    Never liked the strike eagles. They tried to tick a lot of boxes for features and magnification, and it was made at the cost of poor image quality imo. You made a good choice.

    $20k in guns and optics, and still too cheap to replace the legs on my gong stands. Ricochet sealed its fate

    Finally pulled the trigger (heh heh)!

    BCM Recce 14, and a Vortex Razor UH-1 optic is what I have so far.

    Before it's duty ready I intend to purchase the following items:

    - Foregrip (likely BCM short foregrip)
    - Sling (likely an adjustable strap like all my coworkers bought)
    - Streamlight tac light (650 or 1000 lumen)
    - Flip up sights
    - Extra mags (PMAG Gen 2 with the window, perhaps?)





    I'm really excited to play around with the UH-1, however I'm nervous that I won't like it as much as the (cheaper) Strike Eagle optic 3 of my coworkers have with the etched reticle and magnification capabilities. I went with the UH-1 because the odds of me taking a 100+ yard shot is pretty slim, and I typically use it for standoffs and clearing warehouses etc.. I could always purchase a magnifier too if needed.

    That’s the truth. The first few dry fire pulls I made I went straight through the second stage. I was so used to my mil-spec. I thought damn I thought this was a 2 stage. Never pulled a 2 stage trigger this nice before. In their video they do a great job of explaining why some of there triggers are meant to break like a “carrot” others a “candy cane”, and some like a “glass rod”.

    I think if you plan to use an ar for home defense some of there triggers are a no go, the SSA-E would be on my list of not suitable for home defense. To easy to accidentally squeeze one off. They give lots of options for a reason.

    Watch the geissele video on YouTube. It is a great video explaining the purpose of each of their triggers. Very informative if your in the market or think you may be.He goes in depth on safety factors, speed, and accuracy of each of their options.

    I am much more impressed with this Geissele trigger than I was with the Gray Guns trigger for the Sig P320.

    I never thought an aftermarket trigger was necessary, but while I was picking up my Ruger Superfuddhawk the resident cerakoter/builders in my local gun shop brought out a freshly finished AR build with a Geissele SD-3G trigger. He was way too excited about it and said I had to try it. The trigger break was standard light and clean as you'd expect, but the reset was the real highlight. It would basically push the trigger forward to reset once you released pressure. We both agreed it would make for a really fast trigger. I never thought I would jump on the aftermarket bandwagon, but I may have to toss one of those in my next build.

    I am really fighting buying a Citori CX shotgun right now. I really want a quality o/u and I can get one right now for $1400 after Browning’s current rebate. I think I’m going to hold off till New Year’s eve, and if they still have a 32” in stock it then was meant to be.

    Vortex is killing it. They lag some of the more established brands for stuff like reticles, but they make great products at good prices. They certainly wouldn't be my first pick if money were no object, but like anything there are diminishing returns on your money.

    A few years ago I scored a deal on a Ruger Super Blackhawk with 7 1/2" barrel from a co-worker. It was a fun gun, but it was way longer that what I like so I sold it with the intention of replacing it with something more wieldy. I finally sprung for a replacement a few weeks ago and got this 3.75" Super Blackhawk 44mag. Recoil doesn't seem as stout as the longer barrel, but I imagine that is partially due to lower velocities from the abbreviated package. It still tosses one hell of a fireball and is a riot to shoot.

    I sold my Eotech XPS2 in a fit of rage after constantly dealing with dead batteries even without use. Replaced it with a Vortex Sparc AR. Only thing I missed was the 1moa dot. I would imagine the Vortex wouldn't take as much abuse as the Eotech, but I'm not worried about abuse when shooting paper or 4 legged creatures. As far as fit, finish, feel, and glass, the Vortex was every bit as good as the Eotech.

    Can already confidently say I won't be able to. Glass quality is an improvement but nowhere near the 100% cost increase, nor do I have a need for the 9x zoom that gives the wicked field of view. It's a very purpose built scope, which I suspect is why you don't see it in competitive shooting like PRS. Great scope, however would not hesitate to buy the Razor again.

    Make sure to report back if the S&B is worth the cost difference to the vortex. Nice pickup.
