You've all motivated. Just picked one up online... now to decide if the Dan Haga lower is worth it.

If you dont mind my asking, which online retailer did you pick one up from?

Well, went ahead and ordered one ( Strikefire 2 ) thru Amazon.
I looked on GB, but couldn't find a take a shot.
Had to pay tax, but will be here Tuesday latest, maybe Monday.
Plus, Amazon has a good return policy in case something is wrong, like previously owned or what not. I'm really looking forward to it.
Btw, just ran 20rds of the 62gr green tip penetrators and, they fed perfectly!
That 340rds with no end in sight lol....
So, total on the Strikefire 2 was $191 & some change.

Btw, I got the one with both red and green dot.
I didnt realize there were two versions.  At first I ordered the big red dot, but once I saw a video of one that had both, I canceled that order in favor of the res and green dot version. This also included a free hat.

Even though the new version will probably hit the US in rifle form soon I couldn't be happier with my 805.  I swapped the Aimpoint off my AR onto the Bren; it's now my primary HD/zombie gun. 8)

I know just what you mean.
I would MUCH rather have my PS1 than the new 2 version. I love how little recoil she has. Shes built like a tank and as smooth as silk.
If anything, I'll pick up another ps1 before they are gone.

How would you know? Have you fired the Bren 2 yet? It supposed to be much better than the 805 in every way. It will be like the 6 million dollar man, better, stronger , faster.

How would I know?
Because of my personal preference of course.
The 2 is lighter and has more recoil. And from a video review the trigger is not as good as the 1.
I hope this helps.
Also, the recoil I mentioned was confirmed on a video review.
As I stated before, I like the extra weight and low recoil of the 1.

Recoil? It’s a 5.56, there is hardly any recoil to begin with. I love how everyone talks about recoil with a 5.56. To me it’s like shooting a 22.

I also heard the oposite as far as recoil goes for the Bren 2. They said it was smoother shooting and faster so I assume that means pretty tame recoil. I am on the first responder list to get one and will post feedback when I get it. Will be going on my SBR list as well.

Just got a notice from UPS that my Strikefire 2 will be here tomorrow!
I'll keep yall posted.
However, my Bren being FDE, I just noticed that Optics Planet actually has an FDE version! It's called an OPMOD. So, if I really like this Strikefire, which I think I will, I may go ahead and put the one I have coming, the black version on my M1A Scout, and order the OPMOD version from Optics Planet for the Bren.  To have a matching optic, would be pretty slick I think.

Obviously I'd love to get the new version when it comes out but that might not be in the cards for me.  The original 805 is at the top end of what I'm able/willing to spend on a firearm, and I only got it because I found one for $1300.  It's unlikely that I'll be dropping $1900 for an S2.

Feel free to post up a pic of yours with that aimpoint. I'd love to see it!
