    A bit random, but I saw a bunch of Starlink satellites last night, was pretty trippy when I didn't know what it was:

    What AGB would you recommend? I have not heard of any DI gas block that is reliable and also easy to adjust, outside of maybe the Novseke Switchblock, Seekins Select, or now discontinued MicroMOA...

    I use a customized cap on one objective, and an normal one on the other, due to the COTI mounting bracket being in the way and not allowing the customized version. On the customized version, it has a...

    AFAIK, the only reason they market it for long guns is because it takes the remote switch. Which I can't find much info about, as to how you would switch between vis and IR. Either way, I personally...

    So, for all those folks that want tactical technical wear, there's now Sitka as an American-based alternative. Looks like the...

    I manipulate the front of the slide normally. I try not to manipulate using the optic unless I'm in a hurry; don't want to accidently hit a button or smudge/scratch the lens. I am also able to...

    Quo Vadis, Aida? was a very difficult watch for me. It is a fictionalized account of the Srebrenica massacre, though it actually shows fairly minimal explicit bloodshed. I had gone in knowing some...

    The colored PMAGs were definitely not as durable until you got to the Gen3 polymers. The Gen2s definitely had this issue, and as noted, it is why they got discontinued. The Sand and MCT are actually...

    What kind of mounts were they using? I'm just asking out of curiosity. I'm personally not too worried and will continue to have my lights pushed past the handguard, as I don't patrol or anything, and...

    Well, with a suppressor, it can be quite a bit of shadow. With the can in place, it would also limit the amount of things that could get caught by the light, since it would have to fit between the...

    Rumor has it it'll have the same footprint, with a sleeker shape and better adjustments. Hopefully all pan out.

    I'm deeply hoping that the 2032 version uses the same footprint. I can flip the 1225 variant to be back-up sights or perhaps just throw them on my LPVOs to replace the RMRs.

    I recall my old RMR Type 1s RM06 set on auto would wash out when using X400Us and X400UHs when used under 10-ish yards while indoors. Not sure what generation they were, so don't know the exact...

    You either live with it, or else push the light out further (would be tricky to keep the X300 at 1200) and use a tape switch instead. Your only options really, that I can think of; I do the latter,...

    Once you add a suppressor, the shadowing can become quite noticeable from a WML if you have the light further back. Something to consider if a can is potentially part of the picture. Same issue with...

    Rifle cans are certainly not "self cleaning". You can easily get large amount of carbon in them that add weight and degrade performance; I've had my SOCOM556-RC grown 3 or 4 oz heavier than their...

    I don't think an Aimpoint with a magnifier is comparable to a SpecterDR. The big issue is light transmission and FOV.

    The SpecterDR is going to have far superior light transmission compared to...
