|Thewretched||I was thinking about EOTech and Aimpoint, like you both said, but I can't see myself dropping 500+ on just one optic, where for about 400.00 I can get a vortex reddot and a magnifier.|

The XPS2.0 uses a CR123A battery, mounted transversely so it frees up a whole slew of space on the top rail of ARs, will co-witness with irons too.
All that being said, the Vortex lineup is solid. Well made and backed by their no-hassle forever warranty. I keep coming back to the 1-4x Viper PST scope, I want to lay hands on one in a bad way to see how that illuminated reticle works in bright daylight. The Vortex brand is made to a price-point, a very well thought out and managed point tho. It's not as burly and bomb-proof as the Aimpoints, but the prices reflect that. I have an Aimpoint that is well over 25 years old on a .44 Mag that bucks like a mule. Never had issue one from it and it's had thousands if not 10s of thousands of rounds down the barrel. Battery life is sorta annoying but feed it fresh batts and it's as reliable as the sun.

|WirelessG||I have a Vortex strike fire and it works fine. I haven't shot with it much (couple hundred rounds), but so far so good. Primary Arms has some homegrown red dots that are cheaper. They may not last as long, but they provide a warranty on them. I'd like to get an EOTech or an Aimpoint or a Mepro, but I can't justify the cost. Burris makes a nice reflex sight.|

|Thewretched||Any opinions on the Vortex red dot sights?|

|royals17||My grandfather purchased an StG 44 after he left the army in the mid-50's. He had it all the way up until I was around 7, and then he sold it. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. When I was around, he didn't shoot with it much, but I know it got some action when he was younger. I never fired that gun, or any other StG 44. I've always kind of wished he hadn't sold it.|

|WirelessG||By the way, have you ever fired a Steyr MA-1. It's one of my favorites.|

I like your collection too....I'd love to get a USP tactical 45. What else do I see there...some Berettas, Walthers, FN's? STG58 is pretty cool. My gunsmith has an MG44 and a friend in Alabama has an STG44. Never had a chance to fire them, but pretty interesting what the Germans came up with all those years ago.
I have a tube to rebuild the receiver for the Sten....it's the threaded barrel I'm looking for
