AR Meta

What is the up-to-date, but not going overboard AR meta in 2024?

1. How do you determine buttstock length setting?
2. Does pretty much everyone have to have a hugely-raised cheek rest or does no one bother and just not have it shouldered like pic-related?
3. What is the standard non-gucci / pretend operator set up for sights? Is it just an ACOG all around? Red dot with a flip up ACOG?
4. Does anyone actually use the pinhole sight? If so, do you pretty much to have to put your eye on it?

Got a CYMA airsoft AR and realized that I have no idea how you are supposed to hold the thing.

    P.S. I am aware we have an /arg/, but it's mainly used for talking about fursuits, and they don't understand the concept of "basic".

      I thought the point of the shoulder rest was to go on your shoulder. Not happening in pic in my OP not happening here:

      [...]

      , doesn't seem to happen on a regular basis. Seems like the only way the buttstock would be on the shoulder and cheek on top of it, aligned with the sight, would be if there was a bunch of built up material on top of the stock.

      What are the flippy flippies that get put in front of (behind?) red dots?

      well, people found out it's better ergonomically, offers more clearance for your headset and NVGs if that applies, works better with glasses, but you know, keep being a contrarian

              Special forces units are experimenting with going back to 90's-era optics mounting for the sake of their cumbersome helmet-mounted gear. That does not mean it's in any way good or optimal. If this shit didn't fricking suck we'd have never gone to flat-top uppers.

                >Have you ever shot a gun with a high mount at close range?
                Yes, I've had a red dot on my A2 carry handle upper, very similar to the pic.
                >Have you ever passive aimed with night vision?
                No, and neither have 99.99% percent of the 1% of gun owners who actually shoot.

                no one at all today uses the carry handle mounted optics, its just the unity mount and other aftermarket mounts

                Obviously anon. I'm talking about the height over bore, not the literal mount

                I've used the gooseneck mount to use uppers with carry handle. Looks like shit and doesn't hold zero very well, but it can work

    1. The length is already set.
    2. No cheek rest required.
    3. The sights come with it.
    4. You have to use the "pinhole sight", and the closer to your eye it is, the better.

    1) depends on how long your arms are and if you're wearing a vest, vest+plates, etc
    2) cheek to buffer tube is fine
    3) comp M4 or acog, back up irons
    4) not really but a lot of BUIS are the pin whole type. And no.

      But you can't use ACOG effectively in CQB, right? So the assumption is that you switch to red dot / irons under 50 yards or something? Like what's the actual "rule" for this?

      > 4) not really but a lot of BUIS are the pin whole type. And no.
      The pin sight just seems horrible. I read the theory about how it sucks even compared to an open AK sight, but it seems to be reality. Seems like even in broad daylight, you can't see shit unless you put your eye up right to it and then you have zero situational awareness, though I guess that's the argument for "both eyes open".

        You can. 4x not ideal but it works.
        Peep sight is fine, just take practice.

        you shoot the acog both eyes open

        At close range you are using binocular vision to get a compound image of the target at 4x and 1x with the reticle superimposed over both, so you shoot normally. You can also just look over the top of the acog and use the top ribs of the fiber guard as an "aiming point".

        The "combat" sight "wide aperature" on AR15s is literally never used, it's a mystery why it's been on there for 50 years. All matech/kac buris are pinhole only for a reason

    The meta is to run the cheapest setup possible because the market has hit a sweet groove where even the cheapshit is reliable& accurate. Same goes for red dots these days. The /arg/ gays will employ all manner of coping, seething, and condescending, but it's the truth

      To a point. Streamlight and Sig/Vortex are still the minimum floor pricewise before we're talking about literal toys

          >Damn good dots
          In my experience, yeah. I say they're the floor price-wise, but I don't mean that as a knock on their quality. I have a ton of Streamlights and a bunch of Vortex's, and the only Vortex optic I've managed to break was a Spitfire 3x prism. I took it out during a ludicrously cold Canadian winter, and only realized later that it was outside the rated operating temperature. The electronics died and I lost illumination, but they gave me a new one without hesitation even though it was clearly my fault

            It's really hard to argue against Vortex's warranty. That's how you build customer loyalty right there

              100%. It'd be different if there product was shit and I had to keep using the warranty, but I've been using their stuff for years and that prism was the only incident I've had. Same with Streamlight, actually, I accidently broke one of their tape switches trying to pry it off of one of my guns when I used too strong of an adhesive, and when I asked them about buying a replacement since their store doesn't ship outside the US, they just sent me a new one for free the same day, cross-border shipping and everything. Those guys honestly kicks ass and I will go to bat for them even if they do unfortunately outsource a lot of their manufacturing to China

    the ar meta of 2024 hasn't changed in the past 2 years. brownells stripped m4a1 upper with a reliable lower and stock parts. gucci things out as you see fit. vickers sling and t2 on a larue mount.
    1. for the average sized man, all the way out or one setting in from all the way out. being curled around the gun is moronic.
    2. not shouldering your rifle is also moronic.

    ?si=tHHq5YrJN64JAWfS&t=1125
    is the guy too go to for ar stuff.
    3. acog/rmr is still a reliable choice. t2+g33 magnifier is another. lpvo's require a 2k$+ investment before they are at the level of the other options.
    4. buis are vestigial at this point.
