I've had about 10+ MP5's and 6+ MP5SD's, they are fun and great to shoot. Plus they sell well.

This AR-15 thing continues to be a lot of fun.  I should have got into one years ago.

I took my Bushmaster A2 Carbine and swapped in a flattop receiver, and used the old components.  That is, the gunsmith did it.

Now it has a new EOtech 512 installed on the flattop.  I just ordered a YHM-220 EOtech riser to raise the scope up about 1/4 inch, in order to lower the front iron sights in the EOtech view.

Thanks very much, Richard.

That looks very good.  It's also two hours long!

Maybe someday we will have a book about the R9S.  Now that would be something to enjoy, too.

Well, I finally got a new Eotech rail riser on my AR-15 flat top.

Everything is all mounted, using blue Loc-Tite on the rail mounting screw.

The rail is not absolutely perfectly centered (left to right) on the flat top.   The front iron sight and the Eotech reticle are not vertically aligned.  Yuk!

I'm going to shoot it some, and see if minor adjustments are appropriate.  Otherwise, I guess it will have to be broken down and recentered.

Probably shoud have taken it to a gunsmith.
