    NX8 1-8 vs Gen3 Rzr 1-10

    I have a Gen 3 1-10 and it’s a decent scope, but the reticle leaves me cold. I much prefer the reticle in the NX8 (I’m an MOA shooter) as well as the weight but I have some concerns about getting behind the scope in odd positions. May be a moot point as I will most likely run a mini red dot as...

    UPDATE-mount question post#10 Old setup, but still works great

    For those as old as me, this setup was the shit at one point. Though this is an RMR instead of a Docter or Jpoint, it’s instantly familiar. I was not SF and out pre-GWOT so I never carried this setup but in my semi-public quest to find what is ideal for me for a lightweight handy rifle, I ran...

    Camo tape - adhesive - for covering scopes

    I’m going to paint a couple rifles but I’m not set on the scopes I’m currently using staying on these. That said, I’m not getting a warm a fuzzy about painting the scopes. I’m looking for some first hand experience on Camo tape that you’ve used. Brand? Who’d you order from? (Seems most of this...

    Take me to bridge school

    Ok, super noob question from a guy who hasn’t worn NODs since ‘97. Is there a resource, here or on Al Gores second greatest creation, that lists each of the dual bridges with weights, options, etc? Assumption is initial use will be PVS-14s, bump cap, possible external power if it’s an...

    Nostalgia has me longing for an MP5 or Clone . Is this another Sig210 moment?

    So over the last couple of years I have had the pleasure of shooting some decent PPCs. The B&Ts being right up there, however I have always liked the looks and maybe buy into the legends of the MP5. With the semi-recent release of the SP5 and the SP5K I am coming back around to looking at...

    Modifying a Safariland Mid ride, anyone done it?

    I have changed belts recently, from a T Rex Orion padded unit to a Raptor Tactical and I’m finding that the way the Mid ride sits on the Raptor, the tip of the mid ride is now pressing hard into my quad. Has anyone tried heating one of these up and adjusted the angle a little bit? Is there an...

    ACRO on an ACOG?

    Two part question: Background. I have a couple RMRs, nice units with not much use at this point. I am about to buy another ACOG (TA01 NSN most likely) and I have been fairly well set on mounting one of the RMRs up top but with all the rain and shit we’ve had lately I am wondering if going...

    7.62 RC2 mini vs RC2 vs 300SPS

    I think I’m going to buy another can this week and I have been eyeing a the 7.62 RC2 mini. I have access to one, and will likely try it this week on my URG-I but after shooting a 300SPS I’m wondering if the 300SPS or the Standard RC2 might be a better choices. For the cost of a little length...

    Silly Trust Question

    I’m kicking around buying a Surefire SOCOM 7.62 for a couple rifles and most of my stuff is in a trust with my wife and daughter. She was married last year and moved to Tacoma, so I rarely see her. Question for the masses, which is “easier”, going single shot trust and adding them after to a...

    Another Boots thread - supportive boots that drain water

    I am a long time Asolo fan. Worn out three pairs over the last six year and am working through killing pair # four now. The Fugitives are hands down my favorite BUT I did an even this weekend that has convinced me I need more than one option. A buddy and I did the 9/11 Legion 10k and 500 yards...

    Another silly ACOG question

    Edit: changed the topic on the #7 post and the title so as not to clog up the forum. My googlefu is failing me. I’m trying to find the MOA measurements on some of the ACOG reticles. Specifically the TA01NSN 5.56 and the 7.62 reticle. Also the TA01D. Need to see how these compare to my...

    1-6, 1-8 or 1-10 LPVO with MOA grid reticle?

    I need to scope a URG-I~ish build I’ll have wrapped up next week. I have been looking at LPVOs for this build as there will be some PID requirements and small-ish shots to 300 yards. I run 77SMKs in everything I own, and could be persuaded to run 69SMKs if needed, but I like commonality...

    Eagle Yote pack - who’s used one with a PC

    Anyone use an Eagle Yote in tandem with your Plate carrier? If so, general impressions and advice on how it fit and rode is appreciated. With it without the PC. Did it secure the load well? How did it hold up, etc? I run mostly civilian packs now but I figure once I put a on the fucking PC...

    Crye G3 fit vs OCPs?

    Kicking around the idea is using a pair of Crye G3’s with the knee inserts for a match I have coming up in September. I really like the way the OCPs fit and move with me, they hike well and the overall construction is decent but they could use some work in the lower pocket stitching dept, etc...

    Badger BAD-306-33 high enough for RMR on 32mm NXS?

    Anyone know if the Badger BAD-306-33 is high enough to use an RMR or Delta point on the front of a NXS 24 or 32mm and clear the front housing on the 32mm? Truth be told I like the 24mm but I think I’m going back to the 32. It’s a better scope and the NP-R2 will be easier in this comp than the...

    Back in the 30-06 club

    I haven’t had a 30-06 in some time and I have been longing for an ‘03 or a M1. By buddy, who is also my builder, brought this one back from being sportster-ized. Barrel is Critereon and the stock is Minnelli, but for me it’s perfect. Currently wearing a 15x Lyman Super Target Sport but once I...

    Baffles for JR Machine cleaning kits

    I’m considering trying one of the JR Machine cleaning kits to form 1 for a large frame project and They don’t have an FAQ section for the non-included parts. Has anyone used one of these kits (Ops12 or otherwise) and if so can you recommend a good place to purchase baffles?

    Sidearms & Scatterguns M17 holster with light?

    I have been playing with my kit a little lately, and yesterday decided I wanted to try a full sized pistol on my pistol belt. I have been running a G19 w/o light on it for awhile now and though I like it feel the need for a full size. Plan was to push the easy button and find a Gen4 G17 or a...

    Barrett Rec10 Barrel Extensions?

    Does anyone know if Barrett is using a standard spec large frame barrel extension like the Bat unit, or are they running some proprietary unit like LMT, etc.? Handled a Rec10 the other day and it's a pretty nice piece. That said, I'd want to play with an 18, 20 and 22" barrel as well. We...

    Western CO and Southern Utah, Are the parks open?

    My wife and I are supposed to be leaving to CO next week to hike some in western CO, Arches and Canyonland national parks in Utah. I'm getting conflicting reports on if the parks are actually open and accessible. Anyone from around Grand Junction know if the trails and national parks are open...
