    I like those angled grips...put one of those on my AR-10, and a similar style on the 15.

    I wasn’t sure if I’d like it but I think I’m going to

    I moved my traditional scope back toward the rear where the charging handle is and also mounted my red dot scope in infront of the rifle scope for better accuracy. Probably not ideal but I'm just trying out a different rig. I can still see my field of view perfectly fine but again the red dot is more for just helping me sight in my rifle scope.

    I also just ordered a Strike Industries Charging Handle Extended Latch from Wing Tactical in Black for $12 and so I'm excited for that to come in.


    And found out my carry gun light is almost dead, I've got a spare battery for it but I just decided to just remove the light from my pistol and carry without it. If you carry a pistol light in cold weather or any light for that matter, the cold actually drains your battery faster. So I don't need it on the gun at the moment and so I went ahead and just took it off for now.

    Test-fired my 3rd AR build. Stainless fluted 16" Wylde barrel, Timney trigger, ambi charging handle, ported flashhider, 6-position stock, etc. Having trouble with dust cover staying closed (?). No sights nor scope yet. That 16" barrel is REALLY loud. I did the lower, son did the upper.

    That’s what I’m doing, too boring with just 1 optic and a bipod. Needs another optic and a charging handle upgrade! :p

    I was gonna buy the extended charging handle latch in blue, but my whole AR and even my Glock are all black. So it would stick out like a sore thumb. So I just got it in black because you know it’s TACTICAL. :cool::p

    I just finished coming from outside and lining up my red dot with my traditional crosshairs on my AR. Now, I’ll wait for my latch. Hopefully I’ll get it in just a few days. Install it and test it out for a bit, and then I can finally see when I can go out and run a few rounds to see where my bullet impact is and adjust my sights from there. :)

    Just finished readjusting the sling from grandaugter hunting length back out to fit over my tac vest.

    It appears we have incoming BLM to the OTHER little town west of me Sunday.
    So church security that morning , protest in the afternoon. :rolleyes:
    Two whole black families in that town , one of them a white /black couple. I really thought we were done with that crap once the instigator moved.
    I guess not. :confused:

    I got another question, so my charging handle extended latch comes with a latch spring and roll pin. Do I have to use those for the new latch? or can I just use the ones that the current latch has on already? and that way all I do is swap out the standard latch with the extended one I’m getting and I’m good to go.


    This way I can just keep the spring and roll pin as spare parts.
