Time to start saving pennies. Threaded for silencers from the factory, eh?
The owners of AR15.com are selling a huge stack of firearms to finance the move to Dallas. If I had a spare couple dozen grand, there are some nice rifles I’d pick up. The list is growing as time goes on, so watch carefully.
Factory 223 from at least 2011. Tempted to get a box to play with.
These guys have no idea. I’ll save you the trouble: they put it in a pile and shoot it from way too close.
Back in September, I paid for a Rhino Slider so I could take those cool time lapses where you see something in the foreground move contra the background. As part of the early production run, the teething pains are obvious; I’ll need a couple taps to chase the threads in the rods and legs, as of right now I can’t assemble it completely.
However, after sticking it on a tripod (and regretting not buying the carrying case), I put a ball head on it and the LaRue rail squeezer; it makes for a very smooth rifle support. You can get about 45 degrees of rotation with only minor adjustment of your feet; it’s quite nice to have the rifle move without requiring a new hold. Complete setup will require two more tripods and the complete assembly of the feet, so maybe not in time for Boomershoot. We’ll see.
We would like to thank all of our customers for your support. Currently we have approximately two years of backorders for rifles, upper halves, and lower receivers.
Come to daddy. I should have it in time for Boomershoot… 2015. Oh well.
