparently. Peope who preorded them straight from Magpul are JUST getting them.
    So like others have said, it's only a matter of a few weeks, or even days, until they start hitting the auction sites and vendors.

    Damn it.

    Well I guess I picked a good time to re-vamp my AR.

    Middy rail, lo-pro gas block, plus MBUS.

    Nice. I haven't even gotten my rifle yet, but while I'm waiting I minus whale figure out what I'm going to put on it.

    Oh for fucks sake. eFail.
     
  22. They're PTS. That's Magpul's officially licensed airsoft line.

    I should be getting my Troy rear sight tomorrow. :)

    Looks like there's a couple that have made their way on to Gun Broker... $120 and $140 EACH :rofl:
     
  25. Yeah, what a joke. When I was much younger my brother had a CD single with the Macarena on it. It was really popular and nobody had it in stock. I offered him like $20 for the CD and he said no. After everyone realized the song was stupid and it wasn't popular anymore I was glad I didn't buy it from him.

    Not that the MBUS is stupid, it sure isn't, just that I'd rather wait than massively overpay for something like that.
