Testing the Shockwave Clipped & Pinned SUO Lower on Century Arms C93 Sporter HK 93 Clone

On Saturday I was able to test the Shockwave C & P "SUO" H&K Lower on my Century Arms C93 Sporter (HK 93 Clone).  It was very easy to install and guess what...?...It worked!  No tweaking, adjusting, messing around with anything!  The grip is really nice and a major improvement over the Navy style lower.  It made the rifle a lot nice to look at, and more importantly, a lot more fun to shoot.  For $50, you can't go wrong.  I definitely recommend this upgrade.

Smith & Wesson Model 469 9mm Pistol

S&W Model 469

Yet another trip to the countryside "range".  This time I spray painted some milk jugs neon orange, which looked pretty cool after being shot.  The holes showed up well from a distance as the dispersed the painted marked them.

James brought out a S&W Model 469 9mm semi-auto pistol.  It was pretty fun to shoot.  This pistol had a double-action trigger, which took some getting used to.  I came with a 12 round magazine, but I found out that it can use 59 series magazines which hold 15 rounds.  The pistol was all black, with an allow frame. 

The sights were not bad.  The pistol has a yellow line for the front sight and a white "post" for the rear.  It took a while to get used to.  We shot Federal and Remington brass 115 grain ammo.  No problems of any kind.  Overall, it was pretty fun and I wouldn't mind shooting this pistol again.

Romy SAR 3 Review

As I mentioned before, I have several different mags for my Romanian SAR 3 5.56x45 AK.  I love AK type rifles in 5.56x45, but the lack of standardized mags is a bit of a drawback.  However, with a bit of modification, several types of magazines can be used.  A few do not even need to be moded. 

The rifle came with what I believe is a modified AK 74 mag done by CAI.  The floorplate says .223, but it only feeds well with about 20 rounds.  I bought some Bulgy AK 74 mags and loaded them each with 20 rounds (I didn't try to load more than that).  They worked really well and I didn't even have to mod them!  The mags only cost $10 each.  I also took some Bulgarian "Circle 10" 5.56x45 mags that I moded by filing down the back a bit.  Those work the best.  No feeding issues at all.  I really like my Romy SAR 3.

Shockwave Clipped & Pinned SUO Lower on Century Arms C93 Sporter HK 93 Clone

Here is the first part of a review for the clipped and pinned SUO lower housings from Shockwave.

The lower is made for all HK weapons and clones, and is German-made for a Malaysian contract. I really like it.  The trigger pack from my C93 dropped right into the SUO lower.  The SUO lower looks a lot better than the Navy style housing that came with the rifle.

                                           The next step is to take it out to the range.

SAR 3 5.56x45 AK Rifle Sighted in at the Range

I took my SAR 3 and AK sight adjustment tool over to the range to sight it in at about 25 yards.  It was a lot of fun and zeroed in quite well.  One of the guys there commented on how he liked AK's and like the wood furniture on mine.  I let him try it and he really liked it.  He didn't know that some AK's are chambered for the 5.56x45 round and thought that was pretty cool.  He let me shoot his Rock River Arms AR pistol.  He had a nice red dot on it, and it was pretty fun too.

Here are some pics of my SAR 3 with the Sedona red Bulgarian wood  furniture that I refinished.  I took some Bulgy AK 74 mags and loaded them each with 20 rounds (I didn't try to load more than that).  They worked!  The mags only cost $10 each.  A day at the range is a good day indeed.
