First off, it was 74 degrees and sunny here today in SE Missouri, Mother Nature is certainly menopausal or something. I'm trying to finish up the last 50 sight tools for Tandemkross's order, so busted my butt and got my usual day's worth of work done so I could take advantage of the great weather.

This is without a doubt my favorite AR build...so far anyways. Started with a stripped Del-Ton lower receiver, no-name brand LPK but put JP Enhanced reliability springs in it. Gun-Tec stock kit from Mr. Jason, Keyhole forge stripped upper, Anderson's 1:8 twist 5.56 16" carbine gas system barrel, AIM Surplus NiB BCG, some Chinese brand free float quad rail handguard, GRG muzzle brake, 45 degree offset iron sights a cheapy Barska 6.5-20 AO scope and a few other goodies.

Image

Image

Targets are 3/4" squares printed on standard printer paper. 100 yards, light wind with 9 MPH "gusts" quartering from left to right coming from roughly 10:00 position.

First target is my 55gr Hornady soft point loads, 26grs of BLC-2 OAL of 2.23. First five shots are the group to the left of center, couple clicks of the scope and shot the second group.

Image

Next target is some of the SS109 62gr bullets, not really known for their accuracy. 25.5grs of 8208XBR OAL of 2.24

Image

Made it a decent enough outing, even after the cheap POS factory scope went to crap on the Remington 783...

See!!! I'm not the only one with a Higantic High Powered scope on his AR!! :intello:

The AR looks good Mo - I say you really "done good" with it!! :great:

I like the flag on the dust cover.
What kind of trigger guard is that?
And you have the nice pins to make it easier to take apart. I've been thinking about those - they'd be nice!! :thumb:

You told me about that scope mount a while back and I got one that I put on my "hunting" AR - And it's workin' good so far!!

And those are some might fine groups you shot.
They look pretty darn good to me!!

I kinda suspect you did that just to show us wanna-be sissy's how it's done... :whistle:

It's a 50mm, and the adjustable objective adds to the length as well. I have no complaints at all for a scope that runs under $100. It's crisp and clear even at 20X

NICE! Which grip is that? It looks like it's adjustable for hand size with interchangeable back-straps....or did I miss or forget that thread? :hmmm: :dunno:

Trigger Guard is from Strike Industries, they make them with either a left, a right, or ambi rest for your trigger finger when you're in the "Ready" position.

And I didn't want to seem to be bragging so I didn't post the pic of the 100 yard group for my 68gr Hornady BTHP... :sniper2:

It's an ATI Scorpion X2 recoil reducing. The backstrap is a separate piece made of a softer material, I went with it just due to my large hands, pretty much everything else just felt like I didn't have a good grip on them. It runs around $25. Have them on mine and the wife's AR as well.

Nice
What's the mount?


Cheap Chinese import off ebay.Went with it because all the other ones I tried sat too low to the rail. There are some American made ones that don't have the additional rail on top of the scope mount, but you're looking at four or five times the price and I'm cheap... :dunno:

I get the same feeling. that's one reason why I sorta like the basic plastic grip that comes with most generic LPK's. It seems to have more surface area to grip. :dunno: I'm NOT thrilled with the Ergo grip I got. It's not bad I suppose for a smaller hand and since the first rifle was supposed to be for my wife it seems to work OK. But my hand, like yours, is twice her size. I can wrap my trigger finger around the trigger up to the center joint comfortably. :shock:
