I would get an aimpoint micro t1 or some sort of aimpoint.

Any suggestions for optics and backup sights?
That's a nice looking rifle. What's the actual going rate on these? I understand the normal SR556 is going for the list price on the 556E, so I would hope that this is significantly less expensive than that.

List is $1369, I paid $972 ordering from galleryofguns.com. I called around and price to walk in and buy one from a local store was around $1100.

Adding tritium Troy Battlesights bumped the price up around what a regular one would be without the tritium and with the big heavy quad-rail. Win-win IMHO.

For optics, I'm looking at the AimPoint micro T-1 and Trijicon ACOG. (leaning heavily in the ACOG direction)

SR556 with ACOG:


it was super bright outside and being under a canopy - this was playing tricks with the camera's exposure meters so sorry 'bout that.
I was shooting at a target 100 yards away and verifying each shot. All were very close to bullseye.

Very happy with the ACOG performance, I can see why the military would use it.

Cool! Thanks for the video and review.

I've since had a look at both optics and decided on ACOG.

I'm hoping to be able to afford an ACOG next year. I loved the one I had when I was deployed to Fallujah in 2006, could've made a world of difference if more people had them in Fallujah in 2004 time frame.

Check out the aimpoint Pro. You can find them with the mount for around $400.

I've been searching ebay and craigslist looking for a deal. They were out there but often the listings were missing information about the color, reticle, condition, etc. Then I found that
Amazon.com has them new Amazon.com has them new
for a decent price.


I borrowed from my pickup truck savings and ordered one. Now I need to pay myself back before my pickup dies.

That is a nice rifle. I've been eyeing the SR-556cla. It's the carbine version of the 556e.
