What's that mount you got on there?
Link Posted: 8/25/2005 2:46:51 PM EDT
Can someone tell me exactly why those stocks are good?

I think they look gash, like a robocop cast-off.

Mind, liking the standard M4 stock does have financial benefits!!

Link Posted: 8/25/2005 2:47:41 PM EDT
Maybe you all love it because of the length, it's long aint it....
Link Posted: 8/25/2005 2:51:32 PM EDT
it is a little longer than th standard stock but its RIGID!!!!! SOLID!!! with no movement whatsoever,

The mount is actually the standard 30mm rings but the upper reciever has a higher mount base, i think its the DPMS highrise reciever, ideal for scoped use,

Got a high top receiver myself, experimenting with different mounts tells me that I need the scope much further forward (about flush with the rear charging handle). MB has am extended scope rail that I am going to try out..............

Yeah, saw one he'd had done last week. It's a special chemical blackening for stainless.
I'm very tempted myself.

Mark

hmm looks nice,

I'll have a chit chat with the firm that supplies our blackening supplies......

I know they do aluminium black.. i wonder about stainless....

Went to the range today and thought I'd introduce Clayo's barrel to some other range users:

My little Bushmaster carbine, shot like a dream today, I just love that rifle.

Then we showed it where it should be looking:

300yd point, Bisley

And finally we introduced it to the X-Ring, just so it'd know what it was meant to aim for;

BTW, that's target-hunter doing the introductions, thanks Nick.


Steve, I'll call you.
Matt
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 4:23:44 PM EDT
Matt you are such a tease

Is this gonna be the barrel that travels the UK ...Brighton/London etc and we get to see pics of it doing the UK tour?

I'd like to see the barrel visit Wales....Museum of welsh life St Fagans

On a more serious note Matt
I notice you shooting surplus ammo....do you ever have extraction problems after shooting a few rounds?
My reloads are great to extract and with a clean rifle surplus ammo extracts fine but after about 50-60 rounds the surplus ammo becomes difficult to extract

Is yours 5.56 or .223

Curious

My little bushmaster is so old that it is probably a 243 by now. (most likely 5.56, I bought if 'nearly-new' off a guy giving up shooting many years ago.
Seriously, it has always shot RG well, it scored a 663x800 yesterday with fat iron sights and no sling, on the second 600 string it scored 90% (the 1st string was nearer 70%). Just lucky I guess. None of my other ARs shoot RG as well, but then I don't ask them to or expect it. Right ammo choice for the gun/type of shooting.

It will occationally get stiff after 40-50 rounds of very rapid fire, but not always (but then so do I). On one occation and a family outing to the range we managed to get over 200 rounds through it in about 10 minutes. It got so hot that the moderator bush melted! Streetfighter was there with his carbine and didn't have anyextraction problems either.

But then the reason I took the carbine and shot RG was that I got back from Cumbria late on Friday and couldn't be bothered to reload any, and I didn't have enough ammo for the match. Circumstances!

ETA: I mentioned that the rifle shot well, it had nothing very little to do with me!

Welcome to the world of (nearly) AR ownership!

Once you joint the 'club' you have free rein to take the pi** out of any other owner (or nearly owner), and are free to start any 'My <Insert AR part here> is better than yours' discussion!

(I regularly get stick for only having 2.5 ARs...)

I'm expecting pics to be posted today of the finished article !


2.5

Explain. ( post pics, if poss ).

OK Taffy,






No, I couldn't do that to Clayo. Scousers have already lost Owen this week, I'm afraid that if they lost something else so soon, there may be trouble.

We could say Clayo that you've been gunzumped

I hope we get to see some pics of you shooting it too

If you send that rifle to Liverpool, the next time you see it, it'll be up on bricks, burned out and the pistol grip'll be missing
