Default SAR 3 Rifle and Glock 23 First Real Day of Fall 2010

My bro. and I took went to the range on what seemed to be the first real day of autumn in the Southeast. Finally, some range time where we were shooting and not sweating bullets.

We took some of the Tula .223 62 grain HP ammo out and sighted in my AR, which didn't like the stuff at all. I had several stuck casings after about 30 rounds.

My SAR 3 loved it though. I am tempted to try some of the Wolf 55 gr. ammo in my AR to compare it to the Tula. I don't remember if Wolf is made at the Tula factory or Uly.

Oh, I thought that I through in some mock tactical action for laughs. No offense to those who are serious about that stuff.

Thanks! Glad you like'em! I really like AK's in 5.56x45. They're a ton of fun to shoot.

They aren't all like that, don't be mistaken.

ARNOOB,

Thanks for the great videos! That looks like what I might do this weekend. What magazines are you running the SAR-3 with? Does that SAR-3 function as flawlessly as the standard AK?

I'm looking for another AK, and I'm really seriously considering one in 5.56x45.

I'm glad that you guys like the videos. I sure have fun making them! My SAR 3 has been really nice. I usually run Bulgarian "Circle 10" 30 round mags. I modified the back of the feed lips on these mags by filing them down very slightly. This was easy to do and they run 100%.

I also just use 30 round AK-74 mags, but only load 20 rounds. They work great as well. I haven't had any issues with my SAR 3. I just ordered a Red Star arms fire control group to replace the one that came with it.

This AK is chambered in 5.56x45, so there's almost no felt recoil. I love this setup.
