Default The beast is ALIVE !!!!!!!

FINALLY got Matilda up and running , she eats anything I feed her and spits it right back out . Brass, steel, HP's in 7.62x39 . Does not matter , she runs it all . Took some medium abrasive paste compound on a dremel mandrel with a felt polishing piece just a tad larger than the chamber and got it cleaned up then stepped down to a fine polish and gave it a mirror finish . WwwaaaahhhhhLLLLAAAAAAAAA its magic . I will get some video friday when I have more range time

For those that dont know this thing would stick steel in the chamber bad enough I had to knock it out with a steel rod and hammer .

Sota arms barrel and bolt, LRB Arms stripped upper , misc other parts , I didnt sight it in or anything like that as it was starting to get dark I put about 35 rds thru it orf various rounds to make sure it would run . Going back to the range on friday . I will get some video. Its for sure got more recoil than the 5.56 but you gotta push that heavier lead to

What kind of accuracy are you getting out of it?

Any chance of getting some slo-mo pron?

The barrels look good , the finish on mine is flawless, my only problem was with the steel getting hung up in the chamber but I believe I had some burrs in there probably due from a dull reamer which happens from any manufacturer so its not a huge concern as its fixed , My only concern with Sota is that they had a bad run of bolts and all of the lugs were getting broken off within 100 rds . I ran 35 or 36 rds thru mine and no issues with any broken lugs so maybe I got a good bolt . Finding mags right now is a B!tch , supposedly next week some dealers are expecting the 30 rd mags to start hitting .

All I did was test fire 35 or 36 rds into the dirt berm , so I dont know on the accuracy , Im taking it out friday afternoon for some range time so I will let ya know. All I can tell you is with that brake its loud and it has some recoil unlike the 5.56 . I will provide some slo mo action for ya also , I plan on taking some video while Im out . See ya Friday evening

They eject about 4 o'clock, I will say this ,they ding the sh!t outta the defector because the edge of the neck hits it and seems to ding the case neck on every round also and this is on steel , Im going to slow it up a little bit with a 4.5 oz buffer on the next outting , may need to step up to tungsten and get in that 5.0+ range
