Im sitting here in my recliner with a full on chubby right now. You are one lucky man. How much did she run you?

Well I got it used with maybe 200 or 300 rounds through it, the entire gun was in magnificent condition and came with the urban camo stock. So that being said I paid 1595 for the gun, 200 on the scope, 70 on the rings, 60 on the bipod, 10 on the bipod mount, and 489 or so for the black VLTOR stock. Kind of expensive, but I don't regret it :D

Only paid $22.50 for the magazine too :D and it has a five star rating on MidwayUSA, which is where I bought a large portion of my stuff.

Not bad at all. Really like the scope rings as well.

Pwnacles 06-02-2010 05:28 AM

Yeah. :) They definitely fit the type of gun and the rail system well. They don't interfere in any way with extraction, still has plenty of clearance. I, myself, have put probably 500 rounds through it so far, but not at a range or anything, just at one of the local desert areas. So I can't exactly give an accuracy break down right now. However, I shoot it at about 100-200 yards and it hits what I aim it at. Haha. It's my baby.

Someday maybe I will own one. Have my mini-14 for now. Getting the strikeforce stock for it for Fathers Day then a red dot scope if I'm lucky.

Pwnacles 06-02-2010 05:33 AM

What kind of red dot you going for? I considered the Aimpoint 9000L 4 MOA for this gun but ultimately went for the scope.

doctherock 06-02-2010 05:41 AM

Not sure yet. Have to check around a bit. Probably start with something cheap then work my way up.

Pwnacles 06-02-2010 05:44 AM

Ah, yeah I considered the 9000L when midway had a huge sale on it. It was 100$ off until May 31st. Don't forget though, as I'm sure you know, you get what you pay for. :P

Just looked at a video of a guy using the Hammers 2x42 red dot scope and its about 60 dollars.
