Here's my first AR, a .223/5.56 Bushmaster Varminter with 24" Fluted DCM Competition Barrel. It was a tack driver right out of the box. I recently added a new Magpul PRS buttstock with an Accushot Monopod. It's an incredible combo that sets up a perfect three point shooting base...


Image

The PRS is as solid as they come and has easy turn turrets for adjusting the LOP and cheek weld for a customizable fit.

Image

The Accushot is the most amazing shooting tool I've ever used. I have one on each of my target rifles. The range of adjustment is amazing and the ability to make fine adjustments on target is unrivaled. Depress the quick adjust button for macro adjustments or simply twist the monopod around its threads to raise or lower your crosshairs by a fraction of a milimeter. You never have to take your eyes off the target as you fine tune your elevation.

Picked up an FN Ps90 a few years back.

You hear all kinds of debate about the 5.7x28mm caliber ranging from comparisons to a mini .223 to others saying it's nothing more than a glorified .22 mag. I shoot the ss197 rounds and in my experience, it's an incredibly low recoil, speedy little booger that's just as consistent at 100yds as my other .223 ARs. Tons of fun at the range and the 50 round mags mean lots of shootn time without having to reload...


Image


I added the quad-rail forend, vented barrel shroud, folding foregrip, mag coupler, brass catcher, ITAC-TFL2 (120 lumens), and Eotech 512.

Recently picked up an FN SCAR 16s...


Image


This is a truly AMAZING rifle with incredible balance. FN builds great products and the SCAR has to be one of their finest creations. I set-up a co-witness with my Eotech 512 and a Sightmark magnifier on a FTS mount. At distance, my eyes need all the help I can get...

Here's my latest project and work in progress...


Image


Built it up from a stripped Spikes Tactical lower, ST Enhanced LPK, and Magpul CTR. I'm goin with a 16" ST M4 LE carbine upper with a 7" BAR rail. Just a few more weeks to wait until my upper ships. I'll be adding an Eotech EXPS2-0 and a flip-down rear Troy Battlesight. Can't wait to get her finished...

Most of my precision shooting is accomplished with an AR platform. The longest shot I've ever taken was at 200 yards...Range 14 @ Fort Dix, NJ.

My Olympic Arms CAR-97 PCR ( Politically Correct Rifle ) was bought during the Federal Assualt Weapon Ban ( 1994-2004 ), and was noteably absent a bayonet lug and had a pinned M4orgery stock. I have since added a functional 6 position M4 stock from the original manufacturer.

Features

chambered for 5.56 NATO
1:9 twist rate
16" 416 Black Oxide Stainless Steel heavy barrel w/muzzle break
A2 forged upper/lower receiver
Pachmayr grips
(shown w/ red dot sight)

Image

200 yards...using Hornady 5.56 NATO 55gr GMX Superformance (HEAD)
200 yards...using Hornady .223 REM 55gr TAP FPD (CENTER MASS)

Image

Iron sights...bench rested over Caldwell Bag...Winchester Spotting Scope 15-45X60mm

The AR platform is rapidly becoming the number one choice of firearm for todays shooter. With all the different caliber variations being manufactured by just as many companies it has captured the affection of sport shooters, police forces, and military around the world due to its accuracy and modularity.

Let's see yours...

Here are some pics of the AR I built for my Pop...

Image

He's a big fan of grizzly bears, so I had a grizzly paw logo laser etched into the receiver. It came out perfect!

Image

His name is also lasered just below the logo, but I removed it from the photo. I presented it to him earlier in the week and he couldn't stop smiling. It was one of the only times I can remember him being speechless.

Nice lookin rifle Gunner!

I like that cantilever scope mount. I use a similar, if not the same one on my Bushmaster.

Well, if you ever make your way here to the US we'll have to make sure you get that chance. We've got members from coast to coast, so I'm sure we'll have somebody nearby wherever you end up....
