You get an optic on that yet? I recently acquired a vortex amg uh-1 gen 2 holo sight for my 300bo that I'm really liking, i want to get a unity riser for it, after trying out the unity micro mount it feels so much more comfortable with less neck strain

Yo. I hate to be that guy, but the first time I ever fired a shotgun, I shot it off in the house on accident. I blew a hole through my wifes dresser and shredded all her clothes in that drawer. Two th

Put an EOTech EXPS3-2 with an EOTech 3x magnifier behind it. Hate putting that much weight on an otherwise feather weight gun, but it balances well and with the swivel mount on the magnifier I get the best of both worlds as far as distance. Still leaning towards getting an RMR in a high mount though. 

Also swapped out the BCG for TiN coated one from Salient and added a Whistle Tip to protect the threads until the can gets released.

That is sick man! I like the rmr a lot but the whole having to take it off to replace the battery thing kinda sucks, some of the higher end holosun optics with the rmr footprint are looking attractive due to being able to change the batteries without having to remove and rezero

I can see that being an argument on pistol, but I try to re-zero my optics regularly anyways so I don’t mind it with a quick detach mount. Not sure I can throw a made in China optic on my Gucci guns.

Makes sense. I was kinda apprehensive about holosun at first as well being made in China and all, but stuff I've read recently has me looking hard at them. I get the Gucci factor, always looks weird to see guys running $150 red dots on kac guns 😂

They seem to have a great warranty so probably fine but I haven’t cut corners on the rest of it, so not going to do so on the optic. Already have twice the cost of an RMR with the setup on there now anyways.

Have you had a chance to run it at all yet? I still have not fired my 300 build but found myself with ~500 rounds of s&b subs so I hope to get out this week or next 


Yeah, I’ve probably pushed about 500 rounds through it. Insanely accurate considering how short the barrel is. I’m trying my best to get out and shoot steel once a week or so. Mainly shooting my AR and my EDC G17 since I have plenty of ammo for both and 300BLK wasn’t all that cheap before all the Covid shit. Just got all my reloading kit setup again so planning to roll my own. Have a Noveske 300BLK pistol build I’m thinking of reworking into a copy of their Ghetto Blaster, but no time or money right now.

No doubt, I started in an ipsc league like 2 weeks prior to covid hitting, i havent been shooting since February but i just joined a private outdoor club so I should be able to get some more practice time in. Wolf was supposed to come out with steel 300 rounds but i don't think those ever landed unfortunately

Order some snap caps off Amazon and put a half hour a day (or longer if you can spare it) into dry firing. Not the same, but you’ll still get a lot out of it. You can definitely practice transitioning and reloads, as well as burn your trigger pulls into muscle memory.

*Not sure I’d run steel case through a nice gun. Too dirty and probably less accurate than standard plinking rounds. Look into reloading. You’ll pay for the equipment quick if you’re shooting much 300BLK, especially if you have access to .223 brass. Primers are hard to find right now though.

Optics questions for folks.

I have an astigmatism, so red dot feels out. I've been planning on getting PA's 1x6 FFP w/ ACSS reticle and running offset irons, but I'm now thinking about the PA Cyclops with a magnifier with inline backup irons.

Thoughts?

I have the same eye issue, but not all red dots are affected by that. There’s three primary red dot types and the holographic ones are most affected. Try a reflex site. 
 

Not sure I’d run irons offset. Generally irons are for pushing out so offsetting them doesn’t make as much sense to me as offsetting an RMR that’s built for rapid target acquisition so likely closed in. Guess you can’t co-witness under magnification and also probably unlikely your optic would fail so kind of a tough one. Personally I’d prefer to run a magnifier behind a red dot than run permanent magnification, but I suppose it’s a matter of your intention with that gun and the distance your planning to run most your shots at.

Gun dudes. I am looking into utilizing what's left of my second amendment rights . Now that I know the redneck asshole shop owner was just being a prick about my record disabling my ability to purchase.  According to extensive research nothing on my record should fail my application, and anything over 7 years wouldn't flag anyways. No violent crimes, no drugs, duis, or domestics.  I haven't been bagged since 2012. 

 

Hoping to find some direction. Here are some things I want a firearm for. 

 

- home/self protection

- duck/goose hunting

- future potential civil war ?

 

I most likely already know the ideal firearm for these things but what brands, budgets(reasonable affordable), purchase locations? Online vs. local gunstores? 

Used to run a gun shop before the Army;  any felony/prohibitive offense on your record will flag regardless of how old. We had dudes get denied and further hemmed up because of a DUI from the 90s they forgot about. Also when we would get a denial for someone, it didn't tell us why. Even if we called the PICS line (PA instant check system, supported by NICS) They wouldn't/couldn't tell us.   Now also as an FFL we had a right and were encouraged to gauge the situation and make a call regardless of what the check says. If you didn't pass a vibe check we could just say your shit was denied, we weren't required to sell you a gun if we didn't want to. so that's probably what Fudd ass Leroy is on your shit about. Fudds love that excuse because they're afraid of anyone younger than themselves.  

 

Above all else, fuck gun laws. Fuck 12. Buy a lower or off the shelf AR from a person to person sale and build a AR of your liking.  Buy poly 80 glock lowers and build your own glock. Train with them and keep them a secret. There's always a way.

Finished:


153336920_ImagefromiOS(28).thumb.jpg.16534b9e22751b1b2407fa2558ca3baf.jpg

 

It finished a little different than I expected, but mostly due to me wanting to finish/cost:

  • aero 16" barrel with 15" s-one atlas handguard
  • bravo company VFG
  • aero m4e1 lower
  • cryptic coating bcg blem (i couldn't find what the blem was)
  • larue mbt 2 stage curved bow trigger
  • larue lpk
  • magpul gen 1.1 grip
  • magpul ctr with Larue RISR and enhanced butt pad
  • armaglock gen4 with kingpin
  • enhanced buffer tube with h2 buffer (instead of jp silent)
  • primary arms 1-6x24mm LPVO SFP
  • midwest industries qd mount (this thing is awesome)
  • magpul 10rnd mags with rjk coupler replacing the baseplates
     

Not pictured is the surefire warden/warcomp that's on order, and no BUIS yet.

Whole thing sure wasn't cheap to build, and I still need a few last things. But, it's functional, and I'm takin it out potentially this weekend time permitting.

I'm wet. After my fling with MK18/CQBR style, this is what I'm leaning towards next. Let us know how the optic does. I've heard primary arms go both ways.

Was waiting on shit to get normal to start in on an Aero Precision build, despite probably having four or five Seekins Precision lowers stashed. 
 

Anyone have any god links to how to tune a gas block? Been seeing malfunctions in one of my AR’s and thinking the bolt is just cycling too hard. Wondering if there’s something better than trial and error to fix it.

@RUNINE- will let you know. I was mostly planning on FFP, but we'll see how I do with this one.
 

@misteraven- r/aeroprecisioninstock is your friend. On tuning, everything I've seen suggests some amount of trial and error. My guess is you can come up with some rough estimates of what pressure is being pushed back into the chamber with some basic fluid dynamics (completely ignoring thermodynamic externalities) as a way of setting benchmarks even if it is just more precise trial and error.
