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?

Thanks. I need an expert with me. It was pretty windy and chilly and my dumbass wore shorts.

Also, I have no clue how this rear sight works.

My accuracy for the SKS isn't very good. How do I improve my accuracy with it and a handgun? I changed my trigger finger location but I know I'm reverting back to using the line on my finger when multi firing.

I did horrible at 100 yards the first mag with 9/20 on a medium sized target. I changed my trigger pull and went 7/12 the next.

Put a 3x3 white target holder with 2-3 5" sticker targets. Place it 25 to 50 yards out, fire 5 shot groups.

Really pay attention to where your front site/rear sight relationship is. Start with the front sight being EXACTLY ruler flat with your back site and centered. Fire a 5 shot group and see where the bullets end up.

Adjust/correct your viewpoint on the front and rear sights and fire another group at a new target. Repeat until you know exactly where the bullets are going to go.

I started with 25 yards until I got a 1" group. At 100 yards I can 4-5" group my Saiga .308 (Iron Sights/ Open Sights). My bullet impact spot at 100 yards is the very tip of the front sight when it is ruler flat with the rear sight.

Good Luck.

BTW, does your SKS have a floating firing pin or a spring pin? The floaters can fire randomly, so be careful!

Glad this got bumped.

One of my friends got a new AR last week and outfitted his with an EOTech sight. Damn him. Now I want one and I'm thisclose to getting it. Hard to justify the expense, though, but that hasn't stopped me with anything else I've added so far.

Who has one? Is it really worth the price?

EOTech's are nice but I have a 4x32 ACOG on my AR. Worth every penny!

Pretty Pictures!!!! Here is a rough illustration of the impact point on my Saiga .308. It should be roughly the same as your SKS.

Couldnt tell you. I have no clue what either of those are. I have read about it though, so I've been taking precautions. Ill buy some targets soon.

Shit, I shouldn't even get the EOTech, let alone something that's twice as expensive!

When you break it down for cleaning, it will either have just the firing pin or there will be a spring surrounding the firing pin.


The spring is there to hold the pin until trigger pull, then return it rearward. With no spring, it has nothing to hold the pin back, thus creating a bad random situation.

Ah, I have to clean it before I shoot it again. So, I'll find out.

The thing about the Eotech is that I can get holographic sight now and then add the magnifier later. About $1,100 all total, but not all at once.

My little toy. Haven't fired it in a while and given the fact it's birthday was 1959, I'm not sure how many more rounds I should put through it.

Will probably be in the market for something new later this year or next year.

Really, you can't go wrong with an EOTech. I would like to get one for my AK.
