    Bought a Maglula for the CZ Scorpion and a Zev 34 slide for the gen5 17. 2B83203E-E637-4DFF-AC4A-166AB5D83E18.jpeg
    Now if I can just find a gen5 slide kit and a barrel that’s not priced out of sight!:confused:

    Half a case of X4429 9mm jhp stuff, full-length 'rip-brace' buffer tube to replace the micro version on the banshee, bolt rebuild kit for the banshee (a preemptive, just-in-case thing since its bolt is proprietary & unique), half dozen magazine conversion guts that let the banshee upper use any AR pistol lower, four 24-round glock 9mm magazines, and some additional steel targets. Ordered an MRO for the banshee, but hasn't come in yet. Also got an RMA from Trijicon for an older MRO whose battery life isn't near what it should be. Boxed it up today to send back.

    Also received the solvent trap to turn into a form-1 suppressor. Haven't done anything with it yet; just measured it & stuck it in the safe. Haven't even started the paperwork yet, just storing it unmodified and locked up until I get things rolling on it paperwork-wise.

    {edit to correct 'rib-brace' to 'rip-brace'}

    Where do you get your used MROs?

    Short answer - ebay.

    Longer answer - the MRO was the first true top-end red dot I owned; bought when they first came out some years ago and were hundreds cheaper than the Aimpoint T series. Loved it, even though it had some very minor amount of magnification and a minor tinting to it. Was still great, and as good as my eyes are anyway. Then when Trijicon came out with the improved version around serial number ~85,000 or whatever it was, a lot of guys just had to have the better one so they sold their originals used on ebay for half price or less. When Trijicon came out with the MRO Patrol a year or two ago, same thing happened again. A lot of guys just had to have the newest, so there were a lot of bargains on ebay at the time. I looked a week or two ago and didn't see those kind of bargains; may have to wait for the next "latest & greatest" to come out and see if the same thing happens again.

    One nice thing was that even though I bought this MRO used and told them that, trijicon sent me the RMA paperwork. I don't know if their warranty extends past the original owner, and told them in my initial email to them that even if it wasn't under warranty I'd like an estimate to repair. Hopefully it will be warranty or some simple and cheap part swap, but don't want to live with it as-is. On setting #4, batteries only last 6-8 weeks and so would (for my purposes) only be good on a strictly recreational rifle, and would be annoying even on that.

    Finally got my leupold quick flip scope covers in for the leupold scout scope on my gunsite scout. Normally about $65 a piece. Found one on ebay for $40 and the other for $55.

    14.5" Socom barrel with A2 sight. USPS tracking claimed I was getting it yesterday. Mail already ran today.1000rds of Tula X39 plinking ammo. FedEx claimed it was coming today. Couple of mags for the AR's. 3 triple AK "kangaroo" mag pouches for the plate carrier. Condor brand. Been waiting 2 weeks for a shipping notification from Botach on some.40. I want a FDE Magpul hand guard for the barrel. I thought surely I had one in my box of stuff. All I found was a black one. Oh well I guess I'll be talkin to Primary Arms.

    Botach still screwing up?
    I had some crazy dealings with them about 10 years ago. Great prices but crazy shipping and customer service.

    I'm would still be one handguard short. This particular HG came on my 6920LE Colt.

    NQNPIII Well-Known Member

    I've never ordered ammo from them before. But ya, they do a hybrid FedEx/USPS thing on the other stuff. I actually got my notification after posting. It is going to ship with a UPS tracking number.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just checked.

    Unexpectedly got 400 rounds of CCI .22LR sub sonic for $24 at a store out of town. This cartridge performs well with 2 of my suppressors.

    I had two orders with them recently with no issues. The last order was two G17 magazines that arrived in a week or so despite the Covid19 delays.
