    Late to the AR trigger talk party but I personally run the LaRue MBT-2S in all my guns. My mom has a Geissele (G2s i think?) in one of her rifles and the LaRue holds its own against it, if not better, and the LaRue is ONLY $87. If any of you are looking for a trigger for a new build or swapping I definitely recommend the LaRue.

    Check it out:

    LaRue MBT-2S

    I bought their competition kit for the 320x5. It definitely lightened the action as advertised. However I need to contact them as the break is like mush. I installed the kit myself, so that may have something to do with it. I am pretty sure the factory striker needs a little polish to make the break crisper. Really, I have just dragged my feet and not reached out to them to see what they have to say. Parts are all high quality and Bruce has built a great reputation, so I am sure they will either fix it or guide me in the right direction. I may even mail my gun into them. I would expect their 226 trigger jobs to be even better than the 320 with it being da/sa. Greyguns seems to have a lot of praise on the sig forums and from what I can tell be favored over apex..... who is probably their main competitor. Parts all look to be high very quality.

    Once I get the break squared away it will definitely be worth the $130 for the kit. That’s a small amount to pay for a lifetime of benefit. If you like to change/trade in guns it may not make sense. If you plan on keeping it, and it’s not a carry gun, then hells yeah it’s worth it. I would never do any trigger work on a home defense/carry gun, to much legal gray area if ever used in such a role.

    I will try to reach out to Grayguns Mon to see what they say. I needed this motivation.

    Yeah I thought of that after I posted it. I guess I was wondering more of the quality of the kit/components.

    A few years ago I scored a deal on a Ruger Super Blackhawk with 7 1/2" barrel from a co-worker. It was a fun gun, but it was way longer that what I like so I sold it with the intention of replacing it with something more wieldy. I finally sprung for a replacement a few weeks ago and got this 3.75" Super Blackhawk 44mag. Recoil doesn't seem as stout as the longer barrel, but I imagine that is partially due to lower velocities from the abbreviated package. It still tosses one hell of a fireball and is a riot to shoot.

    That is a beautiful revolver and the black grips look good on that stainless frame!

    If the shorter barrel was recoiling less than the longer I suspect that is more to do with different ammo than anything else. I have a similar Ruger in 44 Special and it is nice as well!

    Nice! Congrats! Let us know how it runs!

    BTW - shouldn't be any reason any pmag won't work, unless there's something non-STANAG about the BCM lower? edit - just breezed through a thread on M4C. I'd probably just modify the pmags?

    BCM Recce 14, and a Vortex Razor UH-1 optic is what I have so far.

    Before it's duty ready I intend to purchase the following items:

    - Foregrip (likely BCM short foregrip)
    - Sling (likely an adjustable strap like all my coworkers bought)
    - Streamlight tac light (650 or 1000 lumen)
    - Flip up sights
    - Extra mags (PMAG Gen 2 with the window, perhaps?)

    Needless to say, I want in. Not sure exactly when it will happen yet, but I want to start shopping around for a night optic.

    Considering one of these just to dip my toes. Even if a hog hunt doesn't happen, I've been wanting to go on the offensive with the Coyotes around my house.

    Thoughts?

    I've heard good things about those.

They opened it up on the Gen 3. Also yes get the streamlight. I want the tac light for my 509. I finally sucked it up and bout their big high lumen light for work was tired of my mag light. The batteries last forever and the piggy back charger is nice.
    Good to know on the Pmags, I was just about to buy some..

    I love my streamlight, battery lasts a long time before a recharge is needed, although like most lights it suffers a bit now that we're in the cold season and I end up spending 3-4hrs a night outside.

    Found a thread where people are saying the Gen 3 Pmag isn't compatible with all BCM lowers

    I'm really excited to play around with the UH-1, however I'm nervous that I won't like it as much as the (cheaper) Strike Eagle optic 3 of my coworkers have with the etched reticle and magnification capabilities. I went with the UH-1 because the odds of me taking a 100+ yard shot is pretty slim, and I typically use it for standoffs and clearing warehouses etc.. I could always purchase a magnifier too if needed.

    Nice stick, personally I would get a Blue Force VCAS, owned a few, it's by far my favorite.


    Cold weekend with a decent amount of blowback when suppressed, I had a black face after 200rds. I need to get a Gas Buster or make one with RTV
