    FS2000 optic

    Any of you run the factory optic? How do you like it?

    Been mulling buying a FS2000 off Gunbroker for a while now, but they only ever have the picatinny railed version without factory optic.

    The factory optic version is different than the railed version? It's not just a matter of slapping a factory Standard optic on a Tactical railed version. Apologize if I'm misinterpreting your question?

    I have the FS Standard w/ the factory optic. It took me a long time to warm to it, but it has grown on me. I (now) actually like the reticle. It certainly doesn't have as quick of acquisition as a RDS, but it works well enough. I will say, that, for me, the biggest drawback is no illumination.

    I've grown to like the German #1 style reticle too akitainu but I hear ya on the target acquisition... not as fast as red dots and tough in low light conditions with dark back drops.

    I believe I read that the hood from the standard will not fit on the tactical rail properly.

    That is correct. The hood only fits the Standard.

    The FS2000 Standards are selling on Gunbroker for $2400-$3200. My Buddy just bought one last week..

    I'm currently running one of the factory optics.
    The eye relief and glass clarity is pretty decent, and points quite nicely. I also found the crude irons on top of the plastic cover to be pretty intuitive to use for quick close shots.
    One downside is that there's no illumination on the optic.
    Also, if you take the cover off, it looks like it's held together by some black glue. I haven't had any problems with it though, and it seems sturdy enough. The military f2000 users don't seem to mind it either.

    I have an OD green FS2000. Can I put the factory optic on it? If so, where is the best place to buy the factory optic?
