My RDB is supposed to arrive Tuesday.  What sights or optics are the most commonly used on these weapons.  I have scopes and sights on my AR's, but this is my first bullpup. All information is greatly appreciated.  And if this horse has been beaten to death I am sorry.

the vortex razer 1-6x is commonly seen on the gun out of kel-tec's camp; what chad enos runs on it.  it seems marketing favored vortex optics in the 1-4x to 1-6x varieties...razer, strike eagle & pst.  for home defense, which may get laughs here, i'd likely go red dot...aimpoint, trij mro or cheaper alternatives like holosun or vortex sparc ar appear ideal.

my LGS is a vortex dealer so i'm waiting on the new amg uh-1 to arrive at the end of this month.  i'll definitely test drive it on my rdb and fs2000 and hopefully x95 if i'm able to snag on by then.

if your RDB is going to be a range toy then it seems magnified optics almost always end up replacing red dot solutions.

anyway, enjoy your RDB...it is one smooth shooting bullpup.

I just received my RDB today.  Is there a way to find out manufacture date from the serial number? It appears to be well made and balanced quite well.  I will take it to the range on Thursday.

I have the PA 1-6 with the KISS reticle, and so far I'm really liking that combo.

I went with the Bushnell 1-4x AR scope with BTR FFP reticle...though I'm still waiting to receive my RDB to try it out
