Nice to find yet another Virginian on the site, and another AR shooter too! I'm up in Fredericksburg myself, and I've got a Panther AR.

Have a good one!

Thanks for the shout. Virginia seems well represented here. I've discovered this AR disease is expensive (and probably incurable). I now have to find a good outdoor range in the area. My indoor range won't allow anything over 22LR or pistol calibers. I had to drive out in the boonies to test fire the AR.


What kinid of optic is that in your avatar?

Virginia58, I had the same grip issue with my Colt.

I found this online seller to be the best price on the net for the Hogue Model 15000. 13.48$

Fast shipping and a great product! Why wait for the gun show? You won't get it any cheaper there!

Watch that safety detent and spring when changing the grip out! Little buggers can get legs.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Cane - That's a great price and the Hogues have a fine reputation, but I think I need to put my hands on one to try before buy. I have a LEO supply shop here that sells Hogue grips, so I will try to see how it fits my hand first.

At 6'4" 270" and large paws, it needs to be pretty big. With the standard grip I am almost on the second joint of my trigger finger.

The optic on the MSAR in my avatar is also the optic I use on my AR. It's a 200-buck ACOG clone we got in stock at the gun shop I used to work at outside Charlotte. A lot of our clientele was blue-collar farm boys who wanted the Mil-spec look but couldn't afford several hundred bucks for a good optic. It's not illuminated, it's not Trijicon quality, but for an inexpensive optic it actually shoots very well.

Check it out near the top of this page: Kingdom Arms

I'd like eventually to replace it with a REAL honest-to-God ACOG or other good, combat-proven optic but the bills right now won't allow it, especially when I'm trying to build a stockpile of ammo after switching from a .40 pistol to a .45.
