Default How I spent my Sunday afternoon

That sucks! On the bright side, it could have been and AR-10 you were wasting boom-boom-pills on.

Well at least you got some function testing out of the way!

LOL! Got one question for ya though, ONE round, was the last in the mag, sounded much lower when it went off. Felt like it was much stronger too, but it was the 5.56 that came with the rest. American Eagle target rounds.

I took the .300 Blackout to the range for its maiden voyage and had a similar experience. I "fabricated" my own ring spacers for the 3x9 optic since the rings I had lying around were to large.

It wasn't even on paper to start. When it finally got on paper it wouldn't stay. Long story short I burnt through a crap ton of ammo to find out the optic was sliding backward w/ each pull of the trigger.

At $15 an hour for range fees (indoor 100yds) and after burning through extremely hard to find custom ammo, I called it a day.

I feel your pain.

It does function great though.

Frustrating, I'm sure. But just another good excuse to go to the range again real soon!

Beautiful gun.
