Both my 7.62 & 5.56 are 16" & I kind wish I'd gone 18" on the 7.62. Not sure it'll make a difference here in Mi since 1000+ ranges are very had to come by.

I'm switching back to a PRS on the 7.62, I just prefer it over the CTR & RISR on the 7.62. I'm thinking about a different stock for the 5.56, but it's scoped so eye relief is an issue. Anyone running anything other than a PRS or CTR w/RISE on a scoped OBR 5.56? Suggestions on what other stock to look at?



interested in your thoughts on the change... considering a similar move.



I just got my shipping notice on the PRS, so I'll be early next week before I get it on & probably a bit longer before I can get it to the range. I guess Mobius will probably have the first report...

How much can you get out of selling a kidney??

Hopefully enough to buy one of each!! I'm very sad knowing I can't get one yet... I'd have to make it my only rifle by trading my current 5.56 & 7.62 rifles for one... Eventually one will be mine. Oh yes. It WILL be mine... (Wayne's World paraphrase)

nice looking rifle, any reason you went with the Aimpoint / PRS...im assuming there will be a magnified optic in your future?

Well, the PRS was chosen instead of the A2 stock...I"m in NY so no sliding stocks for us. I also like the PRS, as I'm 6'4" and the adjustability is nice.

And yes, there is an optic coming (Vortex PST 4-16 FFP)...just need to let the card and wife cool off a bit. I also ordered the LT offset T1 mount, so I'll mount the PA Micro (T1 clone) on that for up close and the optic for precision work...no BUIS for this rifle. The LT mount that it's currently on will go to my wife's S&W MP15 .22lr with another PA Micro.

Thanks so much, the OBR is a beauty and I look forward to a long relationship with her.

Be good,
TomK

That's not gray. It's a combo of foliage and FDE.

Right now it's a loaner optic, it's a cruel joke of a scope. It's a Mk4 4.5-14 FFP TMR. So basically mildot, with MOA turrets, MOA turrets that are half MOA adjustments. Ugh.

It'll get replaced with the Leupold Mk6 3-18 H58 when that's released.
