You have to take off any optics though right? 

I've occasionally wondered if one of those 'tip off' 3x magnifier mounts that are popular when used with the EOTechs might work without having to come off. 

Thoughts?

I think the problem with a 3x magnifier would be that you only end up magnifying the front post, would that work the same as magnifying a holosite? I've tried a few optics on it but don't like not being able to fully fold it. Also I'm worried about damaging the optic in transit/storage.

The mount in the video you linked looks awesome. I'd probably buy that if I had the gen 2 fore end, I wonder if that wound would work on a quad rail?  Do you think keeping tension on the bolt group like the guy does in the video with the para-cord with be detrimental to the spring?

Picked up my first Glock, still haven't tried it yet.


I wanted to get a Glock 17 but I'm leaning towards the 19 now.

Makes for a nice photo with the rest of my pistols, but not sure I'm going to keep it:



How do you like the .45s?  I wanted to pick up a 1911 too but I'm really on the fence about introducing a new caliber to the house. Everyone says .45 is really cost prohibitive to shoot too.

.45 isn't too expensive, especially if you can buy bulk or know someone that reloads.

I've got lots of 9's, some .40s and lots of other calibres. For ever, my go to has been a Colt Commander stuffed full of Wilson Combat parts. I have a couple of 9's that are coming close to upsetting that.

I just put my Fab Defense KPOS up for sale, it's a chassis stock for the Glock 17/19.

Comes with a Vortex Strike Fire 1x Optic....asking $500...if you're interested, drop me a line.  I think I'm moving on to the SU-2000.



I like it, but I don't love it.
