Sayeret, I could have sworn they kicked out some sort of order banning the use of tape on grenades, due to safety concerns. If nothing else I do remember a a sh*t load of commercials running on AFN, telling people not to do it.
Its RSOP to tape a grenade. Its wrapped around the pin itself and then wrapped around the upper part of the grenade. Prevents the pin from accidently being pulled out and after you unwrap the tape, you just need to yank on it to remove the pin.
I got a magwell rubber grip thing made by "Never Quit." I normally shoot with a vert grip up front, but got one to try it out. Felt a little awkward at first, but once I got a hold of it, it's quite ergonomic if gripping at the magwell. Not really necessary, but it's a nice addition.
I like that magwell grip. It looks like a great idea. I think i will get one as well (if I could find one up here).
Finally got out to shoot the Robarms XCR. Overall I was very happy with it. I didn't have it boresighted in for sh*t, and I was about 2' (feet) right on my first mag.
Robarms suggests a break-in period with the gas setting at maximum, so it did kick pretty darn hard. I'll see how the recoil behaves once I get the break-in finished and drop the gas setting down.
The C Products magazines did give me some trouble (and they are the only company to step up to the plate to make AR 7.62x39 mags). The mag springs are just too weak, so I'm ordering some AK mag springs to stiffen them up a good bit.
For those who have their support on the magwell, the grip's made out of rubber, so your hands won't slip off. Likewise, it provides a wider grip, giving you a more positive hold (if that makes sense) while still being relatively low profile. It'll make more sense if you shoot with it.
Thanks! It's only useful if you grip your rifle there. If not, it's probably not really worth the cost.
After seeing pictures of Nagants, might as well post this.
My friend was shooting his nagant the other day while trying out different manufactures of ammo. I can't remember which one, but I think the Hungarian or Bulgarian ammo was causing the action to get stuck when he tried to cycle it.
So, I took my new ACOG to the range on Saturday. Put about 100 rounds through it. Long story short, I didn't like it. Eye relief was too short for my liking, I don't like the tiny ocular lense, which to me is too slow to pick up on a snap shot, and the red dot forced me to break cheek weld to use. All in all, it just didn't work for me.
I talked to SMG Lee on here, and on his recommendation, traded in the ACOG for an Elcan Spectre DR. Haven't shot it yet, but it seems to fix all the problems I noted with the ACOG; generous eye relief, large ocular lense, and the switch from 1x to 4x is pretty sweet. I'll try and get som photos in the next few days, and a range report after this weekend. My fiancee wants me to go to the wedding rather than the range.... psssh.
