Default My newest purchase

As mentioned earlier, in another post, i pulled the trigger on a PSA AR-15 in 5.56.

I picked it up from Sniperco on Fri. Went to the range on saturday and put her thru her paces.

At first i couldnt get it to strip the first round off the mag. (lubrication issue i am sure) when i finally got her to eat, she ran well. Worked on getting the irons sights dialed in at 50 and just feeling her out. Let the youngest have a go as well. Then before we left, i just HAD to "open her up" just once. Did a 30 round mag dump just as fast as my lil finger could work the lever, ran perfect.





With the optics...i need to send the optics back to the factory...reticle is busted





The youngest getting the feel (and LOVING it)

Good deal. Nice looking AR. Sorry to hear about the optic though.

Thanks

as far as the optics issue...bahh, it is what it is....just gonna have to take advantage of the lifetime warranty. Kinda chalking that one up to getting what you pay for...it was a GREAT deal even with busted reticle.

I did get some good film of it in action...but alas, it seems all my electronics are going to hell at once. I cant transfer anything from the camera to the computer. I had to pull the chip and put it in my daughters camera to transfer the pictures.

Just a NcStar Mark III tactical...for the $60 i dropped on it, i aint squealing.

Today we begin the process to find out if the lifetime factory warranty is worth the paper its written on and what kind of turn around time is involved.

If they don't honor the warranty and after you tell them to shove their product up their rear-end go to Primary Arms and get a PA Micro. Solid, the optic and Marshall (owner).

I'd had a couple issues with Primary Arms RDS (micro and m4 clone) and every time I do, Marshall steps up and did it right the first time. (He took good care of me and replaced my unit with a new one with very few questions asked

Save your shekels and get a Trijicon TA31 ACOG.

Pricey as hell, but more than worth every penny.
