  1. Group at Lower left corner - that was right after we removed the muzzle brake. It changed the POI quite a bit. I adjusted and shot the other 3 groups soon after.
  2. Hello, I took a short break from shooting but now getting into it again. I picked up a Larue Stealth Upper (20 inch) and shot it today. The only factory ammo I had were some 55 grain and factory match loads in 69 grains. I however reload and that was what I primarily shot. My go to load is a little on the light side. 50 or 55 grain pills + 22.3grains of H335. It will do 1.5 MOA and is very easy shooting. It does well in about 3 AR15s I've tested from in 1/9 and 1/7 (A PSA, A Stag and a Troy). After some reading, I loaded up 77 grain Noslers using 23.5 and 24.0 grains of Varget. 2.255 OAL. CCI primers. These were carefully weighed and each loaded. I seem to be getting just a hair above 1 inch at 100 yards (front sandbagged, rear was my left hand and a sandbag). I'm going to start some load development - maybe start at 22.3 and increment up to 24 grains. (i had one pierced primer at 24.0 so it was getting hot). As a note, the gun was shooting about 2 inches and I was getting frustrated until a friend suggested I remove the cheap (maker unknown) muzzle brake...that tightend up the groups to what you see below. Unfortunately we had shot the last of the Federal GMM 69 grainers and most of my reloads by then so the below groups were the last of them... (i didn't wait but more than a few seconds between shots/no cool down period for the barrel). I'm interested in what you all have to say and what types of groups you get from Larue barrels/uppers.
  3. I'm a bit perplexed by this. From what I've been reading, FFL/dealer cannot sell an 18 year old (under 21) a handgun but can a rifle/shotgun. A private party however can sell to said 18 year old. Also, a rifle/shotgun is much more powerful than a handgun. Why is an 18 year old allowed to purchase a rifle/shotgun from a dealer but not a handgun. Why is a non dealer able to sell when a dealer isn't (to an 18 year old). Why the difference?! Second point: at 18, you can join the military and would carry a handgun as part of work. However, when you go home (still under 21), you can't buy the same handgun to protect your own family?! What's the sense in that? This started when I started researching. I have a handgun for sale and and 18 year old offered to purchase it. -- Federal law in this area distinguishes between long guns (rifles and shotguns) and handguns, and between gun possession and gun sales. Federal law also distinguishes between licensed and unlicensed gun sellers. Minimum Age for Gun Sales and Transfers: Under federal law – Handguns Long Guns (Rifles and Shotguns) Licensed firearms dealers Dealers may not sell or deliver a handgun or ammunition for a handgun to any person the dealer has reasonable cause to believe is under age 21.8 Dealers may not sell or deliver a long gun, or ammunition for a long gun, to any person the dealer has reasonable cause to believe is under age 18.9 Unlicensed persons Unlicensed persons may not sell, deliver or otherwise transfer a handgun or handgun ammunition to any person the transferor has reasonable cause to believe is under age 18, with certain exceptions*.10 Unlicensed persons may sell, deliver, or otherwise transfer a long gun or long gun ammunition to a person of any age.
  4. Got it. Handguns are where that extra layer of reporting occurs; for lowers - buying (4) is just like buying (2) or (1)... Trying to understand laws my head hurt.
  5. I'm reading over your reply again Oh Shoot... So, if I buy just (3), it just goes through NICS (National check) but if it's (4), it then goes through TICS (for that extra check on stolen firearms). I think that's a big difference in that our personal data can be kept indifinitely in TICS database. (while it's destroyed at the National level). Am I understanding that correctly?
  6. Thank you everyone for the responses. I have a phobia of black helicoptors so your feedback is much appreciated. Thank you Oh Shoot for the link to the guidelines. From page 26, i learn that the magic number seems to be (3) max and all it requires is another call for a 'stolen gun check'. From what I read, if they use the 'online process', this is not needed. Unless I'm missing something, I should be ok even I purchased say (4) lowers - these lowers would all be new from a vendor and therefore no chance of being stolen.
  7. Thanks guys. Call me paranoid but I just don't want extra attention simply by buying a few extras. I hope someone can chime in - just verify that there isn't an extra form or flag if someone bought 3 or 4 or 5 lowers.
  8. Hello. I've typically only been able to purchase 1 gun every many months/year but I'd like to get a few AR lowers at the same time (while the wife gave me the ok.) - Is there a limit to how many AR lowers one can purchase on a single background check? - Is there a number where 'additional' paperwork is required (I heard about another form that needs to go to the ATF if over x amoung of guns) (or is that only for handguns). - Is there an FFL that charges a 'fixed' FFL fee or is the standard $x per gun + background check. Thanks everyone!
  9.   Hello Verne.  So i'm curious, does the action of the 300BLK differ from the 223/556 version where it needs a bit more "extracting"?   Thank you everyone for your help.  I'll plan to get the upgrade kit but I'm just curious now..
  10. Hello.  I'm getting back into shooting and I ran into issues today.  May I ask for some troubleshooting advice?   Lower is a Radical Arms paired with a Radical Arms 8.5 inch upper in 300BLK.  The lower was purchased as a complete gun with a 10.5 inch upper in 223.  That functions well/reliably.  I am using the same gunfighter charging handle and the stock (what it came with) BCG.  The BCG looks to be of quality with MPI etched on, staked, etc.    I used Remington green box 120 grainers from Walmart and some quite expensive Barnes TSX (also factory).  Magazine is a 20 round Magpul 2nd gen (no issues with other rifles/pistols)   The first 20 rounds seem to be fine; no failures.  After that - issues:  Round would fire.  Extractor will grab the case and attempt to pull it back.  Instead of flinging it out, it drops the spent case right on top of the magazine.  The BCG will push the new round in the magazine into the chamber but the spent casing is still on top of the other round and they both try to enter the Chamber.  It jams it up usually ruining one of the rounds.     I attempted to fire it one round at a time.  It does lock the action back but again, not eject reliably.     Any thoughts on what i can do to troubleshoot?  I did some googling.  Some recommended upgrading the extractor or putting an O ring but this BCG is brand new.  It also ejects the 223 rounds perfectly.          
  11. Here is a review of a hotel where I'll be staying this weekend:   1.0 / 5Poor "Crack house with Hookers on the corner." My kids still have nightmares from that nasty place. Their was blood and hair in the sink and toilet. Genuine Hotels.com guest review     I waited last minute so it's slim pickings and I can't afford $250 a night for a nicer hotel I'm there to attend a photography convention so I'll have some expensive camera gear with me. I'd love to be able to carry my gun to and from the hotel/convention center (it's about half a mile walk or Uber). Does anyone know the carry rules in said convention center? I know the review is tongue in cheek but I just want to be careful.   Does anyone know this area of Georgia and can advise if this place is ok/safe/not safe? I'll be staying here: Castleberry Inn & Suite 186 Northside Dr Sw, Atlanta, GA, 30313   Thanks!  
  12. Hello; thanks for the replies.   I believe it was a combination of a new/needing some break in (my friend who bought another (only in 16 inch) at the same time also experienced some issues his first 40 rounds)).   The lower I had also had a stiffer buffer/spring.  I compared to 2 other ARs and it was definitely stiffer.  I swapped a different lower and it was flawless for the next 50-60 rounds.    I'm only getting about 1.25-1.50 inches at 50 yards using factory 55grain ammo (sandbagged) and really horrible 2 inches at 50 yards using my reloads that usually produce .50 to .75 inches at 50 yards with my other guns.  (sights are on tight) (50-55 grain hornady + 22.5 grains of 844).  I may do more load development but hope the accuracy is on par.
  13. There are only 3 settings.  OFF (turns it into a single shot)  Suppressor and "Normal".  The Adams rep said pretty leave it on Normal.    I think my loads may be super light so I'm upping the charge a bit.  I'll also buy some *gasp* store ammo to test it.  I think I have a box of 556 around somewhere as well.
  14. Hello,   I'd like to tap into TGO's collective experience and know-how here.    So I picked up an Adam's Arms 14.5 Piston Upper (1/7 Twist)  and went to the range today to give it a try.  I had about 100 rounds (I know, I was in a hurry).   Most of them were my reloads (load details below) which, at least for other guns, performed well (accurate (2MOA with iron sights)) and reliable (no failures) (Stag, PSA, S&W and a Troy).    On the AA upper (dropped it in a standard PSA lower), accuracy is about the same 1-1.25 inches (5 shot groups) at 50 yards with iron sights (front benched).   However, I was jamming round after round. Spent round would eject but the next round would have difficulty chambering.  When firing a single round, it would fail to lock on an empty mag.  Spent casing were ejecting at 4-5 oclock.   This went on for about 50-60 rounds.  I also shot some Fiocchi and Wolf ammo (those failed to lock the slide back as well) The last 40 rounds (reloads) were much improved.  It started to lock the magazine at each empty (i would only load 1 at a time to test) and when I would fire strings of 5, no jams.   Questions:     1. Is there normally a break in period for reliability for Piston guns?     2. Maybe I just load too lightly?  Federal or Hornady cases.  50grain amax, 55 grain vmax and 55FMJ and 62 FMJ + 22.3-22.6 grains of WC844 (h335).      3. Does a full auto BCG or piston require hotter loads than DI?     4. Using irons only, should I expect better groups from my guns?  (I know, i probably should get a scope to really test accuracy).     5. Is it your experience that piston guns are less accurate than equivalent DI counterparts?   and I know, I need to try some varget or h335 and I need to get a chrony but it's at least another week until I can get to the range.    Or do I stop worrying about it - 40 rounds without issues is a good sign that I'm good to go and I just need to keep shooting the same.     (if this should go in the reloading section, let me know.  At one point, i'm thinking the upper has an issue so I figure I start here).
  15. After being away from guns for a while (i took up the other shooting hobby (photography)), I returned by going to the convention!  So much good SWAG. =)  I can't wait to go shooting again!  This has really energized me and reminded me why I got into this a few years ago.
