I won't be buying it. Jon changed his mind about selling it to me.

I offered to buy your .58 for your price. Why do you think I wouldn't be happy with another one just like it?

I said I wanted it, and sold the scope off the MR to start getting the money together.

Why did you even offer it to me?

true its just its a right hand gun being shot lefty, i just dont think you will like it after i finish. The sights are the biggest deal since i know you have a bad time using them. The more i thought about it, the more i knew you wouldnt like it. Its better to wait and see if a lefty comes along.

That's why I had you try it left handed to see if the sights lined up. I wanted to make sure the stock didn't have any cast off. So, being a right handed gun wouldn't matter a bit. All my Renegades were right handed. If you sanded off the cheek piece like I asked it would be just like a Renegade stock, and be fine.

Open sights would have been fine. The 32" barrel helps me focus on the front sight better, and I was planning on using FO sights. Even if they're blurry I can still line up the different color optics.

You should have talked to me about this, before saying you changed your mind. Now i've bought a See All sight for the MR, and I don't know if it's even going to work for me. The sight will be very close to my eye, and i'm not sure I can get it in focus.

I bought one. Durasight seems to be the only company making one. Is that what you use?
