While I was out zeroing today I noticed I only had three ear plugs stored in my forward grip. I got to thinking what else I could fit in there. Later on, I noticed my rifle needed oiled. As I was driving to pick up targets, I noticed and MRE tabasco bottle in my change tray.  So...



I have since filled the bottle with militec, as that is the oil I have right now.

And on to the rifle.  





BRD is expensive.

Try clearing a jam or double feed with that flexible otis pull through cable.

Its for clearing malfs.

Easiest way to clear a stuck case, put the rod in the barrel and mortar the buttstock on the ground with vigor while the bolt is back.

I don't have a scale right now so I'm not exactly sure, but I'd guess ~12 pounds. Thats not what gets heavy, though.

I just use the earplugs if I manage to forget my two primary earpro. But if you roll one up and stick it in the muzzle it keeps foreign objects out of the bore. They also can be doubled over and stuck in the gap behind the trigger guard on a regular AR if someone is complaing of the discomfort.

I think when your optic out prices most, if not all rack grade rifles, you should be somewhat immune to accusations of TAPCO intercourse.

Years ago I tried to get LaRue to incorporate a way to store a cleaning rod inside their handguard similar to an AK.
That way you could at the least have two rod sections you could slap together if you needed it.
Maybe someday someone will do it.

Yeah I would definitely find a screw-together sectional rod that would hide in the stock or hand guard.

Then again, I am in no position to criticize that kit in ANY shape or form.

You know if they modded a couple of their rail cover clips it would be an easy add on with little cost....

I dunno... seems like the rod would be a huge PITA.  I'd stick it in my gear.  It's not like I'm clearing that malf in direct contact anyway.

Oh I agree, it could be done fairly easy a few ways. Especially if you designed a rod specifically for that application.

Kinda crappy pics.
2 1/2 rod sections (long enough for a carbine length barrel, although a third would fit.)
.223 diameter brush
Patch attachment.
Oil and solvent bottle on the other side (not pictured)
Patches in side compartment.

A little much for what?  Some folks spend thousands on a Harley pretending to be a tough guy.  Some like cool-ass tactical gear that could actually be useful some day. Seems like a pretty decent hobby to me!

Op please explain how you attached the cleaning rod. I shoot Tula a lot and always seem to leave the rod at home. If I don't clean the chamber, I rip a case head off after three or four mags.

I got the Idea here
I modded the technique a little, but I need to figure out a reusable rear attachment point instead of cutting the ziptie every time.

If there was secret sqirrel shit going on there wouldn't be pics on the internet. But you got me. I grew up on a acreage in the middle of nowhere with dysfunctional parenting. Ny bro was a computer geek, I did guns. I only NEED my Glock 19, but seeing as this is America I figured why the hell not?
I wich I had pics of the smoke grenade pouch on the  back of the plate carrier with it open. It carries a can of mountain dew and a clif bar.  You really should try the white chocolate and macadamia nut clif bars. they're really good.

I don't carry it for me. I carry it for the blokes who think a stuck case could never happen to them, but inevitably does.  I don't shoot wolf or tula anymore, either.

Most of that 10000 comes from the optics, which have nothing to do with the operation of the bolt,etc.

You have a very nice rifle and some really cool gear, very tastefully done.  I noticed you are using a Centurion barrel, I have a couple of them in both midweight and lightweight.  What kind of accuracy does your's yield?  Factory or handloads?

I got about an inch and an eighth ten shot group with PRVI 75gr OTM at 100 yards with a Mk 4 Leupold 6.5-20x50. I have been meaning to try different ammo at longer ranges, but whenever I get of work it wams that its blowing 15+ mph.  Then I lent the scope to a friend for a bolt gun of his, so eventually I might get around to more testing (eventually)

The OP looks like he runs his gear relatively hard, given that mags and ammo are the weak point in the rifle "system" it would be in his benefit to have the tools to address a malfunction.  It is up there with purposely inducing jams and malfunctions to practice clearing them.  
I am sure your RRA is dependable as clockwork but at some point it like every other mechanical thing it will fail.  When it does you should probably have the tools on hand to deal with it.
