    New guy building a rifle 2.0

    Ok after 6 weeks of crappy weather I finally got to go to the range. The good news everything works well except the shooter. I'm no Chris Kyle, more like Chris Pratt or maybe Chris Rock. Had the red dot sighted in for 50 yards and using Federal 55grn FMJBT. Group, if you can all it that was about 3 inches high and all the shots where in about 3 inches. Windage was dead on. I could cover all the shots with the palm of my hand. This was the first time shooting an AR and first time shooting a rifle in about 40 years and first time ever from a bench. I couldn't get comfortable maybe the mag was to long, a 20 0r 10 round might have worked. I couldn't get the sand bags adjusted things just didn't feel right. Overall I'm happy. My hat is off to the guys who can shoot MOA with a red dot or back up sights my old eyes can't do it. I'm already plotting my next purchase, just need to pay some bills first so the wife won't leave me.

    Me Want!!!!!!!

    Years ago, more than I care to remember, I worked for a wholesale firearms distributor and we had some of these in stocks. The part that holds the magazine pivots so you could hold it in your right hand with the magazine laying across you fore arm to study it. never had the chance to shoot one did look interesting.

    Best Texas BBQ

    Coopers in new Braunfels between San Antonio and Austin., much better than Rudy's, A little out of the way is Luling City Market BBQ in Luling of I-20. I'm originally from NC and we always had pork bbq, Texas beef is way better.

    Thanks this group is always so helpful. I even remember when someone said to be careful of BRD, that advice I did not heed. Sill planning my next AR purchase.

    Great Sling For Less $$

    Ok newbie question. Do I have to order anything else beside the sling to attach it to my rifle. I have the M-LOK hand guard and magpul stock.
  11. I seem to have the same thing happening with the on/off button mainly off. The other buttons work fine switching from red to green and the brightness is ok.

    replacing cotter pin

    Ok so I took needle nose pliers and tried to squeeze the ends together wound up taking a small hammer and applying pressure got the gap narrowed and put it back into the bolt. I won't take it apart for at least a 1000 rounds and by then I'll have some Knight Industries pins.

    replacing cotter pin

    It slides in but seems to stop short of the hole in the other side of the bolt. Am I making sense?

    replacing cotter pin

    I'm trying to put the firing pin back in the bolt and when I put the cotter pin in to secure the firing pin it goes in about 3/4 of the way and then stops. I tried following the videos on youtube and they have no trouble it just slides in with me of course it binds. any ideas. please hold you laughter and shaking of heads.
