Re: NRA life membership

They have more than proved their worth in the fight. Sure they aren't perfect. Blaming video games was stupid of them, but they got the right result in the last battle. That alone makes me look past any deficiencies. That being said, I also give to GOA, SAF, and other local firearms causes. NRA is n...

Listen, I know you like the gun, but you aren't even playing on the same field here. The Mod70 variant action isn't utilized really at all by LE/MIL.

Re: NRA life membership

I am not sure, but as a life member, at one time I had ability to offer 'gift' life membership to someone for something like 30 cents on the dollar. Not sure if I still have that ability, but I will check, in case anyone is interested. I think this recent fight has proven in my mind the power and im...

Chuck, I shot my buddies today actually. Love the feel of the gun, but I agree on trigger. Untenable and really left me heartbroken. Not the worst I have felt, but dampened my fervor. Uh, you probably shouldn't be posting about shooting people. Especially shooting your friends - that's rude. :p Did...

Don't hold your breath. I'm pretty consumed with work. Hoping I can get at least a UTS review in next month or so though.

Cheap feeling. Have to throw switch to change magazines. Jams all the time, and it isn't easy to remedy when it misfeeds. UTS feeds all mags without throwing switch. Troubleshooting very easy. Worlds better build quality. My uncle has both so I got to fire em together. It wasn't even close. I will d...

Had a chance to really work out an FN SPR A5M with a 20" fluted bbl. I have to say, rifle was set up just like I like it. McMillian A5 stock felt just like my custom guns. FN has done a bit of tuning to the Mod 70 action and bolt they chose. Gun shoots well, groups under 1" consistently with cheap c...

Can't beat GA triggers for ARs. Just can't. I've shot triggers that I like better than G Triggers. As far as reliability in adverse conditions and wear and tear, there are a lot of considerations. I have shot with a lot of different triggers, and as far as utility, durability and price, GA can't be...

Yeah, I can't find mine at all. Looked all last night, and even today. I'm thinking I may have left them up in MT on the last trip. That is when I switched em all to ranger bottom plates.

Depending how used up they are as in spring tension, outer appearance, that isn't a bad price at all.
