  1. Thank you for the birthday wishes! Heading into my 45th year with a new DI 45ACP pistol.
  2. Just thought I'd drop this here: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?year=2014&bill=5956 Looks like WA State may allow SBRs in the near future. From what I've read & understand the bill just needs to pass the house, and 90 days after the bill is passed it will be effective.
  3. Thank you Dan! BCG micro slicked and weapon cerakoted by Amelon.
  4. The way I understand it is, with first focal the reticule allows easier ranging due to the hash marks being "accurate" at all zoom levels and virtually no mental math involved. For second focal the reticule hash marks are only "accurate" at one particular zoom level and any other zoom besides that one will require you to know your subtensions & calculations.
  5. Have you checked out the LaRue Tactical RISR (Reciprocating Inline Stock Riser)? http://www.laruetactical.com/larue-tactica...ine-stock-riser
  6. Troy Ambidextrous Magazine Release, Battle Arms Development Ambidextrous Safety Selector and Black Widow Arms NoMar QD Plate.
  7. Group buy? My tools for this install are a razor blade, luck and linoleum flooring. ETA: yeehaw... post 100!
  8. I feel a difference, as do the other people that have fired the A5. I've put both of the uppers that I mentioned onto a H2 carbine lower that I have and have felt the difference. One factor that could come into play with the carbine lower used is the less than smooth trigger. The two A5 lowers have much nicer triggers, one a Geissele and the other LWRC. The people I shoot with comment on the way the A5 shoots... smooth, less impulse, feels like a 22lr. We shoot a lot of mixed ammo, .223 and 5.56, 55gr to 62gr, some new, some twenty+ years old. I like my A5 systems!
  9. Go with the VLTOR A5 set up. I've got two "A5" lowers dedicated to an 18" & 14.5" mid-length gassed barrels and both function wonderfully. The one with the 18" barrel is an Addax ZK (GPU) and the 14.5" is a Franken-rifle (DIGS), both are awesome. By no means am I an expert with this platform, but I really like the A5 buffer system compared to the standard M4 buffer system.
  10. This is the weapon Dan coated for me: http://www.ar15armory.com/forums/topic/124166-fedex-stopped-by-this-morning/ Very well done.
  11. I prefer the Mod-4 medium latch that is offered. The extra purchase that the medium latch provides is nice, but not overkill, which I think the larger latch is. Being a left handed shooter I find it quite functional reaching over the top with my right hand to charge/clear the weapon. No problems, from a lefties view point, with blading my palm or using the index finger and thumb pinch methods.
  12. It's the one that is on sale. The Mil-Dot and BDC models are $429.99.
  13. Automagically the armory site is accessible today. I truly do appreciate the heart-felt concern about this plight of mine.
  14. I'm using the Vltor A5, the standard A5 buffer (5.3 ounces) and a BHW 18" mid-length gassed barrel on my ZK. I've got around four thousand rounds down the pipe and it has not had any hiccups.
