    Hi guys, I'm looking for a little help choosing an optic for my ar. As of now I have rear flip up sights and an A2 style fixed front sight post. I am very proficient with my current iron sight set up, and am ready to move on to an optic. I have about $200 to spend. I know that won't get me a top...
  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I put together a tutorial on "How to camouflage your AR15". I not only like the look but it requires less external cleaning and it offers practical camouflage for hunting. Many people have wondered how I added the fish scale look so I made this video. 1. Clean your rifle with...

    I'm helping a friend of mine put together his first AR. I'm very familiar with building a lower, the only difference is he has a carbon fiber lower. My main concern is the roll pins. I believe it has a molded trigger guard, but that still leaves bolt catch to do. Are there any special...

    So I recen learned that m193 out of a 20 inch barrel may pierce ar500. So set out to see if I could build up a load that would do it at 50 yards out of a 16 inch barrel. I found solid copper 55 grain blemished round for $85 for 1k bullets. I stacked it on 17.2 grains reloader 15 with a heavy...

    When I assembled my AR, it all went smoothly, until I noticed that my stock was visibly canted towards the left. At first I didn't think much of it, then I got to thinking about it. I tore it down, and found that when I tightened castlenut, I torqued the nut so hard that I made the endplate...

    So I fires my xm177 style rifle and realized that the break is useless for both flash and recoil compensation. I was thinking of drilling 4 holes in the base just after the barrel like my zig zag ak74 break. I want to drill 2 at the 12 o'clock and two at the 10 oclock. I am waiting to do my sbr...

    So I am reloading 5.56 for my stg 556. Me being a military guy I usually reload 55 grain fmj or 77 grain smk. But I wanted ideas from the sb masses. I was considering 55 grain vmax or some type of varmint round. This ammo would be for shtf/home defense. I love the 77 grain smk used it overseas...

    Last Saturday I walked into a LGS and saw a hand full of ARs on the Shelf. I looked them all over, but the one that stood out was the Rock River Arms Elite Operator II. After some debate and talking the store down to $1100 out the door i decided to pull the trigger on it. First impressions: Its...

    but anyway, I bought a DPMS Oracle with three 30 round P-Mags, an assault case, 400 rounds of brass ammo, and a MOLLE cleaning kit off of Armslist for $750. Pics will follow soon. This is my second DPMS as I bought a .308 two years ago and never cared for it, but at that price, I couldn't pass...

    I made a video review on my Ruger SR556. You may post your comments and/or inputs here or on the video if you have questions. To sum my video up, The gun is amazing, a bit heavy and chooses ammo. Federal XM193 5.56 runs smoothly independence 5.56 occasionally jams on any regulator setting...
