I was gifted a pelican case for Christmas. Just got it set up for the 6.8.
Aero Precision EPC 9 pistol with the 11" barrel. Bought the upper and lower complete, the sling, mounts, light and sights are bits that I had laying around. I have a Vortex Sparc, but it's being used on another gun and may look at something smaller from Holosun.
About 150 rounds of both ball and HP through for break-in, probably needs another 150. There were a few failure to feeds, otherwise a good shooter.
Standard 16" Colt for comparison
Couple of new pics, outfitted for it's home defense role. The optic is a Vortex Sparc Solar. Runs on daylight outside, switches to the battery inside or in low light. The gun light is an Olight Odin Mini that I just got today in trade. Bigger bodied and longer than I thought it would be, but 1250 lumens, rechargeable and essentially free.
Being that the gun is a direct blow back and has a feed cone and no actual feed ramps, finding JHP ammo that runs reliably has been challenging. I found that it doesn't like longer 147 gr rounds, but does well with 124 +P's from Winchester.
Can’t decide on optic. @stickman what would you recommend for a factory Daniel Defense M4A1 upper?
I am not the Stickman, but what is your intended use for it? Personally I would go with a LPVO like a 1-4 or 1-6, but I can step out my door and shoot out to 300 yards. That is where the magnification helps out, but dial it down and I have my red dot for up close. The LPVO really are game changers now.
I have a Leupold VX-R Patrol 1-4 that is really nice and I'll keep it on one of my rifles, but I want to try out the Vortex PST Viper 1-6. I have seen claims that it is 90% the optic as the Razor HD is, but at half the cost.
I have a vortex strike eagle on my 6.8 spc, it’s a decent budget optic. I checked out the pst viper just after I got the strike eagle. The glass is superior on the viper. I believe it is the ticket
I guess it all depends on your intended use @Boker55 . My 6.8 is for hunting and target shooting.
6.8 gets it done
I really like the AP. Keep us posted on your thoughts.
My stamp arrived by mail on Thursday. I had this SBR assembled by lunchtime on Friday. Me and my partner in crime spent all day shooting on Saturday. He's cutting loose on a string of soda cans and had it down by the second tanker mag. I'm gonna have a problem getting him to plink with anything rimfire now.
The 6.8 is my go to hunting rig these days. I took my Swiss k31 but it stayed in the case.
Great picture and very nice to see a new fan of the sport.
Thanks brother! Hope you're having a happy & safe Thanksgiving.
Thanks, hope you are having a great Thanksgiving but here in Canada we did that Oct 11. Have to get a jump on turkeys before you guys eat them all.
.300 BO pistol on ESEE lower
what brand shot shell card on the 870? Does it hold shells securely? I’m thinking of some for my HD gun.
