    Nice grab!...now all you need is 40 or 50 30 round P-Mags , a couple of 100 round Beta-Mags , and a flexible flyer wagon to tote it all around and you'll be all set for the Pockylips...

    Do they make those flexy flyers with picatinny rails?

    I don't think so..but could probably be modified to accommodate...

    Godzilla laughs, your new rifle will have no effect on him.

    Didn't stop them from trying in the latest film.

    They also tried M4's on the evil Kryptonians in Man of Steel - - AFTER the depleted uranium 30mm's from strafing A-10 Thunderbolts failed to do the job.

    I always thought AR-15's were just something to keep around to use as women's/kid's rifles. Maybe Hollywood knows something we don't.:drool:

    Finally got to the range today. I'm a happy camper! 100 rounds without a hiccup. Rifle is accurate and consistent. I used American Eagle 55 gr. and a few cheap Chinese ammo as well. I'm a happy camper! First time I've ever shot with an AR. Also first time I've used an aperture sight. Wow, they are great. Even though they are round and not slanted to fit my eye. Target acquisition is so quick. I'm a happy camper! Controls fall right in hand and are easy to use as well.

    What's the heaviest bullet I can use? After all, that big lizard is back once more. Uranium depleted rounds?

    Did I mention I'm a happy camper???

    Congrats!! I'm going to have to get an upper eventually for the lower I have.

    What's the twist on the barrel? That's going to determine how heavy a chunk of lead you can throw accurately.

    I THINK S&W uses 8 or 9 twist.
    8 will handle pretty much anything you'll find in factory ammo
    Some say a 1:9 won't handle 75/77gr bullets but none of my 1:9 barrels have had any trouble with that weight

    If you look, it MIGHT be stamped on the barrel either near the chamber, under the hand guards, or in front of the gas block.


    And res, you did mention you're a happy camper :beer: Did I mention :yousuck: :tooth:

    1 in 9 twist rate. But the shooter hisself can't twist, tango, foxtrot, waltz, breakdance, line dance or samba. I can only do the Curly Shuffle.

    :yousuck: Nice looking rifle though. Sounds like it's a good shooter to boot. :up: Are you going to mount a scope on it a some point?

    You got yourself a nice rifle! It should stabilize up to 68-72 grain bullets with that twist rate. Maybe a little heavier. Just have to try them. Which means more range time. Range time is a good thing.

    These old squinty eyes definitely require a scope.
