New Build Complete

Just got the hand guard in today. Many thanks to DiamondHead USA for exchanging the low hand guard for their new high hand guard with no problems or hassle.

.308 built up on an AR platform using AeroPrecision's M-5 Lower and upper, heavy profile barrel, Magpul MOE buttstock, MIAD grip with spare battery insert, Diamondhead USA VRS hand guard and matching T-Brake Muzzle Compensator. I went with my go to KNS trigger pin set and Geissele SSA-E trigger. I just like them. I pulled the Burris scope off of my AR Varmitter. It was too much scope for that caliber anyway. I'm gonna put a bipod on it tomorrow when the adapter for the key-mod comes in.

Gun Pron and Range Report

So a couple of weeks ago I threw a throw away bid on a Glock 36 on Gunbroker. The bid was really low and there was a week to go on the auction so I didn't even remember it after a couple of days.  But to my surprise I won it. Warning, pic heavy, for me anyway.


to be precise.

Picked it up today and went to the range to test it out.  It is a seriously different trigger from the 1911's I'm used to.

I started with the lower left target and proceeded to curse the inventor of the striker fire trigger. But 50 rounds and 5 targets later I got that group on the upper right target.

The next 50 rounds I shot just to make sure I understood the difference in the feel and break of a striker fire trigger. Really, it's just so mushy from what I'm used to in a trigger.  Even compared to some of my revolvers.

And I swear it broke in a different place almost every time. I'm still anticipating the recoil as little as it is. But I'm pretty out of practice with handguns of late. I've been concentrating a bit too much on rifles over the summer.

And this:

will drive as many people as possible crazy.  I know you're cringing right now, Curtis, Daniel, Fudd, FarmDad, well the list goes on and on. :D
