Hey guys, my name is Zach and I recently got my first AR15. I have had it for a few months, but I have not had a lot of time to get out and shoot it due to my military duties as of late but I am getting around to shooting a lot more. I got a really good deal on 1K rounds of .223. Wolf Gold, for 320 from a local shop. That is including a 10% military discount as well.
I am really looking forward to using this forum. I am fairly new to the rifle world, I have had a few pistols and shoot them quite often.
I am currently just using my Magpul MBUS flip up sights until I get accurate with them I will not get a red dot or scope. Anyone agree with this? I guess I find it important to be efficient with the practical sights, before moving on.
I know that I am looking forward to find some information on this forum that can give me a better break down of the rifle and the different components and how they work. Any suggestions on looking at something in particular to get me more familiar with my rifle? I am heading back to where I am originally from in Indiana for a few weeks so I will be looking forward to doing some shooting outside and not having to pay to shoot like I do here in VA.
Here are a few pics of the rifle I got and a description the best I can describe it.
I didn't have a pic without my pistol in it. Sorry about that...
Spikes Tactical Multi-Cal color-filled lower
Palmetto State Armory Upper
Palmetto 14inch/1/7 twist barrel
Yankee Hill Free Float Diamond Quad Rail
Palmetto Trigger and LPK
Blackhawk Butt stock
Magpul BMUS sights
Magpul forward angle grip (not a fan of the fore grip)
I also got some PMAG’s and Troy magss
My buddy polished the trigger which made me nervous because I know you can mess the sears up but he didn’t!!
Welcome! Nice looking rifle with quality components. I think you're doing it right, get used to the sights before getting an optic, Have fun!
This was an accidental post, I only meant to post my second thread. Is there a way to get this one deleted mod's?
