    Thanks for the tip! I was worried those were "airsoft" quality, or something like that.

    One cannot be too careful.

    Offer the neighbor kid some hot chocolate and he will help you out.

    Okay, I see what I did wrong. However, it looks like I'm going to miss out on this deal anyway. I tried desperately to order this through my smartphone, but I cannot for the life of me get to a page where it says proceed to checkout. I have every other option except proceeding to the goddamn check out.

    By the time I get home and onto an actual computer, I imagine they will probably be all sold out. Bubblegum, bubblegum, bubblegum.

    Wow. That was ginormous PIA, but I finally got it ordered. I had to completely delete my browser history, clear the cache, and delete all the cookies before trying the order again, and THEN the "Proceed To Checkout" button finally appeared. Holy crap. If only I could get these things before the weekend, but I know it will take a week at least. Ah well.

    Diamondhead seems like a good product for the price.
    I'd run away from anything UTG/Leapers though.
    Instant devaluation of your rig when you hang that stuff on it.

    Those look good.
    Fairly new to the marketplace, I believe.

    If you're a civilian or a fan of the 2nd Amendment, Troy doesn't like you.

    They'll never see a dime of mine. I had one of their uppers but sold it at a loss just because I'd be too embarrassed to be seen with their name on something I used (other than shop rags I made out of their t-shirt). You could call it a one-time mistake and move on but then they did it again: What The Hell's The Problem With Troy Industries? - The Truth About Guns

    To remain on topic, I think I'd be tempted to try flip-ups that lock in place as the only brands I've used do not.

    To riff on 007, once is Happenstance, twice is Enemy Action.

    Matech rears are nice too, when you can find 'em for $50-75, particularly for cloning milspec builds.

    Ended up going with the Aero Precision sights. I handled them before I bought and under spring tension, even though they didn't lock in the open position, I was confident it wouldn't be a problem. And I got a pretty good deal on them.
