And holy fuckles. The recoil with that thing (using the stock) must absolutely suck. Maybe I should have purchased the telescoping one...
I'm convinced that Knoxx needs to make a side-folding stock based on their Breachergrip. If you absolutely hate yours, the Phoenix Kicklite stocks are pretty legit.

Eh, the Phoenix is alright. Was shooting mine today with magnum buck and slugs. Never really noticed a reduction in recoil over a regular stock.

So lets say i have a double feed..I drop the mag, pull the CH to pull BCG back, check chamber, insert mag?

I mean the common problems i have with my AR are failure to feed and double feeds...but theres also failure to extracts...what other problems are there?

ALSO: Is there any reason not to go with a lightweight barrel over a medium profile?
Drop the mag, lock the bolt to the rear, observe (fingerbang it if time is of the essence) then put it back to rockin' and a-rollin'

Invest in some better mags. Shouldn't be getting those double-feeds.

Well i was using old beat up USGI surplus "LAW ENFORCMENT/MILITARY USE ONLY" magazines. Now I have brand spanking new Brownells/D&H alum 30 rounders and I might pick up some PMAGs here soon.

So for a pistol reload, I use the slide release. As i bring my mag into the reciever, my gun tilts down into the proper grip where i hit the release with my support thumb.

So LW question, wont that exsasperate the warping of the barrlel under a few mag dumps, or is barrel warping a myth?

What do you mean by barrel warping? Barrel movement while firing or the barrel getting hot and changing where it hits?

Barrel warping is a concern if you have a FA. Semi auto, good luck getting it red hot.
What do you want this AR to be, light and handy or a boat anchor that's sub moa? I vote light and handy with good accuracy.

I warping as getting it hot enough to change the dynamics of the barrel when it cools. you know how if you get metal hot enough you can bend/shape it? like that..or warping your brake rotors type of thing.

This is for my shtf/bugout/zombie duty rifle...so accurate out to distance (say 300-600 at max) but light and nimble enough for cqb...

i know, I know...pipe dream...

What's a pipe dream about having a light gun that can shoot to 600?

The question is can you shoot to 600.

I'm getting ready to place an order for some AR mag holders to put on the battle belt. For those of you that use them do you prefer the short or tall? Why?

Thanks!

Short. Holds 20s and 30s that way, and I don't use anything bigger...for now. Which holders? Have anyone used the ITS tactical hard plastic holders?

That makes good sense on the 20 rounders.

LA Police Gear is having a pretty good sale on the Maxpedition ones right now. Single short pouches for $6.50 and short doubles for $9.00. Thought I would pick up a few.

Anyone know where I can get one of those triple level bulk bins with scoop-out dispensers on top and a open bin at the bottom? Saw them at Winco, and I now want two for my room, to fill with ammo and the bins below with assorted flavors of pistol and rifle mags. By that I mean AR on the right, Glock on the left with training ammo in the bottom bins.

Short. Gives you more magazine to grab, which is really nice when you are trying to do a quick reload.

Its the same problem/different solution as to why I didn't like using Glock 19 mags in my mag pouches, but the G17 mags were great in the same pouches.

So not to use ZS as a tutor service or something, but I'm just finishing up the rough draft of a paper that's advocating for national concealed-carry laws. If you're interested in reading it, shoot me a PM and I'll send a copy your way when I'm done.

Forcibly in the market for some new sights since my front sight fell off shooting on Sunday. This factory plastic front/meprolight rear temporary configuration is lame as fuck. Looks like I'm biting the bullet on some Triji HD's just have a quick question that probably won't change my mind anyway.

Prefacing by saying I was just told how typical three-dot pistol sights work a couple of months ago. I thought you put the center dot on the center of the target, not the top of the front sight blade. :clownshoes: Also three dot's dick with my eyes since I'm left eye dominant, making it a bit harder to distinguish front from rear.

IIRC if I remember correctly somebody here said the HD's were designed to use the center dot on the center of the target, which would adapt well with my software issues. Also looks like the rear is just plain black during the day which should help my front sight focus a lot. Looks like at night from google images you get some dim rears with a bright freaking front. Are all of the above true?

Also was thinking going all black post and notch since that sounds like the best way to fix my issues using the sights properly and costs 1/3. I really don't care about price, I cheaped out once and paid, not doing that twice. I just want something functional, solid, and will either correct my usage of the dot, or be designed to be used that way.
