  • Building new rifle..........

    for ME!

    It started out a standard AR-10 type I am talking about in the main battle rifles section, but after finding out I have a 5R target barrel, it is wind up something MUCH different!

    FINALLY got to take it out to play with it. With purely iron sights and surplus West German ammo and shooting from both shoulders, it kept the rounds bouncing a 4 inch reactive cube hopping at 300 yards.

    I got the rings for it last week. Tested all 30 mags for it today. They all worked great.

    Young guy next to me was REALLY frustrated. Brand new factory 'super gun' with Vortex scope, a can, and bubble level, et al..........He had a new Savage also that was set up similarly but with a better scope and can. Same results.

    Best he could do was three inches at 100 yards. He watched me bouncing the cube at three hundred with iron sight and from both shoulders. He asked me 'HOW'. I told him it was simple, Marine instructors and about 100,000+ rounds over 50 years! Get about half way there and maybe he could call himself a rifleman.

    My old operations Sgt was also there doing it with a M-4 he built and doing the same thing with the cube at 300. Guy asked him 'how'. My operations Sgt said it was simple as he was 'infantry' and had a dammed old demanding Battalion Commander and then pointed at me.

    I told him then to sell one of the guns and take the money and buy AMMO and seriously shoot with it until he could do as good as I was with iron sights.
