    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
