Re: Favorite Slings?

I know this is an older thread but I haven't been on for a while... Savvy Sniper ( savvysniper.com ) makes a very nice sling, worth a look.

Re: Donald Trump JR...This guy is one of us. Shoots, hunts, reloads...CCW

Trump has motivated a lot of democrats to vote for him in the republican primaries, who will then vote against him in the general election in November. I don't know about your state, but here in New Mexico you have to be a registered republican to vote for anyone on the republican ticket in the pri...

Re: Got me a dissipator, handguard options?

I've had no problems of any kind with this rifle. I think the rep that these have came from 20 in barrels being cut down without any consideration of gas port size. When they are done correctly there is no trouble. This rifle is one of the most accurate that I own.

Re: Hold overs on an Eotech.

Yeah, but i'd buy another Eotech over anything else. Can't tell you if your idea would work, I have the 300 blk version on my SBR. I've never tried the Sub/Super thing.

Re: Got me a dissipator, handguard options?

DoubleJ is right, the original "Dissipator" was a 16 in barrel with a rifle length gas system. Arfcom decided it was ok to call a mid gas rifle with fake gas block/front sight at rifle length gas position a "dissipator". It's about the look over there... :roll: This is a Dissipator; http://i249.phot...

Re: Eotech issues refund for all models ever sold

So, let me get this straight... EoTech offers a refund to anyone that ever bought on optic from them. No questions asked. Most of you guys have had no problem with your EoTechs but are sending them back anyway. Now you're bitching because you have to wait on the check and they aren't holding your ha...

Re: 7.5" or 8.5" Upper, Where to Buy?

I'm really happy with my CMMG 8.5 upper. I think they use an 8.2 barrel now.

Re: Got me a dissipator, handguard options?

You're going to worry about having a CAR buttstock but you want to get rid of the handguard? That really doesn't make any sense. Is it really a dissipator (rifle length gas) or just a look alike with a fake gasblock/front sight?
Edit to add in a gentle voice...help me understand.

Re: New Barrel or New Handgaurd? - For my suppressed SBR

Unless I was upgrading significantly in barrel quality (not saying you need to), I'd probably go with the handguard. I'd be asking myself, would I rather replace a complicated, functionally critical part, with very tight tolerances? Or a simple, more stylistic/preference part with very few toleranc...
