Scootr - those AEV's are so cool lookin!

Question: they have a 4.7" b/s with a +10mm offset - anybody know how that compares to a stock Ronin II with 6.25"b/s and 50.8mm offset with 1.5" spacers?

sounds like JBA has is heart right. I have had few different purchases come with things like that. A place i use to order firearm accesaries always send me literature and so on. Me being in school to getting a degree in christian education so I can pastor a church it really means a lot to me. It makes it to when i have a choice, i will always give them my repeat bussiness.
