Me too!!......... "

But seriously, I would like details of a "test drive". I'm thinking about one for my "ES" AR102.

Well the mount came in Tuesday around 4:30 PM. First impression was that the mount was larger then I expected. Also this mount is well built, and very solid. I haven't taken the mount outside yet, but do have it set-up, and ready to go. Following are some pictures.

All the stickers are just for fun, and to make the scope standout a bit.
