The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Did I miss something? Did I read too quickly?
What happened when you zeroed, then removed, and then replaced your choice of optical sight?
Was zero maintained?


BTW: I am in awe of your photo manipulations.
Your ever-changing graphics were as interesting as your text.

I guess that I did forget to cover that. Although I did not get to try removing and re-installing the scope, I did remove and re-install the red dot sight. The shift in POI was minimal and I added three clicks of left-windage. With that said, I don't know if it was the sight or me just loosing concentration.  I will say that because of the top rail, The red dot sight sat flat against it and that made the sight a bit more stable than trying to fumble around with a round receiver with very little groove; there is a lot more "meat" for tightening the sight.

When I put three rounds in one hole at twenty-five yards, while using the scope, I was very pleasantly surprised. Henry has done a very good job with the AR-7, and their customer service is top notch.
