I personally plan to put Magpul's own front and rear sights and co-witness them with a Bushnell holosight (don't think I'll be able to afford an EOTech). Might put on an ATN Gen 1 NV scope for hog and coyote control, but only if money allows. How bout you?

I am thinking of putting a KAC front and rear sight, an EOtech XPS2. I kinda like the remington forearm myself. I will put a shorty VFG on it as well.

Given the weight of the ACR. If I was to actually be able to afford one, I wouldn't buy any optics. Why, because the smallest of optics would make the rifle too heavy.

Gonna go with a set of troy folding sights and an Eotech XPS2.

Didn't really care for the magpul BUIS and the troy's I already have seem to have a clearer sight picture to my old eyes.

Right now I am running a XPS 3-2 and a Eotech 3x magnifier, and the stock MBUS. One thing to note if you are going with a similar set up, before zeroing make 100% sure the charging handle will come all the way back before locking in the optic. I mounted my XPS a slot or 2 too far forward because I didnt want to mess around with my factory location MBUS.

Troy Micros and a T1 or H1 in a LaRue mount eventually. And that's probably about it.

I put a set of Troy sights and an EOTech on mine. I don't like the Magpul plastic sights that came with it and had the Troy's just sitting in my spares box.

OK, maybe I went a little crazy... I mounted a Bushnell 4200 Tactical FFP on some A.R.M.S lever mounts. I tried to boresight it, but my .223 laser was low on juice.

I started at the 50 yard targets, and the first shot was on the paper. Being that the scope was a mil-dot scope and the adjustments were 0.10 mil, it only took 4 shots to put it in the bullseye. If you have never used a First Focal Plane scope, it makes the mil-dots exactly 1 mil at any power, from 6x to 24x.
The adjustments are easy at any range.

Too much scope for the rifle? Probably. But it is quite impressive in its accuracy. Plus you don't need a spotting scope...
