Louis Quarleno sent me a nice little present for my precious. A Burris Fastfire 3. Tough little Red Dot, very light weight. This one has the shroud to help protect it… Which got painted, of course.
Man, I really want to go shoot this now. Can’t wait till I’m back on my feet to take Kahlan out for a Range Session!
Thank you, Q! You rock to a shockingly high degree!
I’m just having fun with this thing… But the more I mess around with it, the more I like it. I think this one is going to be hanging around for awhile.
I decided to go two tone. Because I just love two tone. And I had a can of Rust-Oleum laying around. And I was bored. But I like the results. I rolled a sheet of paper and slipped that over the barrel, under the guards, to give better contrast. Once it fully cures out, the resulting finish will look a lot more matte. Takes about a week for Rust-Oleum to cure.
As much as I wanted to use the Magpul Pro sights – they remain pretty dang expensive. So I had these MBUS sights laying around. Okay, I didn’t even know I had them… found them in a box in my closet. BINGO! But they will do just fine… and they look nice.
Also, when it comes to FDE, the Magpul’s darker tone of FDE is bloody perfect. That should become the standard of FDE. All FDE should be Magpul’s.
Now, I could just leave it as it is at this point. But really… It does need a few things. Such as a good micro red dot. And something to keep my hand from slipping in front of the muzzle.
