Re: The New Firearm Thread

I picked this Ruger Mark 3 Hunter up last Thursday. All the talk about the new Glock 43 has got me wanting to try a glock out. I plan on building a tack driver 10/22, then im going to buy some kind of glock.

Re: The New Firearm Thread

I'm thinking about picking up a new Sig P320 - local guy has a deal on one with a box of ammo and a carrying case. Going to check it out this week sometime.

I had a stainless 22/45 that I traded off last year also. I regretted it the minute that I did it. I have been looking for a hunter like this one locally and finally found this one last Thursday.

So I'm looking in to purchasing an AR 15 and I have a few questions for everyone.
First of all, what brand do you recommend? I know they are basically all the same principals but there has to be some difference.
Next, what are your inputs on the little dust shield and forward assist? I think the dirtiest it would ever get is if I take it hog hunting in Texas, but I still will clean it nightly. Basically I just want a fun reliable gun that I can shoot accurately and rapidly.. Oh and am tired of paying over a buck a bullet for my 30.06

"Building" them isn't very hard. I prefer that route.

DPMS - cheap to good. S&W - cheap, but better. Colt - good. RRA - good. Bushmaster - good. Armalite - very good. LaRue/Noveske - $$$, but damn good.

Generally, avoid the cheapest of cheap and you'll be fine unless you happen to get the rare lemon. If I were to buy a factory rifle, I'd pick RRA or Armalite.

I've had one time where I needed the dust cover and was glad to have it (3 o'clock 30MPH winds+dust in a High Power match). ETA - these are great: https://www.creedmoorsports.com/shop...FETY_FLAG.html. I use the forward assist to check the fit of my resized cases in my chamber, otherwise meh.

How much '06 do you shoot? Have you considered reloading?

Re: The New Firearm Thread

I agree on building, pretty fun too and can be cheaper than buying as far as quality of components. it's addicting building one since you can add any part you want to build whatever type of rifle you want to your needs.

Forward assist, i dont really use it, and really if you have to absolutely use it, then you have other issues to address with the gun IMO. but at the same time it doesn't hurt to have it.

My 06 is just a bolt action hunting rifle, I bought it pretty recently so I'm still trying to get a feel for it (I've shot shotguns my whole life). One days worth of shooting is about 40 rounds. And yeah I've thought about reloading, but I'm only 18 and still live with my parents, and they aren't very supportive of me owning guns.. So basically when I move out haha

Re: The New Firearm Thread

I have had a couple, my first was a Colt 6920 never had any trouble, my second was a RRA and never really had trouble...But I never ran them hard...100-200 rounds at a time, spaced out, well lubricated well cleaned...

My current is "built" on an el-cheapo S&W stripped lower, Spikes upper, Wilson heavy barrel, Larue LPK, BCM gas block, BCM BCG, Troy stuff BCM stuff Magpul stuff...

Ive run it HARD... Ive run it wet, dry, soaked in water in the rain, dirty dusty, Ive run 750+ rounds at a time through it, rapid 5-8 mag dumps... It has about 7500+ rounds through it now, about 2000 reloads, I havent had 1 single FTF or FTE, Ive had exactly 2 failure to fires, both of them were with .223 Tula... I can still get it to group inside a half dollar at 100yds with steel cased ammo if I take my time... Ive never run match ammo through it because Ive never seen the point...

I will without a doubt put a BCM BCG in every rifle I have from here on out though...

Re: The New Firearm Thread

DPMS Sportical?




The only time I've seen a loose gas key was on one of those. If the screws are snug and staked, it's okay. I'd check the screw under the gas block as well. When in doubt, Loctite.

If it's new, give the bore a cleaning, and get the moving parts damp with oil. ETA: A little mod I still ought to do is put RTV on the charging handle between it and the upper receiver - blocks any gas that may get blown into your eyes.

Let us know when BRD sets in. ;D

Do you wear corrective lenses or have astigmatism?

What do you not like about your current sight?

If I wanted a "do everything" optic, I'd fo for a TA11 ACOG. It's supposed to have the second longest eye relief and moderate magnification. The donut reticle seems like a hybrid between a red dot and the aperture sights I have a lot of experience with.

Yeah I wear contacts, but I already dumped the red dot, especially after I shot it and couldn't even come close to hitting paper. Even adjusting it didn't do anything. I just bought a low mag scope, and I'm going to throw a red dot on the side rail for close targets. I hate wasting time, and spending a few hours at the range trying to figure that red dot out and getting nowhere pissed me off to the poing that I had to get my 3006 out and take out the bullseye on both my 50 and 100 haha

Re: The New Firearm Thread

How big a target did you use?

Have you boresighted it? (I take the upper off, bolt out, set it on bags, and eyeball it.) Unless the mount or erector was ****ed, it oughta be serviceable.

It was a pretty big target, I'd say about 18inches by 18 inches of paper. And it was bore sited and still shitty
