Do you think things like the Nickle Boron carrier group matters for reliability? Or did you just pick it because it's just a lot easier to clean? I've been quite spoiled with my Sig551SB, so the concept of doing anything special to a gun to make it work correctly is entirely foreign to me. The trade off is obviously that it's a heavy mofo to shoot standing without external support. How do you like your EOtech? The fact you didn't return in after the whole shitshow suggests you like your optic? I quite like the reticle, and it blooms less than my oldskool Aimpoint CompM3 (due to mild astigmatism). Have you ever noticed the large POI shifts they talked about? I guess hot days and cold nights in the sandbox do affect things.
