Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
99.99% Completed work on the new AR-10. The only thing missing still is the crush washer, but thats a teeny piece. An awesome Droog has throw a few in the mail and should be here before Blogshoot. Borepatch is hosting another shewt’em up down at the Manatee Gun club here in Floreee-duh! and Sapper n’Me are making the effort. It’s $20 a head to shoot from 11am til 16:00. And to Droog ‘X,’ me huuuugest thanks for the washer(s)! Friggin’ Palmetto State was the only place with them in stock at non-extortionist rates, but their shipping department for non-ffl stuff blows goat chunks.
And for the Droog who suggested re-using the old crush washer, it might have worked, but when I crushed this particular one, I had to cut it off to avoid fucking up the threads on the crown… it didn’t want to ‘play nice’ coming off, and rather than thread it off, I hadda snip it.
Came out nice I think…
Dude who started me on this project, if’n yer reading this call me
Or mebbe not LOL.
Fookin’ Pretty there Aye?
Hopefully it shoots as nice as it looks
Tis a heavy motherfooker tho…Like OMFG Heavy. Between just the fact that a 10 is a much more burly rifle due to the inherent nature of the 7.62 versus the 5.56… this thing is a beast.
The scope added almost 4 pounds to it and a battle-royale with Wifey, as it was around 3 bills over the authorized budget.
So, I get to eat beans n rice for a few weeks.
It’s worth it if it shoots nice
.What’s funny is she’d positively shit if I bought a really good optic like a Leupold…. them suckers run a couple o’grand there. This ‘un here was pretty highly rated as far as good, inexpensive chineseium goes. We’ll see on Saturday.
So, More Later I Remain The Intrepid Reporter
