Glad to know you're enjoying it. That's the important thing. Where's our range report?

They have a bad rep but my buddy has one as well and likes it, doesn't have any problems and shoots both steel and brass case through it. Last year he converted his to a piston system, glad its working for you.

Haha didnt even notice you didn't have sights till you said this. Did you shoot paper targets or just fire it. If you shot paper I would like to how you did.

Glad to hear it is working out for you. One thing to keep in mind - if something on your AR doesn't hold/up or meet muster you can always upgrade it to a better component

IMO I would save the money on an eotech or trijicon and just get some irons. Shoot the snot out of it then you will have a better idea of the type of shooting you want to achieve with your AR.

Good luck and enjoy - and don't be shy about letting us know the bad as well as the good ... it's how we learn

How close are you to getting some 'eyeballs' for her so she can see what you're aiming at? Iron or scope?

Hah thanks guys for not chewing me to pieces.. Man to be honest I want a trijicon acog.. I'd rather just save up for one there real bad ass.. Went I went to go shoot just went up
To mountains shooting at squirrels and any game that came across messing around so didn't really pay attention this weekend I'll get some little iron sights or something and try to actually shoot a target and give a detailed review just learned how to take apart the upper and lower... Haha I know I'm a green horn but little by little guys

No race. Trick is to enjoy it and put her through her paces to see what can and can't be done.
