I was able to shoot my new RRA midlength with YHM can Saturday. Suppression was great and I was very satisfied with the combo. Using the 200 rd Federal 50gr Value Packs, I started at 25yds to get the scope on paper. Moving to 50yds I was able to shoot several groups with most holes touching. I then moved to 100 yards. The temperature was close to 100 degrees but was over 100 on the range. The range has high berms on the side which trap the heat. The mirage from the heat played hell with the Bushnell 3200 fixed 10x. As you can see my 100yd groups opened up big time. This is not a match gun, but a standard RRA midlength. With better ammo, I'm sure she will shoot much better, but I am satisfied with the groups. I have attached a few pics. The (2) 50yds groups are 10 shots 5 suppressed and 5 unsuppressed. The (2) 100yd groups are 1, 12 shot group and 1, 10 shot group. Both are suppressed and un supressed also. There was not much suppressor shift at 50 or 100 yards. As a side note, a guy walked up and said that I had a loud can. I though that he was going to pull out something quieter. Turns out he did not own a can and had never heard a 223 can. I had to school him. I also let him shoot my AAC Pilot on a bolt gun and my LRM M-169. He now knows that 223 cans are made to be hearing safe and not Hollywood quiet.

Glad to see that you got some time for some range therapy.  It will probably be over a month before I get a chance to try the Dissy conversion out.

Looks like the Middy shoots pretty nice.

SSN_Doc ,

I can stop by the house and test run it for you while you are gone. The Middy did shoot well, but I want to run some match ammo and see what it will really do. It sure is quiet at the clinic with no one to talk guns with.LOL!!!!

Remember there are no rear sights or glass on my build.  

How was the trigger with the JP spring?

It's kinda strange no one talks about guns at the clinic.  After a crew member shoots himself, a lot of people want to talk about guns on the sub.  Like,  provide a statement of whether you own any, where they are, and how they are stored.

The JP springs are in the 9mm. The stock trigger is now a very good trigger with a nice light pull. It is the best $9 that I have spent so far. Wow, I did not think that they would dig that far into who owns what and where it is stored. I have decided that I may take those orders to MARSOC in Lejuene. I'll let you know.

Deep-blue, I am stationed in Kings Bay.

Banditman, I was waiting for someone to say something about the grass. That was mowed the day before I took the pics. It is St. Augustine grass. All you do is cut the head off of it. It looks flat when you see it in person, but when you step into it, It is like walking in a deep carpet. What part of FL are you in?

I have the same grass. I have not been home for a week and it has rained everyday I've been gone. I dread mowing it. oh, I am near Lakeland.
