Trijicon. Well, he was close, but I opted for an Aimpoint Comp ML3 instead. For a mount, I went with a LaRue Tactical LT150 lever mount. I know, big deal, right? Everybody has this setup on their rifles. I agree, and for good reason. This combination is battle proven. If it is good enough for soldiers fighting it out in shit holes around the world, then it is good enough for my application, which is primarily home defense. Since I probably won't ever encounter the horrors of the modern battlefield, this expensive, albeit worthwhile setup will probably outlast the gun it is mounted on. It will certainly outlast me. I now understand why people spend a ton of money to put these items on top of their rifles.
For the pictures, I left the dust cover off because I think it looks better without it. However, since I do live in one of the rainiest areas of the country, I put it on for an extra measure of protection. It seems silly though because the Comp ML3 is said to be completely waterproof.
Additionally, the mount sits at the right height for a 1/3 cowitness of the iron sights through the ML3 optic. In fact, since the SR-556 sights are mechanically zeroed at this point, and the aimpoint is mechanically zeroed as well, the red dot sits just above the front sight post, albeit it a click off to the right. Tomorrow, I'm going to go get this fantastic gun sighted in. There will probably be a video of sorts to accompany my range report. Until that time, peace out!
