I'm just a novice, so please keep that in mind when I ask this... I have an AR with a collapsible butt stock and I find it hard as heck to shoot when it's short. The bull pup design looks even more uncomfortable. How do you like shooting it relative to more traditional designs?

Ask anything you want anytime you want Man. We were all novice at one time. I have several ARs and some with collapsible stocks and don't have a problem with them. The AUG actually has a little longer length of pull and the stock is a little more comfortable for the cheek to weld to. Also the AR shown here weighs 7 1/4 lbs on my beef jerky scale. The AUG weighs 9 lbs on the same scale. Also the weight is farther back on the AUG. What takes a little getting used to is the action cycling just under your ear. The AUG feels good to me and its so short its about like having a SBR without the paperwork.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

The Japanese Type A Nambu 1918 is not abad looking pistol. The pistol Ruger used to make his famous .22 Ruger line of auto pistols.

The K-31 Swiss is a very accurate military rifle.

Default SA M1A Scout Squad

Here's my scout squad, soon to be sporterized, being popped off by my son, Mini-Me.

I borrowed the Burris 2x scope and rings from my Ruger MkIII Hunter to see how the scout concept would work out. - It's OK, but for hunting in the mountains I'll need more magnification... 2x just won't cut it.

Click Image to see it Bigger







I have ordered a 5 round magazine, and some stripper clips so I won't have to try and pry the stubby magazine out for reloading. Later a Burris 2-7 scout scope will be mounted, and a walnut stock that I am currently sinking the action into.

It'll be my backup gun on hunts, and of course a fun plinker. With Russian "polyformance" steel-cased rounds it currently shoots into 3" at 100 yards.

Recoil is soft for a .308, it's very nice to shoot and handles well. The muzzle brake does a fine job, but I may remove it and put a thread protector on the barrel for hunting. - Very few hunting guides will tolerate a muzzle-brake, the gun will then be four inches shorter, and there's no need for a flash hider as mule deer and elk hardly ever shoot back.

Well I'm at a point now that most of what I buy are just things I think are unusual things. I have one of the FR8's that is kinda a spanish Mauser and its .7.62 x 51 also. And thanks, now my Daewoo has a name. Frank.
