Polish Beryl . Archer

Post by Vladimir » Mon Feb 24, 2014 11:45 am

Got my polish archer from center fire systems . I had the parts laying around for getting it closer to the polish beryl wich it's a civilian version of . I seldom buy a factory rifle since I build AKs for a hobby . This ones a winner . Before my scope showed up we took it out and were hitting a 4 inch spinner with 100 percent hits at 100 yards . The claims that it's a 1 MOA shooter is quite possible . I went with a skeletonized mount built by warne .save a little weight . Scope I have is the leatherwood hi lux 1 4x24 . It's sheveron for 5.56x45 and. 7.62x39 . They also have a 5.56 specific model but I chose the original form . It's a solid well built scope with the clearest optics I've seen for the price . Compatible to the highest priced scopes . The rifle is quite heavy all dressed up . The polish fore end is very weighty . The poles actualy went to an aluminum style forend probably for this reason . I prefer this one though . I realy have no plan to use the rails for anything I just like the look of the forward grip and can always switch back to the standard forend . The rifle is parkerized and I will probably at some time finish it with a bake on paint finish like gunkote or alumahyde 2 . It's made for 223 and the 5.45 of course but it prefers the 5.56 ight military round as tests by others has proven . I'm using the federal 5.56 M193 NATO round made by Federal . So far I have been able to get it reasonably from my local Cabelas on sale .

When you say .223 and 5.45 I'm assuming you actually mean 5.56..... .223 and 5.45 aren't evened similarly sized cases.

My Archer loves the 55 and 62 grain stuff. I tried some 75 grain TAP one time, just for shits-&-giggles, and at 50 yards got around a three inch group, three inches to the left of POA.

I have only tried the federal 55 grain . Can get a one inch 5 shot group . Anything heavy doesn't work as well . The poles got their rifle right . Goes to prove that an AK type can be accurate . Shoots better than my AR . Just can't use penetrators wich is OK by me for practical purposes . I can pick up the xm193 at my local Cabelas reasonably .
