Re: Lead barrel: Stormlake or Lone Wolf?

If you can get a KKM barrel, i highly recommend it. well worth the money. I have got about 5K rds in my glock19 since march of this year and have had no issues at all. ive shot a few hundred rds of lead through it as well and it doesnt build up very fast at all. I immediately noticed the difference ...

Re: ACOG Advice

Doc- I don't dislike the ACOG in the least. I was using it as an example of a lesson learned. I was asked to take an odd shot at longer than normal range and then I ended the day with clearing buildings. I may or may not have been good at the long range, but I would have been screwed inside a room. ...

Re: ACOG Advice

I don't think anyone was suggesting an ACOG was BEST for home defense, as stated, they serve best on general purpose weapons. They're a jack of all trades optic. Undead- I didnt say ACOG was best served on general purpose weapons. I used the "home defense" scenario because the marksmanship required...

Re: ACOG Advice

Why, in your opinion, would a red dot be redundant with an ACOG that has the fiber optics? I thought that only helped to light it up better...? Akin- The fiber optic does make the reticle brighter or dimmer with the changing lighting conditions. The downside to this is that the reticle is TOO brigh...

Re: ACOG Advice

Hopefully, that's accurate, as I'm seriously leaning towards the Comp M4... You wont be disappointed. I have used Aimpoint M2\3\4's, EOTech 552, XPS and the ACOG TA31 extensively for ten years, 4 of them overseas and if you were to ask me which optic gets a "B" across the board I would tell you eit...

Re: What AR stock are you running and why?

Interesting responses.
has anyone given any thought into why a certain buttstock may be better or worse than another in terms of performance?

Re: ACOG Advice

45 degree offsets have been in use for awhile now by 3 gun competitiors and I have known a few guys to use 45 degree offset doctor red dots on there long guns. no idea on how durable it is overseas but the concept is sound. ive shot an offset T-1 mounted on a friends Larue predator and it was pretty...

What AR stock are you running and why?

I have noticed a reoccurring trend that pretty much everyone I run into is running some form of a magpul stock. I was wondering what stock your running and your reasons why? I have two rifles in the following configurations. 1. 16in barrel. Troy 13in alpha rail. EOTech XPS. Magpul CTR with extended ...

Re: ACOG Advice

I sold my ACOG awhile ago and hindsight always being 20/20, i really wish I wouldnt have just because its another tool in the toolbox. The ACOG is a great optic but by design it is a special purpose optic. I would look closely at the purpose(s) you plan on using your rifle for. Some of the downsides...

Re: Realistic Ammo Stockpile Per Gun?

when you start talking about stockpiling you have to remember that the more shit you have the more people are going to want it. Be it food, ammo, shelter, you get the point. With that being said, wouldnt you rather transform that giant pile of ammo into skill? i get sad when i am collecting ammo lik...

Re: What's the most effective portable firearm?

All I can tell you about my POF is that I have put 10k rounds through it and I have never had to tap the forward assist once. Far cry from my M4. The problem that a lot of guys have when they are talking about there work gun in the military is that they dont take into account the history that parti...

Re: What's the most effective portable firearm?

I think the basis of the question is completely valid. The standard direct impingement AR platform is too bulky with the buffer assembly which is sooooo 1963... MP5 or even a semi auto SP89 starts at around $7K-$15K. I think your best affordable bet would be something like this PDS by Rock River Ar...

Re: What's the most effective portable firearm?

In my opinion a slick, 10.5in AR with collapsable iron sights and a mini scout light mounted at the 2,5,7 or 10 oclock postition is problably the best option overall. mainly becuase you have a reliable system that is a slim and lightweight as possible. I agree with some of the above statements about...

Just out of curiousity, what are your reasons behind putting the RMR on a G34 versus a G17 or a G19?
