Re: Help choosing a new flashlight for my AR

woodsghost wrote:Ok. So I think the solution is to buy a 600 lumen light for the rifle (which runs off of CR123s) and another AA light (less bright) you can attach if there is a PAW and you run out of CR123s.
Well i'm from Oregon so I dont support the use of logic.

Re: Help choosing a new flashlight for my AR

How so? I have no problems using CR123s as long as I can run AAs too. Lithiums AAs seem to last just as long and have similar output but then again i'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to batteries. I took a carbine lowlight/night fighting class awhile back and there was A cop there who told me...

Maybe, he was one of the assistant instructors and supposedly has a over a decade in SWAT. I got the feeling he was probably closer to A Jim Cirillo type cop then an officer Farva type cop.

Re: Help choosing a new flashlight for my AR

I'm wanting something that runs on two AAs and has an output of at least 500 lumens. Does anyone know of any flashlights like this?

Re: Need a scope and advice for long range hunting and shoot

How about the Primary Arms 4-14x44mm FFP Mil-dot scope? It's about $200 http://www.primaryarms.com/primary-arms-4-14x44mm-riflescope-mil-dot-pa4-14xffp Out of stock for one. The scopes are mid-lower Chinese made so it is kind of hit or miss finding a good one. If it is broke they will take it back ...

Re: The All Purpose AK Thread

How do the Hungarian AKs compare to Wasrs? Im not an AK guy at all and the only AK I have owned was a Saiga(wich I miss dearly). The AK market sure sucks, its too bad the AR15 companies wouldnt do like PSA(only better) and build AKs on the side...I would love A BCM,LMT,DD or SOLGW AK.

Re: Help choosing a new flashlight for my AR

AA weapons lights are tough, I don't think I've seen one that has a momentary-only switch, I think I'll have to settle for a momentary/constant switch and just learn the magic touch. I think the idea is alkaline AA batteries are heavy enough to cause problems under recoil, and you can't trust the p...

Re: Help choosing a new flashlight for my AR

Try Streamlight, JF89. I know they make some AA battery lights, but I'm not sure what those models are called. They are pretty affordable, though. I recall paying a little over 100 bucks for the TLR-1s I have on my G41, but I'm not sure what the other lights cost. I like what I've heard about Strea...

Do you have a budget in mind?
I hav'nt really thought about it but I would "like" to keep it under $300ish. I might go a little higher if its really worth it.

What higher end RDS is on your "goto" rifle?

I am usually all over the place when it comes to optics I really liked Eotechs for awhile but switched to the MRO due to battery life, Now ive been using A micro red dot lately and I think despite the small FOV that I might be getting to where I like it more ,for some reason i'm quite a bit faster w...

Re: New Rifle Hits the Streets - Polytech Type 81SA

Is there any chance that these make it to the U.S.? Given that they're Chinese made guns and there's a long standing ban (I think since 1995 or so) on them, I highly doubt we'll see these rifles in the US anytime soon. Which sucks because Canada gets a lot of cool guns we can't get down here in the...

Re: Anybody here into SPRs or Recce AR15s?

Ballistic wise...with decent ammo, you can reach out past 600 easy. I've seen folks get good hits at 800 meters in the past. The options really open up if you aren't limited to fmj mil type rounds. I think fusion msr 62gr will expand down to 1500 fps? Our of 18" barrel that's somewhere around 600 y...
