Slowly adding bits and pieces - added pistol grip today - thought I'd post some pics.
Well, thats certainly interesting. Got any more plans for it? What exactly are you going to be using it for?
what the fuck is it resting on in the first pic? a poorly photo shopped block?
Range shooting from 25y out to 600yards mostly and general plinking in the bush.
I'm going to ditch the red dot scope for a Nikon Monarch 3-12x42 say for anything over 100yards (it dosn't have irons unfortunately) then for close in stuff either thinking of a beamshot laser on a figure 8 mount coming off the top of the Nikon (for short range stuff) or a side bracket coming off the main picatinny with a trijicon reflex sight. Not sure yet what would be better.
I think its a music box that was lying around the house that I very poorly photshopped out.
Thats another thing I will add - a bipod (but might be way too awkward with the pump.)
So why not a bolt action if you want to use a bipod and scope to shoot out to 600 yds?
hows the accuracy on that thing?
to be honest its shocking with the red dot - but its a cheap Chinese piece of junk which is why I'm investing in the Nikon which I think will give me decent groups. My mate has same carbine with a Super Sniper scope and is getting pretty good groupings. Barrel is free floating.
Next purchase will probably be a Remington 700 bolt action in .308 so I can shoot out to 1000yards. Throw the Nikon on that and go back to a decent red dot on the .223.
Just want to try something different for now - fucking everyone in Aus has a bolt action....
Are lever actions legal over there?
yeah can have lever, bolt or pump. But no semi's
The goal for my collection is a .22LR lever, this pump in .223 then the .308 bolt.
have you considered moving to another country?
lol I get very jealous reading WMD...
Actually heres a pic of the laser sight I was talking about on a figure 8 mount (on top of a long range scope). It has windage/elevation and supposed to porject to 700yards (though I'd only use say out to 50yards).
im in CA which is one of the more restricted states and i still own 3 ARs, 2 AKs and an FAL
that dot would probably be a few feet wide at 700 yds
have 2 AKs and a FAL? artskits:
And 2 of those ARs are almost like mine. (you know what I mean by that, I hope)
well, i have the receivers for the 2 AKs, so yes
the FAL, no, thats still a parts kit. but it will become whole between may and august
hmm specs say 3 inches at 100 yards
which would be 21 inches at 700 yds? thats almost 2 feet so my original post isnt that far off.
My wife has a Remington 760 in .257-Roberts on her side of the safe. I've had access to it for almost 5 years now and still haven't shot it
The only pump rifle I've ever shot was a .22, anything else just seams weird.
Maybe this will be the year
sucks that you can't have nice shit in australia.
v = version
vs = versus
By the looks of that gun I think he got it right.
took me a second
Glad there's still some good guys in Australia!
