ARES / Fightlite SCR

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with these?  The price on the lowers is a little steep, but I kinda like them aesthetically.   Without being able to try one out though I was wondering if the ergonomics felt right or if it was just awkward in practice.

Came across this modified one a while back (I think it was on ARFCOM).  I don't remember who the person was, but it sure came out awesome!

I have a Gen 5 Shrike by Ares (it's been a problem since day 1), I've seen those on their website it has a bizarre bolt that retracts into the stock at a angle.

I've got an SCR I picked up when I lived in a restricted state. The bolt carrier is modified with a tail added as their recoil system is modeled on a Mossberg style autoloade, where the spring compresses into the stock. As such its stone stock reliable like a mossy 930. Which is why you see the pics like that one where someone has reworded a shotgun stock to fit.

The ergos I think are very good. More compact. The stock allows you to have low mount sights and optics over the standard AR high mount or riser requirements.

The triggers are proprietary, which means you are kinda stuck with what you got. No dropping in your Geisele fancy pants bit of kit. 

I've had quite a few rounds thru 4 uppers and never an issue on feeding and reliably. Their proprietary carrier has accepted whatever mil spec bolt I've run in it.

The only niggling detail is the machining on the portion of the receiver where it would line up with a mil spec upper can be wonky unless they have cleaned that up. They look offset a bit or just dont quite line up. Its a cosmetic deal, bothers some folks, but does not effect functionality.

      Got a friend who's brother bought a Sota Arms AR-15 at a gun show. I have never heard of them. From what reviews I've read about them, they seem kinda of hit or miss in the quality department. Anyone here ever heard of them or has one? Are they any good? Thanks.

      I am new to shotguns and just received mine, but I am uncertain which ammo I need for home self defense.
      I was trying to get through the jungle of different ammunition, but it is impossible.
      Can someone please tell me which I need? 
      Maybe brand , # Shot, oz, FPS.
      Thank you very much.

      Anyone here tried one yet?
      I have an 18" 6.5mm that may very well get converted if the new Hornady cartridge proves out.
