Model-1 rules! they put together a 16" dissipator kit for me with a few upgrades, and got it in a week and a half. Great service, very direct and to the point. I will order from them again soon!

I'm up in Pensacola... Think more of southern Alabama.... It hasn't even rained here yet!

But it will start soon. Should just be windy and rainy for us.

As for the range report, I hope to have my dies soon... then I just need to find the time to load and get to the range...

Well I hope everything goes as good as it can for you guys.
let me know how that range day turns out.
I know what you mean about finding time to load and then get out to use it.
Deal with that myself a lot.

Glad to know all is well in FL, and also I'm glad to know that Model 1 is good, b/c I'll be hopefully ordering a CAR light weight kit from them soon.

The group on the military 25 meter zero target was 3 rounds in under 1/2 inch with all three holes virtually touching. For grins I then fired a 20 round magazine at the zero target. The result was a 20 round 2" group dead on. Needless to say, I am quite pleased with their product and customer service.

I got 5 kits from them and their quality and customer service is the reason I keep buying their kits.

My first AR build was using a Model 1 kit on a Bushy lower. The fit was good and friends told me that it looked like a factory gun (yeah mil-spec finish). Only problem I had with it was the mis-alignment of the barrel/fsb assembly. My zero was set with the rear sight almost 1/4" from the right plate. Not a big deal to me at the time. Have since sold the AR and will build another. No problems with Model 1 and I like their prices.

Make sure you check the barrel/fsb alignment first thing so that you can get it fixed ASAP. That seems to be the only consistent problem they have.

Top_prop-

FYI - I have a 6mm PPC with 1 in 12 twist and it will stabilize 87 gr bullets no problem so I think you can easily go heavier with your 1 in 10. I found shorter, less streamlined bullets (i.e. non boattail) will stabilize better than the more streamlined bullets with the same bullet weight. Of course, those are the lower BC bullets.

Speaking of Model 1, (I really like their service, BTW) has anyone put together a .300 /221 fireball kit from them?
