It works. So I think it would be appropriate to post. Although, no pics as of yet, later tonight hopefully if a friend of my brother's comes by with a digital camera.

Rob, Steve, Dave, and Neil all had influence over the project, direct or indirect. A massive thanks goes to Rob and Dave who define customer service.

A big thanks goes to Swingset, a local ARFcommer for helping me out and providing the opportunities to get this sighted in.
Another big thanks goes to LTCKilgore, another local ARFCommer who stopped by on superbowl sunday to drop of some new gas rings to get me back in the fight..

New Rifle put to gether, what is it? SPR/Recon/bleh bleh, its just a precision ar15 I plan on taking to the Tiger Valley class in april.

This wasn't a 'budget' rifle but I saved money where I could and where I wanted to.

Range Report: It started on friday when I took it out for the first time. 45 rounds in, gas ring failure causing my day to end very quickly.

Today, fixed that with new one-piece gas ring and it shot like a champ. Today it was below freezing, snowing, windy, and I am very new to magnified optics, and I had the groups just at MOA with WWB FMJ.

Cleaned the barrel and scrubbed the BCG down and started with the blackhills. Shot the 73grain Match HP, 75, and 77grainers. It doesn't seem to differentiate between either, but the tighest group was with the 73grain Match. it got realy freaking cold today, and by the time I got into testing the 3 different loads, i couldnt feel my fingers. So, i did my best, tried not to piss away the ammo, but i wanted to break in the rifle ASAP

Pics to come, along with more range reports..



extremely Shitty pics, but better than nothing. Its night, no natural light, not my camera, so no flames..

truly amazing. it really makes me focus on the trigger squeeze. It forces me to find that 2nd stage, so it inturn helps me with breathing.

take the breath as i squeeeeeeezzzee slowly to get to the 2nd stage, hold breath, and let the glass break

steve, i also totally forgot to reimburse for shipping. So I sent it out today with a little extra for you and the guys at adco..

thanks fellas..

i was hoping the midwest was going to have a continuing mild winter, it looks like its going to hit hard in the next couple of months..

so not much shooting to happen, but once the weather breaks, i'll get some better pics and better range reports..
