Default My new AR build

Been slacking on getting out a range report so here it is, took the ar out to sight it in two weeks ago. She runs and shoots like a dream!

Here's the first 60rds i put through it, it was not sighted in, just a quick function test


And here is my sight in targets

The upper right target was used to zero it in, she was shooting a lil low and right. The middle target as well as the other outer targets were shot from standing position after being zeroed in, as you can see i need some work haha. All were shot with American Eagle 5.56x45 55 grainers. Forgot to take a picture but took 5 shots at a silhouette target at 300 yds, 4 out of 5 shots were hits although the grouping was nothing to shake a stick at haha. With more practice i'm positive it will be a very accurate rifle so i'm very happy with the build.

As of today i have 600 rounds through it with ZERO malfunctions

Here she is "Tanica Blacktrick" haha

To some, you have just done the impossible or just got really lucky. Did you have to use that gunsmith on speed dial at all? (snickers)

Nicely done man!

RIGHT!!! lol

Nice job Zombiekiller! Now, don't you feel much more accomplished than you would if you had just bought an AR?

BTW, those are well within man-sized groups and should slay any zombie hordes nicely.

Congratulations and kudos. And nobody lost an eye.
