Off Season Lets Talk Guns

Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

I'm on my third red dot, my third handguard and my third muzzle device. In the junk drawer are a pistol grip flashlight holder that just got in the way when I shot the rifle at the range (around $150), and a couple of bipods. I replaced my original flash suppressor with a compensator, which is kind of silly for an AR since it barely kicks. Looked cool, but made the rifle twice is loud and blasted out that cat piss/ammonia smell sideways which tended to annoy people around me. Ended up replacing it with a different flash suppressor, and I'd have done well to have left the original on it (total money wasted on that about $100). I bought a cheap Bushnell red dot ($80) when I bought the rifle (entry level rifles won't come with sights or optics), then got a sort of mid-range one (Lucid HD7) that was decent, but not great. In hindsight, I should have bypassed the Lucid and saved my money for the totally badass (but very expensive) Trijicon ACOG that I have now. Between the Lucid sight, a magnifier and the mount for the magnifier, I dropped around $350 and it's all in the junk drawer now. I got a nickel boron bolt carrier group that was another big waste of money (around $125) - I reverted to the original one that came with the rifle).

Anyway, after all that, I now have the following additions to my rifle. Some of them are unnecessary, some are more functional and useful than others, but none of them hurt anything.

Sampson Evolution free-float handguard (free floats do not contact the barrel at all and improve accuracy)
Magpul ACS stock which is more comfortable for shooting
Grip Pod combination grip/bipod (sturdy, reliable, used extensively by combat troops)
Trijicon ACOG 4x32 battle scope (again, sturdly, reliable, troop favorite, doesn't need batteries)
Vortex flash hider
Magpul BAD (battery assist device) lever
Magpul trigger guard
Giessele SG3 trigger (excellent trigger upgrade)
Single point sling with mount
Mako pistol grip
Magpul 20 and 30 round magazines

For starting out, I highly recommend Magpul magazines. They seem to be pretty much everybody's favorite. No need to **** with the flash hider. Don't scrimp on optics - I'd get nothing less than an EOTech to start, but they are pricey. Free float rail probably isn't necessary, but you should at least replace the standard handguard with a quad rail so you can mount a grip/bipod. I love the ACS stock, but again, it's not that big of a deal. Leave the bolt carrier group alone. Trigger upgrade was a pain in the ass, but I love love love the new trigger.

Buying the rifle is only half the fun - slowly accessorizing it is a blast, but be smart about it less you end up with a ton of crap you'll wish you'd never bought. In the end, I initially paid around $700 for the rifle. As it sits right now, it's got about $2,000 worth of upgrades on it, purchased over the course of a couple of years, with probably $600 worth of crap that I'll end up selling on eBay if I ever get around to it.
Damn great post. Thanks for the advise.

Acog are very nice optics, however for someone just getting started they should consider starting with irons and upgrade after learning the basics.

Magpul makes good accessories, and a good price for them as well.

BTW, this is the difference between Lucid and Trijicon. You get what you pay for.

That target with the different colors for each ring is a good idea, never seen those before.

My buddy picked up a whole bunch of them - don't remember where, though. They're excellent targets.

Actually, the website's on the target itself. Duh.

www.glowshottargets.com

Can be ordered through Amazon.

I've got a bunch of them through Amazon. They've been on the top picks list on slickguns for at least a year now.

I really like them.

Anybody watch The Pigman on the Sportsman channel? It's one of my very favorite shows in the world...

The Pigman is a badass hunting show...

Quote:
Series Description
The Series is the story of Brian “Pigman” Quaca, a true-blue original and a character at the core, given to a rough and tough hunting lifestyle aimed at entertaining the masses with his different take on traditional hunting television. Willing to take a hog by any legal means necessary and at all costs, the endeavors and travels undertaken by Pig Man send him all across the world with a determined sense to change the way people look at outdoor film.
Viewers shouldn’t be confused though; Although Pig Man’s relentless approach to killing hogs is how he earned his name, it is a simple misnomer that Hogs and Javelinas are the only animals this man is willing to take down. From Whitetails in Kansas to Turkeys in New Jersey to Red Stag in New Zealand, Pig Man is a versatile hunter when it comes to accepting a challenge and Pig Man: The Series is an excellent representation of that very point.
Anyway, this week he had Ted Nugent on the show, and they took their AR-15s, along with other awesome guns, semi and full auto, and went up in a helicopter to hunt wild hogs. It was pretty much the coolest thing ever. Here's a sample:



Seriously, you guys have to watch this. He hunts pretty much everything. You can find all the videos below. Unfortunately, the Aporkalypse Now video with Ted Nugent isn't on there yet, but it should be soon.
