    For now, depending on which range I have access to, I may do the 10 yard zero which would zero it for 50/200 yards:

    At the very least that will get me through the qualifications course on the Thursday, and if I need/want to fine tune it I can.


    Realistically, I can think of maybe 1-2 scenarios in my city where I would ever take a shot in excess of 65-70 yards. I've used our range finder at the local Walmart, and the longest distance you can see is about 109 yards if memory serves. Anything further than that and we're probably calling in the local SWAT boys.

          You definitely wont regret it! I love the one I cobbled together, especially since I shoot AR's suppressed most of the time the rifle setups can get a little bit weighty on the front end.

          What length of barrel are you thinking about?


          This is the zero that I run on my Ar's. I used to do the 50/200 yd but switched after seeing this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jttB1kUXfJE

            Im gonna be doing an 8 inch barrel and i think I’m gonna do it in 300 blk instead since i now have the ability to reload it will be cheaper.

              Not sure if I did this correct, but I would imagine it was..

              I did the 10 yard sight in as described above. From 10 yards I used the lower triangle part of the reticle (per the manual, the triangle is for anything 10 yards or less) , and when aiming at the black circle was getting them inside the grey circle as you would with the center dot on a traditional red dot optic.

              I don't have access to anything further than a 10-15 yard range until tomorrow, so hopefully anything further than 10 yards will be on point with the center dot...

                  ^Just ordered a 8.5 300AAC upper from PSA. Prices are crazy good right now. Time to stock up on any builds before 2020 panic sets in. Should be all in pistol build for sub $300. Also ordering a 80% lower that I would prefer not to serialize. Anything I need to know to be in compliance with sbr laws? It will be a pistol, but just want to make sure I don’t need to register it as such before building.

                    Here if you have a ccw there is no need to register pistols otherwise you need to. However i also know that most people wont know the difference. Found out today you cant put a fore grip on a pistol because that turns it into a sbr unless the overall length is over 26 inches.

                      Yup. Over the specific length and it is then a "firearm". Legal, but no longer applies for many concealed weapons permits.

                      Build a new lower as a pistol, don't use a lower that originated as a rifle. No stock, bare buffer tube (including standard carbine tube without the stock), or a brace. No VFG, AFG is ok.

                        Grea! I knew you could not take a lower from a rifle and make a pistol with it, just wasn’t sure if your not registering a lower through a ffl how that worked. I do have a ccw license, but you do not need to register pistols in FL. I guess I was just curious how you would prove the lower was never used for a rifle if it’s not serialiized..... or any paper trail.

                          Thats the great part of 80% lowers and thats why the gov is trying to get rid of them.

                            The whole rifle origination thing is really only enforceable if the gun was purchased as a complete rifle from a shop.

                            If it is an 80%, or a stripped lower you purchased, have fun. Don't you remember? You originally slapped a short upper on there before you installed the stock and long upper just because you wanted to try out the feel of a pistol.

                              When I bought my stripped lower it was sent to a local FFL. The FFL was about to put it as a rifle. I didn't know they can put on the form if its a rifle/pistol/...

                              So make sure if you have it sent to an FFL that they make sure to note it as a pistol.

                                Just bought a box of the Winchester Victory ammo in .45acp and M2 ball. They are pretty cool for collecting or just displaying. Also, ordered an schuster adjustable gas plug for the garand so I can shoot more modern loads with it. It has quickly become my favorite rifle to shoot.
