Let me say that Bushnell is one Good Purchase also. It is Unbelievably Reliable. As a matter of fact when I get a Acog to replace it, I will install the Bushnell on my WASR10.

PMAGs are the absolute best.

I have 7 or 8 and love them.

Where did you get the 'cheek riser' thingy on the stock? I like it.

"Where did you get the 'cheek riser' thingy on the stock? I like it."

They come in a two pack with two different heights to match your optics height.

$20...like I said, "budget". :)

Here's one of many places that carry them:

thanks doc - I'll check it out. Does it work to get a better cheek weld? Or just a nice way to drop a 20 on something not really needed? On your AR with the carry handle I can see it working well. On a flat top, maybe not so much.

Yes, A2 handle-mounted optics need a higher cheek rest, and this one fits the bill perfectly.

On my budget there ain't no frills and bling on that gun.;)

I'm spending whatever extra money I make on ammo.

I'm assuming you cannot use your iron sights while in that configuration? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

But in any case, a very nice build.

If I may ask, what was the final tally? I really need to consider building my own soon.

Correct, with the high cheek rest, I can't see the irons although the mount has a tunnel for them. And the cheek rest can be removed with just a yank. The kit somes with 2 rests, one lower than the one shown.

Or course, even with my corrected vision I'm unable to use the irons anyway, thus the red dot.

Hard to say what I have in it since I got a great deal on the basic gun, and I've swapped, traded, ebay'ed, and budget shopped nearly all the accessories.

Retail for the mod's so far is only about $500 (including shipping):

butt pad
cheek riser
trigger pin anti-walk kit
Bill Springfield trigger job
Leupold handle rail
Bushnell Trophy red dot
P-Mag
handguard lower rail
rail covers
shorty vertical grip
green laser

About all I have left to do is GG&G sling mounts and sling.
(If I ran across a super deal I might put a 4 rail handguard on it, but the factory one works just fine with the single, lower rail.)

Then bring on the post-hurricane zombies!:D
